Reversing the failure of the BNP

September 9, 2012

With the BNP now stagnating (if not imploding) it’s time to reconsider whether European-style populist politics are the way forward.

In demographic terms, the basic approach of the BNP has been to go after the working class white rump – those disgruntled whites who are feed up with the current establishment, but lack the means or opportunity to join those skilled or wealthy British whites who are fleeing overseas.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of limitations in focusing on the rump. Firstly it lacks money, secondly it lacks skills, and unlike the constituency of the centre left, it continues to shrink in the face of ongoing third world immigration engineered by the centre left.

If the BNP is going to attract more funding and talent, then it needs to become more appealing to more enterprising and wealthy voters and supporters, and to do this it needs to think outside the conventional nationalist box.

One of the contributing factors in Britain’s current predicament has been its decision to turn its back on the British Commonwealth and seek closer economic and political ties with Europe. But in doing so it’s created a lot of division between Britain and the white British Commonwealth.

Today, white Commonwealth (and other) citizens of British ancestry are shut out of Britain, while millions of non-white immigrants take their place. At the same time, white citizens in colonial countries are feeling increasingly apprehensive about becoming a minority in places which have been majority white for the last two centuries

If whites are indeed becoming a diaspora minority in the British Commonwealth, then, like the Jews and Chinese, they will need an indigenous homeland they turn to if things get too hostile on the periphery.

By easing work and residency requirements for persons of native British ancestry, the BNP could attract funding and support from outside Britain, particularly from whites in South Africa and resource rich Canada and Australia – the two nations which are increasingly becoming the economic engine room of the UK Commonwealth.

In addition to changing its immigration approach from a defensive stance to an offensive one, the BNP will also have to change its economic (and education) policies to appeal to more middle class voters – particularly those who are currently wasting their votes on the one trick pony UKIP. A good starting point would be look closely at the policies of other maverick nations like Israel and Switzerland.

In population terms, this “Israelification” of immigration policy could make Britain even more overcrowded, particularly in the short term, but given the desperate position in which Britain’s finds itself drastic political chemotherapy is essential.

Attacking the soft white underbelly (of political correctness)

August 22, 2012

White nationalists may have a reputation for being violent and unpleasant skinhead types, but maybe that their biggest marketing problem isn’t that they’re too mean, but that they’re too nice – especially towards greedy and hypocritical fellow whites.

White nationalist types always tend to focus their political anger towards non-whites – Jews, minorities and foreigners, but this doesn’t seem to achieve much. Like white nationalists themselves, non-white minorities will instinctively circle the wagons and stubbornly defend their tribe when attacked by the hostile other, and despite frequently publicised belly aches from minority leftists in the liberal media, few non-whites actually go as far as leaving majority white countries due to racism from whites.

In fact, many minority activists relish being attacked by white nationalists and are dependent on them for their livelihood. Without the white nationalist boogeyman, groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center would quickly go out of business, so it’s in their interest to keep the tiny white nationalist threat alive.

Instead of focusing their political attacks on non-white minorities who are well schooled in ethnocentric politics, white nationalists might be more successful if they directed their hostility towards those white liberals who treat them with so much contempt. After all, it’s often easier to attack those who aid and abet an enemy than it is to attack a determined enemy in a frontal assault.

Think of the Viet Con in the Vietnam War. When they attacked the powerful American forces directly, as they did during the Tet Offensive, they suffered heavy casualties and came off second best, but when they refocused on attacking American sympathizers among their fellow Vietnamese, they soon bought about the collapse of the pro-American south.

The Italians communists took a similar approach following the allied invasion of Italy in 1943. Rather than join the allies and attack the heavily armed Germans, they focused their efforts on persecuting ex-nationalists and conservatives behind allied lines (a popular communist tactic) with an eye to (successfully) cementing their power base in post-war Italy.

Not only are hypocritical white liberals an easier target than tenacious ethnocentric minorities, but they’re also more likely to give in easily when faced with a real fight.

Consider South African white liberals for example. When questioned about South Africa, they go on about how unjust the Apartheid regime was, yet they’re also terrified of the new rainbow republic and most of them scarper overseas as soon as they get the opportunity. Ironically, it’s the conservative Boer farmers who are most likely to stay on as they’re better armed and less easily intimidated then white urban liberals.

As well as going for obvious targets like middle class liberal intellectuals, white nationalists should also start campaigns to undermine white businesses which promote increased immigration.

In Australia, Gerry Harvey, Gina Rinehart and a number of other prominent business people have made explicit statements in support of mass immigration, yet as far as I’m aware their businesses have never been picketed by white nationalists or immigration restrictionists.

Maybe it’s time for a change of tactics.

The too much talking myth

February 23, 2012

The time for talking and writing is over, let’s take action!

This is a fairly common refrain among some alt-righters which shows a very naive understanding of practical politics and how the internet works.

The first assumption is that just because a few hundred people are busy writing blogs and comments, there already exists the foundation for a dynamic political movement.

 If only people would get off their computers and stop repeating themselves on the net we could start making some progress.

Now, sure there is quite a busy little blog and website scene, but the key word here is little. If you compare the alt – blog sphere with the internet presence of more mainstream political movements, it’s still extremely small. For example, for every US paleo-conservative blog there’s at least ten neoconservative blogs. Similarly the top mainstream bloggers get far more traffic. Popular alt-right bloggers like Dennis Mangan and Steve Sailer may seem to get a lot of hits compared with minnows like me, but compared to the likes of Michelle Mankin or Instapundit, there’s still small fry. If you want to use the internet as a tool for persuading large numbers of people you need to be able to be able to attract the same level of traffic as the mainstream bloggers, and at this stage only the BNP website seems to able to front it with the big boys in terms of visitor numbers (personally I’ve always wondered why so many people visit mainstream political blogs, when mainstream views are already covered by other media).

As well as being very small, the alt right scene is also very geographically scattered. If you want to organise meetings, street protests etc, you need critical mass – that is, a reasonably large number of people living in close proximity to one another so that it’s practical for them to meet face to face. At the very least, I’d say you’d need 20 committed activists living within a 50km radius of one another before you can start thinking about activism beyond the net. Mainstream political movements obviously have that kind of critical mass, fringe movements don’t.

Where the alt right does need to try harder is in terms of engaging in internet communication beyond the alt right sphere. Unless political bloggers make an ongoing effort to attract new readers, they often end up preaching exclusively to other bloggers they share links with or regular visitors with the same opinions and the same knowledge base.Newspaper comment boards are a potentially useful source of new recruits, but they’re becoming harder to access and don’t usually allow a direct link back to your blog. However, if you go to the bother of setting up a specific Facebook account for your blog you can still access a lot of newspaper comment boards.

Another way of reaching a wider audience is to publish essays or books on popular self-publishing sites like Scribd.com. These sites allow you to publish samples of ebooks and short essays for free, and are an excellent tool for promoting books which are published on other sites. I notice that political books, such as those by Patrick Buchanan, seem to get a lot of views at Scribed.
