FrontPagemag.com`s “White Nationalism” Symposium
“How does white nationalism differ from old
style white supremacy?” That was the first,
glacially impartial question in the
symposium on “White Nationalism” that
Frontpagemag.com`s Jamie Glazov just lured me into.
Wiser heads would have refused (at least one did). In
the event, I think the debate was dominated by
Jared Taylor. I just contributed a few witty asides.
I see someone in the enormous
discussion thread has complained that “Peter
Brimelow once had some useful things to say about
immigration, but now he has discovered the `joys` of
white nationalism.” In fact, I`ve always resisted
the argument, ably if less controversially advanced by
European-American group, that American whites should
accept that they are just another interest group and
organize explicitly. I think they`re Americans, dammit.
Nations are ethno-cultural entities; neither exclusively
ethnic nor exclusively cultural. Nevertheless, if mass
non-traditional immigration continues, American politics
will inevitably move in Taylor (and Calabro`s)
direction. Congratulations to Glazov and
David Horowitz for exploring these issues.
