`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”
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
American Renaissance`s

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
Lou Calabro`s

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.
