America: Founded as a White Nation

Washington as ZeusI hold this truth to be self-evident: that the United States of America was at its inception founded as a country of, by, and for White people, regardless of what it has become or degenerated into today.

by James Harting

THE ELITES ruling America today, and the Jews prime among them, have replaced the traditional definition of America as a White people’s country with the peculiar notion that it is a “propositional nation.” This pipe-dream holds that that anyone, from anywhere in the world and of whatever race or ethnicity, can become an American if they agree with certain sugary platitudes about racial equality, equal opportunity, democracy, and so forth, and if they embrace some version of the capitalist fantasy in which everyone can theoretically become a millionaire if they just work hard enough. (ILLUSTRATION: Washington Enthroned by Horatio Greenough)

But the indisputable historical reality is that America was not founded as a “propositional nation” open to everyone in the world, but as a White people’s republic.

The Founding of America

The noted National-Socialist thinker Matt Koehl commented on the racial origins of the United States in his 1973 essay, “America: A Racial Mission.” He wrote:

Before the coming of the first Europeans, the concept of ‘America’ didn’t exist — either as a nation or as a geographical term.

American history did not begin until the first White men set foot on these shores. Our history began as an extension of European — i.e., White, Western, or Aryan — history.

The pre-Columbian aborigines scattered across the North American continent and periodically engaging in inter-tribal warfare certainly did not regard themselves as ‘Americans,’ or for that matter, as members of one, single community.

So, even before it was an independent country, America was already a racial-political expression of the White Man. Indeed, that the US was conceived of as a White people’s republic is manifest in its very foundational documents, such has the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America.

The Declaration of Independence

Proponents of the dishonest notion of racial equality love to quote the following passage of the Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Stirring stuff, and when ripped from its historical context and cited in isolation, it does apparently support the bizarre concept of racial equality.

The reality, however, is that Jefferson was speaking metaphorically, not literally, and within a very circumscribed definition of “all men.” He himself owned dozens (perhaps hundreds) of primitive Negro slaves, none of whom he considered as the equal of any free White man.

In penning this passage, Jefferson was paraphrasing the Virginia Declaration of Rights, authored by George Mason. That document holds that “all men are equally free and independent” before the law. This sentiment would be understood in the context of the times to contrast with the British legal notion, that all men were not equal before the law, that is, that the royalty and nobility had legal rights that ordinary free citizens (“commoners”) did not have. It was further understood that by “men,” Mason and Jefferson meant White, male, adults — and no one else. (Mason, it should be noted, was another slave-holder, along with George Washington and other of the Founding Fathers.)

Elsewhere in the Declaration, Jefferson revealed his attitude (and those of the other Founding Fathers who signed the document) towards the race gently referred to today as “Native Americans,”

[King George III] has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

“Merciless Indian savages!” That is certainly not a ringing endorsement of racial equality and tolerance!

The Declaration was written in 1776. Some eleven years later, the US Constitution was drafted. It is much more racialist, both implicitly and explicitly.

The Constitution of the United States of America

Although it unfortunately does not always use racially explicit language, the Constitution is essentially a White racialist document. It divides the population of the US into three categories: (1) Negro slaves, called here “Other Persons”; (2) Indians; and (3) “We the People,” meaning, obviously, White people, if we subtract Negroes and Indians from the total population.

The low estimation in which the Founding Fathers held Blacks is reflected in the so-called “Three-Fifths Compromise,” found in Article I, Section Two, paragraph three. It reads:

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.

The meaning here is that for purposes of apportioning representatives to Congress, which is determined by the population of each state, Blacks counted for only three-fifths of a White person. That Negroes are referred to here as “Other Persons” is especially telling: the Constitution specifically sets them apart from “We the (White) People.”

Also mentioned in that paragraph are Indians, who are put in the same category as Blacks for purposes of taxation. Further in the Constitution, Congress is granted the specific power of dealing with Indians, who are not defined or considered as citizens:

Congress shall have the Power … To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes…[Art. I, Sect. 8, para. 3]

The Constitution was ratified in 1788; it was not until 1924 that Congress granted citizenship to all Indians in the US who were not explicitly granted citizenship by a previous treaty.

So we see that although it did not always define the racial character of the new American republic clearly, the Founding Fathers were thinking and acting along racial lines.

The Naturalization Act of 1790

Perhaps the Framers came to some belated realization that they needed to speak more clearly concerning race and the law. The Naturalization Act of 1790, setting out who may become a citizen of the new American nation, states explicitly,

That any alien, being a free White person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States, for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof…

You cannot get any clearer than that!

The United States of America was founded as a country of White people, by White people and for future generations of White children.

Anyone who says otherwise is either ignorant or a liar.

Into the Darkness

Today, in 2014, the majority of elementary school children in the US are non-White, and the percentage of non-Whites grows each day as the percentage of White children declines: that is the future that the ruling elites have in mind for us.

The US is, supposedly, a democracy. Yet the government has never asked the White population if they agreed to allow themselves to become extinct. There has been no public national debate. Instead, White genocide is being foisted on us without consultation or permission.

Those White people who are racially aware need to decide whether they are going to meekly acquiesce to their extermination — or if they are going to rise up and fight back.

A wise man once wrote:

If, through the instrument of governmental authority, a people is being led to its destruction, then rebellion is not only the right of every member of that people, it is his duty.

and

Those who want to live, let them fight; and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.

    The federal principle destroyed statehood. The Constitution and Declaration of Independence are dead letters. The general government collapsed into consolidated despotism about 70 years after megalomaniac compact styled Constitution was put in service. The so-called framers of the Constitution should made iot very clear that all states would retain their sovereignty after signing the paper.

    “Before the coming of the first Europeans, the concept of ‘America’ didn’t exist — either as a nation or as a geographical term.”

    Neither did the name “America” exist.

    America is named after the Italian (white) explorer, Amerigo Vespucci, who discovered the mainland after Columbus (another Italian, though possibly Jewish) discovered the West Indies. It is all from the European perspective. The Indians were not Americans (as in “Native Americans”) because they were not citizens and did call this land America.

    This land was never intended to be for one race or one religion. Especially since the land was stolen and the Natives were genocided for the land.

    It is true to say ‘Whites were in America First’ is ‘not an argument’ for it is a statement of fact (putting aside the native savages).

    Oldest skeletal remains found so far in North America (about 13,000 yrs) have skulls with Caucasoid features; noticeably triangular nasal cavity opening, narrow cheek bones, relatively tall head, narrow/pointed chin, eye sockets that have noticeable squaring off.

    Oldest skeletal remains found so far with skulls having Asiatic mongoloid features go back about 9,000 yrs.

    White people stole the land, committed genocide on the Natives, read the stories on how the U.S. government literally send troops to massacre Natives including women and children, and enslaved black folks for centuries, splitting families, selling them, buying them like property, raping them, and now you guys have the audacity to say this is a white country?
    LMAO.
