The Real Lessons of Vietnam

American Dissident Voices broadcast of 19 October, 2019

A FEW WEEKS ago, National Alliance Chairman William White Williams sent me his transcription of a classic article from Instauration magazine from a quarter century ago, suggesting that it deserved to be republished and put on the air as an ADV program, and today’s show is the result. I’ve edited and expanded the piece for broadcast. It’s a lesson about what’s really important — and how those terrible, rotten Asian Communists were able to get something right — something that so many “right wing” constitution-loving American boomers from that era, with their Asian wives and childish “conservative” belief system, have gotten so, so wrong — and something that we must get right, or perish.

For the last several decades, there has been no surer guarantee of boredom and banality in American journalism than the appearance of the phrase “the lessons of Vietnam” in a Sunday supplement think piece. What accompanies it is invariably a lot of bogus “deep thinking” about “the American crisis of confidence” or lucubrations to that effect.

What is the real lesson of Vietnam? To me there was always something incomplete and unsatisfying about the standard interpretations. To the conservative the Vietnam War is viewed as an example of “America’s failure to stand by its friends” or at least a dramatic demonstration that military power should either be used massively or not at all. To many conservatives it was a “noble cause,” as Reagan observed. To liberals Vietnam was a case of imperial overreach which failed to take into account the “limits of power” and the strength of indigenous Third World nationalism. To Jewish Marxists, like Noam Chomsky, Vietnam was proof positive of the fundamental depravity and barbarism of American imperialism, fueled by capitalist hegemonists and Western “racists.” This was, after all, the war which inspired the Jewess Susan Sontag’s notorious quote about the White race being the “cancer of history.” The dispassionate observer must acknowledge that there are kernels of truth in all but Sontag’s position and Chomsky’s ridiculous “racist” interpretation. But is there another component in the Vietnam tragedy that may have been overlooked because of the current rigid ideological limits — particularly in regard to racial issues — which are so strictly enforced in American public life?

The real lesson of Vietnam was finally driven home to me while listening to a radio broadcast circa 1985. The experience could best be compared to the achievement of Satori in Zen Buddhism, i.e., instantaneous, total enlightenment and understanding resulting from years of patient work and self-discipline. The occasion was a broadcast on Amerasian children in Vietnam featured on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. According to the report, the Vietnamese government was then making a special effort to get all the Amerasian children out of Vietnam and into the U.S. The urgency was a result of the fact that the oldest of those children were entering reproductive age. Obviously, Hanoi did not want their offspring entering into the Vietnamese gene pool.

I could only shake my head and laugh bitterly. Great vistas of understanding opened up before me. I had been blind, but now I could see. The tremendous powers of resistance exhibited by the forces of Vietnamese Communists as they stoically withstood the crushing blows of the American technological jackhammer was not a product of their allegiance to vague Marxist doctrines of class war or a “workers’ paradise.” It was a product of Vietnamese racial consciousness and racial feelings. For nearly a century the Vietnamese had been deeply humiliated — first by the French and then by the Washington regime. The burning desire to escape this mortifying subservience provided the inner will which enabled Vietnamese peasant boys to withstand earth-shaking “shock and awe” carpet bombing from huge, almost endless armadas of B-52s so high above they were invisible. Moreover, this diamond-hard Vietnamese racialism was no new thing. Long before the advent of French colonialism, the Vietnamese had acquired a powerful sense of peoplehood in the course of their resistance to Chinese oppression.

Despite the impression given by this photograph, not all of the Amerasians were half-White.

Remember the great “mystery” as to why “our” Vietnamese were militarily worthless while the North Vietnamese were such formidable foes? The South Vietnamese soldier had been put in the excruciating position of fighting beside, not against, his White humiliators. After the Cuban Revolution of 1959, Fidel Castro was once quoted as saying that Cuba “would never again be an American brothel.” The South Vietnamese soldier was asked to risk life and limb in an effort to maintain a similar American brothel in the southern half of Vietnam. In so doing, he had to accept the further humiliation of being told how to fight by paternalistic Western advisers. Surely those South Vietnamese soldiers were well aware of the low opinion that the Americans held of them and their military skills. Inwardly they must have felt themselves to be just what the Vietnamese Communists called them all along: “puppet troops.” Furthermore they were required to endure silently what the disgusting American soldiers — Black and White — were doing to Vietnamese women.

From the perspective of White Americans, there is obviously enormous historical irony — and perhaps even tragedy — in all of this. As all of us who lived through that time well know, the loudest voices raised against the American participation in the war and in support of Vietnamese nationalism belonged to those liberals, radicals and non-Whites who also worked then (and now) against “racism” in the U.S. All those Jewish suburban class warriors of the Students for a Democratic Society who in 1964 agitated for “civil rights” in Mississippi and in 1968 shouted, “Ho, Ho, Ho Chi Minh. The NLF is gonna win!” were simultaneously supporting the powerful racialism of the Vietnamese while savagely attacking the racial consciousness of White Americans. The success of this campaign is clearly indicated by the racial dynamics inherent in that National Public Radio report about the half-White (or half-Black)/half-Vietnamese hybrids. While the Vietnamese were practicing a doctrine of racial purity straight out of an SS manual, the U.S. has become, in effect, the world’s racial dumping ground. Consequently, when the Vietnamese decided to get those Amerasian children out of their gene pool, the logical place was to dunk them in our muddied gene pool.

One may argue that Marxist Communism is an alien system, as harmful and unnatural to Vietnamese as it is to us. But even under such a system, the Vietnamese people did the right thing in this case. They are proud of what they are. They want “what they are” to continue to exist on this Earth. And they did what was necessary to achieve that goal.

How much longer will Americans tolerate a system that is so much worse even than outright Marxist Communism — so much worse that it declares immoral and criminal any act or utterance that tends to the preservation of its founding people?

How much longer can a system founded upon such massive inner contradictions survive? As most of you probably know already, the only thing more certain than death and taxes is that the American racial situation is going to get worse — much worse. Eventually it will get to the point where we American Whites will finally recognize that our collective existence is endangered, just as a person with a gun pointed at his head recognizes that his own existence is endangered. No human being can casually submit to such mortal danger, the will-to-live being the single most powerful human drive. As unlikely a prospect as it now seems, some day White people’s will-to-live will exert itself. Perhaps then the world will witness acts of heroism and fearlessness on our part comparable to the courage and fearlessness exhibited by the Vietnamese peasant soldiers in the face of America’s high-tech military onslaught.

* * *

We have it in us. We have it in us times ten. We have it in us with a fury — and a genius to go along with that fury — that the world has never seen before. As Dr. William Pierce taught us, a day is coming — a day that the men and women of the National Alliance are preparing for even now — when we will set loose the storm.

Woodrow Wilson was actually supporting the Slavic White Russians against the multicultural Bolshevik Reds after World War I. The jews convinced him to abandon the White Russians and the Reds won the war. Japan actually invaded China in the 1930s to stop Communism and were even allies with Chiang Kai-shek and the Nationalist Chinese until the Communists kidnapped him. The jews engineered the attack on Pearl Harbor and Japan was defeated in World War II. In the mid 1930s racially-conscious Nationalist Germany invited racially-conscious Nationalist Poland to join the Anti-Comintern Pact against multicultural Communist Russia. The jews convinced racially-conscious Nationalist Poland not to join the Anti-Comintern Pact against multicultural Communist Russia. After racially-conscious Nationalist Germany and multicultural Communist Russia invaded Poland in 1939 the jews convinced Britain and France to… Read more »

National Vanguard: “After the Cuban Revolution of 1959, Fidel Castro was once quoted as saying that Cuba “would never again be an American brothel.” The South Vietnamese soldier was asked to risk life and limb in an effort to maintain a similar American brothel in the southern half of Vietnam.” The Vietnam War was a mistake, and the 50,000 US troops who died in it died for nothing. During the height of the war I was around fourteen , watching nightly as Walter Cronkite of CBS News showed the fighting in America’s living rooms. Every single night. Looking back, this war was the beginning of the end of the America which, during the same period, put men on the Moon. That incredible achievement was nullified by the failure of Vietnam,… Read more »

Is it good for the jews? Cultural Marxism is one of the the strategies they’ve been using against America and Europe since Karl Marx dreamed it up starting in the 1840s. It got a major beachhead here in 1935 after Hitler kicked the Frankfurt School jews out of Germany. After the jews duped America into defeating Hitler and they attained almost complete control of the media they kicked it up a few notches using the Vietnam War and their black “civil rights” puppets at the NAACP as psychological weapons against the distracted masses and once they got accelerating momentum they pushed it to full throttle with mass immigration, gay rights and feminism while at the same time shoring up support for Israel by brainwashing tens of millions of Sco-tards. who… Read more »

Magnificent Quote: “Mr. Bush, you will find those “weapons of mass destruction” in Viet Nam. The United States Government left thirty billion dollars worth of military equipment there for the communists when we pulled out. Are you going to bring any of that home with you? If so, I hid a fifty caliber machine gun there in the 25th Aviation Battalions arms room on the air strip at Cu Chi. When I was acting arms room sergeant for a short time, I traded a LRRP team member (long range reconnaissance patrol) one brand new M60 for it. It is underneath the arms counter wrapped in cosmoline in a water tight box. I bet the commies never found it. I would like to have it back. Sometimes I have dreams about… Read more »

I hate it when they say, ‘He gave his life for his country.’ They don’t die for the honor and glory of their country. We kill them.
~Rear Admiral Gene R. LaRocque

I hate those men who would send into war youth to fight and die for them; the pride and cowardice of those old
men, making their wars that boys must die.
~Mary Roberts Rinehart

“I hate those men who would send into war youth to fight and die for them”

This contrasts with the ancient Spartans who, if they had fathered sons, went to fight. The sons remained behind to continue their family line.

To assert that “..The Boomers…and their wives” had anything to do with Vietnam in 1965 is silly.
The age of the oldest Boomers was only 17 years old in 1965.
FYI – “Boomers” had absolutely nothing to do with the Hart-Sellar Act or The Equal Rights Amendment.
Another common misconception too frequently made.

The Boomer Bracket is 1946 to 1964. The oldest Boomers became 19 years old in 1965. The Boomers bled out in Vietnam. The body bags were coming 100 a week. This Age of modern racism is poorly educated. That’s what comes from growing up in the nonstop wigger generation.

Boomers are the last youth generation to date that had the courage of its conviction. We told the criminal establishment to f**k off. Down in Texas when the rodeo cowboys, hippies and biker got together–we called it running with the Ropers, Dopers and Chokers. Willie Nelson and like-minded singers brought the hippies and rednecks together by listening to the same music. 10 thousand Boomers showed up at Nelson’s Dripping Springs outdoor concert. We aint Exile Puritans.

I have no argument with your words, Mr. Strom. I just want to make clear that Boomers are the last generation to stay White. Race mixing was so nil that it was never a topic of conversation. We grew up under the fitful cloud of the WW2 generation. We grew tired of the braggarts speak of their victory in Europe.

Correction: 60 thousand people attended Willie Nelson’s Dripping Springs (Texas) country music festival. Nelson said: “It was actually the first time the hippie and the redneck had gotten together.”

And btw, speaking of ¨Amerasian¨ offspring, just looking around today at this utter bastardized thing called Amerika, I am continually presented with freakish mixes of creatures that represent all on their own the mammoth perversion that is this vast shopping mall between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Our fathers and mothers of just two generations ago would have been utterly appalled at these biological chimeras walking around in our midst. And speaking of ¨our¨ midst, what would they think of their country (and they could legitimately have thought of and called the land then…a country) plummeting from an 89 – 90% nation of Whites to one of about 60% today? This would have been a scenario that WOULD HAVE HAUNTED THEIR EVERY WAKING AND SLEEPING…moment.
