Two Cheers for White Democracy

by Douglas Mercer

WHEN THEY had cleared the East of race scum the National Socialists planned to plant large colonies of German soldier-farmers there. Himmler believed that this was the White man’s ancestral homeland and that tilling the soil was the natural and healthy element of the White race. He had his scholars study the ancient Germans so that he could re-create their way of living in these new spaces.

Thomas Jefferson agreed. He hated the emerging capitalist system along with its urbanization and felt that only a broad-based democracy made up of virtuous yeoman farmers could maintain a republic.

History has vindicated him.

Unlike other countries in Central and South America, Costa Rica did not become home to aristocrats lording over huge plantations harboring slave labor. Rather, Costa Rica was a rural democracy and was thus able to retain its European identity.

In his anti-White book The American Dilemma, Gunnar Myrdal contrasts “folkways” and “stateways.” He said that the “American dilemma” was that America had a (to him) high set of ideals embodied in the so-called American Creed (equality), but also had the intractable and pernicious (to him) “racism” of the people themselves, and that these two things were in high tension. 

German scholar Heinrich Krieger, in the 1930s, traveled to Arkansas and made a thorough study of American race relations. He saw the same dilemma that Myrdal would see later; however, he came down firmly on the other side of this equation. He was heartily encouraged that the good sense of the American people caused them to give only cursory lip service to the “creed”; and that they were maintaining their racial pride and identity in the face of the paper 14th Amendment.

Blood is thicker than paper.

Krieger’s only criticism of the American people is that they were not applying their justifiably draconian race laws to Jews, but he held out hope that that might change in the future.

Any law is illegitimate if it does not conform to the needs of the race. Any elite is illegitimate is it does not serve the interests of the race. 

Nineteenth century democracy needs no more complete vindication for its existence than the fact that it kept for the White race the best portions of the New World’s surface, temperate America and Australia. Had these regions been under aristocratic government Chinese immigration would have been encouraged precisely as the slave trade is encouraged of necessity by any slave-holding oligarchy, and the results would have been far more fatal to the White race. But the democracy, with the clear instincts of race selfishness, saw the race foe and kept out the dangerous alien. The presence of the Negro in our Southern states is a legacy from a time when we were ruled by a transoceanic aristocracy. The whole civilization of the future owes a debt of gratitude far greater than words can express to that new democratic polity which kept the New World as a priceless heritage for White people. 

So said Secretary of the Navy Theodore Roosevelt in 1897.

Most of South and Central America under King and corporation became a hellish den of miscegenation; North America presided over by the people became a nice White country.

What Roosevelt might have said is that when White people truly rule themselves in a truly participatory democracy they will always zealously guard their race interests. But when a vast concentration of wealth arises it creates all-powerful and insular elites. These elites in turn become de-nationalized and de-racialized and cocooned away from the people; and so their interests diverge from them; thus they bring in masses of immigrants or slaves (is there a difference?). Prior to the rise of the Jews, these elites brought in these aliens for one and one reason only: money.

And thus the worm is in the apple; the snake in the grass.

There goes the nice White country.

American slavery imported the progenitors of future enemies, and it hurt the mass of working White people at the time, too. And the sick, disgusting sexual practices of many plantation owners created a population of dangerous half-breeds. .

American slavery was worse than a crime; it was a blunder.

Roosevelt’s cherished 19th century democracy, his democracy of White people, began to be subverted by the end of that century.

A vast conglomeration of wealth occurred, and along with it came mass immigration. This is no coincidence. One follows the other like night follows day. When the early Jeffersonian democracy faded, when ordinary Americans no longer had much role in ruling their country, when “by the people” became an empty phrase, the interests of the people were tossed aside. And the people’s overriding interest was keeping their country White.

The “Free Soil” of the early Republicans meant free of Black people.

And as to that conglomeration of wealth in the hands of the few, that was what Roosevelt’s trust-busting was about. It was a dispersal of power back to the people so that their ideas on how to run the country could re-emerge.

The 1920s saw a flourishing White renaissance, with immigration restriction and race laws flourishing and popular.

The Depression also sealed America off from immigrants to some extent, because the mania of the immigrants themselves to come to America ceased.

Better to be poor and White than rich and mongrelized. (That’s something that still applies in the Rust Belt, upstate New York, western Pennsylvania, parts of Ohio, and some points west to a good degree.)

But in our day the unbridled rule of capital has again created giant transnational corporations, and power, in the hands of the few. With this, money rules, and “democracy” becomes a sham. And along with it comes the ever-present lurking evil: the importation of masses of immigrants.

If left to themselves, the American people would put an end to the flood of aliens into their country, both legal and illegal. But now the American people are never left to themselves. 

Capital always dreams of a borderless world.

Elites always dream of a borderless world.

White self-rule dreams of its own people, its own folkways, its own future.

Himmler was fascinated by an old Germanic institution called a Thing. The Thing was a governing assembly in early Germanic society made up of free people of the community presided over by a “lawspeaker.” The word appears in Old Norse, Old English, modern Icelandic, Middle English, Old Saxon, Old Dutch, Old Frisian, German, and Afrikaans.

Thus this practice is deeply ancestral and represents a primitive and basic belief of White peoples about how to order community affairs.

It is an assemblage which happened in a space called the Thingstead or Thingstow.

It is farmer-solider, yeoman farmer, rural democracy.

It is imprinted in the White soul and will always be a means to protect our living space from racial infiltration.

It is above all the clarion call of White freedom.

But when the epitaph of America is written, it will say that this was a people who loved freedom, but who were ruled over by people who loved cheap labor more.

We can’t give three cheers for democracy. It failed to prevail. It was corrupted. It succumbed to our enemies. And now, after decades of Jewish media lies, the people themselves are corrupted. So we need something new, something better. Something greater. Something certain. Something that will not fail.

But here’s two cheers for democracy. White democracy, that is.

There is nothing wrong with equality as long as it is among true equals.

What a great article ! And from a particular point of view and perspective not often
seen, but important, and certainly worth expressing. I’m saving it.

Yes – the chinese exclusion Act = the best idea ever IMO and I have framed it as an example of wise foresight and even prescience by Men of the past. Being here in California – sadly now – I can tell you first hand that chinese and now indian immigration is ruining / has ruined it – for me at least.(By the way, failing to capitalize is deliberate :) The street my family moved to in 1970 is now nearly 50% one or the other of those objectionable 2 groups, whereas nearly all White families with children back then. It seems the floodgates were really opened in the 80s with the settling of large groups of Vietnamese. It doesn’t take much imagination to see with their burgeoning populations (compared… Read more »

I, too, found this one of the best articles on NV that I’ve read in months. Great job!

Any idea where one can find copies of Heinrich Krieger’s books? Undoubtedly they are in German, but I read German. Krieger’s Das Rassenrecht in den Vereinigten Staaten (Racial Law in the United States) yielded several results, but no copy of this book was available for less than $500. It would be nice to find a book on this subject written from a pro-White point of view, but I don’t know of any in English.

If I can get my hands on a copy somehow, I’ll translate it myself. I doubt if the copyright is still in effect, since it was published in 1936. As I said, however, the only copies that I found cost $500+, and those were on

Theodore Roosevelt may have had some loyalty to the white race at one time but he was more loyal to the New World Order bankers. He instigated the war between Japan and Tsarist Russia and cheered Russia’s defeat which set the stage for the Bolshevik takeover of Russia. He also entered the 1912 Presidential election splitting the Republican vote by running as a third party candidate.and giving the presidency to jew stooge Woodrow Wilson who not only brought in The Federal Reserve Banking System and the Income Tax Law but also brought America into World War I, the defeat and double-cross of Germany at Versailles, the deaths of 118000 American soldiers-most of whom were drafted, and the creation of the state of Israel.

TR was not clairvoyant; he could not have known what the Wilson administration would do, and he ran to win in 1912, not to make Wilson president. He also could not have foreseen the Bolshevik revolution, of which he was no supporter. I am unaware of anything he may have done to instigate the Russo-Japanese War, although I do know that he mediated the peace settlement. The British government was intimately involved the war, aiding the Japs against the Russians.

There was no way TR was going to win the election running as a third party, his goal was to prevent Taft from a second term as Taft was against the jew banks and their Federal Reserve banking takeover and TR was a pro-jew banker tool which is why he was also pro-British (Rothschild) and anti-Tsar.(no jew central bank). Here is some info on TR and the Russo-Japan War: “By the turn of the century, this astonishing advancement of Japan has made her a formidable military force capable of taking on Russia. The Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05 is heavily financed by Jacob Schiff – another elite Jewish international financier, associate of the Rothschild Dynasty, and political backer of Teddy Roosevelt. Japan’s naval might is also greatly enhanced by state-of-the art vessels made in Rothschild’s Britain.… Read more »

Although far from perfect, the Russian government seems to be far better than any other government now existing in once former white nations. So far Putin is resisting the idea of opening Russia to non-white immigration, even though the Russian population appears to still be declining. There is so much open land in Russia, especially in the east, and much of it magnificent territory. Perhaps it would be wise to encourage white immigration to Russia from the dying West.

I can believe that Perfidious Albion would have done such a thing. Aiding Japan to defeat Imperial Russia is just the sort of statecraft they have practiced for centuries. Although they now have no significant military power, Britain is even more hostile to Putin’s Russia than the US is.

BTW, if anyone wants to get a good rundown on what is going on in US and British foreign policy regarding Russia, listen to Alexander Mercouris on Youtube.

Oh, and thank-you Douglas Mercer for another excellent piece.
