Christianity Is White Nationalism – The Occidental Observer - by Hewitt E. Moore

 Most of my thoughts these days don’t pertain to the political realm, rather I tend to focus on the level of spiritual depravity that has led to our fallen state—our fallen state as individual people, due to our fallen state collectively as a people. To paraphrase Dostoevsky, there is a spiritual war going on between good and evil, and the battlefield is the heart of man. Nietzsche predicted the outcome for this battle with his statement, “God is dead.” He envisioned a post-theological society, the likes that would produce a nihilistic existence where every year 106,000 people die of drug overdose and 50,000 people commit suicide (70% of those are White men). That’s a million White men every 8 years that would rather kill themselves than exist within the status quo, and those numbers are rising. What a tragedy! It’s not a coincidence that God and White people are simultaneously dying off. Our existence has to have meaning for our children to have a future. Thus, the importance of faith.

What is faith? According to scripture, it is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Faith transcends reason, insofar as reason begets faith. Everything requires some degree of faith, we just take most of it for granted. Every aspect of religion is faith-based, and everyone is religious.

Religiosity is a fundamental essence of the human condition. Our individual belief-system is hierarchical, with our primary belief being not only our religion, but our central identity. You are mostly what you believe most.

To compare and contrast different religions is futile, and typically paved in self-righteousness. More precisely, it’s a discussion often rooted in pride (e.g., “My God is the real God, because that’s what I believe.”; “I’m too smart to believe in God.”). For Christians, pride is the root of all sin. It was Eve’s pride to “be like God” (Genesis 3:5) that introduced sin into the world. God’s letter to his people (the Bible) explains the origin of our sinful nature. Whether you choose to believe it or not is irrelevant to its validity. But if you want to analyze it philosophically, why has nobody (excluding Jesus) been able to lead a sinless life? Seems like it would be a simple thing to do.

Aside from the existential crisis and predispositions that lead to religion, why would a person in the Western world be a devout Christian? It’s certainly not cool or trendy. Why would one have the desire to pray, go to church, repent and attempt to live a life that rejects our fundamental human nature, which is sinful? What provokes that desire? Is it just a coincidence that you feel drawn to God? Jesus said, “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last…” (John 15:16).

Christianity preaches rejection of the world. To be connected to the world is to be disconnected from God. The Bible says, For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world (1 John 2:16). Christianity dislikes the world just as much as you do. And the world hates Christianity just as much as it hates you. Jesus said as much 2000 years ago, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” (John 15: 18–19). You can belong to the world, or you can belong to God, but you can’t belong to both.

As I mentioned in the opening sentence, I don’t ponder politics much these days. As a result, I don’t read from the political sphere as much as I used to (honestly, it’s depressing). But I recently came across an article titled, “Christian Nationalism Has Made Me Agnostic” by Jason Kessler, which prompted me write this piece. The purpose not being a prideful critique rooted in “My God is the true God,” but rather an antithesis which attempts to make the assertion that fundamentalist Christianity is essentially White Nationalism, as well as the direct link between God and the achievements of White people, which have undeniably brought humanity out of darkness.

Christianity brings forth a message known as “the good news.” It’s a miraculous message that inspires hope through God’s promise of salvation. God packaged that salvation unconditionally as a covenant (contract) which developed into a contract with a race of people—White people, who since have changed (blessed) the world inconceivably. Just for a second, try to imagine a world without White people.

Most White Nationalist-types are pessimists. So they will instinctively find reasons to discredit Christianity. Usually it’s something related to the “Jews.” And while from a theological perspective, that’s somewhat understandable, it’s not very pragmatic. The “Jews” referenced in the Bible aren’t the same people we call “Jews” today. While I assume that most people reading this will agree with that statement, it is also clearly stated in the prophesy of Christ, “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” (Revelations 2:9).

The intent here wasn’t to go down a rabbit hole, but rather to focus on the compatibility of Christianity and White Nationalism. If you were to walk into a fundamentalist Christian church on Sunday morning, what would you see?  Predominately, you would see White families who reject modernity (i.e., the world). If you were to ask them about their values, what would they say? They would typically say that they are family-orientated, against abortion, against homosexuality, adhere to gender roles, despise pornography, don’t watch much TV, vote Republican, work hard and want to lay a good foundation for the future of their children. How is that not White Nationalism? Sure, the majority probably aren’t explicitly racial or have negative opinions about Jews. And they probably don’t read White Nationalist websites, but so what? If these aren’t the people that you ideologically go to bat for, then who are? Why are you a White Nationalist?

I would posit that fundamentalist Christians are better representatives of White Nationalism than the vast majority of self-proclaimed White Nationalists. White Nationalism in the realm of practical politics should be based on actions and behaviors, not words and ideas. All the words, ideas, mantras and essays are redundant at this point. White Nationalists have been saying the same things over and over for 70 years.

For pro-Whites who have no interest in Christianity, the question is this: How serious are you about the future of White people? Do you think you’re just going to vote your way into an ethnostate? Are you waiting for minority status to reclaim your glory by way of a victim card? Do you just want to read essays that always focus on problems, yet never propose solutions? This isn’t intended to be a personal attack, the point being that there’s just not a lot of viable options. Here’s the fact of the matter: the modern world is unapologetically anti-White, and that’s not going to change anytime soon.

Speaking of essays, 10 years ago I wrote one titled, Is White Nationalism Real?. I concluded that paper with the following observation:

In conclusion, the term “real” is defined as having actual physical existence. With a very few minor exceptions, the White Nationalist movement would be better defined as a hobby of like-minded idealists. The reality of an all-White homeland in the foreseeable future (in America) is comparable to finding the end of a rainbow….

“Nothing ever becomes real until it is experienced” ~ John Keats

Back then I had this idea that White Nationalism could only be “real” on an explicit, macro level. That’s where I was wrong. White Nationalism only exists (with rare exceptions) on an implicit, micro level. It starts with community. It’s building communities within communities. Like Christianity, it takes effort. White Nationalism isn’t lingo or essays; It’s faith and family. It’s not hating Jews and blacks; It’s loving God and your people. In fact, these are the first two commandments of Jesus as stated in the gospel of Mark:

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:29-31)

You have millions and millions of “neighbors” in the US who think just like you do, they just might not say it the way you say it. There are lots of churches in the US who don’t approve of the world, they just might not do sermons in opposition to interracial marriage. Christianity is centered around the premise that God loved his people so much that he sent his Son to die by torture for your sins. How much do you love your people?

When Eve brought sin into the hearts of mankind, a perfect world ceased to exist. So, if you’re a White Nationalist waiting for the perfect storm to take us back to the glory days, then good luck. But if you’re looking for a savior and a pro-White plan, one exists that’s simple and effective: repent, join a fundamentalist church, reject the world, make babies and put your faith in God.

Love your God and love your people.

God bless!
