The sentry’s challenge
Qui vive is the French sentry’s
challenge, the equivalent of "Who goes there?" Except, the literal
meaning of qui vive conveys the timeless common sense of the French
peasant who puts his trust only in blood ties, deeds to land, and in gold coins
in a jar under the plum tree. For qui
vive means “Who moves there?” but also "Who lives?"

American comedienne and blogger, Julia Gorin, described two years ago how bus
riders in Richmond, Virginia started calling the local Transit
Authority to find out why signs in Arabic had started turning up on buses. The
signs were in fact innocuous phrases such as "Paper or
plastic?", and they were the work of the [Christian]
Virginia Interfaith Center,
which had placed them as part of an effort to disassociate Arabic script from
Associated Press and other MSM scoffed at these citizens' concerns. The white, Christian sponsors of the
pro-Muslim campaign stated that “Americans can learn to let go of irrational
fears toward other cultures.” But Gorin wrote, "Islam and our media
want us to hit the snooze button again."
West’s ruling elites have brought us tens of millions of Third
World aliens to serve man. And, to serve man and the elite’s own vanity
and material ambitions, they have put many of the aliens’ alienated children,
and indigenous alienated racial minorities, in positions of power and
responsibility for which they are unqualified. They are qualified, however, to
use those positions to greatly enhance their own tribal interests and thereby
soothe the inflamed conscience of the white Pods.
I ended Part 1 with the
notion that we need a political organization of global presence and local
manifestation. I called it provisionally the Nonpod Party. The name Antipod
Party is perhaps more on target, with its additional connotations of geographic
symmetry and antonymy to Antifa. I’ll use Antipod as a handle of convenience henceforward. Still, “party” does not begin to convey what
we need and what we are up against.
need is to reconstitute as a tribe, with its own culture, totems and taboos (which
will be explored in subsequent installments). We need to realize that the overwhelming
majority of the nonwhite minorities in our countries act as tribes, and our
white Pod elites act as pathfinders and enforcers for these tribes, against us.
is no need to denigrate tens of millions of people by misinterpreting the
preceding paragraph. Most of the 30 million Muslims in Western Europe, or 40
million blacks in the United
States do not have predatory designs versus the
white-majority nations that harbor them.
But they do have among them large numbers of individuals who either are
criminals or espouse criminal and genocidal views. And most of their co-ethnics,
who may not support such activities and views directly, seem to condone them out
of fear or feelings of tribal solidarity.
on a milder level, with America’s
45 million Hispanics for instance, in-group membership trumps civic membership.
It’s a tribal phalanx competing for money, jobs, political and cultural
influence against a much larger but thinly spread ragtag crew of whites devoid
of common purpose or identity.
of Hispanics support Obama; 21% support McCain. The votes go to where the
Hispanic gravy train is longer, and the border open wider. In a country where
presidential elections can be decided by a margin of 0.5 % of the votes, the
fatal dullness of three generations of Americans has transferred control over
their nation largely to the citizens of Mexico.
countries are ruled by a cabal of true believer Pods and cynical opportunists.
The former are innocent of the notion of tribalism, refuse to perceive it in
others, deny that it exists, and do everything in their considerable power to
implement a multicultural reality under which minority tribes displace and
dispossess the non-tribal majority whose allegiance is civic rather than
tribal. The cynics exploit the resulting turmoil for their own gain.
Up from Conservatism
Listing in Part 1 common denominators of what I now call Antipods, I omitted the most obvious one, conservatism, for a reason.
We are of a conservative, Burkean disposition. By principle, we detest high taxes and wealth-transfer programs. We cannot accept that our piggybanks built over generations of sacrifice and hard work are being raided to transfer their contents to low-skill, low-motivation immigrants and indigenous minorities who are unable and unwilling to build their own wealth though their own sacrifice and hard work. Not to speak of the banishment of piggy banks, per se, as relics of the pre-dhimmi past.
We consider phrases like”political and economic justice”— a favorite of Mr. Obama -- an outrage against actual justice. We recoil at the Podian idea of justice as empathy dispensed by semi-sovereign judges to their favored victim classes.
We are against out-of-control public spending, excessive regulations, legal system abuse, and suppression of free speech. We hate the state’s tyrannical invasion of our privacy and personal freedom to prevent or control social dysfunctions that the state itself has caused through its reality-averse policies.
such dysfunctions are narrow, e.g. terrorism by Asian Muslims or out of
control crime by young, colored males .
But the state’s measures apply to all, e.g. in airport security checks or
firearms prohibition, in effect punishing the broad mass of citizens for the
state’s own mismanagement of immigration and law enforcement.
But perhaps an Antipod can no longer
call himself Conservative. Conservatism is now a regressive movement as
incapable of grasping modern asymmetric warfare as the planners of Mr. Bush’s
invasion of Iraq
were. Starting with the notion that for
the left politics is warfare, and for conservatives it’s a civil contest. It’s a head-butt in a dark alley versus a
polite bow and 16 oz
boxing gloves in the sunlight. The Barack Obama versus John McCain presidential
contest is the apotheosis of this metaphor.
Emphasis on American
conservatism in the Western context discussed here is necessary because that’s
where the world center of gravity of conservatism has been since Hitler’s
madness sent to the New World such Old
Worldists as Ludwig von Mises, Friedrich von Hayek, Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn and Eric Voegelin.
Then, in 1955, William F. Buckley stood athwart history, yelling Stop. The rest is history.
But then things went awry. Mutant barnacles such as
neoconservatism, doctrinaire libertarianism and compassionate conservatism
weighed down the old ship until it finally crashed on the rocks of the Iraq War
and the meltdown of the American economy.
Conservatism is now a spoiled brand. It needs to be rethought and rebranded. I don’t know what it should be called, maybe Originalism or Antipodism, but it must get away from its Texas hold’em or New York mutations and return to its European roots: Austrian economics, Germanic Protestant work ethic, Roman-Catholic cultural genius, Anglo-Saxon and Celtic concepts of liberty. This might include as common patrimony more particular elements of the white peoples’ greatness, from Flemish painting to German music to Italian gastronomy, to American dynamism and self-reliance. More on this later.
For all the heavy dose of Eurocentricity advocated here, it’s the American thinker and tragic outcast, Samuel Francis, whose definition of true conservatism could perhaps best serve as a basis for Antipodism: “The survival and enhancement of particular peoples and their institutionalized cultural expressions.”
has an iconic significance going back to Roman times, representing secrecy and
preserved in the expression sub rosa. The connotation is not
necessarily negative. One of Holland’s greatest adopted sons, Benedict Spinoza,
wore a rose signet to remind himself that he ought to keep grinding lenses and
refrain from publishing, except sub rosa or posthumously, to protect
himself from enraged Christian and Jewish men of small mind.
Perhaps the digitus impudicus could serve as a symbol of the antidote. An ancient gesture of resistance and derision, it spans Western Civilization back to its first recorded use in Aristophanes’ play, The Clouds.
Part of our task is to reclaim our languages. “Deviate” is a non-PC word, but it does not stand
for moral condemnation. It simply denotes the subject’s position on a Gaussian
distribution curve that deviates substantially from the mean.
The person who conceived this insanity is the (black female PhD) Director of Equity & Race
for the Seattle Public Schools. She posted it on the official website, but
following a public outcry, the webpage was removed and replaced with this.
Supporting the term coup d’état, I have five single-spaced pages of links to
reports about the Obama camp’s vote rigging, illegal contributions, voter
intimidation, violence and blackmail applied against prospective voters for the
McCain/ Palin ticket.
