Richard Spencer made some excellent points in his recent blog on how “Euroscepticism” is, in his mind, a flawed, politically correct stand-in for more fundamental and effective identitarian action, like demanding an immediate halt to immigration and an active defense of Europe’s borders that prevents invaders from setting foot on European soil in the first place.
One cannot dispute that the national governments of Western Europe have implemented catastrophic immigration policies that are transforming Europe into Beirut circa 1985. In simpler times, White men across the Old Continent would have stormed their respective capitols by now and given the occupants a Freikorps swim lesson.
Yet the question of the European Union must be viewed from our current strategic standpoint. Spencer believes that the European Union could theoretically be commandeered and used for our purposes, though he has no illusions about the long odds of success. Unfortunately, the EU was carefully structured to prevent this. Centralized power in our current situation only gives our opponents more of an opportunity to crush dissent. The EU’s continued existence is so poisonous to Europe that it must be marginalized and humiliated at every possible opportunity, until we have the resources to destroy and replace it.
1. The EU Makes the Immigration Crisis Worse
Spencer correctly notes that the national governments of Europe caused the current immigration crisis. But when it comes to ritualizing the death of the world’s greatest civilization, the national governments are just the altar boys. The EU is the archdiocese.
EU bureaucrats are now openly bullying member states that refuse to accept Muslim migrants. As of this writing, the European Commission is threatening to fine each member state $290,000 for each refusal.
Given recent national pushback from countries such as Hungary, Poland, and Austria, the threats are obviously aimed at them— the very countries who have resisted the most and who have the best long-term prospects for surviving the current invasion.
Even worse, the EU will soon admit Europe’s deadliest ancestral foe into its membership—Turkey. Once that happens, 79 million Turks will be able to move throughout the Continent, which is currently home to about 508 million people. In other words, a full 13 percent of EU citizens will soon hail from a nation
that is not only regressing towards an Islamic dictatorship, but is aggressively sponsoring the al-Nusra jihadist militia in Syria and Iraq. If there are any doubts about the political leverage enjoyed by the current Turkish Islamic regime, consider that President Erdogan has already pressured German Chancellor Angela Merkel into prosecuting Germans who criticize him from their own homes.
Although some European leaders make a public show of opposing
Turkish ascension, the European Commission formally proposed this month that Turks be given visa free travel throughout Europe immediately, even before the details of Turkey’s membership are finalized. Given the bloodshed in the Middle East and increasing Muslim rape and terrorism in Europe, is there any reason to think that a sudden, massive Turkish/Islamic appearance upon European soil in 2016 will be any more positive than it was in 1683? Would not this nightmare scenario be prevented by a decisive exit of EU member states?
Our ancestors bled and died to keep our homeland free from the Ottoman Muslims. Today, Islam need not resort to scimitars and horsebows to enslave a continent—thanks to the EU, they only need to show up and have lots of sex. The EU lectures us on sex equality while
Muslim hordes gang rape and murder the defenseless, just as they did after sacking Constantinople in 1453. How
can any son of Europe countenance an institution that would facilitate a repeat of this abomination?
2. The EU Attracts and Personifies the Hostile Elite
Earlier this week, Spencer found himself in a Twitter conversation about the role of women in defeating nationalist FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer in the race for the Austrian Presidency. Spencer remarked, “Women aren’t inherently Left voters. They back the party declared ‘moral’ by the high priests of the current year.”

An astute observation, to be sure.
And in Europe, does any institution more closely resemble the Church of White Genocide than the EU? The moral signals to European voters are clear. In 2004, conservative Catholic Rocco Buttiglione was nominated to serve as Italy’s member of the European Commission. During his hearing before the EU Commission on Civil Liberties, he expressed his opinion that homosexuality is sinful and that families exist for the purpose of motherly procreation and fatherly protection—views that were, until recently, commonplace but now apparently dwell outside the boundaries of respectable opinion. Buttiglione stressed that these were merely his personal opinions as a Roman Catholic and that they would not interfere with his duties as a Commissioner. Nevertheless, EU bureaucrats declared Buttiglione anathema and forced Italy to withdraw his nomination.
Before 2009, the tradition of the European Parliament was to allow the oldest member to preside over the chamber during the election of a President. However, this was changed solely to prevent pioneering French nationalist Jean-Marie Le Pen from holding this position of honor.
This is but a small sample of the ways in which Brussels has made itself the Vatican of White Genocide. After Hofer’s razor-thin loss in Austria, EU President Jean-Claude Juncker blatantly threatened to isolate and sanction any nationalist or populist European governments that come to power. Nations who do not bend the knee can be stripped of funding or voting rights.
Juncker’s rhetoric shows that the EU has become more authoritarian and more left-wing over time. In 1999, several EU member states reacted to the parliamentary success of the FPÖ by imposing short-lived diplomatic sanctions. This was done because, at the time, such action could not be taken by the European Commission officially absent a “serious and persistent breach” of EU principles. Apparently, Juncker believes that he now has the authority to impose more severe punishments with
the full force of the European Commission, who has the ultimate responsibility for determining whether such a breach exists.
In light of our limited resources, our ideology should be entirely situational: a question of whether a course of action is actually good for us or not. A more-powerful EU would not only be bad for our interests in the short-term, but it would remain a permanent structure controlled by hostile elites that would stunt and retard our long-term interests. #Brexit gives us the opportunity to demoralize and weaken an enemy.
We should take it.
3. Exiting the EU Would Inspire and Energize the Identitarian Right
Human beings are drawn to action by appeals to their animal spirits.
In politics, the most efficient way to do this is not to create a bogus external enemy but to find a legitimate existing foe and direct the collective anger of the body politic thereupon until it is destroyed.
In the United States, no event focused White dispossession and resentment more than the reign of President Barrack Hussein Obama. Obama came to symbolize the post-American nation, a once-glorious empire that had been usurped by a globalist, deracinated political and economic elite. Yet the astute observer can see that the American Alternative Right owes much of its energy to Obama and his thinly veiled hatred for our European blood and culture. How many cisgendered Twitter shitlords and TRS Radio hosts got “red pilled” during the Obama-sanctioned bBack riots over Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Trayvon Martin?
One may argue that Obama’s example indicates why we need the EU to remain, so that it can continue to symbolize the enemy. But this would be to pretend that the Donald Trump phenomenon never happened. Disgust with Obama has rightly fueled popular support for the Trump campaign. Today, the American Alt Right is invigorated and enjoying a level of success that it has never seen before. White Americans are mad as hell, and after years of sulking in the dark while their country is being ruled by an incompetent foreigner, they sense a chance to win a government that will work for their interests. So goes Europe: If White resentment can embarrass, discredit or even destroy the
hated European Union, the political momentum would shift to the Right, and the Chief Priests of slave morality would see their highest pulpit smashed into splinters.
Brussels today, Parliament and Reichstag tomorrow.
