Paleoconservatism isn’t solely about race (although that is a significant element), it is about heritage, culture, and economics. Paleoconservatives are the only true conservatives in North America while the rest of mainstream conservatives are simply frauds. Our ideology is grounded upon the wisdom of Edmund Burke who believed that progress needn’t compromise the traditional values of our heritage. Burke astutely observed that society must change gradually, and that evolution (not revolution) was the answer. Thanks to our Jewish dominated culture today, rebellion trumps evolution and Burke would rightly be horrified by the manner in which our Jewish elites (and their Saxon flunkies) force change by thrusting upon the masses a toxic brew of extreme secularism, multiculturalism/mass immigration, feminism, and gay marriage. Liberal academics emphasize deconstructing (read:de-legitimizing) the “dominant ideologies” of culture which supposedly lead to oppression of certain groups; whereas we Paleoconservatives believe that these “dominant ideologies” are actually the collective wisdom of our fathers handed down to us. This wisdom helps us establish a feeling of continuity and may counteract the atomization of consumerism.
Paleoconservatives versus liberals on race and multiculturalism
It’s no secret that Paleo-cons are anti-PC and anti-multiculturalism whereas liberals claim to champion egalitarianism. In reality, it’s the other way around. Liberals champion an elitist agenda that masquerades as egalitarianism whereas Paleo-cons appear to be xenophobic but in reality are genuinely more egalitarian. How does this work? Liberals believe that PC and MC are required to safeguard the interests of minorities from the instinct that Canada is an Anglo Saxon nation. While most North Americans are fed up with MC style tolerance, James Crawford of the University of Saskatchewan opines that MC isn’t tolerant enough:
“Multiculturalism (MC) views Canadians as having British values, customs, etc. while still allowing for immigrants to celebrate their past cultures in a formalized way. These celebrations take place on special occasions and showcase historic traits such as food, clothing, music, material objects and language (Legare, 1995). However, this display is very much like the cultures found in museums or on a bookcase. They are taken out on special occasions but afterwards they are put back and everyone returns to normal or British customs.”
According to Trevor Harrison, the (now defunct) reform party of Canada “depict Canada as not only historically an Anglo-Saxon country but also part of a wider Anglo-Saxon culture that is in need of recognizing and re-establishing its heritage.”
Some elements of the former reform party were a bit extreme for my liking, but I think they had the right idea: Canada is an Anglo-Saxon nation and denying this heritage would lead to an identity crisis. Ed West rightly states (paraphrasing David Fischer) that “the cultural influence of the initial founders of a society can vastly outweigh their genetic input.” The US and Canada are both shaped by the same Saxon and protestant values that have made both these nations the greatest in the world. Our work ethic, morally universal worldview, individualist, and virtue emphasis culture share the same British roots. What do I mean by virtue emphasis culture? Edmund Burke believed that elites should be cultured and lead by moral example and this is why North American elites have always been held up to a higher standard. Jefferson also believed this and would be horrified to behold how Capitalism (intended to be egalitarian) has given way to corporatism and a new aristocracy.
Nevertheless the idea of the moral elite is a deeply ingrained WASP value. Henry Ford Sr paid his employees an astonishingly high wage of $5 per day (well above industry standards at the time) and expressed the dignity and joy inherent in good honest work. He even blew the whistle on Jewish tribalism and dual loyalties (The international Jew). Ford, a great Capitalist and a great American, expressed the highest values of the Anglo-Saxon/Protestant tradition (though he was technically Irish). Even today, we expect our industrialists to be philanthropists and while we take these values for granted, they are not common to non white cultures. Mukesh Ambani’s obscenely opulent palatial residence, built amidst the squalor and filth of Mumbai, is estimated to be worth $2 billion dollars. A great Capitalist and a great Indian, Ambani expresses the highest values of South Asia’s Hinduized civilization.
But what does all of this have to do with minority interests in North America?
I believe that there is a smouldering resentment buried within whites who are frustrated at being unable to take pride in their White/European heritage. Liberals and Jewry are content so long as Anglo, French and German cultures are treated “like the cultures found in museums or on a bookcase.” But as soon as these ethnic nationalisms are linked to Canada and America’s national heritages, the liberal PC hammer descends with a vengeance. However it is my view that the stifling effect of MC inflames white xenophobia as whites no doubt associate minorities with the suppression of their ethnic pride. Furthermore, how can whites not be resentful when the third world steadily pours into their backyard and demands special treatment and protection? Reducing immigration and scrapping away MC/PC programs would have numerous benefits for whites and especially non whites. Lets examine some of these benefits:
- Less pressure on jobs: Whites might not realize this, but one immigrant’s greatest foe is another immigrant competing for the same job. I speak from personal experience as I have lost employment opportunities to other immigrants.
- Availability of additional funds: Shutting down MC programs might free up funds available for other projects and priorities that would benefit all Canadians.
- An overall decrease in xenophobia: This outcome might seem puzzling to some but as white ethnic pride goes up, xenophobia decreases as whites no longer feel threatened by expressing ethnic pride. There might be an initial spike of xenophobia which would eventually subside.
Classical conservatives have always been opposed to imperialism as they were very anti white man’s burden. Even today, Paleoconservatives believe that every race has the right to express ethnic pride and that the west has no right to impose its way of life on other peoples. We certainly encourage global trade, but we do so under the condition of restricting immigration so that corporations lose the privilege of plummeting wages. We advocate descaling Canada’s and America’s global military involvement. We also believe that supporting Israel is a mistake and does not serve the interests of the US and Canada. The Israelis are free to wage perpetual war on their own dime.
Immigrants, particularly South/East Asians and Arabs, tend to subscribe to some pretty conservative values that are right in line with Paleoconservatism. The Muslims in my circle (in Saskatoon) are adamant about enrolling their children in Islamic and Catholic schools to avoid “pro gay” propaganda. The only reason immigrants vote liberal is due to their mistaken belief that immigration is in their best interests. There is also this false notion floating around that only liberals can protect immigrants from the racist monsters lurking beneath their beds. If immigrant minorities can be persuaded to abandon these false beliefs it might culminate in a massive setback for the liberal agenda.
All things considered, it isn’t baffling or illogical for an immigrant Indian Muslim like myself to subscribe to Paleoconservatism. My interests are aligned to the interests of the white majority and subverting Western society will not bode well for anybody, whites and non whites alike.
