The conservative People’s Party wins big in Spanish elections.
The Socialist party has been toppled as a result of Spain’s severe debt problem. The policies of the Socialist party has given Spain one of the worst economies in Europe.
In elections for the 350 member Spanish Congress, the People’s Party won 44% and the Socialist Party 28%. The People’s Party will gain 32 seats and the Socialist party will lose 59. The new president will be Mariano Rajoy of the People’s Party.
This dramatically changes the Spanish government.
The conservative Catalonia Nationalist party received about 5% and 16 seats. Another 12 seats will go to Basque nationalists split between a centrist party and a left-wing party. The rest of the seats went to centrist and left-wing parties.
The “Immortals” hold marches in Germany to call for an end to immigration and for ethnic Germans to have more children. Currently the birthrate among Germans is a dismal 1.3 children per family. The group wears masks during marches because German has no free speech protections and activists are often harassed. The group uses social media to draw supporters to an area for a demonstration before police can act to break it up. The march in the video occurred in downtown Bautzen in the state of Saxony. The “mainstream media” reported that only 150 people participated even though video footage shows well over one thousand.
In Russia, the Federal government banned the mainstream “Movement to Stop Illegal Immigration.” The group had held huge marches with many thousands of supporters. The Russian government said it was preventing “ethnic tension.” Leaders of the banned group said that it’s members would be forced to be even more radical to get their voices heard.
Just days ago, over 5,000 Russians nationalists marched in Moscow for Russian Unity Day.
Le choc de l’Histoire. Religion, mémoire, identité.
Versailles: Via Romana, September 2011.
“The future belongs to those with the longest memory.” –Nietzsche
Conservative thinking, Karl Mannheim notes, is essentially historical thinking—in that it orients to the concrete, to ‘what is’ and ‘what has been’, instead of to ‘what ought to be’ or ‘what can be’. ‘Properly understood’, historical thinking (as créatrice de sens) reveals the ‘Providential’ design evident in the course and test of time.
Some anti-liberals are wont thus to situate their ‘conservative’ project within the frame of Europe’s historical destiny and the higher design informing it.
The most renowned of such historical thinkers (representing what Carolina Armenteros calls the ‘the French idea of history’) was the father of European anti-liberalism, Joseph de Maistre—though he is not our subject. Rather, it is the foremost contemporary avatar of anti-liberal historical thought: Dominique Venner.
The 75-year-old, French-speaking European of Celt and German descent, father of five, Venner is a historical scholar, a writer of popular histories and of various works on firearms and hunting, as well as the editor of two successful, artfully illustrated historical journals.
But whatever his genre, Venner bears the knightly (or legionnaire) standard of Europe’s multi-millennial heritage—the heritage, he claims, that took form with the blind poet, who is the father of us all—the heritage whose Homeric spirit knows to honor the brave, bare-foot soldiers of the Confederacy and the social banditry of Jesse James—and, most insistently, the heritage that expects a future commensurate with Europe’s incomparable past.
Venner is not your average academic historians; indeed, he’s not an academic at all. His life has been lived out on the last of France’s imperial battlefields; in Parisian street politics, in the outlawed OAS, in prison, and in laying the conceptual foundations of the European New Right; and finally, since his early thirties, in the various libraries, archives, and communal memories he’s searched to produce the 50 books he’s written on the key historical upheavals of the last century or so.
Unsurprisingly, his historical sense is ‘over-determined’—not solely by an intelligence steeped in the life of the mind, but also by disciplines acquired in those schools of initiands known only to the political soldier.
His latest book—Le Choc de l’Histoire—is not a work of history per se, but a series of meditations, in the form of a book-long interview (conducted by the historian Pauline Lecomte) on the historical situation presently facing Europeans. These meditations approach their subject in parallel but opposite ways: 1) one approach surveys the contours of Europe’s longue durée—those centuries of growth that made the great oak so venerable—and, in the spirit of the Annales School, reveals her ‘secret permanences’, and, 2) a very different but complementary approach that silhouettes the heroic individuals and individual events (Achilles and the Iliad foremost) exemplifying the Homeric spirit of European man—disclosing his possibilities, and offering him thus an alternative to his programmed extinction.
Venner’s thesis is that: Europeans, after having been militarily, politically, and morally crushed by events largely of their own making, have been lost in sleep (‘in dormition’) for the last half-century and are now—however slowly—beginning to experience a ‘shock of history’ that promises to wake them, as they are forced to defend an identity of which they had previously been almost unconscious.
Like the effect of cascading catastrophes (the accelerating decomposition of America’s world empire, Europe’s Islamic colonization, the chaos-creating nihilism of global capitalism, etc.), the shock of history today is becoming more violent and destructive, making it harder for Europeans to stay lulled in the deep, oblivious sleep that follows a grievous wound to the soul itself—the deep curative sleep prescribed by their horrendous civil wars (1914-1918 and 1939-1945), by the ensuing impositions of the Soviet/American occupation and of the occupation’s collaborationist regimes, and, finally, today, by a demographic tsunami promising to sweep away their kind.
The Second European Civil War of 1939-1945, however it is interpreted, resulted in a cataclysmic defeat not just for Hitler’s Germany, but for Europe, much of which, quite literally, was reduced to mounds of smoldering rumble. Then, at Yalta, adding insult to injury, the two extra-European super-powers partitioned the Continent, deprived her states of sovereignty, and proceeded to Americanize or Sovietize the ‘systems’ organizing and managing the new postwar European order.
As Europe’s lands and institutions were assumed by alien interests, her ancient roots severed, and her destiny forgotten, Europeans fell into dormition, losing consciousness of who they were as a people and a civilization—believing, as they were encouraged, that they were simply one people, equal among the world’s many peoples.
Worse, for their unpardonable sins—for what Europeans did to Jews in the war, to Blacks in the slave trade, to non-White peoples in general over the course of the last 500 years—for all the terrible sins Europeans have committed, they are henceforth denied the ‘right’ to be a ‘people’. In the Messianic spirit of Communism and Americanism, the Orwellian occupiers and collaborators have since refused them a common origin (roots), a shared history, a tradition, a destiny. This reduces them to a faceless economic-administrative collectivity, which is expected, in the end, to negate the organic basis of its own existence.
The postwar assault on European identity entailed, however, more than a zombifying campaign of guilt-inducement—though this campaign was massive in scale. Europe after Jahre Null was re-organized according to extra-European models and then overwhelmed with imported forms of mass consumerism and entertainment. At the same time and with perhaps greater severity, she was subject to an unprecedented ‘brain-washing’ (in schools, media, the so-called arts, public institutions, and private corporations)—as all Europe’s family of nations, not just the defeated Germans, were collectively made to bear a crushing guilt—under the pretext of the Shoah or the legacy of colonialism/imperialism/slavery—for sins requiring the most extreme penance. Thus tainted, her memory and identity are now publicly stigmatized,
Venner’s Europe is not, of course, the Soviet/New Class-inspired EU, just as she is not the geographical entity labeled ‘Europe’. Rather than a market, a political/administrative structure, a geographic category—rather even than a race (though in a certain sense it is all about race in the end)—Europe for him is a multi-millennial community of closely-related national families made up of Germans, Celts, Slavs, and others, having the same ancient (Indo-European, Borean, Cro-Magnon) roots of blood and spirit: that is, having the same Thirty-thousand Years of European History and Identity.
This makes his Europe a community with a common civilizational heritage that stretches back to the depths of prehistoric time. Historically, the tradition and identity of this heritage has informed Europe’s representations and values in ways distinguishing/identifying her and her peoples from other civilizations and peoples.
Tradition, though, is not for Venner the metaphysical abstraction of the perennialists or the historical repository of the Burkeans: it is not something outside history nor is it something forged once and for all in the night of time.
Tradition for him is precisely that which does not pass. It is the perpetual spirit that makes Europeans who they are and lends meaning to their existence, as they change and grow yet remain always the same. It is the source thus of the ‘secret permanences’ upon which their history is worked out.
Tradition may originate in Prehistory, but Venner claims it is preeminently contemporary—just as every origin represents a novel outburst of being. It serves thus as a people’s inner compass. It directs them to what and whom they are. It renders what was formed and inspired in the past into a continually informed present. It is always new and youthful, something very much before rather than behind them. It embodies the longest memory, integral to their identity, and it anticipates a future true to its origin. Life lived in reference to tradition, Venner insists, is life lived in accordance with the ideal it embodies—the ideal of ‘who we are’.
In one sense, Venner’s Europe is the opposite of the America that has distorted Europe’s fate for the last half-century. But he is no knee-jerk anti-American (though the French, in my view, have good cause to be anti-US). He’s also written several books on the US War of Secession, in which much of America’s Cavalier heritage is admired. Knowing something of the opposed tendencies shaping American ‘national’ life, he’s well aware of the moral abyss separating, say, Jesse James from Jay Gould—and what makes one an exemplar of the European spirit and the other its opposite.
Modeled on the Old Testament, not the Old World, Venner claims America’s New World (both as a prolongation and rejection of Europe) was born of New England Calvinism and secularized in John O’Sullivan’s ‘Manifest Destiny’.
Emboldened by the vast, virgin land of their wilderness enterprise and the absence of traditional authority, America’s Seventeenth-century Anglo-Puritan settlers set out, in the spirit of their radical-democratic Low Church crusade, to disown the colony’s Anglo-European parents—which meant disowning the idea (old as Herodotus) that Europe is ‘the home of liberty and true government’.
Believing herself God’s favorite, this New Zion aspired—as a Promised Land of liberty, equality, fraternity—to jettison Europe’s aesthetic and aristocratic standards for the sake of its religiously-inspired materialism. Hence, the bustling, wealth-accumulating, tradition-opposing character of the American project, which offends every former conception of the Cosmos.
New England, to be sure, is not the whole of America, for the South, among another sections, has a quite different narrative, but it was the Yankee version of the ‘American epic’ that became dominant, and it is thus the Yankee version that everywhere wars on Americans of European descent.
Citing Huntington’s Who Are We?, Venner says US elites (‘cosmocrats’, he calls them) pursue a transnational/universalist vision (privileging global markets and human rights) that opposes every ‘nativist’ sense of nation or culture—a transnational/universalist vision the cosmocrats hope to impose on the whole world. For like Russian Bolsheviks and ‘the Bolsheviks of the Seventeenth century’, these money-worshipping liberal elites hate the Old World and seek a new man, Homo Oeconomicus—unencumbered by roots, nature, or culture—and motivated solely by a quantitative sense of purpose.
As a union whose ‘connections’ are essentially horizontal, contractual, self-serving, and self-centered, America’s cosmocratic system comes, as such, to oppose all resistant forms of historic or organic identity—for the sake of a totalitarian agenda intent on running roughshod over everything that might obstruct the scorch-earth economic logic of its Protestant Ethic and Capitalist Spirit. (In this sense, Europe’s resurgence implies America’s demise).
What will awaken Europeans from their sleep? Venner says it will be the shock of history—the shock re-awakening the tradition that made them (and makes them) who they are. Such shocks have, in fact, long shaped their history. Think of the Greeks in their Persian Wars; of Charles Martel’s outnumbered knights against the Caliphate’s vanguard; or of the Christian forces under Starhemberg and Sobieski before the gates of Vienna. Whenever Europe approaches Höderlin’s ‘midnight of the world’, such shocks, it seems, serve historically to mobilize the redeeming memory and will to power inscribed in her tradition.
More than a half-century after the trauma of 1945—and the ensuing Americanization, financialization, and third-worldization of continental life—Europeans are once again experiencing another great life-changing, history-altering shock promising to shake them from dormition.
The present economic crisis and its attending catastrophes (in discrediting the collaborators managing the EU, as well as de-legitimatizing the continent’s various national political systems), combined with the unrelenting, disconcerting Islamization of European life (integral to US strategic interests) are—together—forcing Europeans to re-evaluate a system that destroys the national economy, eliminates borders, ravages the culture, makes community impossible, and programs their extinction as a people. The illusions of prosperity and progress, along with the system’s fun, sex, and money (justifying the prevailing de-Europeanization) are becoming increasingly difficult to entertain. Glimmers of a changing consciousness have, indeed, already been glimpsed on the horizon.
The various nationalist-populist parties stirring everywhere in Europe—parties which are preparing the counter-hegemony that one day will replace Europe’s present American-centric leadership—represent one conspicuous sign of this awakening. A mounting number of identitarian, Christian, secular, and political forces resisting Islam’s, America’s, and the EU’s totalitarian impositions at the local level are another sign.
Europeans, as a consequence, are increasingly posing the question: ‘Who are we?’, as they become more and more conscious—especially in the face of the dietary, vestimentary, familial, sexual, religious, and other differences separating them from Muslims—of what is distinct to their civilization and their people, and why such distinctions are worth defending. Historical revivals, Venner notes, are slow in the making, but once awakened there is usually no going back. This is the point, Venner believes, that Europe is approaching today.
History is the realm of the unexpected. Venner does not subscribe to notions of historical determinism or necessity. In contrast to Marxists and economic determinists, anti-Semites and Spenglerians, he believes there are no monocausal explanations of history, and unlike liberals such as Fukuyama, he believes there’s no escape from (no ‘end’ to) history.
In history, the future is always unknown. Who would have thought in 1980 that Soviet Russia, which seemed to be overtaking the United States in the ‘70s, would collapse within a decade? Historical fatalities are the fatalities of men’s minds, not those of history.
History, moreover, is the confluence of the given, the circumstantial, and the willful. This makes it always open and hence potentially always a realm of the unexpected. And the unexpected (that instance when great possibilities are momentarily posed) is mastered, Venner councils, only in terms of who we are, which means in terms of the tradition and identity defining our project and informing our encounter with the world.
Hence, the significance now of husbanding our roots, our memory, our tradition, for from them will come our will to power and any possibility of transcendence. It’s not for nothing, Dominique Venner concludes, that we are the sons and daughters of Homer, Ulysses, and Penelope.

Be ready, our time is coming, the world is spinning faster and faster, each day another card falls on the worlds house of cards, another domino in the long chain of events moving the world closer and closer to what WE all know is coming. The greatest generation knew it in 1930’s, the warriors of the south in the 1860’s knew it, the revolutionary patriots understood it in 1770’s. Our Time is coming, a day of change, not some slogan for community organizing, but for Revolution! For our people to rise up and take our place among the great generations who have come before us, to stand together united as one people, our destiny, our heritage, our high culture, our technology, all have been building for the last 10,000 years for the new age approaches, there will be NO fence sitting for anyone!
You will stand as men,
or die like cowards!
On your knees bitch. England is ours now.
The People are aware of what has been done to them, many acknowledge and silently prepare, a band of brothers are we, one goal, to take back our nations from the occult of death, the egalitarian worshiper, they have lost the minds of the people, and everything they have done has helped to push our beliefs into reality, time and again we are proven right, time and again, THEY have failed, in every way possible they have failed. Now our nation states face internal strife and collapse, soon our time will come.
One Voice, One People, One Nation.
These are OUR cities, OUR nations, OUR people, say it clear to them:
YOU CANNOT HAVE THEM!
WE WILL FIGHT YOU TO OUR
Europe is struggling to breath, the whole of our civilization stands at the gates of the hell, from these cleansing infernos, a warrior people will be born, the weak will fall to the way side and the strong will prevail!
The Enemy gathering its forces.
We have a right to exist as a FREE and unique people, to decide our own destiny, to BE Truly Free from tyranny of any kind!
Our ancestors fought for that right, they died on the battlefields across this world, bit by bit we have pieced it together, sacrifice to unwavering courage we have stood the natures fury, every obstacle, everything making our people stronger, making us smarter, each step our weakness have been bled from us.
Our enemies have only one weapon left against us, our final and only weakness, our mercy. The Last weakness is our mercy for the enemy, one thought from the immortal bloodline; ask none, give none.
Europe is taking blows to the body, their people unable to defend their communities from the hordes will stand and fight or die like dogs, today London has been sacked and burned, tomorrow Detroit, and San Diego. The last stronghold of the greatest people to walk the Earth, is America. It is here we will make our stand, take this nation, and its government, and the whole of the Earth will follow. This is our destiny, the final test of strength, we fail here there is no second chance, humanity will die.
One Voice, One People, One Nation.
We built a great civilization focused on the external, western expansion, lunar colonization, city building, war fighting, infrastructure creating, controlling our environment, things that make civilizations great, we had a civilization based on an idea. An idea we have lost. Instead of concentrating on the external and pushing out past the atmosphere, we turned our attention to the internal, we focused on the poor, welfare, food stamps, section 8 housing, we turned to the worlds poor, immigration, famine, war and starvation around the world. We turned away from what made us stronger, and looked inward at what would make us weaker, we allowed the weaker elements to exist, and in most cases exacerbated a growing population of hungry useless human beings, yes I said useless.
Now we find our brothers have lost their nerve, lost what made us great, lost the drive to make us great once again. Take heart all is not lost. Nature has a way with correcting gross natural imbalances, she is a cruel bitch whose ability to inflict suffering has no limit. She will break this civilization, she has broken its knees and allowed the islamic invaders to swarm over its body, she has weakened our immune system and allowed parasites from latin/asia infect the body, and the cancer of black americans has spread to every organ starving the body nation of oxygen, blood and much needed nutrients.
I will say she is a cruel ingenious bitch, for in all her calculating she has created in us the ability to hate. Hatred of all things that hurt our families. A hatred that seems to know no boundaries, an unexplainable inner rot that consumes our humanity, an energy focused on the inner rage at the unnaturalness of all things. Our society has caged this hatred behind civility and a massive police force, but as all things, their grasp on our throats is weakening, their attention has been taken off our impending death, and for just a moment, very soon now they will be focused on their pets whom have begun to feel the pain of their actions.
This is a great time we live in my kinsmen. We live in the end of an age. The last gasp of liberal christian west, a civilization whose time has passed. What will come next you say?
In the next moments our would be killers will no longer have their attention on killing us, this moment will be our time. The wild beasts trapped within each of us, will be freed if only for a few seconds, to bring this nation a death blow, our teeth sharpened over the decades of our dispossession, our claws long and hard from abuse at the hands of our darker skinned friends. In that moment we will sink our teeth into their necks, rip their flesh with our claws, and tear them to shreds. Their pets will scatter to the winds in fear of what is to come.
Do not fear the yellow man he is weak, he exists because we have allowed him to. The red dragon is a silk worm in the face of the titans of europa. The brown man is a tick whose blood sucking will cease once we have awakened from our self induced slumber, and they too shall fall to the wayside. The lowly black man nothing but dust in our eyes, easily wiped clean, without a second thought. Just be ready to make them fear us, as none have been feared.
Do not be afraid of what is to come, we are not alone in this fight, our brothers in arms have been busy, very busy, decades of preparation, centuries of anger, nature has deemed this world ours, the final test is nearly upon us. Failure is not an available option. Victory is assured, we must remember not to back down, do not negotiate, no compromise, we will push them into extinction, move the mountains, pierce the earths crust, burn the forests, if its war they want, let’s not disappoint them, a war of racial survival, a war of annihilation, the last war humanity will ever fight.
The radical left-wing BBC has been working on a story with Searchlight, the British version of the SPLC, to claim that the Norwegian spree killer is “connected” to the English Defense League. Their story is actually completely baseless.
Police in Norway are unable to establish a link between Anders Behring Breivik and the English football hooligan group infiltrated by British intelligence.
Janne Kristiansen, director of the Norwegian Police Security Service, told the BBC no proof has yet been found to link the English Defense League to Breivik.
“I can tell you, at this moment in time, we don’t have evidence or we don’t have indications that he has been part of a broader movement or that he has been in connection with other cells or that there are other cells,” she said.
In the United States, the corporate media has worked overtime to connect the event to the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995. That terror event was attributed to patsy and government agent Timothy McVeigh.
CNN dredged up highly skewed statistics from the Southern Poverty Law Center to make its point that the so-called “far right” is a looming threat. “Right wing anti-government groups grew by 60% in 2010 over the previous year,” CNN claims, citing the stats.
The SPLC considers Second Amendment advocates and activists opposed to open borders and illegal immigration as “extremist right-wingers.”
The SPLC has played a far more intimate role in domestic terrorism than the people it attempts to demonize for exercising their right to protest and petition the government.
In 2003, the FBI revealed that the group had an informant – and possibly a provocateur – inside the the white supremacist compound at Elohim City along with documented intelligence operative Andreas Carl Strassmeier.
Elohim City was central to the Oklahoma City bomb plot, according to the government.
“If I told you what we were doing there, I would have to kill you,” Morris Dees, co-founder and chief trial counsel for the SPLC, said in response to media questions about the FBI revelation.
