Brussels Journal Advocates Tribal Nationalism, White Separatism
In an extremely verbose article that begins with a bizarre science fictional premise that “white Europeans” suffer from a disease only they can catch, Brussels Journal openly advocates tribal nationalism and white separatism.
The mask is completely gone now. This article is indistinguishable from the rubbish you’ll find at sites like the neo-Nazi Stormfront — except that the author, “Takuan Seiyo,” tries mightily to sound like he’s actually denouncing white supremacism, while simultaneously embracing all of its ideological bases. He attempts to short circuit criticism with twisted rationalizations like this:
The tribe I imagine is a sort of ethno-conservative and culturally reactionary white ummah stretching from New Zealand to Alaska, the way the Muslim ummah spans from the remotest islands of Indonesia through Bosnia to British Columbia, but without the negative baggage. In each nation, people who have not yet morphed into Body Snatchers already know how to define themselves as a local ethny, but a universal component is needed as well.
The British National Party’s constitution defines BNP’s constituency as “indigenous Anglo-Saxon, Celtic and Norse folk communities of Britain and those we regard as closely related and ethnically assimilated or assimilable aboriginal members of the European race also resident in Britain.”
Good definition, but one day it will be nice to see a phrase added that asserts solidarity with a list of similar parties in 40 other countries. For now, the vehement Fascism(3) of Body Snatcher society is such that by merely mentioning the BNP I am subjecting this website to criticism and am placing myself on a variety of black lists and white lists maintained in some windowless cubicles by Pod apparatchiks no less fanatical than were the Stasi functionaries rifling through East German population’s letters and underpants [sic] in the basement of the Stasi Headquarters in the Berlin suburb of Lichtenfeld.
It’s sickening—and almost beyond belief that Brussels Journal, who are closely affiliated with the Vlaams Belang, would publish something so openly racist at a time when they’re under the microscope more than ever before, and their party has been rejected from participation in the anti-jihad conference now underway in Jerusalem.
In addition to being linked at many blogs, Brussels Journal is currently listed as a member of the Wall Street Journal’s OpinionJournal Federation.
Are these the kinds of sentiments the Wall Street Journal wants to support—praise for the fascist British National Party and white separatism? And if you’re linking to them, is this the kind of “conservatism” you want to support?
