GRIMM: Is Your Mouth A Little Weak?

“We have no free speech in any meaningful sense. Any academic can boast of the fact that he is a Marxist/Leninist or a Communist ideologue. But let one professor claim himself a National Socialist or an adherent to an ideology of nationalism in any meaningful sense, and he will be driven into oblivion.”

      I basically agree with what “anonymous” posted on the blog above regarding the alarm bells going off in the collective brains of white America, but the alarm bells aren’t spurring White Americans to action for the right reasons. Most of the people I’ve run into buying guns talk a good talk, but when it comes to action I’d be willing to bet 90% of them will be good citizens and turn them in when the government orders them to. I hope I’m wrong, but judging the character of most Whites in this country I’m not holding my breath. Also, most of the Whites who are getting bent out of shape over Obama and the current administration aren’t getting worked up over the race issue, but are instead worrying about useless issues like abortion, the bible, socialism, etc. etc. – typical “conservative” peripheral issues. The main problem this country faces from which all problems stem is RACE. Take care of the race problem and all of the others will clear up (well, except for the religious ones, but they are still small time.)

      Just like Dr. Pierce said, Conservatives can never win- they are always on the retreat.

      I couldn’t agree with Blackshirt more! He said it well. The “conservative” issues are at best peripheral, but too many short-sighted “conservatives” can’t see the core while they fret and stew over the fringe — like prayers in school, gay marriage, or something such. And also, to a lot of “conservatives”, race is unmentionable, which shows just how far gone they are.

    3. Parsifal Says:

      Non-issues like flag burning and stem cell research are designed by “conservative” politcal consultants to divert the public’s attention from truly important things like race and who’s really in control of the System. But the fact that forums like this attract so many people who for whatever reason do not worship the Jew Dollar or the Gospel of Anne Frank is an encouraging sign. And if this Empire falls apart, the first people who will perish are all those effete, decadent parisites in the media, politics and Academe.

      ……And all those coke-snorting, White working-man screwing, money-grubbing capitalist swine on Wailing Wall Street will be among the first to go, too.

      “During an arrest, you think since you aren’t guilty, how can they arrest you? Why should you run away? And how can you resist right then? After all, you’ll only make your situation worse; you’ll make it more difficult for them to sort out the mistake. And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! We didn’t love freedom enough. Every man always has handy a dozen glib little reasons why he is right not to sacrifice himself.” -Alexander Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008), The Gulag Archipelago

      From the BBC:
      “Solzhenitsyn served as a Soviet artillery officer in World War II and was decorated for his courage but in 1945 was denounced for criticising Stalin in a letter.

      “He spent the next eight years in the Soviet prison system, or Gulag, before being internally exiled to Kazakhstan, where he was successfully treated for stomach cancer.

      “Publication in 1962 of the novella One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, an account of a day in a Gulag prisoner’s life, made him a celebrity during the post-Stalin political thaw.

      “However, within a decade, the writer awarded the 1970 Nobel Prize for Literature was out of favour again for his work, and was being harassed by the KGB secret police.

      “In 1973, the first of the three volumes of Archipelago, a detailed account of the systematic Soviet abuses from 1918 to 1956 in the vast network of its prison and labour camps, was published in the West.

      “Its publication sparked a furious backlash in the Soviet press, which denounced him as a traitor.

      “Early in 1974, the Soviet authorities stripped him of his citizenship and expelled him from the country.

      “After the fall of the Soviet Union, he returned to Russia in 1994 and died in Moscow 14 years later.”

      From his obituary from the BBC:

      “Solzhenitsyn also rejected liberalism, dismissing the notion of democracy introduced by Gorbachev and Yeltsin as a myth. He was equally scathing of Western liberalism.

      “He returned to Russia in 1994 and told the Russian parliament, the Duma, that post-communist Russians were not living in a democracy.

      “He denounced politicians as being corrupt, and appeared regularly on television to voice his disapproval of the country which had first reviled and then embraced him.

      “In 2000, his book, Two Hundred Years Together, again covered sensitive ground in exploring the position of Jews in Soviet society.

      “He denied some charges of anti-Semitism. Gradually, his own people no longer had quite the desire to listen so carefully to his criticisms.

      “But former President Vladimir Putin courted his approval towards the end of the author’s life, personally visiting his home in 2007 to award him the State Prize of the Russian Federation for his humanitarian work. “
