The Native American Ploy

Whites as Amerindians.

A comment often made – frequently observed for example on Yahoo comments threads – by leftists in response to complaints about White American dispossession is to raise the issue of Amerindians – “You guys invaded the lands of the Native Americans and pushed them out and now you are being invaded and pushed out, ha ha, too bad” is a typical example of this genre of comment.

We should be gratified when opponents make such arguments – for not only do they reveal their anti-White aggression, but, more importantly, they are admitting that the displacement of Whites in North America is akin to the displacement of the Amerindians, and we all know how “well” that worked out for the Amerindians.  Indeed, the response to such comments should be to thank the commentator for supporting the argument that White Americans are indeed being subjected to genocidal race replacement, and to note that Whites are under no obligation to let themselves be displaced and replaced.  Indeed, the Amerindians did resist as the frontier “Indian wars” demonstrate – the problem for the Amerindians is that they lacked the numbers, organization, intelligence, and technics to resist White expansion. Whites, on the other hand, could resist displacement if only they would demonstrate the same fighting spirit as the Amerindians.  Finally, another point in response to anti-White comments about “Native Americans” is to ask whether the commentator opposes the replacement of Whites in their native homelands of Europe, a situation that very well matches the Amerindian scenario.  If the “they were here first in their homeland” argument is so important to aggrieved leftists, then they should be among the strongest supporters of the European Far-Right.

The Wild Bunch

Recommended viewing.

I recently watched Sam Peckinpah’s beautifully violent 1969 Western classic, The Wild Bunch, starring William Holden, Robert Ryan, and everyone’s favorite typically Celto-Germanic Nordic Northern Italian Ernest Borgnine.

From a racial and cultural perspective, there are some interesting features to this film: Mexican mestizo incompetence and savagery, a contrast between those deficits of mestizo character and better qualities exhibited by (relatively) unmixed Amerindians (which readers of Stoddard’s The Rising Tide of Color may remember as one defining characteristic of “Red Man’s Land”)*, White competence and honor, the sexual allure of colored women even to otherwise honorable White men, and a hilariously satisfying Thermopylae-like shootout ending.

Definitely worth watching.

*Granted, the dividing line between mestizo and Amerindian was not always clear for every character (e.g., General Mapache), but, overall, the contrast, on a group level, between Mexican mestizo troops, whores, and villagers and (more unmixed) Amerindian fighters was one (subtle) theme of this film.
