Salter on Trump

More reasonable analysis.

The candidacy of Donald Trump in the American election campaign also offers some hope. Nothing is certain about how Trump would perform as president. He is, as his critics claim, something of a wild card. The positive signs come from the enthusiasm with which Republicans and many Democrats responded to Trump’s policies of border control, expelling illegal immigrants, rolling back the globalist trade policies that have been de-industrialising the country, and looking closely at Muslim immigration. Whether or not Trump would perform responsibly as president, a big slice of the American electorate has shown that they are alive and kicking. Their spirit has not been permanently crushed by a hostile elite. Their shrugging off of the mainstream media’s condemnation of Trump demonstrates a healthy cynicism towards the intellectual and media classes. They are angry over lost prosperity and the manifest signs that they are losing their country to perverse social policies and non-European immigration.

That prudent and sober analysis can compare with the typical fanboy hysteria of Der Movement. Salter is correct: the major point of the Trump campaign is the reaction to him, not the man himself.

Introducing Anglophone

An exciting new project.

Dr. Frank Salter has started a new website, whose description can be found here.

The asymmetry in attitudes towards Anglo and non-Anglo ethnicity is a fundamental flaw in our political culture. It amounts to ethnic hierarchy, with traditional Australia kept down at subaltern status by political correctness and rank hypocrisy. 

Anglophone’s mission is to correct that inequality and by so doing rehabilitate multiculturalism from being a system of oppression and cultural genocide to one that lives up to its democratic promise. 

The mainstream media, the multicultural media and the indigenous media routinely report and interpret events that affect minority interests. We shall be doing the same for Anglo-Australia. We have taken on the mission of acting as honest and engaged journalists and analysts, reporting and interpreting Australian and international affairs to traditional Australia from the vantage point of their interests and concerns. 

Our main audience will be Anglo Australians but Anglophone should also be interesting to Australians of all backgrounds, especially those on the path to assimilation. A great many people of immigrant background identify with aspects of traditional Australia, the nation their parents and grandparents were attracted to in the first place. They never questioned the identity of the nation to which they migrated. Instead they wanted and still want to join in. Neither did they seek to put down those who welcomed them. They see that as improper and destabilising. Anglophone will facilitate traditional Australia reasserting itself, protecting its vital interests and taking its proper place at the multicultural table, not only for Anglo-Australians but all who depend on the cohesion, social stability and cultural continuity of the broader community.

There is a considerable amount of good material there and it may be updated regularly.

This is certainly great news and a step forward: sober and intelligent analysis on issues of race, culture, and society.
