In the Land of the Stranger

And when they agreed not among themselves, they departed, after that Paul had spoken one word, Well spake the Holy Ghost by Esaias the prophet unto our fathers, Saying, Go unto this people, and say, Hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and not perceive: For the heart of this people is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed; lest they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.  – Acts 28: 25-27


It was not the Greeks en masse who mocked Paul and called him a babbler. Many of the Greeks outside of Athens and even some Athenians (Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them) also “clave unto St. Paul” and believed. But on the whole the Athenians could not accept St. Paul’s belief in Christ’s resurrection from the dead. And in the Acts of the Apostles is written the whole history of the European people, their rise and their fall.

When St. Paul went to Athens, his mortal enemies, the Jews, followed him there. Their hatred of him stemmed from his uncompromising, unremitting preaching of Christ crucified, Christ risen:

And he reasoned in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks. And when Silas and Timotheus were come from Macedonia, Paul was pressed in the spirit, and testified to the Jews that Jesus was Christ. And when they opposed themselves, and blasphemed, he shook his raiment, and said unto them, Your blood be upon your own heads; I am clean: from henceforth I will go unto the Gentiles. – Acts 18: 4-6

The Athenians who rejected St. Paul’s faith in Christ did not hate him as the Jews hated him. They, after all, were philosophers – they neither loved nor hated, they simply liked to sit around and indulge their intellectual curiosity. “For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.” Paul got nowhere with those philosophical speculators.

As we look at our people’s history we see those two forces, the Jews who hate the Savior, and the philosophical speculators who love debate, continually at work undermining the European people’s faith in Christ. When the Europeans kept those two forces in check (for you can never completely eliminate them), they were a people who bore witness to the light of the world. Now that the Jews, who hate the light, and the philosophical speculators hold sway, there is no light in Europe, and the European people have become Undines — they have lost their souls.

The philosophical speculators in the church, the theologians who wanted to make Christianity into a respectable philosophy they needn’t be ashamed of, spawned the philosophical speculators in society, the Voltaires and the Rousseaus. When that spirit of philosophical speculation takes hold, when those who believe in the resurrection of the dead are seen as babblers and purveyors of fairy tales, the people doubt Christ and start to become like unto the Jews who hate Him. This is the dramatic transformation that took place in Europe. When the scoffers, the Voltaires, the Shaws, and the Rousseaus, made Christianity a thing of ridicule, the formerly Christian people became like unto the Jews. They began to hate Christ and his followers. If Christ be not risen then the Christian religion is a sin against nature. Flying the flag of the natural savage, the Judaized European, the liberal, attacks the European people with a religious zeal that is grounded in the hatred of the living God, who is Christ the Lord. The white race will always be the object of the Judaized liberals’ hatred because the white race formed a covenant with the Suffering Servant. They can announce to the world that they have broken that covenant, they can claim that Christianity and liberalism are one, but that will avail them nothing. Nothing can change the fact that the white race saw beauty on the cross and made the Christ story their story. They simply can’t be trusted, so they must be destroyed.

The neo-pagans who have made the exterior Jew the main problem do not understand the European people’s journey from darkness to light and then back to darkness. Satan was the great scoffer, he debunked the fairy tale of God’s filial connection to Adam and Eve. He told Adam and Eve that the stupid story of the forbidden fruit was just that – a stupid story: “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods…” But who was the liar, Satan or the Lord God? The devil will always tell us honest trifles to betray us in deepest consequence. Death came into the world when Adam and Eve took the devil’s word over God’s word. And we have reenacted that original sin by allowing the Athenians, the Voltaires, and the Rousseaus (“Mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau, Mock on!”) to place St. Paul’s vision of the risen Lord in the unscientific world of unreality, while placing the Rousseauian vision of a natural world cleansed of unnatural Christian Europeans at the center of Europe. The “naturalism” of the philosophical speculators always metamorphoses into the hatred of the light. The Christian believes that Christ restored us to our true natures; we were not born to die. But if Christ be not risen, as the philosophical speculators tell us, then He is the great destroyer, He is the one great obstacle to the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. We can’t dance around the throne of the noble black savage if Christ, not nature, is the one true God. That is the real war we are fighting, or should I say that is the war the Europeans should be fighting? We should take up the discarded sword of the European people, which is the cross of Christ, and assert the truth of His story over the mocking ridicule of the philosophers and the zealous hatred of the liberals. And let us not be deceived by the internecine warfare between various camps of liberals, whether they are neo-pagans who mock “gentle Jesus,” Christian fusionists who worship Israel, Roman Catholics who worship the natural savage, or mad-dog liberals who hate with the passion of Shylock, they are all of one accord on that which is essential: They hate the antique Europeans who placed Christ at the center of their culture. How can we be a people again if we deny our parentage? We, the European people, were born of Him. Everything else the European people did prior to their acceptance of Christ was only significant to the extent it helped prepare them to receive their King.

And they were prepared, because they, unlike the philosophers and the Jews, were able to love a God of mercy who did not come in the form of an earthly king but in the form of a suffering servant. When the judgment of nations takes place, it is the Europeans’ espousal of the God who asked for mercy rather than sacrifice that will distinguish them from all the other nations. Why do the modern Undines, the soulless Europeans, stand with the heathen gods who require sacrifice and have no place for mercy?

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.Psalms 2: 1-3

They stand with them, because they believe the lies of the devil who tells us that the natural world, the world we can see and touch, is the whole world. We need only turn to the gods of the natural world in order to find the peace and fulfillment that we could never find with the Christ of old Europe. That is the liberals’ party line.

Christ the Lord is no longer a living reality to the people of Europe. He is no longer the God above nature who redeems us from sin and death, He is the great facilitator of the nature gods. He helps us to fight racism, which is white pietas, and enjoins us to think of Him as the God of liberalism. But is our Lord the lap dog of the liberals? No, He is not. Nor should we be the lap dogs of the liberals just because we are afraid of being called racist, sexist, or Islamophobic. So long as we are only concerned with showing the liberals that faith in Christ is compatible with liberalism, we are sounding brass and tinkling cymbals. We are nothing at all.

To live in exile estranged from your people and your homeland is a terrible thing. But it is far more terrible to make peace with the invaders who have killed your people and despoiled your homeland. And that is precisely what the modern anti-Europeans such as Pope Francis and Angela Merkel have done. They have renounced their people and made peace with the invaders. Better to live in exile within the confines of the new Babylon, than to make peace with those who have made the hatred of the white, Christ-bearing race their sole religion.

In grade school we used to sing a song that was inspired by a piece of poetry by Davey Crockett. One line in that poem has stayed with me my entire life: “In the land of the stranger, I rise or I fall.” The Europeans who conquered the Roman empire did so in the name of their gods who fought beside them in battle and presided over their racial hearth fire. When they heard the Christ story, they saw, with their hearts, the same God that St. Paul encountered on the road to Damascus. His vision became their vision. And in the land of the stranger, which consisted of all the colored races, they rose, because they had no truck with the philosophical speculators. But what of their heirs? What happened to the European people? Satan conquered the European people through philosophical speculation and made their faith a subject of ridicule. Now the European people are naked to their enemies – the colored heathens and the Judaized liberals.

I do not say it will happen, because no man can know such things, but I do say that the world of the antique Europeans, which they built in the midst of heathendom and in spite of the forces of liberalism arrayed against them, was and is the real world. It is His world. And it will only return if we reject the world of the stranger, the world of apostate church men, colored heathen, and Judaized liberals. That world is not the world for a European.

Kent enjoins Lear to “see better” so that he will know who his real daughter is, the daughter who loves him. We must see with our European hearts so that we can know the living God, the God who loves us. He does not reside in the minds of the philosophical speculators nor in the unhallowed churches of diversity and hatred; He resides with the people with hearts of flesh. White pietas will sustain us in the day of battle, because it is white pietas that allows us to see and know the savior. We shall rise if we cleave unto the vision of St. Paul and the antique Europeans. We shall remain a fallen people, under the yoke of the stranger, so long as we reject the antique Europeans’ vision and cleave unto the gods of liberalism. +
