Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

I have no words

It's a day off here, so I have plenty of chores to do-- laundry, housekeeping, sermon polishing (two this weekend), making sure that there will be food in the house for the next week, when Daughter will be here (yay!) and friends will share Thanksgiving with us. . .

So what have I been doing? Catching up on blog reading, of course.

Rev. Ref+ made note here of a young singing duo who recently moved to the NW corner of the state, and is... creating a stir, with their melodic expression of white supremacy. I read the article, and thought to do some further reading about them, and the "White Nationalist" group with which they are affiliated.

Exerpts from a recent commentary on the group's site:

Most advocates for White interests came from mainstream conservatism. This is a natural progression. Much as the "Free Republic" crowd might protest, racial awareness is a short -- if challenging, given the taboo surrounding it -- step from conservatism. It's come to baffle me that those who rail so loudly against socialism in the economic sphere never stop to think that the demand for racial equality is essentially the same thing.

And, lest anyone "liberal" start feeing smug...

Shocker: not all these folks are bad people. They are often thoughtful, well-educated and sincere. For others, the motivation is not so pure: after years of bombardment by Jewish subversion memes, they seek out anything "White" and heap their condescension upon it: Christianity, intact families, sexual modesty, hunting, Southern accents, and so on... And have you ever noticed that the Whitest of White things -- cool Vermont countrysides, cushy dens and libraries filled with musty books, sharp-looking Saabs and snooty soaps from L'Occitane -- are associated with liberals?

And it goes on from there:

Obviously, liberalism in its present incarnation is more hostile to White interests than conservatism, but given the state of modern-day "conservatism," the difference is increasingly slight. Fighting wars for Israel, open borders, and international capitalism -- favored causes of many of today's "conservatives" -- are just as bad for Whites as the affirmative action, multiculturalism and prime-time pornography favored by liberals. Legal abortion, because it results in fewer Blacks and Mestizos, is probably a net benefit to Whites, who'd end up paying their welfare tab or as victims of their criminal attacks.

No, I am not making this up. (I hesitate to link to this; but I have decided to do so, in order to cite my source. It won't happen again).

I also discovered by accident that the young duo in the Missoula Independent article referenced above share a name with a blues/rock band in the UK: Prussian Blue. It seems that the latter folks have been around for a while, long enough to have a registered trademark on their name. It occurred to me that I wouldn't want my name associated with this crowd, so they might not either. So I emailed them, letting them know that they may have a case of copyright infringement here.

And now, after reading all this stuff... I'm going to go take a shower.

They're a well spoken crowd. Not spewing hate, at least not in the exerpts you included. Not that I agree, mind you, but still... That's a change from some of the shouting and ranting I've seen in the past.

Nakita, you devil you! Bob secretly approves, though, and is curious to know what comes of that e-mail.

Well I think you are making it up. Since you really know nothing about the nationalist movement, what it believes or anything about its goals. If you are so interested in displaying who hates who I might suggest you check out Autum Ashante who writes poems about the evil whites like the one below. She is certainly being trained by her father, Batin Ashante, a Nation of Islam poet/activist and Black Supremacist. Here is a sample she spewed:
White Nationalism Put U In Bondage
White nationalism is what put you in bondage
Pirate and vampires like Columbus, Morgan, and Darwin
Drank the blood of the sheep, trampled all over them with
Steel, tricks and deceit.
Nothing has changed take a look in our streets
The mis-education of she and Hegro — leaves you on your knee2grow
Black lands taken from your hands, by vampires with no remorse
They took the gold, the wisdom and all of the storytellers
They took the black women, with the black man weak
Made to watch as they changed the paradigm
Of our village
They killed the blind, they killed the lazy, they went
So far as to kill the unborn baby
Yeah White nationalism is what put you in bondage
Pirates and vampires like Columbus, Morgan, and Darwin
They drank the blood of the sheep, trampled all over them with
Steel laden feet, throw in the tricks alcohol and deceit.
Nothing has changed take a look at our streets.
She also has the privilege of doing her hate speech in front of elementy school children and of course HBO and many city and black functions. Unlike Prussian Blue that was denied performing at a country fair where by the way they do not play there Nationalist songs. I would even hazard a guess you have never even heard one of there songs. Try youtube and you might be surprised. Oh you can also find an article about them on earcandy a music review web site. If you want to know about the white nationalist movement you can do a search for Nationalist Party USA or the Nationalist Coalition.

Nothing will come of the email. The Prussian Blue UK group has been aware of the US group for years. They have no problem with it.

Dear anonymous, one and all:

Thank you for your comments. You have been civil in your disagreement, and I appreciate that, enough to pay you the courtesy of a civil response where I can. So...

First: Whether the UK group has an issue with the use of their trademark is entirely their decision. Were I the girls' mother, I'd be encouraging them to find another name, rather than treading on the legal prerogatives of another group.

Second: Coming as I do originally from the Chicago area, I am well aware of the Nation of Islam, and the BNP, and their rhetoric-- and I find it just as appalling, thank you. I have no patience with "hate speech" of any sort.

Third: No, nothing I posted here is made up. That is why I provided the link to the page from where I copied the quotes, so anyone could check to see that I had not altered or adulterated the views that were being represented. I did not even add commentary; I prefer to let them speak for themselves.

Fourth: I do know a fair amount about the "nationalist" movement. This is not the first time I have encountered their views, and I do not, as a rule, make decisions or form opinions without doing my homework.

For example-- yes, I have listened to a couple of the Prussian Blue songs, and read the lyrics of several others. It was searching to do just that which led me to the UK group's site.

My opinion? The girls have lovely voices, and some genuine talent, especially considering their age. However, I find the views they espouse in their more politically oriented songs to be... unpalatable.

Fifth: Christianity is not a "White thing;" it is a way of life available to any and all who choose it. Jesus and his apostles were Middle Eastern Jews, remember? And the faith spread into "all the world" through Africa as well as Europe.

As a priest, I have but one ax to grind, and that is the Gospel-- the good news of the saving grace offered to all in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the truth of his teaching. Anything that gets in the way of that-- stereotyping, hate speech, sectarian self-promotion-- from whatever source, is contrary to Christian faith, and I will oppose it.

Finally: though I will (barring unacceptable behavior) continue to allow anonymous comments, I really would prefer that you have the strength of character to express your views without hiding behind anonymity. I mean, really-- if two 13-year-old girls can manage that, can't you?

Based on the mp3s I found on this site, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree that their voices are "lovely" or that they have talent...
