Is British Nationalism really “right wing”?

Will Wright

Out-dated terminology

I don’t really like the word “right-wing” being used to describe British Nationalism position, or any White Racial Nationalism. Even more so, I dislike the expression “the far-right” Why? Let me tell you.

I accept that “left” and “right” are so deeply ingrained in our language and thought, that it is hard not to use those terms, and I certainly know that I do use them myself. But I wish that we could obliterate them.

I want to see the Nationalist movement as new, different, vibrant, dynamic and ultimately successful. I see it as at odds with the Establishment world, which I see as tired, old, degenerate, corrupt – and suicidal. I see Nationalism as a radical and revolutionary creed. I want to see the Nationalist movement smash (metaphorically) the old political world into a million pieces, that can never be put back together again. We must build a new, stronger, better Britain, that will endure.

The old world had built-in weaknesses – one of which was the class system.
But the words “right-wing” and “left-wing” belong to that old corrupt world. They belong to an era of class warfare, whereas Nationalism is, and must be, a classless movement.

In the old world, the left, and particularly the extreme left, saw themselves as representing by far the biggest social class – the working class. They believed, and some still do believe, that they had a built-in advantage, that would one day translate into permanent political power.

In this left-wing view of the world, the political right is an old-fashioned minority that is losing ground. The far left sees what it insists on calling “fascism” as a fight back by the old ruling class. A sort of counter revolution. The left claim that British Nationalism is a part of the old ruling class that represents a minority that is doomed to failure.

I reject that picture, created by our ideological enemies, totally. But if we use old world terminology, created by our enemies, then we are accepting the enemy view of the world.

British Nationalism and Realism

While I like the imagery of smashing the old political world into a million pieces, I am old enough to realise that this is not, in practical terms, how revolutions happen. There is always some degree of compromise with the old regime, as I have explained in previous posts.

The dynamic mass movement that I would like to see emerge, will always have some common ground with other ideologies. Sometimes that will be left-wing ideologies, and at other times and places, right-wing ideologies. Before we come to power, we will need political allies, in other camps, because history teaches us that any new movement that succeeds will always have allies already in place in the old regime – the hated Establishment!

When we find allies in Conservative circles, we should recognise that these people are allies, rather than a part of our movement. Sometimes these people are temporary allies, to enable us to come to power, or win an objective, like leaving the EU. But people do change their political thinking and allegiances. Some Conservatives, and others, might one day become proper, ideological British Nationalists.

But in the meantime, British Nationalism does not benefit from being grouped with old-fashioned Conservatives, or labelled “right-wing” or “far-right”. We want to win over all indigenous classes, to create a classless mass movement, and eventually a classless society. We are part-way towards a classless society, so being branded as “the far-right” does us practical harm.

In this regard, I do not agree with either AK Chesterton, or John Tyndall, embracing the enemy label “extremist”. Being an “extremist” clearly implies that you are out on a limb – in an over-the-top minority position. We want to become the majority. We need to become the majority political ideology if our race and nation are to survive.

It seems to me that Tyndall and Chesterton were being self-indulgent, and that it was a gut reaction in defiance of our enemies, when they described themselves as extremists. I once cringed when I read the ludicrous Eddy Morrison write “We are the Ultras”.

In the same way that everyone ought to think well of themselves, no one should want to be, or even be thought of by others as, an extremist. British Nationalists should believe that ours is the correct political ideology and work to convert others, so that ours becomes the majority political view. Labelling yourself as an extremist is doing the enemy’s work.

British Nationalism must smash the left’s notional link with the working class

Antonio Gramsci wanted to see the Marxists take over the West’s universities. His allies in the Frankfurt School achieved that. The left broadly won over the educated middle classes, in a way that the older Marxists had never won over the working class – either as revolutionaries, or voters.

But because the educated go on to govern us, the left scored a more lasting victory than either a violent revolution, or a leftist victory at a general election. But those with a higher education will never be the biggest class in society.
While leftist ideas have won a victory through the backdoor, which enables left-wing ideas to be translated into government policies, the left no longer represents the biggest class. This thought is unsettling for some on the left. So much so, that they refuse to accept it. Some lefties don’t like the idea that they are now the elite, and very much out-of-step with traditional working class ideas.

Because voting habits are ingrained over generations with many British voters, left-wing Labour MPs continue to win seats in working class constituencies. But they do not truly speak for their constituents on issues such as race and immigration, the EU, defence, and law and order.

British Nationalists need to find a way to smash Labour, and any left-wing successor party, as an electoral force. Then those people who are highly educated, but brainwashed with Cultural Marxism, will stand out as an unpopular minority. It needs to be rammed home to working class voters that Labour is no longer their party.

Margaret Thatcher is credited with standing up to the old Soviet Union and its Warsaw Pact allies. She claimed the credit for the decline of Soviet Communism. Because her laissez-faire economic policies wrecked heavy manufacturing industry at home, and her raft of trade union laws hampered those communists who had taken over some of them, she claimed a victory over British Communism.

But what she didn’t do is root out the well-embedded Cultural Marxists in our universities. That must be done as a priority, to prevent future generations being infected with an ideology that amounts to racial suicide.

If Cultural Marxist ideas are killed off in our universities, and Labour is now widely exposed as a politically-correct, educated middle class, London-centric party, then Labour might eventually die.

But let us concentrate on which political ideas politicians and political parties actually stand for, rather than lazily labelling people as “right-wing” or “left-wing”. Because using old world terminology doesn’t advance racial nationalism.

Some thoughts on the State of British Nationalism

Will Wright gives his thoughts on the current state of British Nationalism. This is, of necessity, a brief review, but perhaps it will stimulate thought and discussion via the Comments section below.

It is very clear that none of the three main parties will pursue policies to advance our survival as a nation, let alone our success. The British people need a political party dedicated to promoting their interests. Such a party needs to be racial-nationalist in character, democratic and with a proper legal constitution. At the moment I cannot see anything that fits the bill. But let us take a look at some of the groups and dead ends out there.

United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) – has aimed for a level of professionalism on a par with the Establishment parties. It appears to have a constitution and a rule book and a ruling executive. It appears that Nigel Farage would have liked to have abolished the executive and have an even more personal leadership based on his own personality and power. UKIP did well to win most of the British seats in the EU Parliament. It also won about four million votes, which pressured Prime Minister, David Cameron into holding an In/Out referendum on EU membership.

But UKIP is far too worried about respectability and not being seen as a ‘far-right’ or racialist party. I believe that this timidity has limited its potential and more or less consigned it to being just another Establishment party. It has gone into decline after the EU referendum. It may have been used as a vehicle to draw support away from the BNP.

British National Party (BNP) – born of John Tyndall’s desire to have absolute control over any party that he led, it doesn’t have a proper democratic and legal constitution. It was stagnant for many years before Nick Griffin mounted a coup. It therefore did not even meet Tyndall’s needs. It started to grow and win local elections under Griffin. The political climate favoured its growth and the BNP worked hard to recruit people.

But Griffin squandered the opportunity to educate patriotic recruits and turn them into lifelong, ideological racial nationalists. Too many party people did not really know what they were fighting for, other than a vague notion that they were against political correctness. Griffin seemed to be too concerned about being seen to be respectable. He wanted a break with the past and that’s what the BNP got. For me, he broke the ideological link to previous nationalists going back to just after the Second World War. Many BNP members thought that their only enemy was Islamism.

Under Tyndall, the Party’s fault was a dictatorial leadership. Under Griffin this fault remained and he added a dilution of nationalist ideology to the problems.

English Defence League (EDL) – has many faults. If nationalists are going to win in Britain, then it needs to be done by a political party winning seats consistently and then winning power. But the EDL isn’t nationalist, or racialist, or even a political party. It was founded in Luton as a kind of crusade against Islamism. It sees its identity as ‘English’ rather than ‘British’ at a time when the continuance of the United Kingdom is under threat. On the surface, the EDL isn’t concerned about respectability. It attracts politically illiterate football supporters. They know something is wrong with the country and they want some kind of action. In the hands of a racial nationalist party they could be educated and turned into dedicated activists. Instead they hold disorderly street demonstrations and shout football terrace type chants. Oddly, the unrespectable leaders seem at pains to state that they are pro- Israel.

National Action – has been declared to be a terrorist group, by Home Secretary, Amber Rudd. This was because they applauded the assassination of the Searchlight/Hope Not Hate-supporting Labour MP, Jo Cox by a mentally unwell man. Masked men giving stiff right arm salutes is not the right path for nationalists. The Establishment is looking for any excuse to ban nationalist groups. Islamic terrorist supporters are crying out for ‘even-handedness’ – they want nationalist groups banned. It is idiocy to give the Government that excuse. In any case, terrorism cannot succeed. Only a mass movement and a political party can effect the necessary change to our country. NA is a dangerous dead end and authentic nationalists should avoid it like the plague.

Britain First – seems to have punched above its weight. This small group has a pair of very brave, very active leaders, Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen. Their skilled use of the internet to promote their activities has seen them get international attention. Provided they can recruit and educate nationalists, then they might have the beginning of a good nationalist party. They need to turn their publicity into election success. It may be that they are, like the BNP and the EDL, too focused on Islamism.

National Front – this is a well-meant attempt to resurrect the original party of the same name. This is a tiny party and some of its members are not old enough to remember the golden years of the nineteen seventies. At the time of writing, it is not making its presence felt on a big enough scale nationally. Has some good people, but not enough of them.

British Movement – this is supposed to be a revival of the original party of that name. In my opinion it is a complete waste of time and energy – a real dead end. It doesn’t fight elections or hold demonstrations. It is an inward-looking group of Hitler enthusiasts. Some of its people don’t even know much about Hitler. If you are an authentic British racial nationalist, then don’t waste your time with this group.

London Forum – is useful for getting nationalists together to hear speeches on various themes. The speeches can then be re-produced on You Tube for dissemination to a wider audience. Its success may be due to its being not party-aligned. If one party emerged as highly dominant on the nationalist scene, then that non-alignment ought to change. Everyone serious about success should then join that party – like what happened in 1967 with the National Front.

*****

Serious nationalists should consider how they are going to succeed. Here are some suggested guidelines.

1.       Know your ideology. Know national and international history. Read books by nationalists and, sometimes, our ideological enemies. Know what constitutes nationalist thinking – and what does not. But don’t be too keen to exclude people. Know what you are fighting for.

2.       Loyalty – be loyal to the Idea, the Cause. But be loyal to the movement, and importantly, be loyal to each other.

3.       Be brave. Physically and also psychologically. Nationalists will be assailed from all sides.

4.       Be self-disciplined.

5.       Don’t be overly bothered about respectability. But don’t go in the opposite direction and try to be politically extreme or sensationalist for its own sake.

6.       Recognise that our ability to persuade our fellow countrymen is the key to our success. Develop your skills as a persuader and a political propagandist. Read up on influence and persuasion techniques. Know your enemies’ arguments and hone your debating skills.

7.       Understand that winning a general election is the only way that a nationalist party can succeed in the UK. Shun any talk of infiltrating the Establishment parties or of armed revolts or terrorist activity.

8.       Unity. One big nationalist party may succeed – a myriad of tiny nationalist groups never will. Many of the groups mentioned have members that might make good members of a new reformed nationalist movement.

9.       Leadership. While we should reject dictatorship and personality cults, leadership is important to success. It comes in different forms and operates on different levels. There are organisers, speakers, writers, website-designers, administrators, fund-raisers and distributers of books and magazines.

 

“I Am A Racialist! And Proud!”

This post, from Will Wright, was originally posted in the Comments Box of an article published in the Telegraph Online, “Three in five Britons support a ‘hostile environment’, for illegal immigrants, poll shows”. It will probably have been taken down by the time you read this, so here is the full version.

A racialist is someone who believes in racial differences and separate racial development. This is someone who wants his own race to survive, thrive and prosper. Someone who is a racialist might, or might not, also be a racial supremacist. That is someone who believes his own race is inherently superior to other races and wants it to thrive on a global scale, if necessary, at the expense of other races. But being a racialist is about a love of your own people – not hatred of other peoples. No one can help being born of a particular race and it would be wrong to hate anyone because of this.

Any hatred should properly be directed towards the Establishment and the political class, rather than other races. The politicians have created a multi-racial nightmare. Some individual politicians are more deserving of blame than others.

‘Racism’ is a word promoted by the Politically Correct lobby in the United States. It is meant to imply hatred and criminality. It has been imported from America by the PC brigade here in the United Kingdom. Since the Seventies, it has gradually replaced the correct word, ‘racialism’. This was always the intention. Reject the import and always use the word ‘racialism’.

Racial Nationalists are people who love their own country and don’t want large numbers of foreigners to live permanently in their ancestral homeland. They particularly don’t want racial foreigners settling in their country.

Liberals and the Left try to intimidate anyone who speaks in favour of their own people’s interests by shouting ‘racist’. But unless large numbers of British people are prepared to say “I am a racialist”, rather than “I’m not racist, but…” then Britain will surely be destroyed. We need hundreds, then thousands then tens of thousands to declare “I am a racialist”. This as a prelude to millions voting into power a racial nationalist political party.

The National Front, in the Seventies, was such a party. It was destroyed by every dirty trick in the book.

  • The Establishment putting up the election deposit.
  • A massive campaign of violence by the far left.
  • Oppressive race laws designed to crush any dissent against mass non-white immigration.
  • Nationalists being driven out of jobs.
  • Infiltration by the state security services etc.

In the Nineties and the new millennium, the British National Party was a poor imitation of the National Front. It found that banks wouldn’t give it banking facilities and printers would not print its literature. It faced the same blanket hostility from broadcasters and newspapers that the Front had. It faced another threat too – UKIP.

UKIP offered a ‘safe’ haven for those who felt patriotic but were too afraid to declare, “I am a racialist”. UKIP people from Farage downwards were terrified of that magic, imported word ‘racist’. That is why they drove out Godfrey Bloom, Anne Marie Waters, Henry Bolton, Jo Marney, and others.

UKIP’s immigration policy of an ‘Australian points-based system’ is totally inadequate to save Britain as a white country. We need a complete halt to non-white immigration and a start made on a policy of phased repatriation of all non-whites.

Nigel Farage was asked what his greatest achievement was. I thought that he might have felt that helping to get Britain out of the EU was this. But no, he thought that stopping the ‘far-right’ was more important. Farage is a false messiah – just another judas goat.

So, let us make a start. I am a racialist. Now you write it. You will feel so much better – and you won’t ever again be intimidated by the American-imported word ‘racist’.
