Hitchens: The Night We Waved Goodbye to America


Read this essay by Peter Hitchens from this past Sunday's Daily Mail (U.K.).

Excerpt:

***
...I was in Washington DC the night of the election. America’s beautiful capital has a sad secret. It is perhaps the most racially divided city in the world, with 15th Street – which runs due north from the White House – the unofficial frontier between black and white. But, like so much of America, it also now has a new division, and one which is in many ways much more important. I had attended an election-night party in a smart and liberal white area, but was staying the night less than a mile away on the edge of a suburb where Spanish is spoken as much as English, plus a smattering of tongues from such places as Ethiopia, Somalia and Afghanistan.


As I walked, I crossed another of Washington’s secret frontiers. There had been a few white people blowing car horns and shouting, as the result became clear. But among the Mexicans, Salvadorans and the other Third World nationalities, there was something like ecstasy.

They grasped the real significance of this moment. They knew it meant that America had finally switched sides in a global cultural war. Forget the Cold War, or even the Iraq War. The United States, having for the most part a deeply conservative people, had until now just about stood out against many of the mistakes which have ruined so much of the rest of the world...

Read the whole thing, and think about what will be left for future generations, especially if we allow the Marxists to win.

We have less than ten weeks to prepare for that struggle.

Tempus fugit.

I sent this out to my email list with this comment:

"Where now is our last best hope on Earth?" Hitchens asks. I'll tell you where it is. It is in the hearts and minds of the Three Percent. We have had it easy up until now. Those of us who cherish the Founders' Republic will no longer have the luxury of sitting on the sidelines, kibitzing politics while the Gramscian dynamic tears down the culture and the country. We have not yet been forced to confront the beast like free men and women, because we lived in the right neighborhood, or county or state. THIS, ladies and gentlemen, is coming to our doorsteps and we will no longer be able to ignore it. We will now be forced to choose by our actions what we believe and who we will serve.

Hitchens despairs because he believes that the struggle is entirely political and that we have lost that. But he has forgotten the single pearl of truth once uttered by one of the rock stars of collectivism: "Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." And we, my fellow Three Percenters, still have the firearms. What we will now be called on to demonstrate is the will to go with the means.

"Where now is our last best hope on Earth?" Hitchens asks. Why in our hearts and in our minds. And, I might add, in our closets, gun safes, rifle racks and hidden caches. We have the means. But we must now choose this day who we will serve. Get ready. Hitchens is wrong. We have only lost the political fight with the collectivist darkness, we have not lost the war. Not by a long shot.

We, the Three Percent, do not have the luxury of sobbing as we wave goodbye to America. WE ARE AMERICA, and as Americans we will not go down into that darkness without a fight that will make our ancestors proud.

Make ready.
