“Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” – Mark Twain
When my father was diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, he decided not do chemotherapy or surgeries. He was very logical and pragmatic and knew his prospects for beating the cancer were almost impossible. He said, “it’s my time and I’m ready”. He was a staunch Calvinist Protestant and believed that there was something much better waiting for him on the other side. The only thing that he asked from me was to promise him that any newspaper article, death certificate, or tombstone that mentioned his name had to state that he was a proud ethnic American. He wanted to let everyone unequivocally know that read any of these items that he planted his flag firmly on the side of the Red, White, and Blue. He believed in and loved this country with all his heart and soul. He was in every sense-an American patriot.
My father volunteered for the Vietnam War. While many men only went because of the draft and fear of prosecution, my father had an impassioned hatred of everything that was communist and wanted to see it stamped out wherever it reared its ugly head. He saw Vietnam as a way for him to help do that. He also wanted to be a hero to his country, like his father and grandfather. My father was so proud of our family’s history and legacy. He would always tell me about how our brave great-great grandfather died at Andersonville trying to help free the slaves. He was a true Son of the American Revolution and a defender of freedom, justice, and the American way. I am and will always be extremely proud to be his son.
On this Memorial Day, I will visit him to say, “I love and thank you for everything.” He is now buried in a National Cemetery with his American flag, and I miss him every day.
Sadly, I often wonder what my father would think of me if he knew my political beliefs. My heart does not leap every time I hear the pledge of allegiance or the national anthem at a sportsball event. I do not love America or hold it in high esteem. I would never run out to volunteer for the U.S. Military. I am an American now only because that’s what it says on my passport. I think that he would feel sad, which really hurts me. However, we all have our own paths in life and mine is not only to fight against one ideology or other; it is a fight against the subjugation and disenfranchisement of my family, people, and race. These are the things I am willing to fight for, not abstract concepts of liberty or theoretical economic systems.
My people are my most precious possession.
I must take a moment to ponder the gravity of all of this. Is what we have now in America really what my forefathers fought for? From times of being skinned alive by Indians to us not being able to walk down our own city streets for fear of violent attack, is this what they dreamt of and died for? My answer is no. If they would have known about what the end game was going to be, they would have surely attempted to change the course of historical events.
This brings me to current day America; the only one that we can control. What can we do now to help our plight and stop the insanity? This 2017 Memorial Day holiday gives me pause but also courage to say that one way we can help our plight is that we, Whites, should no longer fight in the U.S. military. My reasoning is sound: the government and the third-world invaders that the government is importing to replace us absolutely care nothing for us. We would only be fighting for their future honor and glory, not for ours.
To be sure, like the U.S. in general, the U.S. Armed Forces still has a slight White majority. Most of its leaders are White, and the butcher’s bill in battle is also still overwhelming paid by Whites. But what are we fighting and dying for? It is certainly not a future for us and our children. It is definitely not to defend our homeland from invaders.
Many people point to the financial benefits, such as education, jobs, and health benefits as a motivator for many, which could be true; however, we are seeing that those benefits are being dangled like a carrot on a stick but quite often denied to more-and-more people who serve.
I mean, where is all the money going to come from to pay for all those foreign children coming here, along with non-White subsidies, endless wars, and “Muh” Israel if it goes to White soldiers and veterans, right? They are warriors and survivors anyway. They should be fine. Americans will pony up more money through charities. It’s totally cool, when you put it that way, right?
Nevertheless, is that a true motivation for putting your life on the line to fight for a country that does not care about you and have to kill helpless people across the globe so the stock market rises a few points, all to have access to a job and education, while still being called a racist and being replaced in every way imaginable? That depresses the hell out of me. And all the third-world people coming to this country want the American dream for sure, but their American dream is only about money and financial opportunity. It is not the American Dream earned by our ancestors’ blood, sweat, and tears. Our country is one big piggy bank of opportunity for everyone else but us. Move over Whitey, you are being replaced.
Like everything else in this country, the U.S. Armed Forces have been politicized and turned into a petri dish of social experimentation. The military is also not immune to the cultural enrichment of vibrant Diversity and (not)equal opportunity. The U.S. military began openly desegregating in 1948, and hasn’t looked back since. Whites are openly discriminated against so that non-Whites with Sociology degrees can surpass them on their way to becoming generals. Even the military’s own training manuals are meant to signal to minorities that Whites are evil and take advantage of them, and to signal to Whites that they must embrace their own replacement. While gang members of every shade and nationality other than White are allowed into the military with open arms, Whites have to live up to much higher expectations and regulation to receive the same level of promotion as their non-White counterparts. That is absolutely disgusting.
In closing, I will tell you about another family member, of whom I am tremendously proud. My cousin (and best friend growing up) is a proud Iraq War veteran. He told me before he left for Iraq that,”I want to be like your Dad and protect our country”. My dad was very proud of him and would lavish him with gifts and praise when he would come home on leave. My cousin was one of the men that cleared houses in Fallujah and Bagdad. It was a very scary and dangerous job, which he did with extreme valor and without trepidation.
When my cousin returned home for good, he was never the same. He did not smile anymore and was far more serious than before. He has not been able to hold a job since and is prescribed almost every psychotropic drug known to man. His wife left him and took his children, too. If not for being on permanent disability due to mental illness, he would likely be homeless. He spends most days playing video games and talking about things we did growing up. Sometimes, as long as his medications are working well enough, I get him to go fishing with me.
To this end, my extended White family, I want to see you live and fight for the right reasons, and not fight and die for the wrong ones. Sorry to be so black-pilling today. I wish you all a wonderful day or wonderful day off if you are one of the lucky few.
In honor of my father, I leave you with the Calvinist motto for the Protestant Reformation: Post Tenebras Lux (Light After Darkness). Its meaning is that one must persevere through great trials and tribulations to reach enlightenment.
Legally there is literally no such thing as an “American”. Legally there are only “UNITED STATES citizens”.
Nowhere on your passport does it say you are an American, sperblemonkey
An inspiring article about a father, family and wars. Memorial day reminds me that after the war of 1861 remembering the fallen was commemorated on “Decoration Day” (now Memorial Day) where the south had their own memorial for the fallen Confederate soldiers.
Iraq. Syria. Iran (tbd)
Author’s father volunteered for Vietnam because he hated communism. He probably didn’t think about it being the great jew legacy. It wasn’t fully known, back then, how subversive and anti-white jews are.
But if author’s father knew we fight neocon wars for a Greater Israel, I think he’d be proud his son didn’t.
Name a war in the 20th c. that was not fought for the yids?
Although Jews were complicit in communism, Vietnam was way after the Jews had been dislodged from the communist movement and had placed themselves firmly in cultural marxism, capitalism, and general degeneracy. In other words, communist nations where our natural allies. or at least they could have been if we would have been awoke way back then before most of us (myself included) were born.
looking forward at whites diminishing power and agency in USA; it is wise to keep whites in the military. do we want non-whites with all the firepower? we just need to stop fighting was for israel.
Take it from this combat vet with 10 years in the Infantry. Do not do it. There is nothing our government is doing that is worthy dying or killing for. And the truth is, there are worse things than dying.
I have friends who were in branches like the Navy and they were never at risk.
Me too. I guess, if you just want the GI bill, some good training and experience go for it. I always wanted to do more than that. I do not regret my service, because I know why I did it, and I am proud of it.
The injuries I sustained in combat have led to a lot of work on personal growth I might not have otherwise done, but the challenges are enormous. Everyone has struggles. What gets me, is that we thought we were serving our country, but looking back we accomplished nothing for all the deaths and shattered minds and bodies.
Excellent point of view! Thanks for discussing. Perhaps, go even further and maybe suggest that Americans stop working for the government in any capacity!? That means, quit taking federal, state and local jobs. Including quasi-government employment in education, not-for-profits, on the dole religious “charities” and much of the medical field (Re. Medicare, Medicaid and now Obamacare). These jobs directly threaten the freedom of free-market Americans and justify all of the liberal programs your group (e.g. AltRight) is railing against.
How are we ever going to subvert the institutions if we tune out from society?
Subvert? No, peacefully disengage. Joining in any way only brings on corruption.
Not a very realistic or mature response. Sorry.
The altright is railing against liberal programs? Richard Spencer is in favor of single payer health care. The traditional right is in favor of “small government,” which means they pretend to starve out the blacks and browns with minimal social welfare benefits, even as they flood the nation with legal and illegal black and brown immigrants.
I don’t really have a firm handle on what exactly the altright stands for just yet… But, presumed it eschews left leaning policies? Perhaps, Richard Spencer is an anomaly? Or, perhaps, just on a few positions? Although, I am certainly appalled by the racial hatred espoused by so many on these “altright sites”, and the childish language and behavior by so many commenters. The races actually overlap to an extremely large degree in most characteristics, including intelligence. I have served in the military alongside a lot of terrific folks from various backgrounds. Sad to see such disregard for others, IMHO.
Whites should not join the military. I joined, served honorably, and if I had the chance I wouldn’t do it again. The US military is anti-White. The US government is anti-White. If you join you’re going to fight for anti-Whites. You’ll fight so the US government can push an anti-White agenda at home. You’ll fight so the America will become a Turd World shithole and Israel will remain a Jewish state for the Jewish people. You’ll fight for Affirmative Action, Diversity, mudsharks, and mestizos. You’ll fight so one day you will end up homeless because Diversity means chasing down every last White person.
There’s no honor in fighting for non-Whites, cucks, Jews, or Muslims. None.
Generally speaking, there are far, far better ways to fight. More effective ways.
That said, military experience can be useful in certain instances as long as one has the moral fiber to understand that the religion of democracy is nothing more than a bunch of nonsense.
Definite NO!!! NO! NO! NO! Do not under any circumstance join the US military unless you want to be cannon fodder for jews. Screw the money and screw the free college. If you wanted that you should have just voted for Bernie Sanders. I do not say this because I’m some kind of peacenik pacifist hippie (I’m not), I say it because the US government does not care about you and it does not care about this country. Until we get a government that actually cares about the white majority and won’t flood us with a bunch of foreigners who hate us while they send you on a mission to die somewhere in the god forsaken desert DO NOT join. Screw them. Don’t be a fool.
Your chances of being cannon fodder in the Navy or Air Force are pretty low if you’re intelligent.
Even if you don’t die, you’re still working for the enemy. This government does not care about us. It wants to replace us and wishes we were all dead. Do not join ever! At least not as long as they continue their white genocide.
Picking up free education and skills helps our cause. I wouldn’t join the Military, but I’m not going to begrudge someone who does. I personally know Woke dudes who came out of the Military.
It seems you are assuming that that the USA military is benevolent. Let’s say that you join and then your mission is a brother war against Russia.
I say, let it turn turd brown.
If a young white man (or woman) wants to go into the military for the benefits, perhaps the best course of action would be to join the coast guard, navy or the air force. The coast guard can be dangerous, but they don’t go into combat. I don’t think that the U.S. Navy has fought a major battle since WW II, since there really are no other navies in the same league as America’s. Pilots and their support staff don’t get shot down too often, and they end their service with potentially lucrative skills as pilots, mechanics, etc.
Good article on a sensitive subject. I looked into military service many years ago but was medically disqualified due to poor eyesight. Today I would counsel a son to dodge the draft, if there were a draft. The U.S. military no longer serves or protects white Americans–the wars being waged are either pointless campaigns to keep the military-industrial complex in business (Afghanistan), or wars for Israel (Middle East). I’m even questioning the purported reasons for most of the wars that the United States has fought. For a person who wants a military career, I would advise some foreign country that accepts non-national volunteers, or the French Foreign Legion. If you want “military training,” I’d suggest looking into police reserves or sheriff’s auxiliary deputies, where available.
Question: What two things will survive a nuclear holocaust?
Answer: Crabgrass and cockroaches.
Private Joker to believe in the ZOG? Sir, no sir! Private Joker, I don’t believe I heard you correctly! Sir, negative sir! Why you goddamn communist heathen, you will sound off that you love the ZOG!
Tiger Woods Dindu Nuffin!
Heh. I still wonder what the real reason was for going after that guy, anyway. I mean, black sports star with a lot of money sleeps with a bunch of different women? Stop the presses! You could write the same story about just about any black NBA or NFL player picked at random. But they played it as the scandal of the century. Why?
Easy. He was seen as part of the white community and white people care about such things. Nig nogs being nig nogs is not a scandal. .
Whites in the Military…….
Good or Bad……
Join for the training and bennies, then get the hell out when your term is up. Join Marines, Navy, Air Force. The Army takes just about anyone.
I was a regular in the Army from 2004-09, serving as a Forward Observer. I don’t regret my service because I did get 100% of my tuition and books paid for, and I even got a living stipend called Basic Allowance for Housing, which paid all my bills. If not for that benefit, I’d be getting crushed by the Jews and their predatory student loan system. That said, while I’m extremely grateful for the benefits I received, all this nonsense about “serve your country,” and other rah-rah BS is just that, a bunch of BS. I spent two years of my life in Iraq, and for what? I knew a lot of good and decent white men that lost their lives. In my unit alone, we had 11 deaths, and nine of them were white. The combat arms specific jobs are dominated by whites because they get suckered more easily into feeling patriotic – because they actually care about the US. That’s why the “butcher bill” is paid mostly by white service members. And, I ask, for what? What good came from it? One of the reasons I took the red pill is because the Alt Right seeks to stop engaging in pointless wars. Some wars cannot be avoided or at least, serve our best interest to fight them. So, if you’re a young man reading this, and you want the advice of a “real patriotic badass,” then here it is… Don’t fight the wars my friends and I fought. Focus yourself on the mission of the Alt Right. That is far more important than what we did. Stand shoulder to shoulder with us now and fight for your future, your very right to exist.
Vile Leftist (((Snake))) embeds within White Militia Movement to Attack and Defame them……
This is what (((they))) truly FEAR……
This is one of the reasons why having White Men with Military Training and Experience……
I served in the Army in Iraq as an infantryman. I served from 1999 to 2003. I had no political beliefs really until 9-11 and then became a patriotard mostly because I wanted to wage war on Muslims. I adopted the other cuckservative positions because that was what my “side” was supposed to believe in. By spring of 2005 I was surfing WN websites. I had some issues adjusting after the war as well but was still able to earn a couple degrees and obtain decent employment (this by no means makes me any better or stronger than the author’s cousin mentioned in the above article). The war in Iraq (and 9-11) brought me from being indifferent to politics to very interested in them.
At this point I would only recommend (to White men) joining the military for the experience (go into light infantry, special forces, or intelligence) and for the benefits afterward (college, VA benefits). Don’t join to “serve your country” because this no longer is your country. America is the greatest force on earth for White genocide, globalism, and degeneracy.
Happy Memorial Day
probably better off getting a job and going to community colleges though with the situation we are in now
“Don’t join to “serve your country” because this no longer is your country.”
Got some chills reading this……
Thank you, Trey……
And thank you to your Father and Cousin for their Sacrifice, Courage, Manhood, and Honor……
I agree with you and also disagree……
I only disagree with you in part because Military Training and Expertise might be needed by Whites in the Future……
I only disagree with you in part because America might severely destabilize in the Future……
…..and I wouldn’t want the Military to be in the Hands of Non-Whites…..
Post Tenebras Lux…….
I’m not anti-military per se, but if your going to risk your life for a cause you should choose better than to secure the existence of Israel and a future for Jewish children. There hasn’t been a War that has been fought for my interests in my lifetime and that is unlikely to change in the forseeable future. The real war is at home and its against the (((globalists))) and (((financiers))).
