Perspective

The Passion of Ben Sasse

While drinking my morning coffee and perusing Twitter on Thursday, I came across a remarkable post, penned by the Junior Senator from Nebraska, Ben Sasse:


The tweet was almost too perfect. A Midwestern “Never Trump” Republican blaming Russians for the NFL-Anthem controversy. First, they stole our democracy, now our football? Is nothing sacred? The “American vs. American fighting” was equally silly, a corollary to the conservative mantra “I don’t see race—I just see Americans.

I jumped on it, of course.


Pretty tame stuff. But the Senator was triggered, and he launched into a tweet storm:


By the end, Sasse had devolved into incoherent insults, mixing and matching various chestnuts:


Apparently, I’m a unimportant loser and wimp, over whom a senator-cum-presidential-hopeful is obsessing . . . I should stop taking millions from the Kremlin, so I can finally move out of my mom’s place and get a job . . . I don’t “get America,” but then I get America all too well, since I’m responsible for the ongoing racial strife . . . Mom’s basement . . . pajama boy!! . . . the Russians!!! . . . literally Hitler!!!! . . . If only Sasse had dropped “tentacle porn” he could have won Bingo.

Sasse’s tweets quickly became a news item, requiring, among various conservative groupie outlets, the use of ALL CAPS: “Ben Sasse Just Owned Richard Spencer On Twitter And It Is AWESOME!”

Perhaps Sasse truly owned me—AWESOMELY! Or, perhaps, I struck a sore nerve. Sasse certainly expressed a deep-seated feeling of anger and confusion that seemed as if it had been lingering for a long time. One pictures a solitary, angst-ridden Sasse repeatedly lecturing the walls of his office before finally mustering the courage to publish his thoughts on Twitter.

I was tempted not to respond (and simply return to the Kremlin for my monthly stipend). But that would let this teachable moment go to waste.

America 101

To be fair to Sasse, he’s not your typical political hack. He is a goober, to be sure, but a goober who earnestly believes in something; he even systematized it. You could say Sasse is a meta-goober. The insults are stupid, but the six tweets that make up “America 101” deserve to be read in full, as they amount to a concise summary of what “principled conservatives”—that is, Cucks—hold near and dear. Hillsdale professors and Heritage Foundation scholars have written whole books saying little more than what Sasse articulated in less 1,000 characters.

So here’s “America 101”:

Bending The Knee

Where to begin? A good place is with the Anthem controversy, which sparked the exchange.

What made Sasse’s initial assertion so laughable is that the “Take A Knee” protest hardly required maniacal Soviet agents, preying on innocent Americans, to come about. The Anthem debate is one more chapter in the American saga once known as “The Negro Question.” It is the question of the political and social status of Africans living in a White country: slave or citizen, American or something else.

And this isn’t just a question for White people. It’s one Blacks have been asking themselves for a long time: Can we, as Africans, take part in the pageantry and symbolism of a country that has never really been ours, and which, until very recently, maintained our social and political inferiority? Is assimilation possible? If so, is it desirable? And if not, then what?

Sasse (and Donald Trump, too) can claim the Anthem controversy is “not about race,” but it very much is about race for everyone participating in it. In the words of Colin Kaepernick, who started it all last summer,

I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

Some White football icons, like Tom Brady and Jerry Jones, might attempt to reinterpret the protest by locking arms with Black players and saying the whole thing is about wholesome “team unity.” But they are just as self-deceived as Ben Sasse.

Even to claim that pushback against Kaepernick and the kneelers “isn’t about race” but civic allegiance is begging the real question: for political allegiance is all about race and ethnicity; this holds for every nation in the world, and has intrinsically and explicitly been a part of American history.

American History X

It’s amusing to be lectured by Sasse on the “true” meaning of America and what he calls “Western Heritage,” for he seems to define both by omitting most all of human history. While it’s quaint to say that the West is defined by “see[ing] people not as tribes but as individuals of limitless worth,” I have to ask: What period of time is Sasse actually referring to? Indeed, what world is he living in?

For despite Sasse’s fervent wishes, “racism” is as American as Baseball, as that funny Antifa banner at Fenway Park recently announced.

The greatest Founding fathers were slave holders, who never considered Africans as “individuals of limitless worth,” not to mention fellow citizens included in the magical phase “All Men Are Created Equal.” In The Federalist (No. 2), John Jay thanked “Providence,” not for giving us America as a rootless platform for the world, but because She granted

this one connected country to one united people—a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence.

Jay was not referring just to White people or even White Christians; he was referring to Anglo-Saxon Protestants, and Europeans similarly endowed.

The greatest catastrophe in U.S. history, the Civil War, was, again, all about race. It was caused primarily by slavery—or, more to the point, was fought over the Negro Question: the status of a slave-owning aristocracy within the United States, the status of slaves vis-à-vis White labor, and that of potentially freed Africans in a White man’s country.

The conflict is tragic, in the deepest sense of the word, in that Abraham Lincoln—sainted as the “Great Emancipator”—explicitly claimed that he was willing to maintain slavery to save the union and that he desired White supremacy to continue however the conflict might be resolved. As he stated in his famous debate with Stephen Douglas:

[T]here is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.

The immigration question, too, has always been about race, even through Hollywood has trained modern Americans to think of it as a centuries-long free-for-all.

The United States pioneered racially based restriction. The first immigration law, the 1790 Naturalization Act, restricted citizenship to “free white persons . . . of good character.” It was only in 1870 that the naturalization process was extended to Africans; then again, this law was an ad hoc response to America’s perplexing Negro Question; other races, most notably the Chinese, were denied the process.

And none of this should be understood as a residue of some bad European past. To the contrary, this racial conception of immigration and naturalization was uniquely American. Race was the basis of citizenship in the new frontier, where sovereign subjugation could no longer be operative. The expansion of the United States as an entity followed the expansion of the White man across the continent—almost always at the expense of other races.

The 1924 Johnson-Reed Act—a major restriction that effectively led to net-neutral immigration throughout the middle of the 20th century—was written “to preserve the ideal of American homogeneity.” That should not be confused with “keeping things the same.” The Act, in fact, was designed to preference Nordics, the originally founding population, and not the Irish and Southern Europeans who had flowed into the country following the Civil War.

Speaking on the Act, Representative William Vaile stated that the Czech and the Italian and the Jew came to America, but did not make America:

[T]hey came to this country because it was already made as an Anglo-Saxon commonwealth. They added to it, they often enriched it, but they did not make it, and they have not yet greatly changed it.

We are determined that they shall not.

I could go on . . . to the pioneering of racial sciences, eugenics, racial segregation, and the re-patriation of African slaves and non-White citizens, all of which are equally “As American As Baseball.” But it’s worth returning my earlier question: What exactly is Senator Sasse referring to when he talks about “Western heritage” or “the real America”?

The answer is that Sasse is referencing a mythic American founding . . . an imagined and useable past . . . one suitable for Sunday school lessons and FOX News holiday specials. Most important, it’s a past that has been coded to adhere to the social, moral, and racial revolutions that occurred since the mid-1960s. In this rosy view, the Founders created a universal state, one based on human rights and suitable for all mankind. “America,” in this view, was a way out of Europe, a way out of history itself, even American history.

The old revolutionary leftist standpoint was to hate the past and seek to create a new future: Option 1: Death to America! Equality now! The old conservative view was to revere the past and seek to maintain it: Option 2: Make America Great Again! By mid-century, there was a new synthesis, in which one could revere the past, while seeking to change the present and future. America’s post-Enlightenment founding documents—the Declaration of Independence in particular—were viewed as the “true” meaning of American history. The Founders (flawed slavers as they were) would be redeemed as subsequent generations would “cash the checks” deposited in 1776, 1789, 1865, and 1964. This formed the basis of Option 3: America Was Always About Equality! (The previous generations just didn’t know it yet.)

This is not to say that there are not real egalitarian—even revolutionarily leveling— ideals within the American founding, resulting from the men present, their challenge to justify a new Republic in the 18th century, and their adoption of contemporaneous political currents. This is also not to say that these egalitarian ideals have not informed American ideology throughout the centuries—even the “racist” political ideas.

The identitarian perspective on this is one of tragedy. It was that “one united people” (Anglo-Saxon Protestants), whom John Jay spoke about, who resonated with the language of the founders, in the positive sense of America as a country of uprightness, self-reliance, and freedom. It was only Whites who could maintain America’s universalist fictions. For other races—and for the degraded White mass—liberty, justice, and equality are simply excuses to turn America into a dumping ground, a place to make a quick buck, or shopping mall on a continental scale.

The Soy Boy

It’s really hard to get mad at Ben Sasse, for it feels like holding a grudge against a child, who knows not what he does or who he is. And he can be partially excused for “not seeing race” in that he was raised in Nebraska in the ‘70s and ‘80s, at a time when the state was 95 percent White. Even today, Nebraska roughly approximates the Nordic America created by the 1924 Immigration Act.

The son of Lutherans, farmers, and manufactures, Sasse grew up weeding Nebraskan soy fields as young man, making him, in more ways than one, the original “soy boy.” I’ve never met Sasse, but I’ve never seen a video or photo of him online in which he didn’t have a doe-eyed and earnest—alternately confused, naïve, and grateful—look on face, like a 9-year-old who’d just received a new bike from Santa Claus.

Ben Sasse, contemplating what it means to be an American

Ben Sasse, the Junior Senator from Awwshucks

With a PhD from Yale, Sasse, no question, has high intelligence. But a man like Sasse truly reveals the limits of mere intelligence. For what’s the point of intelligence if one’s soul remains that of a goofball and pushover? Sasse has apparently written a book about being an adult without really becoming one, for being an adult—and not just a smart soy boy—means putting aside childish things.

One of Sasse’s saddest moments is when he tells me that I would be happier if I simply gave in and believed what he believes. I’m a pretty fun guy . . . but perhaps he’s right? Perhaps I would be “happier” if I clung to his gooey Americanism, much like a dying man clings to rosary beads or a crumpled photo of his sweetheart. But to even offer this advice is to assume that “happiness” is a value. I’ve visited retirement homes, preschools, and facilities for the mentally retarded; in all cases, the constituents seemed exceedingly happy.

Sasse is one of those White Americans who will always refuse to fight back when his people are under threat—and then seek to explain away his meekness as “principled.” The ultimate problem with the cuckservative, as someone related to me on Twitter, is that he wants to protect civilization, but he ultimately believes that going too far to protect civilization is worse than trying to destroy it.

Like a primitive, Sasse is intensely afraid of and reverent toward modern taboos; he’d rather die than be considered “racist” or a heretic on the question of “human rights.” He seeks, desperately, to morally justify the contemporary world, to reassure himself that actually fighting back—or seeking power for his people—would be wicked and wrong.

In this way, my historicization of Sasse’s “America 101” simply won’t make a difference. Because facts won’t make a difference. Sasse isn’t putting forth facts; he’s putting forth faith. He wants to “explain” America to me, but doesn’t offer any reason why anyone should buy into it. “Conservatism” or “Western values” suffice as a shallow person’s replacement for Christianity, just as calling ideas “Nazism” or “un-american” unburdens Sasse of actually thinking through them.

Put another way, Sasse is a fanatic. And the fanatic is always concealing a secret doubt.

      We have to retcon blacks into white people’s history because blacks couldn’t write or build a competitive civilization of their own.

  • Albionic American

    Apparently Sasse titled his Ph.D. dissertation, “The Anti-Madalyn Majority: Secular Left, Religious Right, and the Rise of Reagan’s America,” where he interprets the Reagan Revolution as a reaction to Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s atheist activism. (Just guessing from the title; I haven’t read it.)

    Anyone who attributes that much importance to O’Hair’s career as America’s foremost public atheist in the 1960’s and 1970’s hasn’t thought very deeply about religion as a social and psychological phenomenon. Atheism in the U.S. has become nearly a mainstream world view since O’Hair’s murder in 1995, and mainly for reasons that have nothing to do with her. Most of today’s atheist firebrands under the age of 50 probably have only the vaguest knowledge about her, if even that.

    And Sasse’s biography in general strikes me as the life of a not particularly worldly or sophisticated man, because an elite education and mysteriously described jobs in various consulting firms and government agencies doesn’t necessarily give you the experiences you need for understanding the crisis facing the world’s white civilizations. He needs to leave the country’s archipelago of white safe spaces and see more of the real world, where incompetent nonwhite people simply can’t build or maintain the kind of civilization he takes for granted in his sheltered life.

    Sasse has titled his book, The Vanishing American Adult: Our Coming-of-Age Crisis–and How to Rebuild a Culture of Self-Reliance.

    I guess he didn’t get the memo that “self-reliance” dog-whistles “white supremacy.” Because “supremacy” now apparently means self-reliance, competency, intelligence, forethought, understanding of cause and effect, planning for the future and the other things that even mediocre white people tend to do better than the world’s POC’s.

  • Yehudah Finkelstein

    On one point, Spencer is incorrect.

    “The 1924 Johnson-Reed Act—a major restriction that effectively led to net-neutral immigration throughout the middle of the 20th century—was written “to preserve the ideal of American homogeneity.” That should not be confused with “keeping things the same.” The Act, in fact, was designed to preference Nordics, the originally founding population, and not the Irish and Southern Europeans who had flowed into the country following the Civil War.”

    Most Irish immigration occurred BEFORE the Civil War. The Irish already had political power, and the quota system of the 1924 Reed Johnson Act gave the Irish and the Germans the highest numbers of immigration quotas, reflective of their positions as the first and second largest European ethnic groups in America. America was so dominated by Irish and German immigrants and their descendants that both groups opposed and managed to delay American entry into both World Wars on the side of England and opposed to Germany.

    • Yehudah Finkelstein

      I’d also like to add that Spencer leaves out the fact that restricting Jewish immigration after the 1919-1920 Red Scare was perhaps the raison d’etre for the 1924 Immigration Act. Keeping out Italians was another factor. So were West Coast concerns about Asian immigration. But the 1924 Immigration Act had nothing to do with restricting Irish immigration for the simple fact that the Irish had by and large already stopped immigrating to America.

      • Nova Morium

      • Krafty Wurker

        The Jewish and the Italian anarchists threw one a too many bombs.

    • JosephtheGreat

      Spencer must have read some bogus history written by a jew claiming that Irish weren’t considered white. The Great Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States who led the war against the red skins, was himself the son of Irish immigrants. The Irish have done a lot to build this country for white men, to which they most definitely were included. .

      • Yehudah Finkelstein

        Jackson was an Ulster Scot, a Presbyterian. While hated by the English WASP elites, Jackson and his Scots Irish frontier supporters found easier acceptance into America do to their Protestantism than did the Irish Catholics.

        I don’t think Spencer read some bogus Jew history about the Irish not being white. I think Spencer is just biased as a WASP and is upholding Nordicism to signal against the Irish. What’s telling is that Nordicism had fallen out of favor by the 1920s in America. Madison Grant, the tribune of Nordicism, was replaced by Lothrop Stoddard as the most important American White Advocate following World War I. Stoddard thought Nordicism to be misguided and wanted Whites to unite in order to keep out non-whites. This was the thesis of his seminal “The Rising Tide of Color Against White World-Supremacy”, in which Stoddard correctly foresaw the decline of the White world due to the growing non-white populations.

        Nordicism was so discredited and put on the backburner that the Irish were given substantial Immigration quotas in the 1924 Immigration Act.

        • Albionic American

          I suspect a lot of the descendants of the lower-class whites brought over as indentured servants by the Cavaliers also intermarried with the Scots-Irish. Even though their respective migrations came from different parts of the British Isles, they shared a disdain for the Southern aristocracy that treated both groups like crap, and they probably lived enough alike that they got along.and found acceptable mates in each others’ communities.

          • Krafty Wurker

            The Shenandoah Valley in Virginia was about 1/3 Scotch-Irish, 1/3 Germanics, and 1/3 English. Everyone west of the Blue Ridge has that in varying degrees in their gene pool.

          >Nordicism was so discredited and put on the backburner that the Irish were given substantial Immigration quotas in the 1924 Immigration Act.
          This is false, one quick glance at Madison Grant’s map of the present distribution of European Races will show you that he classified Irish people as part of the Nordic Race. Earlier German Nordicists did the same.

          • Yehudah Finkelstein

            Agreed, but not to the degree Madison Grant was.

      • Krafty Wurker

        I see that one of my favorite Irish-Polish Catholics in the US Senate, Chris Murphy of Connecticut is now calling for restricting the 2nd Amendment.

    • Krafty Wurker

      Spencer is right in that Kenneth L. Roberts, the noted writer of history and historical fiction, pushed hard to get Scotch and Scotch-Irish immigrants given quota preferences. Robert’s book, “Why Europe Leaves Home” was a best seller at the time, and still is a good read, if you are curious about the immigration dynamics of the time.

        I have had black and Latino heritage shoved down my throat my whole life. Jim Webb’s book, “Born Fighting: How the Scots-Irish Shaped America” gave me a sense of pride I didn’t have before. I highly recommend reading it and then send a copy to a nonwhit4e immigrant.

  • LiddyLiberty

    Ben Sasse is a liar. He claims he believes in dignity and that in America skin color and ancestry have nothing to do with intrinsic value. Let’s look at these, shall we? The country’s publicly funded Universities give preferences to people with black skin over people with white skin and/or Asian skin. That is federal government policy. If your ancestry is Hispanic and you decide to attend a state university, you pay lower in-state tuition. That is your reward for breaking the law. If your ancestry is American, you pay higher out-of-state tuition. If your ancestry is Mexican, and you break the law, you are rewarded with welfare, Medicaid, and amnesty. America says we can’t divide your family. If your ancestry is American, and you break the law, we break up your family by sending you to jail. As for dignity, Sasse believes that stealing gives you dignity. There is no dignity in Obergefell’s armed robbery. Whites were forced to ride hours on a bus just to go to school, while blacks were allowed to attend their neighborhood schools. Companies always say they want to hire blacks. Universities always say they want to enroll more blacks. Politicians always say we need to help more blacks. In over 50 years I have never heard one company say they want to hire more whites, one college say they want to enroll more whites, or one politician say we need to help more whites. In America, white people are second class citizens. That is what Ben Sasse wants.

    You’ve made some good points in your discussion. Your antebellum history and traditional anthropology go a long way towards an orderly definition of what it means to be a nation, and to establish that the concept of “nation” as a political order oriented to common authority is a post Enlightenment concept. Agreed. And modern day “propositional, credal” conservatism is proving itself incompetent to either reconcile the races, or defend the legacy we have inherited. That said: In challenging Sasse, you fail to give due regard for the equities that arise in favor of African Americans in virtue of their history: (1) African Americans today are the descendants of people who were transported here by force; (2) who had been enslaved for centuries; (3) who did productive work; (4) who inherited lawful citizenship regardless of their racial heterogeneity by force of the Fourteenth Amendment; (4) and whose ancestors were subsequently frozen out of participation in American life in myriad ways unlike any other race or ethnicity present in America today. Ergo: America at large owes blacks.

    I would much prefer an argument that all Americans, regardless of race or ethnicity, subsist within a covenant of citizenship within a web of laws. As such, it’s reasonable for white Americans to expect black Americans to participate within the framework of a common language, religious tradition, and respect for the rule of law. At any rate, black and white Americans are fused together in 400 years of national history, and neither of us are going anywhere.

    I submit that if you want to really be as honest to the American founders as you claim to be, you will admit that the religious roots of our contract far predominate over the racial roots. The Christian religion; the English language; common holidays; shared experiences of great wars—these are our mutual tapestry. And that’s why you need to lose all the accoutrements of European Nazism. It looks desperate, and it’s hollow and just wrong.

    • Yehudah Finkelstein

      “I submit that if you want to really be as honest to the American founders as you claim to be, you will admit that the religious roots of our contract far predominate over the racial roots.”

      This is poppycock. America was founded and created by White Anglo Saxon Protestants, later augmented and sustained by other Europeans. Blacks contributed menial labor. Spencer went over this point repeatedly in his essay.

      Christianity is dying in America anyways, so what unites now is our shared European ancestry.

      “And that’s why you need to lose all the accoutrements of European Nazism. It looks desperate, and it’s hollow and just wrong.”

      Yes, we know. Anyone who wants to preserve their ethnic heritage is an immoral Nazi. There is magic dirt in America, and Jigneesh from Utter Pradash understands Gettysburg as well as a tenth generation White American.

  • Conservatives/Republicans are either liars, or ignorant. The United States was founded as a White Nationalist federation – by and for a specific tribe of European people. Every single Founding Father was a White Nationalist, as was Abraham Lincoln and every President until maybe LBJ. Hell, JFK was a Hitler sympathizer.

    Spencer, this is what you are good at, and you are in the position to do exactly this – defend the White heritage of America from the cuck conservative liars. In this, the non-white are our allies, because they know that a) race is real b) race matters, and c) race is the foundation of identity.

    Sasse doesn’t even believe his own bullshit, he’s just reading the script he knows he’s supposed to because he’s a politician. That’s his job. But his triggering over being called a “goober conservative” shows where their weak spot is. “Race doesn’t matter” nonsense is just an expression of Sasse’s White privilege and the heartland grandmas that those lines appealed to at one time are not long for this world. The era of “race doesn’t matter” that was ushered in by the three Jewish TV networks in the 1960s is over – no one buys it anymore. Blacks don’t buy it, the Mestizos don’t buy it, the Orientals never bought it, and the White conservatives and liberals who used to buy it aren’t getting the positive feedback anymore so mouth the platitudes less.

    • Albionic American

      Sasse and similar goober conservatives need to learn that even if they disavow the Alt Right, the Alt Right most definitely sides with them by offering to protect the interests of white Americans and their white progeny.

      Otherwise, some day, the dwindling number of white American girls clutching their diaries will have to hide in secret rooms because they live in terror of the nonwhite hordes brought into this country to dispossess their people.

    Why is “racism” the greatest sin in the cultural Marxist egalitarian bible? Sure, it’s a comforting lie to believe only skin color distinguishes the races – then along come the mean old “racists” who refuse to believe. The whole myth is propped up by torrents of propaganda from a “divide and conquer” ruling (((minority))) which doesn’t want majority whitey feeling his oats enough to know what is going on. A Sen. Sasse type is a devout believer in the secular anti-racist religion. Being a never-Trumper, he probably could see Trump’s very own racism when a 70 yr. old white guy popped a 30 yr. old black for disrupting a Trump rally. Sen Sasse feels bad that, as a somewhat loyal Republican, he can’t come out each day and vomit on Trump like his guideposts in the (((mainstream media))) do. So, short of doing that, to reinforce his anti-racist credentials, he picks on Richard Spencer – for that he is a hero to the choir.

      What needs to be rebutted? That Spencer lives in his mother’s basement? Sasse’s tweets are so pitiful they require that he be made fun of, not “rebutted.”

  • Diversity Heretic

    Excellent article! Sasse’s shrillness rather leads me to believe that he is harboring doubts about the whole enterprise, doubts that he dare not admit even to himself. He’s intelligent enough to see that it’s not really working, but emotionally unable to face what his intellect tells him is happening.

    The NFL “kneeling” business is more important than it might first seem. If the most pampered and revered Negroes in America will no longer respect its traditions, even to the extent of just standing while the flag is being presented and the national anthem played, then they obviously have no loyalty to the United States. If the reports about Oakland players allowing sacks and dropping passes are true, they may have no loyalty to their teams either. Perhaps these attitudes are historically justified. But white Americans have got to start asking: “If Negroes have no loyalty to America, then should we have any loyalty to them? Should we consider them to be countrymen at all? And if they are not, how can we achieve an equitable separation?”

    Sasse’s worldview doesn’t factor in any accurate understanding of human biology or evolution. you might call him a “Lysenko conservative”. I suspect he thinks IQ differences are all environmental. worse than that he doesn’t understand the value of in group preference. if all the other groups in the world are co-operating for there advantage and your promoting some cultural Marxist philosophy for your group only its not hard to see how thats going to end up. its an evolutionary dead end. regarding his “intelligence” – as jared says you need to be intelligent to convince yourself races dont exist. there is evidence to say a lot of in group preference is genetic, right down to preferring a partner more similar genetically to you. this tells you in-group preference must have been historically important for our survival. the jews have even incorporated it into there religion and state. low IQ people tend to act more on instinct than rationalisation which is why you tend to see higher in-group preference among blacks. Sasses world view is naive and ill informed. he needs to go live in Africa for a few years to get a better understanding of the real world.

  • Dissident5

    A good but rather mild article. I was surprised when it came to an end half-finished, neglecting to go on to examine and describe the dangerous and genocidal power structure Mr Sasse childishly plays in and of which he is innocently unaware, nor exposes the hidden hand behind America’s demise and the rise of modern racial antipathies and the sugar-candy laced with arsenic ideas Mr Sasse presents. In short it leaves out the most significant factor in the collapse of America, the JQ. It was not the inferiority complex of southern Europeans which destroyed America, even if many became useful tools to do so, it was the Jews, and Sasse is as much a slave of the Jews as were the slaves they imported into the nation and were the biggest holders and sellers of.

    “Sen. Sasse did not say he would leave the party if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee,” Wegmann said in the statement. “He said he would not vote for Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. He said that if the
    Republican Party embraces the identity politics of David Duke and Donald Trump, he would leave that party. In this, he agrees with (House Speaker Paul Ryan) who said today that the party of Lincoln ‘does not
    prey on people’s prejudices.’ ”

    Sasse is unaware of the vulnerability of his own position because he has been protected throughout his life by money. He has never done a “proper” job and is accustomed to wielding power and influence but well away from the white working class who are actually entitled to determine the direction of America. He’s an excellent example of the glossy “well qualified” traitor who has to be defeated if identitarian politics is to prevail. His plausibility exemplifies one of our biggest problems.

    I don’t think a weak soy boy like you even remotely understands the mind of a person beyond the 1990s. The founders would have spit on you and you would have most likely died in a duel by now and those who fought in the great war didn’t have such nice view of race mixing.

  • Ed Edgerton

    Race is about more than just superficial characteristics.

    Given that whites are being demographically dispossessed everywhere (outside of Eastern Europe), they can’t afford to keep relying on race-neutral principles.Sasse’s approach has been tried for decades. The results speak for themselves. Cuckservatism amounts to controlled opposition. Cuckservative politicians rely on whites for votes but let them down when it counts, e.g., in opposing nonwhite immigration.

  • Lurker

    Sasse is obviously being groomed to be the NeverTrump goober in 2024. I imagine ziocons like Ben (((Shapiro))) and Will (((Kristol))) singing his praises while Sheldon (((Adelson))) spends millions to push him down the throats of low-IQ Republicans during the primary.

    Politicians like Ben Sasse are worse than useless. They epitomize why the GOP loses nearly every battle and achieves nothing, even when they have the Presidency, majorities in both houses of Congress, and most of the governorships and statehouses.

    They betray their own voters – Conservative Votes, Liberal Victories . The GOP is a controlled opposition.

    They are useless at opposing the third-world invasion. They are anti-Russia, instead.

    Aside from tax-cuts, their main interest is to sabotage White Nationalism. Then the globalists will reward them with money.

    It’s all Russia’s fault – the Cucks and Neocons want war with Russia, to distract and entertain the masses, while they bring in millions from the third world.

    What a goober.

    I joined the Mormon Latter Day Saints Church 20 years ago, because I just wanted to be in some “Christian” church where it was OK to be a straight White American guy. LDS has a great history, also lots of good things now – good male female relations. But the LDS Mormons are packed with these goobers. LDS Mormons were once White racialists, not any more.

    My friend and LDS Bishop from San Diego has been sent to the Congo Black Africa to convert and bring back all the Black Africans to…. probably not Provo Utah, more like my Chicago.

    With these “America is for freedom and the Constitution, as long as everyone converts to Conservative Christianity” types – don’t try to reason with them, just out them as goobers. Get to know some street Black folks and have them terrorize the goobers.

    Have the Black gang bangers ring their perfect suburban goober homes door bells and ask to be welcomed inside, stay over night in a slumber party with the goobers’ wife and teen age daughters.

    These goobers are so much the same as the 1990s “Promise Keepers” that packed college football stadiums to get White Christian men to cry together and confess that they were racist and not good husbands and fathers.

    This whole Promise Keeper thing was the idea of the mud shark coal burning daughter of the University of Colorado Football coach who was F*#($*# the Black CU football players.

    I’m not sure what goes through Sasse’s mind. I assume all the politicians’ books are ghost-written. Sasse is not from truecon origins, as he once advocated universal health care and his handlers had to quash all reference to it in his Senate race. All I really know is that the neocons had a keen interest in Sasse, and neoconservatism is a pedo movement (more precisely, where the college boy becomes an eromenos). Sasse was in Dennis Hastert’s circles. Perhaps what really offends Sasse is that you are telling him who he shouldn’t have f**cked. Racism and anti-immigration go against these people’s primal sexual interests.

Does this expose the little white lies of the alt-right, or better yet, the hypocracy? He, after all, was born, raised and continues to live in homogeneous conditions.
