Hoffer’s — and My Definition of “American”

Posted by Bob on February 17th, 2012 under Coaching Session

Eric Hoffer, whose short biography is worth reading, defined the term “American” as I use it. He was a real worker, a longshoreman on the docks, and went never went to school until he was signed on as a full professor temporarily.

Hoffer wrote his first book, The True Believer, when he was 49.

Considering himself entirely American, he spent his life among American working people and reading widely. He never left the United States once. He said he was on the bridge across to Mexico, smelled the rot, and came back before he reached the Mexican side.

He defined the Kennedys, for example, as Europeans. Like me, he defined all of what we would call the blue states as European. He did not define what he meant, it was a matter of gut feel which was obviously shared by his millions of readers.

A New Englander or a San Franciscan would feel right at home in a European or Canadian voting booth.

Like Mantra Thinking, Hoffer’s “American” is in a constant process of identification. So my mind makes stabs at partial explanations.

One difference, vague as it is, between an American and a European strikes me as what might be called A Search for Authority.

Englishmen probably understand more than Americans when I describe professors as merely the priesthood of Political Correctness. The disastrous experiment with socialism Britain chose at the end of World War II made England by the late 50s economically The Sick Man of Europe. Huge numbers of British workmen were going to Germany to earn double the wages they got in England, and to pay less taxes on them.

After 1945, a huge part of Britain stopped looking to Tradition and the Uppah Clahss. But they substituted professors for them, “degreed” persons, especially from the Labor Party’s London School of Economics. Under the semi-Marxist regime, professors were quoted AND OBEYED by the left the way clergy had once been in the Middle Ages.

Americans reject authority, and they find ways to do it. The Bible, for example, allows Americans to contradict the “eggheads.” and the Bible is as certain to say what they want to believe as Political Correctness and the Rule of the Intellectuals always turns out to be what the professors want to believe.

But the Bible is interpreted by Americans in the teeth of the professors. It always has been.

It is generally known that Americans tend to be both more religious and more anti-clerical than Europeans. We do not respect the word of the clerics, the Authority, but Europeans tend to search for living authorities.

In fact, Europeans really look for their living authorities in America. No one could imagine a Frenchman saying that there is no such thing as a French culture. They were boring about it. But the minute “multiculture” became a Harvard and New York credo, centuries of monomaniacal obsession in Paris with “French Culture” simply evaporated.

So, like Hoffer, I simply discuss the phenomenon of “American” versus “European” instead of trying to define it. Language, as Webster said, is usage. Definition is simply a means of describing usage.

    Since it is not Politically Correct to vilify Negroes, the U.S. Media vilifies Rural WHITES instead. I found a trailor for this anti–White movie on Youtube!

    There is a real hatred of Americans by Mommy Prof’s puppets, especially the ones in the USA. They mock, villify and have complete contempt for Americans.

    They have this delusion that anyone who does not submit to Mommy Prof and instead follows their own gut is just plain dumb. They however are truly intelligent and thinking becuase they have replaced their brain with Mommy’s dictates.

    “A New Englander or a San Franciscan would feel right at home in a European or Canadian voting booth.”

    Europe has numerous pro-White parties with elected members. In Canada the Ontario landowners association is a force to be reckoned with, they got Randy Hillier elected, very un-PC, a abashed rural landowners activist. They also conducted a coup and wrested a nomination from the establishment candidate and got another of their guys elected.

    In the USA I don’t see their being that much more political rebellion on average.

    The USA isn’t holy ground where the men are strong and brave and Europe and Canada aren’t nations of lemmings.

    My gut feeling is that our elite and the few bullies they can muster amongst the anti-whites are basically isolated.

    Any thread on any site not strictly moderated quickly fills up people who are just sick and tired of the anti-White nonsense.

    What moral authority that is mustered by anyone and that is offered for public acceptance ironically must come from the Respectable conservatives or thru them. This paragraph sounds convuluted but remember the Respectable conservatives exist to legitimize the left. Well folks the left is a worn out crackhead. Remember OWS?

    So the next big hit of anti-White hysteria will come when Romney is told by the crackheads to scold whites.

    That is BUGs’ ticket to the big time.

      The biggest mistake pro-White can make it trying to get concessions from the anti-White establishment or trying to do minor things. That only serves to legitimize the respecticons and stabilize the anti-White system.

      For instance, the respecticons in Canada come out with these policies to “crack down on bogus refugees” and all the Whites cheer and praise the respecticons. They are placated thinking the respecticons are a real opposition. Meanwhile the program of genocide of our race continues at full steam.

      We need a clean break from all these sycophantic losers, race traitors and anti-White psychopaths.
