The Practical Wisdom of Robert Whitaker

This piece is written by Dave. It was an email from him regarding the importance of the archive site we are building of Bob’s work. I asked his permission to share this on BUGS, as it is great insight. Thanks, Dave! (More on the new archive site soon.)

I will tell you why I think Robert Whitaker’s writings are important.

First, some digression:

I am unique in that I come from a family were everybody marries late. I am no exception. For example, I am 67 years old, I married for the first time in my mid-fifties, and I now have a five year old child.

My whole family has been like that for generations. My paternal grandfather was born in 1883 and I knew him well into my teens. He died in the late 1960s in a world he could not recognize. My maternal grandfather, born in 1890, grew up in Virginia among aging Confederate Civil War veterans who he came to know well.

My grandfather told me when I was a child: “You cannot understand American history if you do not understand that the wrong side won the Civil War.”

You see, he had the actual face-to-face first person testimony of the Confederate veterans who fought the Civil War, so he knew what the Civil War was really about. It was an assault of European Imperialism on the American people. The Confederate veterans of the Civil War clearly understood it as such. The Union veterans, in contrast, were victims of
the propaganda of European Imperialism (sound familiar?).

This brings us to the unique importance of Robert Whitaker. Robert Whitaker understood that the memory that constitutes real history only lasts for three generations, and this is because the influence of face-to-face first person testimony only lasts three generations. Death erases accurate memory beyond three generations because you can only interface with three generations (normally) within one lifetime and therefore you only get three generations of first person testimony told face-to-face.

It is death that gives propaganda its opportunity. You see, the Civil War was real to my grandfather, even though he wasn’t born until 1890, because he had access to the face-to-face first person testimony of those that actually fought it.

I am in a similar position regarding WWI and WWII. Even though I was not born until the 1950’s because my grandfather, who I knew well, was in WWI and because my father, who I knew well, was in WWII, those wars are real to me. This is the influence of face-to-face first person testimony. Because of this, I know things that students of written histories (propaganda histories) cannot know.

For example, my father was in the front line British and American assault forces that stopped the German and Dutch advance on Antwerp on News Years Day in 1945 (the last high causality WWI style battle that British and Americans were ever in). They then carried out the recapture of the Ardennes, penetrated the Siegfried Line, took the Rhineland, and ended up in warehouses on the Elbe River in May of 1945 awaiting the conclusion of the Battle of Berlin.

If you said to my father, “The British and American allies won the War in Europe,” my father would have rolled his eyes. Those British and American soldiers that actually carried out the conclusion of World War II in Belgium and West Germany knew that the actual outcome was a defeat, not a victory. It is pure propaganda that the British and American
allies “won the War in Europe.” The soldiers that actually fought that war knew it was not true. Leaving half of Germany and all of Central
Europe in the hands of the Communists was not a victory, it was a defeat, and that is how THOSE SOLDIERS perceived it.

You will hardly ever hear that told in any written history (propaganda history) of WWII.

Robert Whitaker clearly understood the difference between real history and myth. He was unique in this. He understood the role of face-to-face first person testimony and how and why real history dies within a three generation time frame. He understood clearly HOW propaganda finds its opportunity.

And this brings us to Robert Whitaker’s other great insight, and that is the role of slogans in politics. I never understood big league politics until I began to study Robert Whitaker. I never understood that big league politics is really about slogans and that there is nothing more important than finding effective and durable slogans. Effective slogans put paid to fake history. Robert Whitaker taught me that if you want to defeat fake history, (fake history being an artifact of the role of death in human life), you must find effective slogans.

That insight is pure genius. Robert Whitaker was a genius, a practical genius, and that is WHY it is important to preserve Robert Whitaker’s writings.

Asgardian’s Question

Written by Bob Whitaker. Originally posted August 23rd, 2013 – http://www.whitakeronline.org/blog/2013/08/23/asgardians-question/

ASGARDIAN ASKS:

“Anyone else find it difficult to transition from an argumentative/dissident role to a cooperative/leadership role? That’s a bad way to phrase it but what I mean is, getting into debates with anti-Whites is one thing. Dealing with Normal Whites who are slowllllyyyy becoming pro-White is another.”

“Or so it seems to me. Are the people who spark social change the same ones who go on to lead after the change?”

BOB’S ANSWER:

Huey Long was asked what Political Leadership is, and he gave a frank and accurate reply:

“You find out the direction everybody is going and you run out front.”

This is where Mantra Thinking comes in. Instead of using Long’s quote to look smart and yell about what fakes politicians are, I THOUGHT about this statement. While others were Looking Smart, I was thinking.

What did Long’s statement and the reality it reflected mean to a young man who was hungry for POWER instead of public office?

To others Long’s statement was a confirmation of their own opinion of politicians, insincere and all that crap.

To me, it meant that politicians give up real power to be Leaders. What mattered to me was not who walked in front but why the crowd was marching in that direction in the first place.

THAT is POWER.

Sam Adams exercised POWER. He was almost forgotten as his cousin rose to the presidency.

Thomas Paine made the Revolution in POWER terms. Washington came as a Name and took over.

A sane person wants to be Presidents Washington and Adams. I decided to be Thomas Paine and Sam Adams.

Asgardian’s question is right on target for BUGS. We are making the underlying revolution.

But sometimes the underlying revolution involves questions so hot that the Names cannot take them up. That’s when you get upstarts like Lenin and Hitler taking power themselves.

Russia and Germany would have been lottery lucky if there had been a group like BUGS instead of Hitler or Lenin.

BUGS makes this both our argument and our program. As our memes take root, you can FEEL the white resentment growing. As an argument,  we warn anti-whites that, if no one is allowed to object to white genocide, this sentiment can explode under them.

All those people they silenced by screaming Nazi can end up just that. That is our argument.

Now, let’s remember that the reason Mantra arguments WORK is because they are simply TRUE. If no Name wants the leadership, Ole Bob knows how to take the lead, and he got paid by leaders to do just that.

I do not want to interrupt what we are doing now to theorize about the future. That seems to be about all people outside BUGS ever do. If you read me carefully, you will find yourself surprising yourself by knowing what to do next. If you have been inside as I have, what impresses you is how practical our discussions have become.

Your approach NOW would make pros in DC.

The Left-Right Code

Left-right is the establishment’s code for the race war that is growing.

Todays’ Republicans are the EXACT equivalent of the Whig Party that died in the 1850s.

It would not face the issue of the EXPANSION — NOT the existence — of slavery. The Republican Party completely replaced it almost overnight.

If you read the Republican platform, they bent over backwards insisting that the slave states had a right to their slaves. But, unlike the Whigs, they stood absoltely against the admission of any more slave states.

The Republican Party was formed in 1854 and it controlled the House of Representatives in 1855.

Let’s bring this up to date.

Democrats are dead right. At this moment the Republicans have a solidly white consituency and it gets whiter at every election.

Even as the white proportion of the electorate has shrunk, Republicans have gone from a minority to a majority.

Anyone who reads the history of the 1850s will wonder what the Whigs were DOING.

Anyone reading the history of our time will wonder what the Republicans were DOING.

The only group that took up the real issue before 1854 was the tiny Free Soil Party. It split from the tiny Liberty Party dedicated to abolition. The biggest weapon against the Free Soil Party was the word “Abolitionist!” just as the same effect is obtained today by calling us “Racist!”

We help out by ACTING like a tiny minority, aiming at a tiny split-off from the melting pot. We call that white nationalism.

But this does nothing about the threat more and more people every day see against our entire race.

We must insist on the right of our whole race to EXIST.

We must take the leadership in something that is in everyone’s minds, just as stopping the EXTENSION of slavery was in everybody’s mind in the 1850s. We must get off the defensive.

Every day the feeling that every white country is being overrun is growing.

Back in the 1850s this obvious winning position was stopped by screams of Abolitionism. Today the obvious winning position is stopped by cries of “Racism.”

The group that takes a solid and defiant position on the REAL issue, and on nothing else, is poised to win.

In 1852 there was no free soil major party. By 1855 it organized the House.

The difference was that someone finally took the stand, AND TOOK IT CLEARLY.

The next civil war will begin just as the last one did. A party will make a reasonable stand and those who cannot bear it will secede. THEY will turn it from a reasonable political strategy into a revolution.

The rioting minorities will turn OUR reasonable stance into a revolution.

But first we have to make a stand.

Swedish minister criticizes Hungary’s failure to support White Genocide in Europe — compares Hungary’s support of native Hungarian families to 1930s Germany

Originally posted by Deprogrammer at Fight White Genocide February 20, 2019.

Decades before the U.S. government did the same, the German government during the 1930s launched a strong anti-smoking campaign.

Do you support government efforts to reduce smoking today? Nazi! Nazi! Nazi!

Do you want to see measures taken to protect the health and well-being of your race today? Nazi! Nazi! Nazi! If you’re white of course. If you’re non-white and care about the health and well-being of your race, then bask happily in the approval of both liberals and respectable conservatives everywhere.

White self-hatred is SICK!!!

But if you’re white and don’t display hate for your race? Nazi! Nazi! Nazi!

If you’re white and don’t support White Genocide by mass third world immigration and forced integration/assimilation in EVERY white country and ONLY in white countries, you’re a Nazi!

When anti-whites call you “Nazi” because you don’t support White Genocide, then for the benefit of whites who are observing, reply with this truth:

“‘Nazi’ is an anti-white slur that anti-whites hide behind while carrying out White Genocide.”

Not only does that bring the topic back to White Genocide, it also helps spread the previously absent term “anti-white.”

The charge of “Nazi” is one of several that rely on relentless anti-white presentations of history by our schools and media that teach whites to hate themselves and to support White Genocide.

When anti-whites use history to justify White Genocide, reply with this truth, for the benefit of whites who are watching:

“You’re justifying genocide. Nothing justifies genocide.”

We don’t need to become scholars and harangue our white audiences with critiques of anti-whites’ versions of history (why would we expect an audience ignorant of the facts to accept our account rather than our enemy’s?) — that just leads to endless argument. But an audience that knows nothing does know that nothing justifies genocide. Our job is to show, to all whites who are watching, that the anti-white does in fact support White Genocide, whatever the anti-white’s justification for White Genocide is. Nothing justifies genocide.

Always bring it back to White Genocide!

~~~

Okay, let’s get to the news item this article is supposed to be about, which in addition to showing how anti-whites use the Nazi narrative to justify White Genocide, also shows what a government that cares about its people, as Viktor Orban’s government in Hungary does, can actually do to maintain that people.

In April 2018, the day before he was reelected Prime Minister of Hungary by a large margin, Viktor Orban was interviewed by the Hungarian daily Magyar Idők:

…the defence of the country and the fight against migration form the core of our message.

“…we will maintain our current standpoint and declare that Hungary belongs to the Hungarian people, and that we alone have the authority to decide whom we wish to live alongside. In other words, whether or not we will be an immigrant country.”

“As Prime Minister of Hungary I built the border fence, defended the border and in Brussels rejected the resettlement of immigrants.But the danger has not yet passed: it is still hammering on our door. Tomorrow we must decide on Hungary’s next few decades; and if we make a mistake, we will not be able to correct it later.”

George Sorosfinances a network. This network has enormous influence among Brussels [i.e. European Union] decision-makers. He also finances a great many media outlets and organisations, and these work in coordination to urge for policies throughout Europe which would facilitate and increase immigration…opposition politicians accept funding from George Soros, who employs thousands of people in Hungary and spends millions of dollars on shaping Hungarian politics.”

Hungary’s border barriers have been very successful in keeping illegal aliens out of Hungary.

Now the current news:

In his State of the Nation Speech on February 10, 2019 Hungary’s PM Viktor Orban announced provisions of a new Family Plan that will greatly incentivize an increase in native Hungarian children.

“This is Hungary’s answer to challenges, rather than immigration,” and “The target countries for migrants are witnessing the emergence of a Christian-Muslim world with a shrinking rate of Christians. But we, central Europeans, still have a future of our own.”

Orban announces major family protection package

Here are some of the new provisions (“HUF” seems to be in effect equivalent to the Hungarian unit of currency, the forint, and 1 forint = .0036 dollars, so 1 million forints = $3,600. Cost of living in Hungary is considerably lower than in the U.S.):

Every woman under the age of forty who gets married for the first time will be eligible for a preferential loan of up to HUF 10 million…If a third child is born, the remaining debt will be cancelled in its entirety.

From now on the Government will provide this relief of one million forints when a second child is born, a further HUF four million for the birth of a third child, and one million forints after the birth of every subsequent child.

Women who have given birth to and raised four or more children will be exempt from personal income tax for the rest of their lives

The Government will provide families raising at least three children with a non-repayable grant of HUF 2.5 million for the purchase of new cars with at least seven seats.

Those are lifted from the Hungarian government’s summary in English of Orban’s State of the Nation speech, and the whole summary is very worth reading:

Hungarians once again have confidence in their future

Here’s Orban’s speech in its entirety if we have any readers of Hungarian:

Discours de M. Viktor Orbán, premier ministre de Hongrie, sur l’état de la Nation

 

Annika Strandhall, the Social Democratic minister for social affairs in far away Sweden, for some reason felt impelled to respond to the speech, and took out her “Nazi! Nazi! Nazi!” club and bashed Orban over the head with it.

Translation of tweet (First two sentences are from Microsoft twitter translation, the third from The Local):

“What is happening in Hungary is alarming. Now, Orban wants more ‘genuine’ Hungarian children to be born.This kind of policy reeks of the 1930s and will harm the autonomy for which women have struggled for decades”

Reader, you may have noticed that the white world is dividing into two parts, pro-whites like Viktor Orban who oppose white genocide, and anti-whites like Annika Strandhall who support white genocide.

Pro-whites oppose White Genocide, anti-whites support White Genocide.

Please spread that truth.

Honestly, folks, we occasionally do the news mainly in hopes of getting your attention for a moment to encourage you to help us hammer the fact of White Genocide into the public domain:

But Viktor Orban, like Matteo Salvini in Italy, does deserve our notice and gratitude, and both of those gentlemen are good for our morale.

But why indeed does a minister in Sweden feel it necessary to bash the Prime Minister of Hungary with her “Nazi! Nazi! Nazi!” club for not opening Hungary’s borders to “diversity”?

Because anti-whites intend no country, no town, no school, no organization to remain white. Spread that truth:

“Diversity” means chasing down the last white person.

Real billboard – click on it.

Childhood’s End

Written by Bob Whitaker February 13th, 2009 – http://www.whitakeronline.org/blog/2009/02/13/childhoods-end/

There is a subtext to BUGS: We see those outside of this group as somewhat childish. They are childish when it comes to power propaganda. You FEEL this so I think you will recognize it when I explain it.

A child sees a house or a car but they are part of the child’s landscape. It no more occurs to that toddler that that house or car was BUILT than it does that the ground under it was built.

Simmons and Lords Nelson were glorying in the fact that “anti-white” is FINALLY being repeated a lot on the web. No one outside of BUGS would even NOTICE that. Others in the movement look to the days of the torchlight parades in the past. Like children they just assume that those Great Victories just APPEARED, like houses to do to tots.

No tot can see how important it is to see to the clearing of the ground, the getting of materials, and, before all that, the drawing of the PLAN.

And no tot can build a house.

No tot can imagine that, before the bricks, before the foundation, before clearing the ground, there is a DECISION to build a house. To a child, the house was just MEANT to be there, like that hill over there.

Most people in our movement look for a spontaneous torchlight victory parade. They demand that everybody read and agree with My Awakening or other books.

But they do not consider how we will get people to begin to be INTERESTED in those books.

We who see the critical nature of clearing the ground with the Mantra and “anti-white” can only celebrate to each other. Who ever celebrated when the ground-clearing was being done?

If we are going to fight this battle and build this house, we had damned well better begin to see to its foundations as LN and Simmons doFacebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail
