This is the sort of stuff I’m seeing more and more these days almost every time you defend nationalism or people who are nationalists. Or not even defend, just talk about them without straight pissing on them and people immediately jump to conclusion you must be a racist Nazi if you’re not actively pissing on them.
People have this fixed idea that nationalism is national socialism aka Nationalsozialismus or in short Nazism. Ok. But is it really in the same form as it used to be?
Sure, you have real Nazis, the ones who still praise Hitler and sleep with Mein Kampf under their pillow, with Swastikas tattooed on their forehead and Nazi saluting around (fun fact, Bellamy salute was used in late 19 century America before Nazi Germany and resembles almost identical hand gesture) attacking black people and Jews. That’s the national socialism of the 1940’s Germany…
What most people who call themselves nationalist today align themselves with? Well, the people I’ve seen and who are being called “a fucking nazi”, they mostly believe that people of own country, own nation should always come first, get help by the government first and they believe in preservation of own nation, own identity, own traditions and this is especially predominant in Europe where we have vastly different nations, languages, traditions, the unique identities etc. Some are also vocal how whites shouldn’t be treated like shit just because they are white and that’s inherently bad because of white supremacists and slavery, but that varies between nationalists. Generally I support their belief, because the amount of dumb white motherfuckers shitting on their own race is just astounding these days. I’m Caucasian and I absolutely hate it when idiots attack us solely for being “white” and try to associate us with white supremacists and slavery based on that. I never owned slaves, my parents never owned them, my grandparents never owned them, my grand grandparents never owned them and we never owned them for as far as our known family tree goes in the past. Treating me like shit just for being “white” is just as racists as treating blacks like shit because of their skin color. Racism doesn’t have one side that’s always the good one. All racism is bad and it doesn’t matter from who it comes. Even blacks can be racists, they don’t get the immunity card for what happened to them in the past. And no one ever should. Just to get that part out of the way because people with agenda tend to twist these words and turn them into white supremacists bullshit.
I come from Slovenia, small country in Europe and while I’m not a fan of our traditional music, our poetry and literature or some traditions, I prefer English over my own language, but I want to preserve them because they are our unique identity, it represents us as a nation. I guess that makes me a nationalist then, right?
And I don’t limit myself to “Uh oh, you must be white and born in Slovenia to belong to our nation”. If you come to my country legally, you try very hard to learn our rather difficult language, you try your best to integrate into our society, you get a job, obey our laws, stay out of trouble and don’t do anything criminal, you respect and follow our traditions, then you’re as much of a fellow countrymen as anyone else born here. It doesn’t matter if you’re of Germanic, Norse, Arabic, Asian, American or African origin, it doesn’t matter of what race you are even. Be good and treat us with respect and we’ll treat you the same back.
But come to my country illegally, then try to extort welfare from us, try to forcefully spread your whatever religion, do criminal shit all the time and try to convert our country into shithole you came from and sure as hell I don’t fucking want you here.
That’s the kind of nationalism I’m advocating for. But calling me a white supremacist or a Nazi for this, then you can fuck off this very moment. And this is what people are doing. They don’t want to even hear what you have to say, they’ll just relentlessly attack and try to silence you because they think they can just call everyone “a Nazi” and no one can say anything back afterwards. It worked for a while, but they were throwing word “Nazi” around so much it basically lost its meaning entirely. If everyone is a Nazi, then no one really is in the end. They live in this bubble of self righteousness and fight against the Nazis they themselves start to behave like the Nazis of the 1940’s Germany. But they are too dumb to even notice it unfortunately.
So, yeah, I can proudly say I’m a nationalist then because I believe in what I wrote above. Call me a Nazi all you want, but I know what I am and what I stand by. You can be a nationalist and not be a racist white supremacist. But for some people this is a very hard concept to grasp and they’ll just continue to bark with their fucking Hitler and Nazis bullshit. This ain’t the 1940’s anymore, this is 2019. Things have changed and so have definitions of words and mindsets. Being a nationalist today doesn’t have much to do with being a nationalist socialist in Germany almost a century ago, so stop attacking people like sperging lunatics just because they want to see their nation and its identity preserved and not absorbed into a globalist blob without any identity.
