Hey There Everyone, A Friend Of Mine David Rocket,

who occasionally writes for the great website Orthodox Reform Bridge shared with me a wonderful interview on Fox News with a Professor Carol Swain of Vanderbilt University in the aftermath of the Charlottesville Tragedy. Professor Swain is the author of the book The New White Nationalism in America. It was published back in 2002. So she’s way ahead of the curve in all of us, and she made a fascinating argument that I think dovetails with what I argued in an earlier video, and she went on and proposed a solution to our current racial crisis that I wanted to comment on as well First, she noticed that the new white nationalism are the Alt-right as it’s commonly referred to today is different than the white nationalists of the past. Those who understood white people to be biologically genetically intellectually superior.

Non-Whites This Would Be The White

nationalism of the UK or a white supremacist. The marked the kind of social Darwinism so characteristic of the first half of the 20th century. The new white nationalists are motivated by something entirely different and that they’re not interested so much in biological or genetic differentiation. Instead they’re making the case that the current project of multiculturalism is unfairly and arbitrarily discriminating against white people and white interests on behalf of non-white constituents who are whose interests are taking a priority in terms of national policy. In other words, if we’re a society that’s built upon the political assertion that black people have political interests and Hispanics have interests and Asians have interests and Latinas and then it only logically follows that white people have interest too and the new white nationalists are making the argument that the notion of civil rights must.

Extend To Them As Well, But In

all too many cases it doesn’t so Professor Swain argues that this concern and does in fact resonate with the wider white population now. Swain particularly denounces the way the mainstream secular corporatists media’s betraying Charlottesville by just coming out and painting everyone at the rally at least on the pro-confederate side is all racists and white supremacist and bigots. It’s not only false, but it’s also ridiculously counterproductive because it in effect shuts down any possibilities meaningful dialogue between different sides of the multicultural divide. She absolutely affirmed that there are black nationalists and white nationalists and Latino nationalists, and that President Trump was absolutely correct. When he said that there were many adverse forces involved and is embedded in each one of these ethnic nationalist loyalties.

It Was Not Just The False

of white nationalists who the media is equated with. Supremacist and this this was of course our argument in an earlier video responding to Charlottesville. Multicultural societies are by and large, transforming more and more and highly tribe alized and ethnically nationalistic societies and this is because multicultural societies require the secular virtue of Tolerance a mutual respect for other cultures and racial differences but what happens then when secular tolerance is reinterpreted by some as a social mechanism that however, inadvertent ly ends up maintaining and perpetuating racial discrimination and bigotry. What happens when racism is redefined as the deliberate disenfranchisement of some people groups from political power and influence what happens to tolerance? Then well becomes our symbol. It dies it withers away since it’s seen as itself a tool of political oppression and that’s what we’re seeing today primarily with something like the black lives matter movement and its proponents now.

At The End Of The Interview, Professor

Swain provided a Rohn solution to our current racial Christ. She argued that if we want to come together, we’re going to have to move away from identity politics, what we called emancipatory politics. In our last video, we’re going to have to move away from identity, politics and multiculturalism and instead focus on the American national identity that’s the only way we’re going to be able to move beyond this. In other words, we’re going to have to move away. From fostering all of these competing and contradictory ethnic nationalisms and embrace collectively what we call a civic nationalism Now? This is in fact what Trump has been arguing over the last couple of years from from a Civic nationalist perspective.

The Nation Is A Race To Be

American is to belong to a race of people. In this sense, Trump speaks to whites, blacks, Hispanics, Asians Latinos as Americans if you listen or read his speeches the rhetoric of emancipatory politics, multiculturalism, which involves concerns over racial discrimination, racial prejudice, disenfranchisement. It’s replaced with a message targeting economic discrimination as a result of unfair globalist trade deals. Trump focuses on employment disenfranchisement in the disappearance of industrial and manufacturing jobs to a globalised division of labor and he opposes pay prejudice in the driving down of wages due to mass unfettered illegal immigration. You see Trump deals with race.

But From A Very Different Vantage Point Than

I think anyone in the archaic corporatist media can understand now I offered my own solution all this which is rooted in the distinctively Christian vision of race. In other words, scholars noticed that one of the central characteristics of early Christian identity formation was the way in which Christians define themselves as a new race. So you have someone like Arista T’s of Athens writing around 120 UK. He writes a letter to the Roman Emperor that explains them what this new religion of Christians was all about and the way Arista T’s explained it was just fascinating. He in effect argued that Christians were a new race of people indeed the ideal race one that loves God loves neighbor that seeks the Peace of the Roman Empire, particularly embodied by prayers on behalf of the Emperor, not political sedition which.

Is Of Course What The Ember

was worried about UK T’s in effect, argues that Christians are the ideal citizens for any king or any Emperor and I argue that this is in fact the way out of this mess. The intentional embracing of a renewed vision of Christian race, but as Arista T’s argued this distinctively Christian racial vision is not separated or amputated from a distinctively Christian Civic or national vision. In fact, one of the arguments that’s out there is that the Civic National realignments that accompanied the Protestant Reformation were inspired by a rediscovery of biblical nationalism. This has been particularly the argument of historian Diana Applebaum, who observes that the nation-state project of the 16th and 17th centuries, of which we are still the beneficiaries was deeply inspired by what she calls the biblical narrative of nationhood Christians inspired by the Reformation not only rediscovered. Bible but in doing so rediscovered a vision of the world arranged according to Kindred‘s, tongues, lands, nations and so the Biblical world is imagined is made up of a number of sovereign and equal nations that are then reinterpret in light of the redemptive covenant vision of Israel Now The world can be seen as comprised potentially of innumerable new Israel‘s and faithfulness to God and his redemption in Christ.

This Is What Applebaum Calls The

biblical model of nationhood. So when Professor Swaying argues that the answer to our current racial crisis is a reimbursement of Civic nationalism as over and against all the various conflicting ethnic nationalisms that’s not substantially different from what I argued in my previous video. In terms of the re-embrace Avakian vision of a unified race redeemed in Christ. We have to remember that the entire Westphalian order that replaced Christendom Krishna being. rule of Europe by Pope and Holy Roman Emperor that Westphalian order equated religious identity with national identity.

I Dont Know How Many Of

you are familiar with the phrase quiesce regio UK religio, but it basically means the Latin phrase that means whose religion whose region his religion, In other words, as part of the treaties that ended the 30 Years War princes basically agreed that their regions that they had jurisdiction over would adopt the religion of the Prince of the Prince with Catholic, then it would be a Catholic Kingdom or region. If the magistrate was Lutheran, then the region would be governed by Lutheran norms and so on so what we have to understand is that religious identity and national identity have historically been inseparable. This whole notion of the separation between church and state as it’s been practiced in the latter half of the of. The 20th centuries really absolutely unheard of indeed unfathomable, So I believe that Professor Swain and I really think the same thing but from two different vantage points, she’s focused on the civic nationalism as overt against ethnic nationalism.

Im Focused On The Religious Identity That Would

serve to unify that civic nationalism under one God one nation redeemed in Christ, which as this channel is dedicated to tracking and analyzing is in fact happening right now throughout the world in Central and Eastern, Europe and Russia and Africa and Samoa. More and more nations are deliberately and intentionally and explicitly re-embrace in Christianity as a single sacred unifying force in their national identities and so as I see it it’s only then that we’re going to see our current racial crisis Healed Since this is of course the whole rationale for a Christian vision of life, the redemptive healing. The totality the cosmos from the transformative life death and resurrection Christ, a new civic nationalism rooted in a common Christian racial identity is the hope of our nation and I would argue indeed of the whole world God bless.
