Pat Buchanan and White America

The thing about Pat Buchanan is that he's a tribalist.  And I mean that as a compliment.  All human beings, without exception, are tribal — they belong either to tribes, or to supertribes, like ethnic groups, races, or nations.  Tribalists are people who know that, and who know what tribe they belong to, and consider it a proper way to live.  And, unlike most so-called conservatives, Pat is well aware that he's a White American and that his first loyalty should be to his own group.  Now, outside the White race, everybody else is encouraged to be tribal — Blacks, Mexicans, Jews, Muslims, anybody at all who can't or won't be a part of the White Supertribe. And, as long as this tribalism doesn't get to the point of hatred of other tribes, it's normal and actually quite healthy.  It would be healthy for us, too, because our selective anti-tribalism is killing us, both as individuals and as a people.

It's not a zero-sum game, you know.  If you love your own people and put their interests first, that doesn't necessarily mean hostility to other peoples.  On the contrary, groups who are loyal to themselves and put their own interests first are stable and secure, and as such can maintain cordial relations with other groups who behave the same way.  But flaky people who say they're "members of the human race" can't seem to avoid either abjectly surrendering to outside groups, like liberals love to do, or paternalistically interfering with other groups in an attempt to "bring them up to our level," like the neocons do. A group that desires neither to destroy other groups, or improve them through meddling, can easily get along with other groups and have mutually beneficial relations with them.  Just as sovereign individuals can do the same — they neither attack nor attempt to reform other sovereign
individuals.  And behold, you have a thriving society of cooperative individuals.  Nations, races, tribe, ethic groups — they can all get along similarly.

I've never read anything quite like this from Pat, but I expect he'd agree with it. Further analysis of Pat's outrageous firing from MSNBC by Kevin MacDonald HERE.
