America’s unpardonable crime


“In committing the matricide of Europe
Americans heaped-up their own funeral pyre”

A comment in the Hellstorm thread and the US’s collapsing economy of my previous post that will soon overwhelm the anti-white, rootless spirit in America, moved me to reproduce this article by Michael O’Meara, originally titled “Summer 1942, Winter 2010: An Exchange”:


In the Summer of 1942—while the Germans were at the peak of their powers, totally unaware of the approaching fire storm that would turn their native land into an inferno—the philosopher Martin Heidegger wrote (for a forth-coming lecture course at Freiberg) the following lines, which I take from the English translation known as Hölderlin’s Hymn “The Ister”: (*)

“The Anglo-Saxon world of Americanism”—Heidegger noted in an aside to his nationalist/ontological examination of his beloved Hölderlin—“has resolved to annihilate Europe, that is, the homeland, and that means: [it has resolved to annihilate] the commencement of the Western world.”

In annihilating the commencement (the origins or breakout of European being)—and thus in annihilating the people whose blood flowed in American veins—New World Europeans, unknowingly, destroyed the essence of their own being—by disowning their origins—denigrating the source of their life-form, denying themselves, thus, the possibility of a future.

“Whatever has commencement is indestructible.”

Americans destined their self-destruction by warring on their commencement—by severing the root of their being.

But Europe—this unique synergy of blood and spirit—cannot be killed, for her essence, Heidegger tells us, is the “commencement”—the original—the enowning—the perpetual grounding and re-asserting of being.

Europe thus always inevitably rises again and again—like she and her bull from under the waters, which sweep over her, as she undauntedly plunges into what is coming.

Her last stand is consequently always her first stand—another commencement—as she advances to her origins—enowning the uncorrupted being of her beginning—as she authenticates herself in the fullness of a future which enables her to begin over and over.

The opposite holds as well.

America’s annihilation of her commencement revealed her own inherent lack of commencement.

From the start, her project was to reject her European origins—to disown the being that made her who she was—as her Low Church settlers pursued the metaphor of Two Worlds, Old and New.

For Heidegger, America’s “entry into this planetary war is not [her] entry into history; rather, it is already, the ultimate American act of American ahistoricality and self-devastation.”

For having emerged, immaculately conceived, from the jeremiad of her Puritan Errand, America defined herself in rejection of her past, in rejection of her origins, in rejection of her most fundamental ontological ground—as she looked westward, toward the evening sun and the ever-expanding frontier of her rootless, fleeting future, mythically legitimated in the name of an “American Dream” conjured up from the Protestant ethic and the spirit of capitalism.

Americans, the preeminent rational, rootless, uniform homo oeconomics, never bothered looking ahead because they never looked back. Past and future, root and branch—all pulled up and cut down.

No memory, no past, no meaning.

In the name of progress—which Friedrick Engels imagined as a “cruel chariot riding over mounds of broken bodies”—American being is dissolved in her hurly-burly advance toward the blackening abyss.

Yet however it is spun, it was from Europe’s womb that Americans entered the world and only in affirming the European being of their Motherland and Fatherhood was there the possibility of taking root in their “New” World—without succumbing to the barbarians and fellaheen outside the Mother-soil and Father-Culture.

Instead, America’s founders set out to reject their mother. They called her Egyptian or Babylonian—and took their identity—as the “elect,” the “chosen,” the “light to nations”—from the desert nomads of the Old Testament—alien to the great forests of our Northern lands—envious of our blue-eye, fair-hair girls—repelled by the great-vaulted heights of our Gothic Cathedrals.

The abandonment of their original and only being set Americans up as the perpetual fixers of world-improvement—ideological champions of consummate meaninglessness—nihilism’s first great “nation”.

While Heidegger was preparing his lecture, tens of thousands of tanks, trucks, and artillery pieces started making their way from Detroit to Murmansk, and then to the Germans’ Eastern front.

A short time later, the fires began to fall from the sky—the fires bearing the curse of Cromwell and the scorched-earth convictions of Sherman—the fires that turned German families into cinders, along with their great churches, their palatial museums, their densely packed, sparkling-clean working-class quarters, their ancient libraries and cutting-edge laboratories.

The forest that took a thousand years to become itself perishes in a night of phosphorous flames.

It would be a long time—it hasn’t come yet—before the Germans—the People of the Center—the center of Europe’s being—rise again from the rubble, this time more spiritual than material.

Heidegger could know little of the apocalyptic storm that was about to destroy his Europe.

But did he at least suspect that the Führer had blundered Germany into a war she could not win? That not just Germany, but the Europe opposing the Anglo-American forces of Mammon would also be destroyed?

“The concealed spirit of the commencement in the West will not even have the look of contempt for this trial of self-devastation without commencement, but will await its stellar hour from out of the releasement and tranquility that belong to the commencement.”

An awakened, recommencing Europe promises, thus, to repudiate America’s betrayal of herself—America, this foolish European idea steeped in Enlightenment hubris, which is to be forgotten (as a family skeleton), once Europe reasserts herself.

In 1942, though, Heidegger did not know that Europeans, even Germans, would soon betray themselves to the Americans, as the Churchills, Adenauers, Blums—Europe’s lickspittle—rose to the top of the postwar Yankee pyramid designed to crush every idea of nation, culture, and destiny.

That’s Europe’s tragedy.

Once Europe awakes—it will one day—she will re-affirm and re-assert herself—no longer distracted by America’s glitter and tinsel, no longer intimidated by her hydrogen bomb and guided missiles—seeing clearly, at last, that this entertainment worthy of Hollywood conceals an immense emptiness—her endless exercises in consummate meaninglessness.

Incapable therefore of beginning again, having denied herself a commencement, the bad idea that America has become is likely, in the coming age of fire and steel, to disintegrate into her disparate parts.

At that moment, white Americans will be called on, as New World Europeans, to assert their “right” to a homeland in North America—so that there, they will have a place at last to be who they are.

If they should succeed in this seemingly unrealizable fortune, they will found the American nation(s) for the first time—not as the universal simulacrum Masons and deists concocted in 1776—but as the blood-pulse of Europe’s American destiny.

“We only half-think what is historical in history, that is, we do not think it at all, if we calculate history and its magnitude in terms of the length… of what has been, rather than awaiting that which is coming and futural.”

Commencement, as such, is “that which is coming and futural”—that which is the “historical in history”—that which goes very far back and is carried forward into every distant, unfolding future—like Pickett’s failed infantry charge at Gettysburg that Faulkner tells us is to be tried again and again until it succeeds.

“We stand at the beginning of historicality proper, that is, of action in the realm of the essential, only when we are able to wait for what is to be destined of one’s own.”

“One’s own”—this assertion of ourselves—Heidegger contends, will only come if we defy conformity, convention, and unnatural conditioning to realize the European being, whose destiny is ours alone.

At that moment, if we should succeed in standing upright, in the way our ancestors did, we will reach ahead and beyond to what is begun through every futuristic affirmation of who we European-Americans are.

This reaching, though, will be no “actionless or thoughtless letting things come and go… [but] a standing that has already leapt ahead, a standing within what is indestructible (to whose neighborhood desolation belongs, like a valley to a mountain).”

For desolation there will be—in this struggle awaiting our kind—in this destined future defiantly holding out a greatness that does not break as it bends in the storm—a greatness certain to come with the founding of a European nation in North America—a greatness I often fear that we no longer have in ourselves and that needs thus to be evoked in the fiery warrior rites that once commemorated the ancient Aryan sky gods, however far away or fictitious they have become.

  1. As a commenter said today at WDH:

    Of course it’s true that the mentality of the Puritans has done immense damage to our people, but where did that mentality come from? It came from the jewish mindset in the Old Testament. We would live in an unimaginably different and better world if our race had never come in contact with this vile tribe or its twisted mentality. It’s remarkable how similar the outlook of abolitionists was to modern liberals regarding race. The numerous crimes committed by the Union armies against Southern civilians and the treatment of the defeated South is reminiscent of the treatment of defeated Germany by the Allies. Christianity, despite all attempts to digest this alien, semitic philosophy, has sickened and warped the aryan soul. It needs to be rejected as our spiritual guide before we can deal with the universal parasite.

    • I have felt for some time that my adherence to Christianity is unnatural somehow. I am an American of a merry mix of Northern European ancestry. I have recently come to realize that the religion and beliefs of these ancient Semitic peoples is not appropriate to me at all. Likewise for the modern-day Roman manifestations of these (Catholicism, Protestantism). What is appropriate for me? How am I ever to figure this out?

      • You need National-Socialism (Aryan Tribalism). Keep on reading “The West’s Darkest Hour” (linked at the sidebar, top right).

  2. Great quote! :)

  3. That statue of the baby being strangled at the top of the blog, what is that? It’s very disturbing.

    • Must be a bug or something: there’s no such image.

  4. I appreciate your spirit. However to blame Americans as separate from Euro culture only deepens the problem.

    Europe was at war before we joined.

    We are just as European as people on the Continent. Our involvement was no different than any of the other European tradionally colonial powers around the world throughout history.

    We have to solve the race issue together. A new cold war will help noone.

  5. The Masonic revolution in America was European to the core. It was begun in England and was a continuation of the English revolution and the long standing conflict between parliamentarians and the crown.

    Europe is one people. Any attempt by regional nationalists to divide us between Europe and America into two opposing peoples will result in our mutual downfall.

  6. The roots of democracy are to be found in Greece. The roots of American Capitalism are to be found in England. The roots of Masonry are to be found in Europe.

    What ails the entire White race is Judaism, not Americans.

  7. The roots of democracy are to be found in the forests of Germany and the tribes of northern Europe. America that you know and love is dead. There is no possibility of counter-revolution in America.

    • America was always decadent. At least since WW1.

  8. The Greeks practiced what John Winthrop would have called a “mixed aristocracy” in which a limited franchise of property owning males voted on which aristocrats from amongst themsleves would rule for a period. This system obviously had little to do with what moderns call “democracy”.

    Aristocracy or monarchy and aristocracy under the rule of law is the only authentic form of European goverment. Democracy is a red herring allowing middle class foreign bankers and merchants to gain the upper hand over any society’s organic elites. This is why the jews push “democracy” ad nauseum. Once the media is in jewish hands they can get anybody elected they want when this power is combined with campaign donations, blackmail and assasination.

    Once a European society’s organic elites are overthrown (French revolution late 18th c, Bauer family takeover of Bank of England early 19th c, end of the aristocratic Republic in America early 19th c.), the plundering and subjection of that society can begin in earnest.

    Mixed aristocracy was the original form of American government that prevailed in old New England and the South where the property owning freemen elected members of the native gentry (aristocracy) under the rule of law (English Constitution including Magna Carta) all under the English King.

    Democracy: The God that Failed is a must read that goes a long way toward dispelling the Whig myths of history and politics and reveals how we have been far more enslaved by so-called “democracy” than by any almost any aristocratic or monarchic system of glorious European past.

    A good read on how the American gentry in the late 18th c. set up a system which they thought would perpetuate their enlightened rule only to find themselves quickly displaced by new money men is found in “The Radicalism of the American Revolution” by Gordon Wood.

    How many Americans today know that the founders hated democracy?

    We still have honorable and disinterested (public spirited not self-serving) organic elites in America and Europe although they have been displaced in the corridors of power by bought and blackmailed placemen of the international bankers.

    Fortunately they are robbing our nations so blatently and their rule is so inept and corrupt that they will not be able to sustain the present order for long.

    • There has NEVER been a non-Aristocratic or a non-Plutocratic society.

      It is a total myth to believe that ‘elitism’ can be defeated … if you believe that, you will be unknowingly ruled by an elite that you deny even exists! That is the magic. The masses can believe in ‘freedom’, ‘equality’, and ‘brotherhood’, without realizing those are terms of their very enslavement in communal ignorance.

      • The cream always rises to the top?

      • I won’t say cream rises to the top, I would say SOMETHING always rises to the top … whether they be a spiritual elite, an aristocracy, or a degenerate plutocracy.

        What rises to the top? An ideology and culture of an elite; the ideology and culture is merely a symptom of who is running the society, not the cause.

        The masses are not philosophical (life dominated by ideas), instead, they receive ideology and meta-narratives which guide their life from above. Elites craft ideology and meta-narratives, and can be self critical of such cultural/cognitive structures … while the masses cannot.

        The masses don’t create cultural capital, they consume it … they are born into a world crafted for this. This is so obvious today with the Anglo-Judeo Plutocrats who have created the ‘cultural cave’, in Platonic terms, that the masses live in their entire life.

  9. Reblogged this on vikingbitch's Blog and commented:

    It is interesting to note how with the degeneration of American society, a sort of nostalgic longing for Mother Europe, specifically for Scandanavia, has reared its head so to speak. The craze among young and old over the Disney movie “Frozen” has brought about a renewed interest in Scandanavia, the old stomping grounds for the Vikings (see my prior post).

    Yep. You just cannot keep those Vikings down. The People of the Mud and Sand may try to mimic or suck off of the cultures the Nords created, but in the end, they cannot match the beauty of Nordic Culture, that being understated, minimalist, and practical.

    The matricide of Europe will not go unpunished by the gods. Karma is a bitch.

  10. Amazing post, amazing blog, amazing author, but God help us does it make me sick!

    I wish I could go back in time and live those few short years over and over again between the rise of the Third Reich and the beginning of it’s decay. That was a time when people were proud of their accomplishments, standards of living were high, the future looked boundless and self respect abounded.

    I have resolved myself to create it. I refuse to live in a fantasy. I plan to do everything in my power to recreate that life for myself.
