How can there be a white nationalism if whites are of many nationalities? There’s Serbian nationalism, Polish nationalism, Russian nationalism, Greek nationalism, French nationalism, Irish nationalism, Scottish nationalism, Welsh nationalism, Italian nationalism, Croatian nationalism and many other white ethnic groups in Europe have their own brand of nationalism.
They conflict with one another, especially Polish nationalism and Russian nationalism/Ukrainian nationalism, or Serbian and Croatian nationalism among those for starters. White nationalism is a joke because whites are fragmented among various nationalities from Europe. The idea of a purely white country does not sit well with me. The fact that these so-called “white nationalists” want a society free of people such as Jews, Blacks, Hispanics, and Asians should trouble anyone. These white nationalists want a white ethnostate in America. Why not just preserve the America that our founders created? What’s wrong with that? The far-left claims that’s white supremacy. Whatever happened to the America that was founded 241 years ago in 1776? America WAS great. It has been always great since 1776. Trump wants to make America Great again. America has always been great since 1776. America has witnessed the destruction of its industries and the outsourcing of jobs to Mexico and other third-world hellholes.
Western Pennsylvania USED to be great. We used to have the steel mills of Pittsburgh and Northeast Ohio had the steel mills of Youngstown. These towns were seedy working-class communities where people from all over the world (mostly Europe) migrated and settled and brought their mosaic of culture with them. Meadville is known as “tool city” It would be a shame if our tool and die making plants went to Mexico. I like what ChannelLock tools is doing in Meadville by fighting to keep American jobs in Meadville, in our backyard. I currently live just outside of Meadville on Creveling Road. That’s right, I live in Crawford County, not Erie County, like I used to. The steel mill towns of Cleveland, Youngstown, and Pittsburgh have become soulless shadows of their former selves. I watched how western Pennsylvania lost much of its industry. Pittsburgh was a legendary town known now for Primanti Bros. and King’s restaurants, and UPMC hospitals, rather than its steel mills that made her great. Pittsburgh has witnessed the loss of its industries since the 1970s. The left has destroyed this region. I can see that Trump is trying to make America Great Again. Let’s make America Prosperous Again! Let’s make Pittsburgh and Youngstown go back to their greatness. Pittsburgh has the Carnegie Library System, which is the largest in the region. I have checked out books via inter-library loan from Pittsburgh, through Access Pennsylvania, which is the state’s library catalog that one uses to get books from other parts of the state that they would not otherwise be able to get, due to great distances and money involved. The Saegertown Area Library has free inter-library loan. You don’t have to pay any money to check out books from other parts of Pennsylvania, via this system. I have been able to check out Irish language learning materials. I am planning on getting something for the Urdu language next.
I have checked out books from Penn State’s inter-library loan that are Russian in origin. Penn State has a great collection of Eastern European dictionaries going back to the 1950s. These old Soviet dictionaries still have a lot of use for me, especially when learning Belorussian and Russian at the same time. Penn State’s collection of Eastern Bloc literature is truly something to behold.
Back to my original point. For the last 150 years, America has had someone claiming to return this country back to its greatness or former greatness. We had it with Reagan and now we have it with Trump. The globalists like Reagan sold our industry down the river to other countries. Working class families were alienated with the Democrat and Republican parties and blamed (rightly) both for the losses of their jobs. Bill Clinton’s NAFTA deal was a disaster. I think that America has seen its fair share of loss of our industries that made our country great since 1790. American industry has benefited this country since the 1800s. Trump is certainly NOT the first to claim “Make America Great Again” but he is the most vocal about it. Trump has decried the removal of Confederate statues because it’s erasing our history. Sure, they fought for slavery, but they were still Americans. They were southerners who were alienated with Lincoln and his anti-slavery politics, but they were educated at West Point and Grant served alongside Lee in the Mexican-American War of 1848.
Let’s not forget that Donald Trump is serving a noble purpose by making our country great again. Donald Trump is following the same line that has been followed for 241 years. America is always great. America will be even greater, thanks to Donald J. Trump. Trump is fighting against the losses of our jobs that have alienated and angered many people in Western Pennsylvania and Northeast Ohio. We’re not called the “rust belt” for nothing. These jobs moved down South in many cases because the southerners would work for less and they hated and still hate unions. Of course in the South, anything with the word “union” is generally viewed as a dirty word.
Southerners hate the word “union” because of the Civil War and their defeat in the Civil War. Lincoln kicked their asses. The South became a part of America again after 1865. Southern people are very interesting. Birmingham had steel mills, like Youngstown and Pittsburgh, it’s two northern cousins. The south had burgeoning industry going back to well after the Civil War. Northerners help to economically improve the South after the Civil War. The South after the Civil War wasn’t all about lynchings and discrimination against blacks and anyone who was white and from a foreign country, although that DID happen. I’m not saying it didn’t happen. I am merely saying that the South experienced a radical transformation after the Civil War. However, it took the Civil Rights movement for the South to be truly great. The Civil Rights Movement sought to rectify the injustices that blacks were suffering since the end of the Civil War. IT wasn’t just about blacks. There were whites from foreign countries who had been discriminated against because of their nationalities, Irish, Greeks, Poles, Jews, and Italians were notable in this respect.
The Southerners have been mistrustful of northerners building their industries and modernizing their region. The hillbillies in Appalachia were very mistrusting of outside influences and the KKK was no exception to this. In fact the KKK was the very embodiment of this mistrust of outside influences radically changing their communities. The Klan was strong 100 years ago, but now, they’re a joke. Who cares about them? Not every white person is a Klansman/white supremacist. We are not white supremacists, contrary to what bullshit those SJW types are spouting. There is practically no KKK left. They are a relic of the past. They are an anachronism. They are out of touch with modern times. Very VERY few whites are KKK members and those that are, are delusional in my opinion. I am a rural white working-class male who doesn’t make a lot of money and is dependent upon a handout from the government every week at Touch-Stone Solutions. I receive a $25 check every week and so does Lee, my housemate.
I am only 28 years old, but people who are much older than me, remember the time when Western Pennsylvania was a prosperous region and so was Northeast Ohio. I remember a time when the white working-class people of this region were making enough to get by and more. I remember when white working-class men were working in the steel mills. There were plenty of blacks of course, but it was a proud working-class region, Western Pennsylvania. From Erie to Johnstown, we were a force in America. Much of America’s steel production came from this region. 70 years ago, people were moving here from all over the world and working for a decent and honest wage. I remember hearing a time when Pittsburgh was a smoky city. Pittsburgh was a booming town and people were dying from not being able to breathe the air, it was THAT polluted. Pittsburgh was a happening place. This was before Wegmans moved into town in Erie. Of course, Erie has been a nice working-class town since the 1950s. The decline of Erie’s and Pittsburgh’s and Johnstown’s industry is alarming to me.
Of course, Detroit in Michigan is a mess now. Detroit used to be a booming town. It’s ruined now. Detroit has blighted parts of the city. They are deserted and crime is rampant. Pittsburgh has run-down parts, but I have only been to the nice parts of town, such as Central Oakland, Northern Oakland, and Southern Oakland and I have not been to Polish Hill, though.
