Christianity, Patriotism and The Alt-Right

Can you be a Christian and Alt-Right?

That’s a question the TRS guys were debating the other day. It comes up a lot, mostly because the leading lights in dissident politics are not religious. Some appear to be outright atheists, even if they don’t make a big deal out of it. Of the old guys, I can’t think of any who are Evangelical. Most were Protestants, but have long ago drifted from their churches. I don’t think any of the next generation are religious. Some grew up going to church, but abandoned it as soon as they left home.

The thing with the Gen X and Millennial leaders of the alt-right is most of them are disinterested in religion and its role in human society. It’s not something that occupies space in their mental framework. Just because the leadership and intellectual elements of the alt-right are non-religious, it does not necessarily follow that the alt-right is hostile to the religious. They spent their youth marinating in Progressive dogma and as a result, they see culture through a secular lens, rather than a spiritual one.

There’s a lot more to this so there will be many more posts on the topic, but a good point of entry is the simple question at the start of the post. The alt-right makes race the primary identity. Christians, and I’m thinking primarily of non-denominational Christians, place their relationship with Jesus Christ as their primary identity. That’s an obvious conflict, as nothing in Scripture backs the primary arguments of the alt-right. Even the most expansive reading of Scripture cannot arrive at a pro-white position.

There’s also the fact that many Christians are fanatical supporters of Israel. They have incorporated unconditional support for the state of Israel with their Christian identity. That often extends to Jews in the United states. For many Christians, antisemitism is the worst sin imaginable. That’s an obvious problem with the alt-right. Then there is the egalitarianism that many Christians have internalized as part of their relationship with Jesus Christ. They believe they are called to treat all men as children of God.

None of this is necessarily a deal breaker for Christians and the alt-right, but it creates some rather obvious complications. What it means is the alt-right is going to have to get better at understanding how to talk to and appeal to this type of Christian. Simply making the pro-white argument is not going to have much appeal to people who root their identity in something that transcends race. The alt-right, if it is going to make inroads into the Christian community, is going to have figure out how to engage these folks on their terms.

What about Patriotism?

Strangely, the alt-right may have an easier time engaging with Christians, than the hard core Civic Nationalists. Christians have been oppressed in American for generations and they have learned the hard way that they cannot vote themselves to freedom. That’s not the case with Civic Nationalists. The narcotic of patriotism keeps them forever optimistic that one more election and the nation will return to the 1950’s, except with a lot more brown people, who magically embrace white middle-class sensibilities.

As with Christians, the folks listening to Glenn Beck or Ben Shapiro, as they drive around suburbia, root their identity in something that transcends race and ethnicity. Civic nationalism is a religion and a primary identity. They are Americans, no hyphen. More important, these people look at things like taxes and regulation as primary markers of fidelity to their civic religion. To them, guys like Richard Spencer sound like communists, because he doesn’t seem to care all that much about tax cuts or regulatory reform.

The thing is, the patriotic normie is sure he is working from facts and reason when investing all of his energy into the current political arrangements. In reality, gentry conservatism and libertarianism are a different implementation of the Progressive moral frame work. The ends are different, but the assumptions are the same. You don’t talk people out of their moral sensibilities with facts and reason. In order to sway patriotic normies, the alt-right is going to have to appeal to them in moral terms.

Most of the alt-right seems to think this is a self-resolving problem. Mass immigration and the war on white people will beat the patriotism out of these people. They will inevitably come to accept identity politics. Maybe, but it would be preferable to win over these people before America becomes Brazil. At that point it may not matter. The alt-right is going to have to think about how to offer something to these folks that rivals the narcotic power of flag waving patriotism. That means constructive engagement, rather than mockery.

These are just two facets to a very big topic. Racial politics in America has always been about the two sides of white America debating how to best deal with the blacks. That’s made identity politics two dimensional. In order to move past that, it means creating an alternative moral framework. That cannot be conjured from thin air. It must happen in relation to and in reaction to the current claims on the identity of whites. The alt-right will have to be reconciled with religion and patriotism, or it will fail.

I’m a Christian and fairly alt-right (from what I can tell of that pretty squishy definition). I’m not exactly a very conventional Christin, but here’s my take on a couple points: There’s also the fact that many Christians are fanatical supporters of Israel. God is the all-powerful God of the universe. If he wants to look out for Israel, he is and always has been perfectly capable of handling that on his own. God has never come to me in a burning bush and said “Defend Israel,” and nothing in the New Testament indicates that it is my duty to… Read more »

” God has never come to me in a burning bush and said “Defend Israel,” and nothing in the New Testament indicates that it is my duty to do so.”

Agree. Most of the members of my congregation regard Israel as just one more foreign country, with no religious significance to us.

“Treating all men as children of God does not conflict with treating a moron like a moron.”

Well said.

Drake

I think I’m in a similar place. I’m not a fanatical supporter of Israel, on the other hand, I’ve liked all the actual Israelis I’ve met and we do have the same enemies.

I find antisemitism distasteful so if it does become a centerpiece of the alt-right, you can count me out. I bet that goes for many like me.

Me too. When we get rid of our political criminals, then we might point a finger at Israel. Long after we point it at many others, like the UN.

On the other hand, if “antisemitism” means “anything other than our current policy of knee jerk support for Israel regardless of what they do, oh and you’re not allowed to talk about the blatant tribalism and nepotism amongst Jews in coastal Progressive America”, then there are suddenly a TON of antisemites running around, and I see nothing wrong with that.

Member

Correction time. To be called “children of God” requires the acceptance of Jesus Christ as the Son of God and Savior of believers souls. That is the criteria and does not include all people unless they have done this.’We are all children of God” sounds good but in itself requires no commitment.God requires the commitment. You’re welcome.

So important. You’ve nailed what we’ve been tiptoing around, unsure of our approach. Religion and military must be included because they aren’t going away.

Hasn’t there been a determined effort by the Left to subvert and take over churches, since the Sixties? Clearly they’ve had some success, as witness the Episcopalians. Perhaps Alt-Right or Dissident leaders know this, and have pretty much discounted some, or most of them, as possibilities for exerting influence.

Yes, but not only since the sixties. It goes back to late-18th-century New England. It started to hit the mainline denominations recognizably in the late 19th / early 20th century.

A lot of it is built in. The Church of England/Anglican/Episcopal is built on the arrogated right of divorce by power in the form of Henry VIII. A church with sexual license as its very foundation was bound to end up being about sexual license in its entirety.

Well done, and looking forward to the rest.

Before Africans and others were a mote in the Caucasian eye, and for two or three thousand years, whites have been going to extremes to subdue or exterminate other whites, not infrequently with people visually indistinquishable from themselves. If the rallying cry of white nationalism is enough to counter replacing our current population with others–doubtful–it has no future beyond that because it has never demonstrated one. My present enemies are invariably white people. All the others are second raters spun off by my enemies.

Cyndi

I’m Christian, and also sympathetic to the Alt-right. God created the nations, so I don’t think there is necessarily a contradiction in wanting to maintain our nation and not see it turned into a multi-racial, multi-cultural economic zone. Also, looking at the voting patterns of non-whites, it’s clear that although many are Christian, they vote for politicians who are entirely hostile to Christianity. A permanent Democrat supermajority (which is what we will have once whites are a minority) will mean dark days for anyone who is Christian.

The martial spirit and Christianity can and obviously have been reconciled in the past, and not just reconciled, but mutually supportive of each other. European history is rife with terrible, fratricidal wars between whites very much like each other, but there are also instances of Europeans killing to defend Western civilization (keep the lights on, as you say) and doing it in the name of Christ.

I think the alt-right is going to have to stick with arguments from self-preservation. Moral arguments are arguments from power. If you lack power, you do not get to redefine the moral rubric. The most effective way to harness moral arguments is to use them against the powerful by decrying them as insufficiently orthodox. Aside from egging on Progressives into ever more ostentatious displays of anti-white hatred, the only thing to bet on is the aforementioned take-over of the self-preservation instinct. To this end, I think directly appealing to either Christians or Civic Nationalists is folly. You can lead a… Read more »

A revival of “White Man’s Burden” could do a lot here. A big part of the WMB was bringing the Gospel to the heathens. Back when historians wrote to be read, “The Bible and the Flag” looked at missionaries’ role in building the British Empire. These were love-the-world do-gooders, many of them openly ANTI-Imperial, but they would never dream of making British citizens out of Indians and Zulus. They easily squared that circle. WMB also involves raising the condition of the natives (and missionaries spent as much time going on about “Darkest London” as they did “Darkest Africa”). You want… Read more »

You say: “Racial politics in America has always been about the two sides of white America debating how to best deal with the blacks. That’s made identity politics two dimensional.” True, but not exhaustive After fleeing the predations of an English Protestant political class whose internal divisions were trumped by their common anti-Catholicism, my Irish ancestors came to America only to find themselves embroiled in a war between two competing visions of Protestant Christianity. That conflict continues today, although the antagonists’ Christianity is much attenuated.

Christians, Alt-Rights and Patriots (CAP) may not all mix together into one cohesive batter to make the perfect cake, but can generally co-exist and form the alliance needed to defeat the progressive disease that threatens all of us. While all 3 groups have different goals, they all face the same enemy. In the end, if/when the Progressive scourge has been utterly defeated, I don’t see the 3 of them all deciding to turn on each other and continue the fight. Disagreements sure, but not full scale war.

The MSM and the Left (was that redundant?) are happy to use Spencer as the prime example of the Alt-Right. Spencer, just like David Duke, uses any excuse to get in front of cameras and increase his fame. As a promoter of a failed leftist ideology from the mid-20th century, Spencer is not a member of the Alt-Right or even any Right. Spencer and his Nazi cosplayers are better named the Alt-Reich.

Much of the alt right is quite young now. The religious space in their heads is presently quite small, and occupied mostly by nerves which connect directly to the penis.

For many of them that will change after they have children, or begin to approach middle age and apprehend their own mortality.

The answer lies in taking people one at a time. As an out-house Christian of sorts, I look at the man first and superficial identities second. I have no problem with joos, blacks and browns that embrace my values, pull their weight and chip in to help.

I distrust movements that talk about placing man or some equivalent placeholder like “reason” at the top of the stack. Mostly because all of the other attempts have devolved into mass murder.

As ZMan has pointed out, progressivism is the end result of protestant reformers and is in effect a religion. It’s a looney toon religion but it is the one in charge.

Progressivism cant possibly hold through a major crisis though because it is so opposed to objective reality. If we suffer another major financial upheaval, a new order will certainly emerge.

Progressivism is Marxism and has nothing to do with Protestant reformers. The idea that leftism comes out of Christianity rather than Marxism is the big error of Neoreaction, which is Jew propaganda. These folks seem to be entirely ignorant of the history of hostility between the Catholic church and the revolutionary Freemasons.

I think this article forgets an important point. People aren’t persuaded to join the Alt-Right, people are Red Pilled when their previous beliefs break under the strain of reality. The Red Pill is our recruiting tool. We shouldn’t be trying to persuade Christians and civic nationalists, we should be trying to figure out a way to destroy Christian’s faith in the current system, and Civic Nationalists faith in their own ideology without causing them to hate us in the process.

The Progressivization of Christianity is pretty recent, actually. It’s interesting that older guys like Pat Buchanan seem to have no problem reconciling race-realist and immigration-restrictionist views with Christianity. Neither did Rev. Dabney or Stonewall Jackson ,for that matter. As for Israel, just ask your average Catholic or Orthodox believer of sixty years ago if Christianity requires you to be pro-Israel. He would laugh in your face.

As an Alt-Right Christian, I don’t really see that this is going to be a huge issue, as so many of the previous commenters illustrated. Patriotism is going to be a bigger problem, IMHO.

Also, Nazi hunting is playing the left’s game. It’s like the race card. Us fussing over a few odd cranks on our side is exactly what they want.

The Christians were doing preparedness before the alt-right were born. I heard a show on combat surgery on a church station in 1992.

Same thing for the vets. Bigly.
If anybody knows conflict prep, survival, even victory, they do.

Christianity (and rabbinical Judaism) began as an urban movement, preparing to resist or survive a corrupt Empire. Some built in strengths there.

Hello Z-man, I would like to add a little bit of background to your article. American evangelicalism has a lot of currents and eddies so it can be difficult to navigate.

There is a third dimension, Glenn. It’s called Kingdom Identity, or Israel Identity. For example, see here: http://www.americaspromiseministries.org/ These Christians have the view that we neither coexist with “Israel” (the ‘Jews’) nor that we have ‘replaced’ Israel. Rather that Christians, as a conglomerate race of people (white/anglo-saxon/germanic) ARE Israel, and always have been. The three ‘millennialism’ eschatologies you mention are all flavors of dispensationalism.

The issue, IMO, with the Alt-Right is just like the Tea Party. It is organic. It has no leader. There are folks popping up and claiming to be this or that, but the alt-right is a manifestation or evolving of the Tea Party folk… at least the over 30 alt-right. Where the religion part comes in is the youngers who are at a disadvantage in being Christian since it is the ONE religion in the country that is mocked, forced to take this or that down, has mostly been corrupted by feminine doctrine or other PC stuff.

The wall of denial between the internal world of progressive christians and reality has become too forbidding for alt-right christians to scale. The outcasts gather online in such places as this to voice their opposition to the church of anomie. Talk doesn’t cook the rice, decisive action is needed to shape the outcome. Empty pews are an indication of their financial reality, which might explain why churches are in the refugee resettlement business, making them an annex of the bureaucracy, thus preaching the gospel of Marx.

My understanding is that the refugee resettlement business is financially lucrative for the churches, courtesy of the US taxpayer. Follow the money, and remember that the Libs see the church as something that is supposed to give to them, not the other way around. So as the churches Lib up, they must raise the money to pay the bills from somewhere. One of the really bad features of all of this is how both the government and the churches hide this financial arrangement from the taxpayers and many of the congregations. It’s like they don’t really want anyone to know… Read more »

Romans 12:2, John 17:14-16, John 15:19 and 1 John 2:15-17 are pretty clear about how Christian should define their relationship with the world. We also know who’s currently in charge of this world, which explains why things are as they are; “We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.” 1 John 5:19 – John 12:31 “The time for judging this world has come, when Satan, the ruler of this world, will be cast out.” – John 12:31. As for our future, that’s also spelled out quite clearly.… Read more »

Churches are only important to a society because they can set their societies morals code, and disseminate it to the society’s members. Because white people equate status with morality, that means that establishing the moral code will dictate the behavior of everyone who is attempting to raise their status, which is everyone. In the West, currently, churches don’t really matter. Because in the West, those morality & status setting & spreading functions have been taken over by the universities & the press. Mainline Christian denominations did not self-poz. They became pozzed because their leadership comes from people who the universities… Read more »

Patriotism isn’t the argument. Reality is the argument. Civic Nationalism and mainstream Christianity are at odds with reality, and are failing and will fail because they are at odds with reality. Reality is the Alt-Right’s secret weapon. Being realistic is the defining characteristic of being Alt-Right. This is also the reason it’s Impossible to argue with these people. They are currently in denial of reality as their current allegiance demands it, and as such are difficult if not impossible to reason with. They must be bludgeoned by reality until they wake up. I also think its a mistake to consider… Read more »

Zman, I dig your blog, but I honestly don’t understand why this is even an issue? I was really disappointed in TRS’s take as well, but at least they kept it confined to the personal. Prior to the 1960s a Christian having a nationalist and nativist (Alt-Right) tendencies would have been entirely unremarkable. Charles Martel had a lot more in common with the Alt-Right than the staff at Christ Church in Alexandria. I certainly wouldn’t question Martel’s faith. Israel-worship is also a very recent phenomenon. With regards tot the JQ, Protestants in touch with their roots know full well that… Read more »

Supporting Zionism means keeping the Holy Land out of Muslim hands. Christendom tried to take control of the Holy Land several times in the past and was never successful, and I don’t think we’d be successful today either. Israel was the Jewish homeland in our own Old Testament and them holding it in 2017 seems perfectly Christian to me, especially considering the alternatives.

No Jerusalem, no Revelations.
Muslims and anti-Roman Jews (the radical minority) win the war against Christians and messianic Jews.

“… nothing in Scripture backs the primary arguments of the alt-right. Even the most expansive reading of Scripture cannot arrive at a pro-white position.” Why state the obvious? Of course the Scripture is tacit on race. After all, all that mattered to its authors was the distinction between Jews and goyim. And, boy, were they ever specific about whose side they were on! Historians will probably spend another century or so arguing whether Christianity shall be treated as a dissident Jewish doctrine able to attract enough gentiles (the canonical view) or an originally gentile mystic cult with which a group… Read more »

Ultimately the political patriots can be convinced. This has already happened in large part. 10 years ago you could not post the slightest race-realist comment on boards like Free Republic without risking having your account closed. Now it’s not that different from V-Dare in terms of what people say in response to various unending black crimes and black corruption.

Christianity may be a harder nut to crack, though

The religious people , I always call them the Deus Volt crowd (think Vox Day here) seems to assume that a Christian West is a requirement for their to be a West and this is going to be a problem. Its pretty clear that Western people have pretty much begun to move on from everyones favorite Middle Eastern religion and organized religion in general and aren’t enamored with going back on that plantation for “muh free social capital” The non religious majority doesn’t want its laws written to suit religious ideologues. Don’t get me wrong a certain amount of deference… Read more »

There’s also the fact that many Christians are fanatical supporters of Israel. They have incorporated unconditional support for the state of Israel with their Christian identity

Jews can have a peaceful relationship with Mahometans because they are not idolaters in the eyes of the Messias-Deniers whereas Christians are idolaters and would be killed if the Messias-Deniers had power

Member
Being a Christian, you do have to hit them from the moral side. First, you have to point out that God always talks about nations, plural. A unified world is a Satanic world. Second, you discuss the Tower of Babel. This is my own view but I’ve always view the language split as more than language. Anyone who has tried to learn another language starts to find that languages carry their own assumptions and contexts. So mostly you have to talk to them on their turf in a scriptural manner. You can’t try to talk them out of Christianity. Finally,… Read more »

Shouldn’t we have a set of ideas and goals that we support rather than worry who’s allowed in the club? I have a hard time understanding why the Right wants to pursue identity politics when we see how crazy the Left has become and the damage done to our country from their identity politics. This list from 2016 somewhat defining the Alt Right was tweeted out by Ramzpaul the other day and I wish we could grow support around what should be a widely known platform, similar to this one. It should be so well known as to be conventional… Read more »

You may not be interested in identity politics, but identity politics is interested in you. I am a heterosexual white male, which to the identity politics left makes me the devil. This political situation has lowered my quality of life in real ways. Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away.

Absolutely, I’m with you, Taco_Town! And I’ve been hurt by this identity politics BS in very real ways as well. Bigly. I just think the way to solve is with policies and laws rather than going after people. A collection of policies and laws that when implemented create a fertile environment in which decent, hardworking citizens can thrive. I believe many of our countrymen out there are receptive to certain ideas (immigration, borders, non-interventionism, etc.) so it wouldn’t be hard to get the numbers. We need to use technology to find each other and meet, get an agreed upon platform,… Read more »

Christians like and support Israel for two reasons: 1. A Muslim state replacing it would not allow Christian pilgrims. See Iraq, Egypt, Syria, Turkey for the attitudes towards Christian pilgrims. 2. Muslims are the natural and eternal enemy of the Christian faith and Christians and Israel is their enemy. For Protestants, at least some, there is the end-times stuff and also for a few the idea that the sin of not stopping the Holocaust (a bit arrogant if you ask me to assume that power existed outside of God) by their ancestors can be washed away by supporting Israel. But… Read more »

The holocaust has to do solely with the Pluperfect Self Sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary where His burning charity for mankind substituted for the fires of the O.T. holocausts which where types of the Holocaust on Calvary (Which was the antitype).

Now, a holocaust is, in part, a sacrificial offering to God which is then consumed.

Unless you think the Nazis were killing Jews as an act of worship and then eating them, then don’t describe those war crimes as a holocaust

Actually, everything in scripture directly supports all the tenants of the Alt-Right. The biggest problem with modern day Christians is that they don’t understand their own scripture. The Tower of Babel story directly states that God wants all people to be part of separate nations and clearly forbids a globalist, all inclusive superstate. The bible clearly states Jews are evil and Jesus calls them “the Synagogue of Satan.” All rabbinic Judaism is directly descended from the teachings of the Pharisees and their demonic holy book, the Talmud. The Pharisees were/are a splinter group of Israelites who turned their back on… Read more »

Please name one strain of humans that has not profited or suffered from selling out their birthright for a quick profit.

Politics is patent medicine for lazy thinkers.
Monolithic and binary works for times of war. Sad to see that most have no off switch. Or just a reset.

But most are urban and educated. Mostly end up dead. Sad.
