So Joe Biden addressed America last week [Read the full transcript from President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress, USA Today, April 28, 2021]. And the GOP Establishment/ Donor Class’s token black Senator Tim Scott gave what was supposed to be the rebuttal [Read Republican Sen. Tim Scott’s response to Biden’s address to Congress, CNN, April 28, 2021] But their speeches were practically identical on the issues that matter. The Historic American Nation is utterly unrepresented in both parties. A new force must emerge lest we face total dispossession.
Biden and Scott both accepted the Bizarro World framing of racial issues in this country, where whites become the perpetrators rather than the victims of government policy. Both ignored the staggering nationwide crime increase, with blacks both the principal perpetrators and victims (not that anyone cares, least of all blacks). Both accepted the inevitability of mass immigration. And other critical issues—Antifa and continuing mob violence, the collapse of the Rule of Law as shown in the Derek Chauvin lynching, and the disintegration of American sovereignty and identity—were simply papered over with greeting-card clichés.
Leave aside September 11, 2001–our rulers never cared about that. Forget the various occupations of government buildings by Leftist mobs, which the Main Stream Media cheered. Forget the Puerto Rican independence group FALN that murdered Americans, a group that today possesses something like radical chic. Forget even the actual bombing of the Capitol in 1983 by a group that included Susan Rosenberg, who was pardoned by Bill Clinton and went on to raise funds for Black Lives Matter and other Leftist organizations [Fact Check: Did a Black Lives Matter Leader Bomb the U.S. Capital in 1983, by Mary Ellen Cagnassola, Newsweek, February 10, 2021].
I have never been more optimistic about the future of America. We have stared into an abyss of insurrection and autocracy — of pandemic and pain — and “We the People” did not flinch. We came together as one America. With light and hope, we summoned new strength and new resolve. pic.twitter.com/Lzk9qkxCnM— President Biden (@POTUS) May 2, 2021
World to Ruling Class: the Dem/Media Narrative has now completely disintegrated. Officer Brian Sicknick was not killed by Trump supporters; all the dead at the event were pro-Trump protesters [One Month Later CNN Finally Admits Revolver Reported All Along; No Bear Spray Stream in NYT Sicknick Video, Revolver, April 29, 2021]. That Ashli Babbitt’s killer remains unnamed is an increasingly unsustainable scandal (The blogger Zman has speculated that he was Congressman Cedric Richmond, now in the Biden White House; there are other reports that he was black Brazilian BLM-supporting immigrant; the family’s lawyer says he knows who he is ).

Trump supporters remain in jail based on their suspicions about the undeniably controversial 2020 election, not because of their alleged deeds, and are reportedly being beaten and tortured [Capitol riot defendant alleges beating by jail guards, by Josh Gerstein and Kyle Cheney, Politico, April 7, 2021].
Face it: America has now political prisoners—and has consequently lost all standing to lecture countries like Russia or China [Indefinite Incarceration for Protesters With ‘Wrong’ Politics, by Julie Kelly, American Greatness, April 12, 2021].
Senator Scott didn’t comment on any of this.
The unceasing riots by Antifa in cities like Portland were also unmentioned by both Biden and Scott, even as Portland’s Leftist mayor has had enough [Portland mayor: Time to ‘take our city back’ from violent protesters, by Kerry Byrne, New York Post, April 24, 2021].
Instead, Joe Biden babbled about protecting Asian-Americans from “Hate Crimes”—without acknowledging that whites are generally not the people actually committing them.
Incredibly, ignoring the carnage in American streets, Joe Biden instead grandly proclaimed that the danger is from “white supremacist terrorism.” This is simply another blood libel against the Historic American Nation.
So did Tim Scott defend Republicans from this charge?
Of course not. Instead, he lamely told us that “America is not a racist country”–as if Leftists are arguing in good faith and would be influenced by this rational argument.
Worse, Scott tried to move the GOP to the left of the Democrats on “criminal justice reform,” saying his opponents should have joined him in taking a soft-on-crime approach.
Needless to say, many blacks and progressives have insulted Scott in racial terms, another indication of how utterly fake is the moral panic around “racism” [Scott: ‘Uncle Tim’ social media responses to GOP speech ‘so disappointing,’ by Dominick Mastrangelo, The Hill, April 29, 2021]
Scott and Biden also essentially agreed on the political economy. Scott bemoaned the loss of the Trump economy, in which unemployment had been “the lowest for women in nearly 70 years.” Joe Biden also mourned the loss of women dropping out of the workforce and proposed billions for childcare, especially for low-income households.
Yet both these takes view Americans, above all women, as simply economic drones who need to be driven back into the workforce, with children shunted off onto social services. Both parties apparently accept that as many people as possible should be working—as opposed to a high-wage model in which families can be supported on a single income.
Has anyone actually asked women what they think about this?
Of course, the best way to create a tight labor market and increase wages would be to restrict immigration. But the immigration surge created by Joe Biden’s policies is already replacing American workers, and its full effects have yet to be felt.
Tim Scott referred fleetingly and vaguely to the border crisis created by Joe Biden—but on the silly grounds it wasn’t real “compassion” for migrants.
And that was the only passing mention Electing-A-New-People immigration got from this GOP Establishment/ Donor Class mouthpiece.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden vowed to end the “exhausting war over immigration”—not by stopping immigration, but surrendering to it forever.
Biden has already frozen funding for border wall construction [GOP ramps up attacks on Biden’s border wall freeze, by Niv Elis, The Hill, May 2, 2021]. Instead, in what he presumably thinks is a more realistic approach, Biden proposed:
We also have to get at the root of the problem of why people are fleeing to our southern border from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. The violence. The corruption. The gangs. The political instability. Hunger. Hurricanes. Earthquakes.
Needless to say, no corporate journalist or politician will ask precisely what this means. Are we supposed to rescue Central Americans from their own governments with a new form of colonialism? Are we supposed to prevent gang violence abroad when President Biden is letting it grow at home? Are we supposed to control the weather by doing something about “hurricanes” and “earthquakes"?
One thing that was common to both speeches: the absolute invisibility of the Historic American Nation, the European-American majority.
Tim Scott, citing America’s races of “Black, Hispanic, white, and Asian” (with whites of course not capitalized), pleaded that “we are not adversaries” [WATCH: Sen. Tim Scott delivers GOP response to Biden speech, April 28, 2021]. Yet what else can different groups be, under an increasingly formalized racial caste system that demands Americans think of themselves as racial groups squabbling over resources?
Why must whites, and whites alone, accept these never-ending Blood Libels about crime, violence, and terrorism, especially when whites are the victims of such evils, not the perpetrators?
When Tim Scott says, “we are not adversaries,” he was presumably referring to the de facto union between the GOP Congressional leadership and the Biden Administration. Both view America in essentially the same way.
So what should have been said in response to the Biden de facto SOTU?
My opinion: these should be the Historic American Nation’s non-negotiable demands on the Global American Empire:
We—overwhelmingly the voters for Tim Scott’s Republican Party—are the people who pay for this rotten system and keep it going.
But we are entirely unpresented. It’s intolerable. We are the subject of insults, hatred, and outright Blood Libels from the people who are supposed to be representing us.
The GOP, the supposed Opposition Party, seems to be piling on, with Tim Scott begging to the jeering Journofa class to acknowledge that Republicans aren’t racist.
This is a humiliating display. It’s a disgrace to all of us. It’s time for a real patriot opposition that will confront the real cultural and economic threats facing our people.
Of course, that requires acknowledging that “our people” actually exist, and aren’t just an abstraction.
America is more than just a false “idea.” It’s our home. It’s the only home we’ve got.
And we must be prepared give everything for it—even if Tim Scott’s sponsors are not.
The only war what’s left of the Historic American Nation needs to worry about is the one being waged against it at home.
