The Patriot Movementís New Bestseller Tests Their Anti-Racism
The Daily Beest ^ | June 8th, 2012 | J.M. Burger

Posted on 06/09/2012 7:07:21 PM PDT by Travis McGee

Years after the racism of The Turner Diaries inspired Timothy McVeigh, the Patriot Movement has embraced a new bestselling series. J.M. Berger reads closely to see what they say about race and government in America.

An American Nazi Party volunteer recently produced a three-minute online video promoting the group’s platform. It spotlighted issues like the national debt, gas prices, domestic oil drilling, and America’s wars.

Almost as an aside, it mentions affirmative action. And despite some provocative imagery, the video never mentions the words Jew or black, or any related ethnic slurs. A white nationalist blogger praised the video for not “spamming people with inane Holocaust statistics or endless dry arguments over whether or not gas chambers existed.” Many militia groups now explicitly tell would-be members that they can’t also belong to a hate group. Racism just doesn’t sell like it used to.

The paint is peeling on the mythical age of white hegemony that once provided a strong backbone for the Patriot movement, a diverse collection of loosely connected anti-government groups and ideologies that motivated Timothy McVeigh and many others.

Groups under the Patriot umbrella have often, but not always, embraced racial politics. The movement’s origins were heavily influenced by racist activists such as white nationalist William Pierce, author of the infamous 1978 novel The Turner Diaries, a dystopian novel about a racist revolution, which inspired a slew of imitators and successors.

Since the 1990s, some within the movement have tried to sideline or redefine its racial politics—whether out of sincere conviction or to avoid an inconvenient stigma—and focus on other issues such as gun rights, survivalism, individual liberties, traditional morality, and Constitutional hyper purity.

This process has gone far enough to suggest the outlines of what a post-racial Patriot movement might look like. Consider Enemies Foreign and Domestic, a Patriot-themed novel self-published by former Navy SEAL Matthew Bracken in 2003. Known to fans as EFAD, it’s the first in a trilogy of political thrillers. The plot goes like this: A rogue ATF agent stages a terrorist attack and blames it on an alleged racist militia (which turns out to be neither racist nor a militia). The attack is used as a pretext for repressive gun seizures by misguided liberals, while the ATF villain foments more trouble, killing innocent gun owners, and framing them as racist terrorists. In response, a series of individuals and small groups rise up to carry out acts of resistance and/or terrorism, culminating in a direct confrontation with the villain.

While spotlighting several Patriot memes, the first book in the trilogy has an almost militant multicultural drumbeat. EFAD’s heroes come from almost every imaginable ethnic background—white, black, Arab and Jewish. Between its serviceable writing and self-inoculation against charges of racism, EFAD is probably as close to a mainstream recruitment tool as the Patriot movement could hope for.

During February and March of this year, Bracken made the book available for free as an Amazon Kindle e-book, and several Patriot blogs and Twitter feeds spent significant time promoting it, resulting in a brief stint as the No. 1 free Kindle book on Amazon. The idea was to break into the mainstream of conservative media (talk radio and the like). That effort fell short, but an online posting by organizers said more than 30,000 copies were downloaded.

EFAD represents a sharp break from its Patriot Lit forefathers, most infamously Pierce’s The Turner Diaries. That book has inspired at least dozens of admirers who tried to realize its concept of a revolution born from a campaign of terrorism, Timothy McVeigh among them. Told from the first-person perspective of a terrorist named Earl Turner, “Diaries” drips with racial animus from its opening pages, in which “negroes” armed with baseball bats forcibly disarm white Americans to enforce a repressive gun control bill. This inspires a general uprising targeting the government, Jews, and blacks and culminates in the use of nuclear weapons to ethnically cleanse New York, Washington, D.C., and Tel Aviv. White encampments are constructed in what remains of the United States; “race traitors” (such as those who intermarried with minorities) are summarily lynched.

In short, it is not a pleasant book, either for its values or its mind-numbing prose, reading more like a nasty after-action report than a story. Despite its limitations, The Turner Diaries spawned a legion of badly written dystopian future tales of race war, which are distributed online and in self-published tomes. Unlike EFAD, The Turner Diaries and many of its imitators preach exclusively to the racist choir, aiming to inspire existing racists to action rather than trying to attract new blood for a broader anti-government movement. But EFAD’s depiction of a racially egalitarian, pro-gun, anti-government groundswell may be more evolution than revolution. The trilogy’s second and third books Domestic Enemies: The Reconquista released around 2006 and Foreign Enemies and Traitors in 2009—continue to separate racial hate and love for liberty, but they do so while drawing ever deeper from the well of white racial paranoia.

Book two describes the takeover of the American Southwest by illegal immigrants, specifically Hispanic racists out to reclaim their historic lands from the “gringos.”

This dramatic shift toward racial politics is offset by the fact that the book’s major protagonists are all brown people, from a Lebanese Arab heroine to a half-Cuban FBI agent to a crypto-Jewish-Hispanic-American former journalist. (The author’s olive branch to people of color does not, incidentally, extend to Muslims, gays, college professors, or people with piercings).

Book three, featuring a corrupt president who invites foreign mercenaries to run rampant on U.S. soil, sees Bracken’s continued stipulations against racism slowly but surely shouted down by the arrival of Earl Turner’s world. After an earthquake demolishes Memphis, black refugees turn into a seething mob of gang-rapists and cannibals—characterizations that feature memorably in The Turner Diaries—while urban blacks loot a path from Baltimore to Washington, D.C., where they demand and receive a new Socialist constitution engineered by a thinly veiled caricature of President Obama. The narrative disclaimers continue—one character condemns white racist killings in the chaos after the quake, and a battle-weary white racist girl near the end of the book accepts a hand of comfort offered by a black Army medic. But these and other moments of individual race grace are hard pressed to counterweight the vivid, lengthy depiction of African-Americans en masse as cannibal rapists directly responsible for destroying America’s Constitution.

EFAD perhaps illustrates both how far and how not-far the Patriot movement has come over the years. Inasmuch as the movement coheres, it has shifted from fairly open and aggressive racism to a more ambivalent, conflicted posture. It’s not uncommon for Patriot movement members to vehemently deny they are racists, even as they speak in hushed, reverential tones about Turner author William Pierce. Bracken doesn’t have that particular problem. In response to an email requesting an interview, he called The Turner Diaries a “racist screed” and insisted it brooks no comparison to his series, angrily declining to answer questions.

On the other hand, in a recent online posting, Bracken advised people who want to be safe from a possibly impending civil war to analyze where they live based on a spectrum of rich vs. poor, urban vs. rural—and lighter skin vs. darker skin.

Racism has been the Achilles’ heel of efforts to unify the Patriots for as long as the movement has existed, with different factions embracing wildly different views about whether to embrace it and to what degree. The Patriot subset that declines to accept racism continues to cope with the issue unevenly and defensively. As in mainstream politics, those who wish to participate or influence the direction of the movement face pressure to cater to the radical base.

The result is a muddled message in which racism may be vocally condemned, but race war is deemed inevitable. Traditional racist language is avoided as taboo, but racial stereotyping is seen as “facing facts.” It is a rarified vision of a non-racist “realism” that can alienate white nationalist insiders while looking to outsiders like a distinction without a difference.

Now that I've been called a racist writer by some nobody blogger, I guess I'm supposed to be indimidated into shutting up.

Nice try, Burger. But thanks for the hits and the book sales.

K. Test time.

I was in love with a woman that is of island heritage(and can cook, seriously cook), and she's the color of coffee with a bit of cream stirred into it.

And I'm a celibate since a little before then.

Question is, was I right to run off to the western states for a couple of years so she could find someone to marry (that wasn't me).

I'm pasty white.

J.M. Berger: The Patriot Movement’s New Bestseller Tests Their Anti-Racism

J.M. Berger: "In a recent online posting, Bracken advised people who want to be safe from a possibly impending civil war to analyze where they live based on a spectrum of rich vs. poor, urban vs. rural–and lighter skin vs. darker skin."

That pinhead believes anyone that doesn't embrace being murderd by a "minority" is a racist that has denied the minorty the opportunity not to murder someone and prove they are not a savage.

Just look at the pinhead:

A typical White Guilt liberal that makes money on bashing whites to minorities. That's his schtick: "I hate whites, and being white, I feel ashamed. Please buy my writings and tell your friends not all white people are proud to be white."

Enemies Foreign and Domestic: If you haven't read it, you're missing out.

Well, given that I've told you the facts that I'm pasty white, and she's not...And your answer is that you don't have enough information....

You ain't racist.

And yes, it turned out well in the end that she did get married happily.

And I remain happily celibate.

In the essay title, Burger gives away his cluelessness not once, but twice. “Patriot movement,” as you said, is purely a paranoid libtard construct. And the expression “Anti-racism” is found only in the PC multi-kulti libtard lexicon.

Outside of Manhattan and other libtard enclaves, his title would not even make sense.

The blogger would love my feelings on government interference in business. I’m a true believer. Any entrepreneur should be able to refuse service to anyone for any reason short of a life or death emergency. That includes race, religion, sexual orientation, or left handed gingers.

Saying so doesn’t make me a racist, it makes me a free marketer who sees an opportunity to open businesses that cater to those turned away from other places. If I see a restaurant that has a sign saying they don’t serve Christians, I’m not going to be upset about it. I’m going to go to a restaurant owned by someone who welcomes me.

The same government that forces business owners to serve people against their will, has imposed a form of segregation on other businesses like bar owners forced to ban smoking in their private businesses.

If freedom of choice makes me a racist, he may as well call me a grand dragon but I’ll be a grand dragon without a racial or religious preference.

Wonder how many times this wretched little sitzpinkler had to change his Depends while skimming through your books. You can hear the sneer in the tone and the thinly veiled disdain he has for (lip curl here) the patriot movement. About what I'd expect from someone whose grasp of history reads like a cut and paste ransom note.

Ah well. Let them hate so long as they fear.

I think you said it very well. And it was very amusing, the contortions that Burger put himself through, to “prove” my racism immediately after mentioning all of the “brown” (his term, not mine) heroic characters in my novels.

The man is really hung up on racial identity politics. I don't think he has a single clue about what it means to be an AMERICAN, or how that can transcend race.

When some leftist reporter called the Tea Party tea baggers all the liberals immediately started using the term when they had no idea what it meant. When I asked one on FB if he knew what a tea bagger was his response was “Yes, it was people who threw tea off a ship in Boston harbour. But this tea party is nothing like the original.” This is from a guy with a master’s degree in history.

I laughed my butt off and said to him “Maybe you’re a tea bagger for all I know.” Apparently this made him look it up because he then started calling me a bigot. LOL

So, since you’ve been called a racist, every liberal who reads this guy’s blog now believes you’re a racist. And they won’t even have to bother reading your book.

Gee, I don't know, Matt. After reading this column, I get the impression that you might have actually rattled a few stuck pieces loose in the writer's brain.

But that's only to be expected when they run into someone like yourself, who tosses the "middle-aged white male racist/mysogonist" stereotype out the window. Yes, cognitive dissonance is tough to crack, but you might just have gotten some people thinking.

And that can be a powerful thing, folks, in the overall scheme of things. I have found that some of the strongest allies can be those whose minds you manage to change.

Or maybe I'm just the enternal optimist.

In any case, good on yer, Matt!

I’ll just say this, I’ve known you for what... 12 years now? Your books are not racist in any way nor are you. The author of that tripe about your book with his lame comparison to the Turner Diaries owes you an apology and needs he needs to be taken behind the wood shed for a lesson in manners.

Don’t let the leftist pinheads get under your skin bro. They aren’t worth the stress.

Does anyone remember a guy named DePugh? He formed a number of anti-Communist groups who were prepared to fight a Communist takeover of the country.

I remember reading a book about him back when I was in high school. This would have been sometime in the early 60s. I recall the government really went after him and I thought he helped them by having a lot of unregistered fully automatic weapons.

I agreed with him that we should have the right to own them, but why not just use semi-automatics until you could own them legally?

I have no idea what ever happened to him or his organization tho I know he went to prison over gun charges.
