The second attack against integral Christendom, gaining momentum right now, comes from the nonuniversal herdists. They put the human beings into watertight hierarchic categories frequently of a racial nature. This new racial determinism, creating racial aristocracies, responsible to a collective “race” but not to a personal God, and racial proletariats with no hope of an earthly salvation, is not less a danger than the classic panherdism. The desire for racial purity in order to achieve the perfectly uniform herd leads to brutal persecution and finally to the strictest imaginable uniformism… The emphasis on race was so strong, because it is the only factor that cannot be altered by mere education, coercion, persuasion, or propaganda. A Catholic might become a Protestant, a painter turn into a dictator, a New Dealer into a Republican, but a Negro cannot become a “Caucasian,” a Semite, or a Mongol.

What are your views on Identitarianism? See: http://takimag.com/article/white_identitarianism_john_derbyshire/print#axzz4EDnSaWdX
Though I understand the concept of racial preservation, I feel like it’s some pseudo-royalty attempt to preserve bloodlines. The “They are my blood, my family” in the link sounds shallow when it appeals to Western civilization – as if an Irishman feels a connection with a Frenchman simply because (A) both are white and (B) “their kind” built the Western world. They want “white pride” even though borders, language and cultural norms are different in each of their country. But there is one thing that the men may have in common: Christianity.

In short, I take the view of Austrian political philosopher Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn that the Identitarian has a malformed identity. An identity based upon race essentially falls apart when confronted with the question, what does is the definition of “white” anyway? What unites the Frenchman and the Irishman is not race, but Catholic Civilization, and this not only unites them to each other, but each also to the Ethiopian or the Syrian; “The true European does not believe the myth of the “white” man or the “black” man. He believes in the reality of Man, who was created male and female in God’s Image. And while he values national and cultural differences, he believes in the unity of Christendom and the hierarchy of Authority.”
