From the New Observer:
Grateful German women snapped up boxes of pepper spray handed out by activists from the German Identitarian movement in the Saxony-Anhalt town of Halle today, in a powerful political propaganda act that the organization hopes is emulated elsewhere in the country.
The pepper spray giveaway took place at noon at the Riebeckplatz, which is Halleâ€™s largest central transportation hub, with at least 52 trains passing through every hour at peak times.
Here is what the leaflets that the group handed out read:
Surely you have heard of the shocking events in Cologne.
On New Yearâ€™s Eve there was massive sexual violence: Women were surrounded, abused, dishonored, and stripped. â€œWhat women have experienced there were rapes,â€ said one officer, who served on the night. Meanwhile, the number of victims has risen to about 500, as more and more women report to the police. There were at least two cases of rapes. The police seemed unable to prevent the brutal assaults. Sadly, Cologne is not an isolated case. At the same time, similar incidents occurred in Hamburg, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, and many other cities. The perpetrators belong to organized â€˜asylum seekerâ€™ gangs. Over 1,000 North African and Arab men are said to have gathered together for the violent excesses. The vast majority of identified suspects are alleged â€˜refugees.â€™
Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker therefore convened an emergency meeting.Â But the result was shocking: instead of finally showing firmness against criminal foreigners, Reker called on the German women to change their behavior!
At major events in the future, she said, they should keep an â€˜armâ€™s lengthâ€™ distance from strangers. This is a policy that mocks the victims: Instead of defending our security, our dignity, our way of life, and our culture, she asks us to submit to the strangerâ€”in our own country. Our people deserve security. But this policy is a betrayal of the people.
Cologne is a symbol.
It has shown that the state has failed: It has not protected its borders. In the past year, more than a million illegal immigrants have entered our country, and the state now cannotâ€”or will notâ€”protect women and girls.
Therefore, it is up to us to defend ourselves.Â Itâ€™s time to fight back.Â For us, our families, and our country. Therefore, the Identitarian movement has decided to hand out free defense sprays to women.Â The defense spray in your outstretched hand is the right arm length that you need in order not to become a victim! Our appeal is: Do not give in! Defend yourselves â€” because it is our land! Take care of yourself and travel safely through the city.
â€“ The immediate closure of the border and rejection of all illegal immigrants!
â€“ The deportation of all criminal foreigners after they have served their punishment!
â€“ The remigration of illegal immigrants to their home countries!
Having attended NPI’s conference this October, I was surprised to learn from one of the French speakers that similar groups to NPI were small and virtually non-existent in Europe- and that our little outfit in the ‘ol USSA was the biggest one of its kind. However, I have always heard about Generation Identitaire’s activism and inspired by their manifesto. (read it for free in our Index, just give us your email.)
It is heartening to see what they are doing. Very heartening indeed. It is my sincere hope that we can effect to do the same here in Burgerstan. My only concern is the label that we have chosen for ourselves: White Nationalists. I admit, I like the ring of it- mostly because I always fantasized about being a White Army officer and executing Bolsheviks- but I digress. The point is that the name is instant anathema to many. It sets off such a Pavlovian knee-jerk reaction that many in our movement admit they had to personally overcome.
We need something better.
In this cultural war of words, ideas and memes, the right labels and the right names matter.Â Even the idea of “whiteness” has to be explained to many whites who are non-pozzed, but simply do not think in terms of pan-white identity. Here in the States, we can easily forget that Europe was never a melting pot of European peoples like the United States was. Europe still is for the most part a collection of ethno-nation states to whom the idea of “whiteness” is alien. “Frenchness” yes, “Europeaness” even for some exists as a concept.
But “whiteness” is an American concept and does not carry over so well across the great pond. It certainly does not hold ground in Eastern Europe- and for good reason. Russians would never consider themselves the same as Germans, despite the color of their skin. And years of fratricidal wars have not left the collective memory and psyche of the Russian people today, in fact it acts as the basis of their National Identity today- namely their defeat of the German invasion in WWII.
Much to think about. But I like the name they have going for them. Generation Identitaire. It stresses the Generational divide that many of us feel with the senility of the boomers here in the States and the 68’ers as they are known in West Europe. A vile generation dedicated to hedonism and importing Jamaicans to wipe their aging asses as they rot in retirement homes because they failed to have enough kids/take care of them well enough to impart a sense of duty to take care of themselves in old age.
It stresses the novelty of the movement. The youth appeal. The sense of rebellion. It’s edgy, get it? It doesn’t even use an old 20th century term like “Nationalism” in its title. It’s got something else going for it. “Identitarianism.”
What is that you might ask? See? You’re asking. You didn’t just knee-jerk discuss it as you might have “White Nationalism.” It hasn’t been pre-programmed into your hind brain by years of indoctrination as a no-no word. You might just look into it more.
In short, I’m a fan. We need something like that too. A new term perhaps. It will combine the best ideas of our Red-Pill movement for maximum appeal to the youth. A bit of applied Game, an HBD base, some healthy homophobia, edgy activism and all of it topped off with a big heaping dose of Anti-Semitism. Since we still have the 1st Amendment and can’t go to jail for stating less than flattering truths about our semitic friends here like in Europe, I say we capitalize on that. Until then, I will shamelessly borrow Generation Identitaire’s label.
I’m an Identitarian now.
