>Most of the old racists in the United States were Dixiecrats. Basically, you're more likely to find 'racist' (but not anti-immigrant) roots in someone like Joe Biden than someone like George Bush.
Please don't use that kind of inanity as anything other than bait4bantz. You know I know dixiecrats were not the same group as the "New Deal coalition", and mostly fled to the Republicans following the left-right partisan "flip" in which the two parties traded places. Moreover, using Bush is a terrible example, since his father was a literal Nazi.
>And yet, the alt-right has protested and even denounced Trump over every single interventionist action he committed during his administration.
That is less a quality of the aut-right's nationalist/fascist tendency (except for the "Reeee! Muh juice, muh ZOG Occupied Governmentbots, abloo abloo!" angle, which isn't anti-war/interventionism in general, but just specifically Hitlerite autism, and as such wholly irrelevant to literally any other right-wing ideology since WWII), more one of its centrist dudeweedlmao lolbert heritage that participated in WTO protests in the '90s.
>'cosmopolitan' alternative of monarchy and despotism
That's a very unfair characterization of feudalism. Their cosmopolitan character only extended as far as a need to obtain sperm donors from outside the deep end of the gene pool, and acquire more land. Aside from that, they were intensely fixated on clannishness and preserving ancient geographic boundaries.
>Theocracies weren't even a thing in the West until the Middle Ages
Even ignoring the god-emperor-ruled power of Rome, nearly all snownog tribes tended to vest shamanistic significance in the person of hereditary chieftains and warlords.
>Hell, the original purpose of nationalism in Europe was to unite nations against petty feudal lords.
Sort of, another common motivation was to form "national identities" that stripped away earlier layers of cultural distinction, typically resulting in the destruction of, e.g., other indigenous languages in France and Spain when "Frenchness" and "Spanishness" were invented. Anti-idpol provides the benefits of your favored, err… "meta-nationalism" agglomeration, but without excessively destroying diversity in the process.
>Ironically, white nationalism is the opposite of divisive. In fact, it unites every white person under one banner. You can have a white nationalism that creates a pan-white state which ironically would be an 'evolution' of that principle of centralization you love so much.
Yes, so far, so good. The problem is when existence of and/or contact with "other" essentialist groups ceases, at which point an ascendant "white nationalist" zeitgeist will immediately result in that unity exploding.
>Basically, white nationalism ironically is closer to Marx's world socialist revolution than anything.
The problem is, it's founded on an insane, anti-intellectual, pseudoscientific lie. By simultaneously enforcing unity and destroying spooks that could cause disunity in the future, anti-idpol provides the best of both worlds.
>Also, WW1 was actually caused partially by dynastic autism getting in the way of nationalism actually drawing sane European boundaries.
>The reduction of all economic debates to between markets and a lack of markets is a fabrication of capitalism itself, a part of the ideological apparatus created to support it.
Very much agreed. Even if IMHO markets/mutualism can only serve as a transitional regime to socialism, I hate that strawman.
>Class struggle isn't even discussed.
