Ronald Reagan on Americanism

US conservative icon President Ronald Reagan, a man celebrated by popular talk radio host Rush Limbaugh as “Ronaldus Maximus” and put forth as the standard by which Republicans are judged, held a radical universalist view of Americanism which was essentially the same as that of Barrack Obama and Jeb Bush. Reagan, who signed the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday into Federal law and sided with Black communists in South Africa in imposing sanctions against that country’s former pro-White government, said, “Call it mysticism if you will, I have always believed there was some divine providence that placed this great land here between two great oceans, to be found by a special kind of people from every corner of the world, who had a special love for freedom and special courage that enabled them to leave their own land, leave their friends and their countrymen, and come to this new and strange land to build a New World of peace and freedom and hope.”

The cheering David Marcus of the Federalist website sums up Reagan’s radical ideology of Americanism which favors re-populating the United States with Third world immigrants as “New people make us better.” As Marcus notes, waves of immigrants radically different than our founding stock means that “white, Protestant, traditional America would never be the same.” This is a good thing in the eyes of Reagan and Marcus. This is Americanism. It is nearly the polar opposite of the healthy, traditional Southern worldview.

  1. And yet we, Southerners, supported Governor Reagan in droves, and, still to this day, cherish his memory.

    But, then, Sir – this is probably not unknown to you; which is, one presumes, why you have been trying to plant seeds to undermine what you regard as self-destructive idolatry.

      • That’s why you are a leader, Sir, and I am happy to follow in your footsteps.

        I remember, walking through the woods of far northern New York, saying to a dear Yankee friend, almost ten years ago : ‘The Union is not a success, for it prohibits both parties from being who they want to be’.

        For some time, I nurtured that private suspicion in my solitudinous breast, and tried not to consider myself more crazy than some of my acquaintances regard me; until, one day, I accidently stumbled upon you and Dr. Hill, in some damn gymnasium or armory, somewhere, and then I actually could see the first Southerners that made absolute sense to me.

        Those first weeks of watching y’all’s videos really put the pieces of the puzzle firmly in my mind.

        • Thank you, JD, but I am not a leader any longer. Just a man with a blog. It is all I have time to be at present.

  2. After deciding to confront anti-Southerners on Huffpo, I’ve discovered there are many silent Southrons who have approved of my comments, although rarely, if ever commenting themselves.

    A Southern Nationalist and Populist party would spell the end of the Dems and Repubs in Dixie. Reading the comments on an article about Wendy Davis, makes it clear that Northerners do not understand that Texans reject the Democrats because they’re Northern Progressives, not Southern Populists. Texans and other Southrons care about keeping food on the table, not about the supposed rights of three legged bisexual Martians, or other abstract nonsense that animates the Democrats in Boston, New York and Chicago.

    • Mr. Owen,
      I, too, find a lot of silent approval, at church, when we discuss politicks, and we often do. The hell of it is, though, for too many of them the gulf between giving a begruding nod to my remarks, and embodying them seems to be vast and insuperable.
