Andrew Fraser, a Canadian-born professor and author of The WASP Question, recently appeared on the Swedish Red Ice Radio podcast to discuss his research on our shared ethnic origin and why British-descended people today from Dixie to Canada to Australia seem unable to take their own side and advocate for their ethnic and national interests like other peoples of the world. In this enlightening discussion Fraser talks about the ancient origin of the Anglo-Saxons, their merger with the Celts of the British Isles, the high trust cultures created by northern Europeans, the rise of the Puritans and bourgeois society, constitutionalism as a substitute for organic identity, phases of American radicalism and the negative impact of American universalism on Anglo-Saxons and other White people throughout the world.
Professor Fraser favorably reviewed my book and described it as “as “important not just to Southerners but to other Anglo-Celtic peoples from England to Australasia struggling to maintain coherent national identities while remaining trapped within the vast multinational polity spawned by the permanent American revolution.”
In examing the WASP question let us review the words of Governor Wallace and remember that in Dixie half a century ago our British-descended folk were able to take their own side and even proclaim their greatness to the world – though it is interesting that even a staunch ethno-nationalist like Wallace had to couple his nationalism with the rhetoric of liberty, wisely joining the concepts in the phrase “freedom-loving blood”:
Today I have stood, where once Jefferson Davis stood, and took an oath to my people. It is very appropriate then that from this Cradle of the Confederacy, this very Heart of the Great Anglo-Saxon Southland, that today we sound the drum for freedom as have our generations of forebears before us done, time and time again through history. Let us rise to the call of freedom-loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the tyranny that clanks its chains upon the South. In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny.
