IDENTITARIANISM

Identitarianism
Identitarianism is an ideology associated with the European New Right. In France, it is represented as an anti-immigrant pro-white socio-political youth movement defending Europe from Cultural Marxism and Islam.

I believe Identitarianism represents an opportunity for Euroethnic Christians to defend our faith and race by defining themselves by what we affirm rather than what we oppose. Identitarians are FOR their identity (people and values), whereas conservatives are simply against change, innovation, and the "other."

For example, conservatives are against LGBT marriage, whereas Identitarians are for traditional gender identity. Liberals want to erase gender differences, Identitarians want to affirm them.

Identitarianism has the potential to swing the dialogue balance against liberals. Rather than being against progress (like conservatives), Identitarians support people's inborn identity and argue progress can only be made by believing in one's civilizational and genetic heritage.

Modern white Christians need a positive identity more than anything else. White Christian males, especially, are indoctrinated from youth to believe their religion is backward, their race is responsible for every historical atrocity, and their gender is inherently violent and oppressive. They cannot affirm any of their identity; rather, they are forced to reject their own existence to conform to modern Cultural Marxist social thinking if they hope to be socially accepted.

Identitarianism wants to affirm this generation of Euroethnic Christians and fight back against the cultural, ethnic, and religious erasure of Western European man.

I agree with Richard Spencer (editor of Radix Journal) when he recently observed:
'"...we find Identitarianism to be powerful, evocative, and useful on a number of fronts. First, it posits Identity as the center—and the central question—of a spiritual, intellectual, and (meta-)political movement. In other words, Identitarianism is not just another agenda on economics, human rights, public and foreign policies, etc. It’s a statement that all of these questions—and many more—can only be addressed after asking much bigger ones: Who are we? Who were we? Whom will we become? And Identity is not just the call of blood, though it is that."
