Ameriphobes


Kit Brewer writes at VDARE:
I’d like to introduce a new word into the American conversation: ”Ameriphobe.”

I would define “Ameriphobe” as a person who would act in the best interests of foreigners at the expense of his fellow Americans. Ameriphobes can be conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat.

I introduce this word to counteract the word “xenophobe” which the multiculturalists use so effectively against us. The “phobe” or “phobic” at the end brands us as not just wrong, but unreasonable to the point of being psychotic. Never mind the the rational arguments of avoiding economic, environmental and cultural ruin, the term “xenophobe” makes us seem clinically deviant. It’s easy to dismiss the arguments of a clinically deviant person.

We’ve been using the word “traitor” to counterattack, but I think the term “Ameriphobe” would cause some people (at least the literate) to pause and think about the word’s meaning and cast the multiculturalists, not patriots, as being the clinically ill deviants that should be locked up after the coming cultural revolution.
An example of what Steve Sailer calls liberals' leapfrogging loyalty. Conservatives naturally put kin and community first (the Chinese love being Chinese, the French being French, whites being white, etc.), loving their neighbors (charity begins at home); liberals profess a Christian-sounding universality loving humanity in the abstract while hating their own people as hopelessly backward, disguised as Christian humility about your own country. It's really a form of showing off: "See how learned and cosmopolitan I am, not like you flag-waving prole trash" (such as Trump's base). "I thank thee, O Lord, that I am not as other men..." (Cf. "The Third World is our playground/zoo." Why lefties used to pillage non-Western cultures' trappings before 180ing about "cultural appropriation" to try to boss us around yet again. Decent people such as pre-Sixties "squares" weren't rude about that to begin with.) There are variations: neoconservatives are patriotic leftists, Jewish liberals (good Cold Warriors who rightly hated the Sixties) who want to spread that liberalism around the world like a gospel (changing from awaiting a messiah to ushering in a messianic age); "nation-building." Also, for our elite there really are no more countries; they serve themselves, not you or me either individually or collectively.

And yes, truth being objective, some cultures and thus countries are better. Other cultures have their treasures we can learn from, but Western civilization is the greatest.
