The new September edition of the New English Review features an article on our community here at europeancivilwar.com.
Titled “Julian Langness’ Fraternity Of Combat”, the piece is written by an individual named Dexter Van Zile. Zile is a relatively well-known writer, and is the official ‘Christian Media Analyst’ for the also relatively well-known Committee for Accuracy in Middle-East Reporting (CAMERA).
Van Zile’s profile covers me, my book Fistfights With Muslims In Europe: One Man’s Journey Through Modernity, and especially this website and our community of like-minded individuals. You can read it here: http://www.newenglishreview.org/Dexter_Van_Zile/Julian_Langness’_Fraternity_of_Combat/
It is very interesting and multifaceted, but on the whole I think it can fairly be described as critical yet sympathetic. The author, who I think most would fairly call as Christian-Zionist, says that its too bad I am not a pastor in Middle-America and that if I was I might even have a ‘Megachurch” in my future (lol). Instead, it explains, I- and those of you who read this site- have embraced all the same evils that lead invariably towards fascism. However, Van Zile concludes, Progressivism is so crazy and the modern West so filled with White self-hatred that its easy to see how we wound up in this tragic ideological backwater.
The article states that I am “not a very deep thinker” and that my writing is “derivative”. It also characterizes a lot of the themes of my book as “appalling”, yet its hard to get too defensive about the article. The outrage at all the ‘fashyness’ as some would call it seems pretty forced, and Van Zile himself has to acknowledge that my criticisms of Progressivism are entirely valid.
If I really wanted to get into the trenches and try to argue back on this stuff I might point out that all the positions vis a vis Europe I articulate that Van Zile calls “appalling” and says are “from the devil”- ideas such as “the primacy of the group”; a “sense of crisis”; a sense of “victimization”; romanticization of heritage; the Mannerbunde; and what Germans now call “Völkishness” (love of one’s people)- are all things equally embodied by the State of Israel (who Van Zile is a big supporter of), but as I said its not that critical an article and is actually a very fun read.
Also, to point out the obvious, none of us wish for a war in Europe in a vacuum, we all jut recognize that it is the least horrible alternative out of a set of really horrible alternatives. We would all prefer that Progressivism had never risen up after WWII to foment the destruction and enslavement of our ancestral lands. It did though, and as a result we are stuck with the horrific set of possible courses we have today. I am proud to have such a strong community of readers/brothers/commenters who recognize this truth, and who understand the need for a Reconquest.
Editor’s Note: Fistfights With Muslims In Europe: One Man’s Journey Through Modernity continues to sell extremely well.
