At this year’s alt-right American Renaissance Conference, Estonian nationalist Ruuben Kaalep gave a speech on his desire for “white European ethnostates” in the Western world, and warned the audience that white people may face “extinction” due to immigration and “low birthrates.”
Kaalep noticed that many people in attendance were his age or even younger. He boasted that they are “the future” of their nations, and he encouraged them to “build a national movement.” “I want to show you that — no matter how alone you might feel with our views — when you act, this will finally pay off,” he promised. “And you can be part of something great.”
He continued, stating that “we are the generation who has been sitting on a rusty balcony, dreaming of an ethnostate,” and while he might not live to see it — joking that he could die in an act of Islamic terrorism or be executed for the crime of being a white, heterosexual male — “perhaps some of us will be there for the glorious day” when they have “established white European ethnostates all across the Western world.”
“Perhaps the future god emperor of the American white ethnostate is sitting in this very room,” he remarked, eliciting laughter from the audience.
I see a lot of you here who are my age. Some of you are even younger than me. You are the future of your nation, who I want to encourage to act. To build a national movement. I want to encourage you, as a member of a rapidly growing youth movement, and a rapidly growing nationalist party. I want to show you that — no matter how alone you might feel with our views — when you act, this will finally pay off. And you can be part of something great.
I want to encourage you. For we are the generation who has been sitting on a rusty balcony, dreaming of an ethnostate. But all things will come to an end. Perhaps on my way home, I will be struck down by another jihadist airline bombing. Perhaps the Samson Option will be launched tomorrow, and we will all perish in nuclear fire. Or, perhaps, a few years from now, we will all be executed for being white, cisgender, heterosexual, male, oppressive shitlords after manspreading in public and failing to check our privilege in the current year.
Or, perhaps — just perhaps — not all of us; perhaps some of us will be there for the glorious day when we have won our struggle and established white European ethnostates all across the Western world. Perhaps the future god emperor of the American white ethnostate is sitting in this very room.
Kaalep declared that the “notion of a national identity” should be “so self-evident” that it is “rarely worth discussion.” However, he lamented, that is not the case. “Instead,” he said, “it has become more of a Hermetic knowledge” and a “truth that is hidden and dangerous, lest we all rediscover it and give it a political dimension: an ethnostate.”
He also warned of an ongoing “culture war” where “attacks on our roots become ever more violent” and where whites “face a true extinction” due to immigration — which he called an “invasion” — and “low birthrates.”
To be an Estonian, you truly need a connection with the land. And I truly have my little shire back in Estonia that seems so far away from all the evil in the world. This is something that is also deeply entrenched in being a European. And being a European nationalist. But, perhaps not so deeply in European colonial societies overseas.
This notion of a national identity should be something so clear, so self-evident, that it is rarely worth discussion. But in our modern world, it is not. Instead, it has become more of a Hermetic knowledge. A truth that is hidden and dangerous, lest we all rediscover it and give it a political dimension: an ethnostate.
We live amidst a cultural war. An era where attacks on our roots become ever more violent. And where we face a true extinction through invasion, low birthrates, and a poisoning of our living identity. It is true in my country as well as yours. I have not come here to America to tell you that you should not care for Europe. I have come to tell you that for Europe you should care most of all. For that small continent is still where your roots lie.
Finally, Kaalep continued his warning that white people may soon vanish off the face of the Earth, “doomed for extinction or replacement” in favor of hordes of “global citizens.” He asked his audience, “How many Europeans will need to pointlessly perish until we see the danger?” Kaalep also took aim at the politicians “who rule our countries.” After all, it is thanks to their supposedly wrongheaded policies that white people are facing “extinction” in the first place. For them Kaalep’s only solution was for “this entire political class” to be “eliminated.”
For a nationalist — let him be Estonian, Swedish, Polish, French, or Italian — Europeanness is yet another layer of identity. The European nations and cultures truly represent the diversity and multiculture [sic] that is ironically lacking from the world. In the time when under the slogan of diversity and multiculturalism, countless number of peoples are doomed for extinction or replacement with [numb] masses of global citizens in a global supermarket.
The reason [for the] need for a European perspective [is] because this dangers [sic] are faced by the whole European civilization, not only single nation states that encounter them one-by-one. This European perspective might also be the one that most strongly resonates with white Americans.
Just take a look on the countries where your ancestors once came from. Take a look on those places, the people there, and numbers. Yes, numbers will be in our minds. For, one is bound to ask how many immigrants can our lands carry? How many Europeans will need to pointlessly perish until we see the danger? How many of them will have to be among us until our borders will be shut? And how many of us will have remained by the day to keep alive our nations?
Because the politicians who rule our countries are wrong. They have been wrong countless times. They are wrong because their view of the world has nothing to do with reality. And this entire political class has to be eliminated.
