The family problem

PostMon Apr 29, 2019 6:48 pm

I couldn't find another thread dealing with this, so I will put it here.
Do any of you run into the problem of family trying to get you to quit being a White Nationalist or non-christian? I try whenever I get the chance to awaken and educate family but never try to push or force them to accept my belief. The problem I am constantly having to deal with is they don't extend me the same courtesy. My father and Aunt and a few of my cousins I used to be close with are constantly trying to get me to return to church with them and renounce my political and religious beliefs. How do you deal with it other than cutting off all contact? I feel bad, because I feel I have a responsibility to try and bring them along, to help them become racially aware. Now there are some that I have given up on and cut all contact because they have made themselves undesirable by either race mixing or coming out as homosexual. Should I just cut my losses and give up on them all if they haven't been receptive?

You're asking the question we've all had to deal with when getting involved in Dissident politics. My suggestion is to not force the issue if it's going to undermine your relationship with your family. Are they finding White mates and raising their children the right way? So long as they are, I would keep them appeased, albiet at an arm's length. If they are forcing the issue on you, I would politely but firmly assert that you will not be changing your closely kept values, and leave it at that. If they aren't willing to respect that, their loss.

Not everybody is wired to be who we are. This is the hinge upon which the National Alliance pivots. We are looking for the select few that are receptive to our ideology and whom can help us build the new White world. The rest, as they say, will follow.

I can tell many similar stories I had with my family members and with friends from my youth like those you've had with your family. There will probably be one or two who won't shun you and won't try to convince you to be "respectable" like they think they are. Keep them in your orbit; be civil with them but don't try to convert them to reason and reality. You'll be surprised at who comes around to your way of thinking eventually out of respect for the way you comport yourself

Embrace those who agree with you. They are smarter and much more enjoyable to be around and interact with. Believe me. They are like your new family. Really! It is they, that small core within the minority of racially responsible, independent-minded, Whites who we will build our still small, uncompromising movement into a majority movement of will and determination. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

I once tried to hand my father, a very intelligent man otherwise, a copy of the National Alliance's magazine, National Vanguard, He slapped it away and told me, "I'm not going to read that goddamned shit." Imagine that. I gave him a big hug and walked away and didn't see him again for years after that. He knew at some level that I was right but cared more about what "respectable" people would think of him if he was associated with such radical ideas. I embarrassed him with my activism. His fancy lawyer, who was the attorney for the State Republican Party, told me once, "Will, if you don't give up your 'fascination with the Ku Klux Klan [sic]' :lol: , your dad will cut you out of his will." I told him, "You tell the ol' man (a multimillionaire) if he leaves me any money, I'll donate every penny of it to the National Alliance." He left not one penny to me, nor to his other two biological sons, though they hung around and stayed loyal to him until his end.

Such is life. First, you have to live with yourself and follow what you know to be right and to what's necessary, no matter what the naysayers tell you.

Thanks, Will, I think a lot of us needed to hear that.

Yes, thank you Will, I need to hear things like that occasionally. I just get discouraged sometimes that if the worst comes I could lose the people I care about, because I can't find a way to bring them around. I know in my head that we will lose some but I still wish I could wake them up. Sometimes it seems easier to get through to strangers than your own family.

Interesting family stories here. My own is a bit different, I was raised to be whatever I wanted to be--and so far no one really objects to my having traveled the path of awakening to Cosmotheism and the obligations and responsibilities that brings. That's not to say they're overjoyed about it either! Each of us travels the path in life that suits our temperament and character, and they have done so also.

Sometimes I refer to Family as the other F-word, most of mine are pathetic cowards.
I'll just leave it there.
