    But does that not contradict each other? Can you be both an American and a German at the same time? I myself am not very nationalistic but most nationalists say that you cannot have two cultures but that you have to chose one of them.

    "German Confederate"....I like that. I guess I would be a "Germanic Cascadian".

    I think more people should get away from referring to themselves as American. It really is a poor descriptor of you as a person. Some Amazonian native is technically "American" too, just of the southern variety. The United States are so damn big, there are bound to be large cultural differences across such an expanse. Take pride in your state, region, whatever. The U.S. should be 4 separate countries, minimum, just based on regional differences. NW, SW, NE, SE.....probably more.

    Holding on to the America tag is basically acknowledging that THAT government is YOUR government.....I know I sure as hell want NOTHING to do with it. The system is broken beyond repair...time to start anew.

    There seem to be differing views on what “European” means. In the New World, I believe there is a general sentiment of “ethnic rootlessness” among people with our mindset. There are several factors behind this:

    1. As our New World nation-states have increasingly become economic units with an eclectic, multicultural and multiracial “civic” identity, some of us have felt less intimately attached to our nationality. What is an American? What is an Australian?
    2. There has been a growing disenchantment due to an increasingly rationalised modernity, as well as a disillusionment with the decaying condition of our nations (particularly the decline of tradition and identity, and the growth of materialism and consumerism). What is the point of life? Where do we fit in with the world? Are we just a small cog in a huge globalised machine?
    3. Previously used terms such as “white” have become increasingly ambiguous as perceptions of “whiteness” have shifted. Historically in Australia, “white” was a much more restricted colour metaphor for essentially the people of the British Isles, since they made up the great bulk of the migrants till after the Second World War. Continental Europeans, aside from northern European Protestants, were not normally included under this label.


    This has led to the search for an identity – a way of differentiating and separating oneself from a universalist, globalist world. I see no difference between an American identifying as “Germanic” or “European”. Both are broad “meta-ethnic” labels that encompass multiple ethnicities and sub-races, and both transcend individual cultures, nations and nation-states. The only difference is that one is much broader than the other, but they are both restrictive to some degree.

    Very few Americans are of one ethnicity in contemporary times. Furthermore, many do not exclusively belong to one “meta-ethnic” grouping (such as “Germanic” or “Celtic”, etc.). Therefore it is necessary for some to identify with a broader identity, such as “European American” or “White American”. Both are essentially synonymous, but the former is rigid and unambiguous. The latter is having to become increasingly specific (leading to the creation of terms such as “Non-Hispanic White”), and, at least officially according to the U.S. census, includes Middle Eastern Arabs and Jews.

    If one disagrees with an American calling himself “European”, then we must consider what defines it:

    1. Is “European” defined by geography? If it is, can a man of sub-Saharan African ancestry who is born within the continent of Europe be considered a “European”?
    2. Is “European” defined by race (Europid)? If so, why should a Europid American be excluded?
    3. Is “European” a cultural mindset? If it is, then does a Protestant Swede have more in common with an Eastern Orthdox Greek than a Protestant American of Swedish descent?


    An American and a German may be sub-racially nearly identical, and share a more similar cultural mindset than either would with a Russian. The only thing that would separate them is the Atlantic.

    I think it is better not only for a nation - and this goes for smaller groups too - not to include people with divided loyalties and identities, but also one's own sense of identity - which needs a secure foundation to which to attach itself.

    Primus:
    "The negroes have a folk culture, at least back in Africa where they come from. I've seen some amusing stories about native African visitors to the USA or elsewhere in the west and the reaction can range from amusement to disgust.

    I understand that this type of expression may pale in comparison to European accomplishments, but rap is still a form of sub-culture, even if we don't like it. Therefore it is not accurate to say that it is 'cultureless'. It may be a negative culture compared to ours, but it is a culture none the less.

    Indeed. It's becoming harder and harder to be 'proud' of being American when America itself is being sold down the crapper. There was a time when this name/title actually meant something, actually held some weight but now it's just a generic politico-nationality that could apply to anyone who happens to have been born here or has obtained citizenship.

    There's nothing wrong with looking back across the Atlantic to our roots. In fact, it's healthy--it gives us personal/familial historic context. It sets us in a place in history and at a position in the timeline of the world.

    For better or worst though, we're here now. We're not Europeans, we're Americans. The best thing we can do is to lead full healthy lives, be wholesome, position ourselves away from the hordes and cultivate ourselves here...

    There is a pernicious propaganda against Americans in the rest of the world that causes many misconceptions to be repeated around. many anti-Americans are facilatating this spread with mere intellectual laziness to actually learning the truth of the country, which in fact is one of the last true bastions of Germanic freedom in the world. Does Europe have free speech? Are the average Europeans as free in their lives as the average American? Anti-Americanism is another tool of the Globalist to divide and conquer our folk.

    This is because the values of America at the time of its founding, Anglo-Saxon common law, Anglo-Norman jurisprudence, Greco-Roman history as an example of how not to run a polity, conditional citizenship, public morality (based on Christianity, deism, and so on), etc. have been chucked out of the window and a republic turned into a democracy (i.e. a political freakshow).

    Fire Wolf has aced the political end of that question, I agree with you whole heartedly, it is the globalist agenda that is the greatest future threat to america. They have been chipping away at the our freedoms via the U.N. World court ect...
    And on the personal side of this question, I unashamedly pronounce myself American when out of the country. But in this country its a little different most Americans know there ancestry. In my part of the country full of "latins & latinos both the same to me" .
    Anyway not long into the conversation people like to ask. Whats your nationality ?
    and we all act like were from the "old country" and which nationality is greater at soccer, sailing or who owns the best dairies... I feel blessed to live in this country that my recent ancestors gave up so much, family and homeland, to give us a better prosperous life in this great country. And as I have said before I believe it was the bravest and strongest who left the homelands to build this one. The blood that flows through my veins is as pure as any of my cousins in the old country..
