    The Yankee Question - the Culture of New England

    Who Are The Yankees?

    Okay, so maybe a bit of a weird title but everyone already knows what the Jewish Question is and this thread is meant to discuss an ethnic group with similar political inclinations. First, since Americans have a unique ability to create weird definitions, it's important to say what a Yankee actually is:

    Yankees are an ethnic group consisting of the descendants of religious radicals who settled in coastal New England during the 17th & 18th centuries. During the early 1800s their descendants also settled along the West Coast and played a key role in creating that region's culture.
    Now before someone says 'there are no Yankees anymore' - here's genetic proof that these people are still a distinctive tribe:
    White Americans are not homogenous - we are several different ethnic blocs. The map clearly shows this and we can see that ethnic Yankees (the 'Northeast and Utah' category) live primarily in New England and Michigan. They also played a key role in settling some of the Western states.


    Yankee Culture


    Now, I think it's interesting to point out that these people's entire culture - everything they developed - was influenced by the fact that they were banished from Europe. They saw themselves as the victims of religious oppression and, for that reason, they sympathized with other perceived 'victim groups.' And this mentality has existed for hundreds of years.

    We see it in the fact that by the 1840s not a single New England state banned miscegenation:



    It's visible in the way educated Southerners described their rivals during the Civil War:




    The music produced & sung by Yankees during the Civil War also emphasizes leftist ideas:




    (John Brown was a White Northerner who attempted to create a slave rebellion across the South,
    he was considered a hero in the northeast and a fool / enemy in the South).


    It was also this incredibly tolerant & victim centered culture which drew massive numbers of Jews to New England:


    There's so much more that I could write about this, but for now all I can say is that if you want to learn more about America's cultural origins then you should read Colin Woodard's books.

    What I see from personal observations is that Yankees either believe the rest of the country acts like them or they try and impose their ideas on the whole of America. However their liberalism and self-righteousness is becoming their downfall. Look at the major New England cities, they are the most racially mixed places in America. True White flight has taken place, but the racial others are moving into the small towns as well. It would not hurt if New England succeeded from the rest of America, only in the fact that the Yankees would not want to live in their own mess and would taint the rest of the country.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.
