There was a book written once by the Anglo-Argentine writer, W.H. Hudson, titled “Far Away and Long Ago,” about his memories of life growing up on the “Pampas” of Argentina. I think this title could be appropriate for my memories of visits to Ocala, Florida in the mid to late Fifties when I was a boy growing up in Southern California.
The family on my father’s side in Ocala came from what rightly could be termed the Southern aristocracy in its roots and traditions, while my mother’s side was lower-middle class Scotch-Irish background from South Carolina, the “salt of the earth.” I visited Ocala, then only a small town in central Florida of about 10,000 people, where my uncle lived when I was ten years old. It was a lot different than where I was growing up in Santa Barbara, California since in Florida in 1957, as in most of the South still, legal segregation of the races was still in place.
I visited a segregated, all white school where other elementary school students were attending, went to the whites only public swimming pool and attended a movie theater where seating for whites and blacks was separate as well. However, what impressed me the most was the lack of importance given to social class differences among whites themselves.
For example, I recall an evening at a lakeside cottage of my uncle’s family, who were fairly wealthy, where at the get-together there was the local sheriff as well. He showed all present a card with a picture of Martin Luther King along with a caption, “Martin Luther Coon,” and all had a few laughs about this. In essence, all the whites, regardless of social class background, had a stake in the system in the South. While some whites were clearly wealthier than others, white racial identity trumped any socio-economic factors. There was a special category of “poor white trash,” for persons or families who were lazy, alcoholic or indigent, but this could be termed the “underclass” in Sociological terminology.
My theory of how this sense of equality came about historically is that at the end of the Civil War, due to the collapse of the Southern economy and the end of the plantation system, former white aristocrats and poorer whites who had fought together in battle after battle in the Civil War remained united during the period of Reconstruction. They suffered together under white disenfranchisement, military occupation by Northern armies, and looting of the civil government by Scalawags, Carpetbaggers and former slaves who were manipulated by corrupt politicians. When all of this ended with the removal of Federal troops in 1876, the sense of unity among whites, regardless of social status, continued through the 1950’s during the period of legal segregation established under the so-called “Jim Crow” laws.
But as part of the extreme makeover imposed by Z.O.G. on the South following the end of World War II and during the Jewish directed Civil Rights Movement, social cleavages appeared and continued to widen among whites themselves in the South over the next several decades. Academies appeared in the initial years of school desegregation in the late Fifties and early Sixties which allowed segregated schooling to continue, but only for those middle class whites whose families could afford to pay the tuition. So while the South still had less social class divisions among whites than in other parts of the country, southern society gradually became more like that of the rest of the U.S. with each passing year.
Those of us in the Racial Right always need to hearken back to the “Far Away and Long Ago” period of the South that pretty much ended by the late Sixties. We are a threatened white tribe, a band of brothers and sisters who need to fight against a common enemy of all our people, the Zionist power structure which wants to do away with all of us, regardless of our social class position, in the Mestizo and Mulatto future that it sees to be in the best interest for Jewish survival. This is a new Civil War, even more dangerous because it does not involve clear front lines and enemy artillery attacks, and at this point all of us whites are in this together, regardless of educational attainments or how much wealth each person may or may not have.
