The advantage of European descendents in North America is their racial and linguistic unity stretching from Alaska to Arkansas, from San Francisco to Boston. This unique phenomenon, coupled with implicit ethnic awareness, still enables America to thrive as a global superpower. White Americans, regardless of their diverse European roots, can freely use the word “nationalism” given that this word has a specific all-White European meaning on the North American continent.
The issue that needs to be addressed, however, is not how the rapid balkanization of America, largely caused by the uncontrolled immigration of non-Europeans, represents a threat for those who have pride in their European ancestory. Rather, the crucial point is how much ethnic and cultural consciousness the remaining two hundred million Americans of European descent are willing to muster. Have they ever tried? Can they? One can sport his European biceps, or take for granted his good European looks, but if historical and cultural memory is missing, European Americans will simply be gradually dispossessed. Unless European Americans develop an explicit sense of European identity and interests with all its necessary cultural and historical corollaries, they will continue their slide toward oblivion. Any American with true pride in his European heritage should be an ardent supporter of Pan-European Ethnic Nationalism, if the Pan-European dream comes true, all American Europeans should join Europe in its fight for survival. One does not need millions of people to start the Pan-European project, but one surely needs a critical mass of Europeans who are well aware of their common ethnic and cultural roots.
