The Great Replacement” of whites is a myth or a conspiracy theory if you oppose it. If you think it’s a good thing, then it’s real and something to be celebrated. Whether it’s real or not apparently depends on what you believe, not the facts. There are many examples of this double standard. However, it’s rare to see a single writer play this verbal game in a single article.

Roger Cohen’s “Trump’s Last Stand for White America” is practically bait for white advocates. Mr. Cohen begins by invoking Unite the Right 2017. He sees “hate-filled faces, those of the white nationalists in Charlottesville chanting, ‘Jews will not replace us.’” It’s hard to take this seriously. State and local officials allowed and arguably encouraged violence in Charlottesville. The violence, property destruction, and threats that we’re seeing across the country dwarfs what happened in 2017. If “white nationalists” were responsible for the ongoing violence, I suspect we’d already be under martial law. Instead, Acting Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli is complaining about political violence on Twitter as if he had no power to do anything about it.

Mr. Cohen says President Trump “has been all about the fear of replacement,” adding, “His has been the stand — I am tempted to say the last stand — of whites against nonwhites.” Mr. Cohen cites Renaud Camus by name. “You have one people,” Mr. Camus said about the Great Replacement, “and in the space of a generation, you have a different people.” This is “grotesque,” Mr. Cohen says. However, soon afterward, Mr. Cohen says replacement “is a good definition of America.” The Great Replacement is happening, the column implies, but it’s bad to protest it because one people being replaced by another is how America is defined.

Mr. Cohen claims that President Trump wants to “freeze a white America,” (if only) but then insists white America is “imaginary,” a “strange blend of Norman Rockwell and ‘Mad Men.’” However, there’s apparently a real political movement built upon this mirage: “Behind ‘America First’ lurks a very un-American credo.”

But just one sentence later we’re out of this verbal hall of mirrors and back in the real world. Mr. Cohen says, “change can be frightening,” and provides examples: “Power has migrated to Asia. America’s recent wars have been unwon. By midcentury, non-Hispanic whites will constitute less than 50 percent of the population. It is frightening to see an industry disappear, like coal in Kentucky.” It seems white America wasn’t imaginary after all, but a real nation that is weakening militarily, economically, and culturally. Are we supposed to celebrate that?

Mr. Cohen doesn’t exactly say we should. Instead, he suggests it is inevitable. We can “opt for the future or burrow self-destructively into some warped fantasy of the past.” Mr. Cohen then appeals to American liberalism’s most enduring “warped fantasy of the past,” the boogeyman Joe McCarthy, and compares President Trump to McCarthy. “American freedom is in decline,” he writes “The freedom to think, because thought depends on truth.”

I agree with Mr. Cohen, but for different reasons. Republican politicians running for re-election may pay a price for criticizing President Trump, but few others do. Taking advantage of familial or professional relationships to smear the president is practically a guarantee of book sales and media coverage. President Trump can’t be much of an autocrat if people get attacked on the streets or lose their jobs for supporting him.

Mr. Cohen is right that our freedom is under attack, but he’s one of the attackers. The New York Times itself is a threat to freedom of speech, regularly running articles undermining the First Amendment and celebrating crackdowns on “disinformation” and “hate speech.”

Mr. Cohen says that he “hold[s] sacred” the “freedom inextricable from the American idea.” He values it with “an unreasonable ardor.” However, didn’t he begin his column by saying that America was defined by change? How can it also be defined by “freedom inextricable from” an idea? Mr. Cohen, a “naturalized citizen,” may have a place to escape to once America is fully engulfed by the Third Word. For him, this may be an intellectual exercise. For most white Americans, this is the only home we have and the stakes are much higher.

Having begun his column by mocking fears of replacement, Mr. Cohen ends with his own version of it. “Time for Americans to look in the mirror,” he says, “and realize their America is irreplaceable if it is lost.” Which America is irreplaceable? America was founded by whites. Whites continue to sustain it. Mr. Cohen’s entire premise is that whites fear losing this America. However, at the conclusion, he invokes an imaginary “America” that will be gone if President Trump is re-elected. This abstract “America” seems to exist within Mr. Cohen’s head and nowhere else.

Of course, Mr. Cohen is again right for the wrong reasons. Our country is irreplaceable if lost. That’s because a nation isn’t an idea, but a people. A nation can recover from pandemics, recessions, and military defeat but it cannot survive racial death. The only real America that has ever existed is “white America.” If we lose that, we lose the country.

Mr. Cohen may be taunting us about white America’s “last stand.” However, I suspect what he’s really afraid of is that this isn’t the end, but the beginning. White America is becoming racially aware and more willing to fight back. This isn’t our last stand, but the first step towards what Sam Francis called the “reconquest of the United States.” That will continue whether President Trump is re-elected or not.

    Unite the Right should have replaced the dumbfuck torches with portable monitors and speakers with video footage of Barbara Lerner Spectre and Noel Ignatiev saying their vile jew shit. The moment you can prove jews are up to no good is the moment that cameras stop rolling.

    Right, there’s no “Great Replacement” as Joe Biden is willing to attest:

    Biden 2015: “Folks like me who are Caucasian of European descent — for the first time in 2017 we’ll be an absolute minority in the United States of America,” “Absolutely minority. Fewer than 50 percent of the people in America, from then and on, will be white European stock. That’s not a bad thing. That’s a source of our strength.”

    Now, they want another debate where foreign policy issues will be excluded and the libs who moderate the debate can turn off the mic. You can bet they will turn off the mic on Trump all the time and only Biden will be allowed to lie. He has already been given the fake questions of the debate and he will simply push a button and his pretaped answer will be played out.

    Trump is stupid to go to such a debate, as they will corner him with fake left-wing questions, such as why don’t you condemn the “right wing terrorists” who looted Portland and Minnesota, etc. and turn off the mic as soon as he answers. Btw, most debates and townhalls are rigged by the lib-barbarians, who are worse than animals.

    Pat Buchanan, Rush Limbaugh, Gregory, you all please tell Trump NOT to go to such a fake debate. Only Rush Limbaugh or Tucker should be allowed to moderate this debate as the last one was moderated by a lib-barbarian.

    AmRen’s comment section is run by Disqus which is itself run by the Zeta Group, a KIKE-controlled company. If you’re allowing JEWS to determine what can and cannot be said on your website, then you are KIKE SHILLS. And every time UnzReview republishes one of AmRen’s articles, Ron loses more credibility.

  6. If it comes to pass, I hope the last based white man with nuclear launch codes remembers to turn the lights off (for the entire planet) on his way out.

    First barrage goes to Israel, please.

    We already know how many rockets their (our) defense system can handle at a time. Triple that number just in case. We’ll still have enough to glass the rest of the planet too.

  7. To Hell with Mr. Cohen and all his brethren. Those soulless parasites are the plague of humanity. That is why they have been exiled from nearly every place they have settled, for any length of time, since the beginning of time. If they have any loyalties at all, they lie only with others like them, and to their God Lucifer.

    Biden is without a doubt the most corrupt…brainless, immoral politician in the US, and that is not easy to achieve.

  10. The Great Replacement Isn’t Happening. It’s Good That It Is

    So let’s call it The Glorious Replacement.

  11. @Caesy

    Other than dates or other hard data, isn’t everything in Wiki “at odds with the facts at hand” or “deliberately misleading”?

  12. The ‘white genocide’ and ‘great replacement’ conspiracy theory is easily disproven if you spent 1 minute looking a population statistics. For countries with census data, self-identified ‘white people’ are not declining in number but increasing. For example, UK:

    2001 census
    White British

    2011 census
    White British

    So for the last census data, ‘White British’ increased by well over a million people.

    How can there be replacement or genocide if there is population growth?

    “Leftist Jew in NYSlimes hates YT and wants them replaced/dead and is willing to lie about it or do whatever it takes to accomplish same.” — How is that instead?

  14. @Oliver D. Smith

    It might be time for an effective eugenics programme.
    As my favourite uncle used to say ‘quality over quantity’.

  15. Getaclue says:
    @Oliver D. Smith

    How many of those are men “self identified” as women? Are Jews self identifying as the hated YT or something else? “Whole lot o’ self identifying goin’ on….”

    Because the proportion of the population that is White British is decreasing. (What was it in 1950?) And there’s nothing stopping it decreasing all the way to zero percent (via intermixture and a failure to reproduce white offspring). Thus we have replacement. Specifically, race-replacement.

    • Agree: BuelahMan
  17. The self-identified white population in Western countries is decreasing relative to the non-white population as a whole, but by itself it is actually increasing in UK, US and every other major Western country in terms of numbers. You can clearly see this by looking at the census data.

    US census

    White American
    2000 211,460,626
    2010 223,553,265
    2018 234,904,818 (estimate US Census Bureau.)

    – So there was an increase in more than 10-million self-identified ‘White Americans’ from 2010-2018. You’re insane or trolling if you think this is ‘genocide’ or ‘replacement’. Mostly it is 8chan/Daily Stormer trolls who promote this nonsense conspiracy theory.

    All you need to know.

    You are probably dealing with an apparatchik of some ‘anti-racism’ outfit.

    Oxford University demographer David Coleman predicted in 2013 that Brits (excluding aliens) will become a minority in their own land in 2066 if current immigration levels continue.

    Across the pond William H. Frey says non-Hispanic Whites will suffer the same fate in 2045. He is the author of Diversity Explosion: How New Racial Demographics are Remaking America.

    Local people in these countries were never consulted over this demographic shift.

    Who cares , even if whites were 1 billion in usa but the non whites 100 billion our relative strenght would be minimal

    And thats whats happening , go trolling somewhere else

    @Oliver D. Smith

    Your data is too old and coarse. White birth rates have been falling for the past few years while mortality has been increasing. The last birth-rate stats were released just a few days ago and there was an article about that on Unz, it even made the top spot, if I remember correctly.

    The white non-Hispanic fertility rate is now at 1.7 and falling every year – this by itself guarantees falling white population in absolute terms! Keep in mind that a rate of 2.1 is necessary to maintain a steady population! Then the large non-white immigration makes matters much worse in relative terms.

    Your stats might also suffer from the problem of not separating Hispanics from whites, as is customary these days in the stats meant to confuse. Check your source for the numbers on white non-Hispanics for the real stats.

    The white non-Hispanic fertility rate is now at 1.7 and falling every year – this by itself guarantees falling white population in absolute terms!

    It really doesn’t. South Korea’s population is still increasing despite a fertility rate of 0.92 (under 1) and is projected to grow until 2035. The fact the US white non-Hispanic fertility rate is 1.7 doesn’t necessarily equate to population shrinking currently because of population momentum and increased longevity (people on average are living longer) which explains why a population like South Korea’s can continue to grow for decades.

    From the data I’ve seen – for the first time in 2016 there were more non-Hispanic white deaths than births. But is there any recent population data that shows for 2017-2019 this trend continued, with more deaths than births? I’ve not seen any. Regardless, even if there have been more non-Hispanic deaths than births continuous since 2016 – the white population hasn’t shrunk because of net-migration – this means natural decrease is offset by immigration. This is clearly shown in the link for 2016 data: “In seventeen of the twenty-six states with white natural decreases, the white population diminished overall between 2015 and 2016.” So the white population only decreased in 17/51 states and there was overall population growth.

  23. Shame the author did not elect to go through Cohen’s wuite common Zionist hypocrisy.

    The man is another Jewish ethnonationalist, condemning all other nationalisms because at root, Judaism is a megalomaniacal, ethnosupremacist cult.
