I first came across this blog some years ago. It was started in 2010, according to the blogger’s profile. Unfortunately it appears the blog hasn’t been updated since.
The first post contains a statement on the purpose of the blog.
‘In order to create a free and independent Republic of New England, we call on all English Americans to join in the formation of a representative constitutional Republic of New England, representing government of the English people, by the English people and for the English people.
We stand for preserving the English people from biological and cultural extinction.
The founding fathers of the United States would be far closer to being English secessionists than to any of the other political groups of today.
The men who drafted the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution were all English. They shared a common ethnocultural background, and none of them wanted racial mixing.
In order to accomplish these goals, all ties relating to the domination of New England by the multicult regime in Washington should be abandoned, as soon possible and forever.
It is absolutely essential to the cause of freedom, prosperity and individual liberty of the English people in America.
A country just for English Americans!”
Sad to say that idea is now more far-fetched, probably, than it was when first posted.
I wish it were otherwise, and I won’t say it could ‘never’ happen. Never say never, especially in this fast-changing world in which it seems we can’t be sure what tomorrow will bring.
Still, the prospect of a homeland for English-Americans in New England seems very remote now, as the demographics of that region seem to be very much inimical to the idea. As I’ve pointed out many times on certain blogs where people erroneously claim that New England is still the home of WASPs, under WASP dominance, the fact is that Anglo-Saxon Americans are now a minority throughout most of the region, except perhaps in the more remote rural areas. If we look at the map contained in the first post on that blog, which was from 2000, we see that some remote rural locales had from 22.8 – 45.6% English descent. Now, some 16+ years later I would guess those percentages are reduced, what with the older generations dying (mostly English-descended people in the older age groups) and the influx of people from the teeming urban areas of New England: Boston, New Haven, or wherever. I have heard that the ‘refugees’ from the multicult cities are often affluent Jews as well as upper-middle-class to wealthy ethnic Americans who dominate the cities there: Irish-Americans, Italians, etc. Those groups are historically the ones who displaced many of the old-stock English-Americans starting in the 19th century.
As historian Samuel Adams Drake opined (in 1871) about living conditions in North Square:
“Nowhere in Boston has Father Time wrought such ruthless changes, as in this highly respectable quarter, now swarming with Italians in every dirty nook and corner. In truth, it is hard to believe the evidence of our own senses, though the fumes of garlic are sufficiently convincing. Past and Present confront each other here with a stare of blank amazement, in the humble Revere homestead, on one side, and the pretentious Hotel Italy on the other; nor do those among us, who [know] something of its vanished prestige, feel at all home in a place where our own mother-tongue no longer serves us.”
So the colonial stock English Americans were among the first to experience ethnic cleansing, and many left the region to go westward, as did my New England ancestors and many on the collateral lines of my family as well. Still, there is this persistent belief that there is a WASP aristocracy lording it over an Anglo-majority New England.
Maybe in some far reaches of New England there are English-descended populations whose numbers haven’t dwindled drastically. But the cities are multicultural, and we’ve all read of how even smaller cities like Lewiston, Maine and even Houlton, Maine (which was settled by my Houlton ancestors) are now the home of burgeoning Somali colonies.
Still, I am not trying to throw cold water on the blogger’s proposal. If only it could be reality, but there is the reality that English-Americans are fewer with each year, and with each new ‘immigrant’ or ‘refugee’ colony being seeded in the erstwhile United States.
The blog has a post about the Immigration Act of 1924, and that’s something that we need to be more aware of. Our forefathers did try to stem the wave of immigration that could have made this country minority-White long ago, if unstopped. They did make a brave effort, and this must be remembered as the anti-WASP crowd repeatedly charges Anglo-Saxon Americans with doing ”nothing” to preserve this country. Unfortunately the persistence and duplicity of the one-worlders and social engineers got the better of them. But credit where due: let’s repeat the words of Colorado Rep. William Vaile, who said, during the hearings:
“What we do claim is that the northern European and particularly Anglo-Saxons made this country. Oh, yes; the others helped. But… [t]hey came to this country because it was already made as an Anglo-Saxon commonwealth. They added to it, they often enriched it, but they did not make it, and they have not yet greatly changed it.
“We are determined that they shall not…It is a good country. It suits us. And what we assert is that we are not going to surrender it to somebody else or allow other people, no matter what their merits, to make it something different. If there is any changing to be done, we will do it ourselves.” [Cong. Rec., April 8, 1924, 5922]
Added emphasis is mine.
Rep. Vaile was blessed in that he didn’t live to see this country ‘greatly changed,’ and not by our doing.
