Novelist Harold A. Covington insists the Pacific Northwest is the white man’s last stand in North America
The Washington Post has an interesting article about the recent fad of survivalists, constitutionalists, and assorted doomsday preppers buying up land and relocating to the inland Pacific Northwest, specifically Idaho:
“In Hayden Idaho, Don and Jonna Bradway recently cashed out of the stock market and invested in gold and silver. They have stockpiled food and ammunition in the event of a total economic collapse or some other calamity commonly known around here as “The End of the World As We Know It” or “SHTF” — the day something hits the fan.
The Bradways fled California, a state they said is run by “leftists and non-Constitutionalists and anti-freedom people,” and settled on several wooded acres of north Idaho five years ago. They live among like-minded conservative neighbors, host Monday night Bible study around their fire pit, hike in the mountains and fish from their boat. They melt lead to make their own bullets for sport shooting and hunting — or to defend themselves against marauders in a world-ending cataclysm.
“I’m not paranoid, I’m really not,” said Bradway, 68, a cheerful Army veteran with a bushy handlebar mustache who favors Hawaiian shirts. “But we’re prepared. Anybody who knows us knows that Don and Jonna are prepared if and when it hits the fan.”
The Bradways are among the vanguard moving to an area of the Pacific Northwest known as the American Redoubt, a term coined in 2011 by survivalist author and blogger James Wesley, Rawles (the comma is deliberate) to describe a settlement of the God-fearing in a lightly populated territory that includes Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and the eastern parts of Washington and Oregon.
Those migrating to the Redoubt are some of the most motivated members of what is known as the prepper movement, which advocates readiness and self-reliance in man-made or natural disasters that could create instability for years. It’s scenario-planning that is gaining adherents and becoming mainstream in what Redoubt preppers described as an era of fear and uncertainty.”
Further northwest, in Seattle, longtime racial-vanguardist and writer Harold A. Covington has been advocating, for the last 15 years or so, for white Americans to migrate to the tri-state Pacific Northwest, in the hopes that a white critical-mass will actuate some sort of catalyst that will establish conditions favorable to the creation of a sovereign white ethnostate.
Covington’s group, the Northwest Front, is explicitely racial in it’s aims and criteria. The prospective ethnostate they seek would be exclusively for unmixed, non-jewish white people. Conversely, the migrants to the so-called American Redoubt, while undoubtedly aware of the rising demographic floodwaters in America, insist that their reasons for isolating themselves from the rest of the country, aren’t racial:
“Those interviewed in the American Redoubt insisted they are not trying to segregate themselves by race. And while the Aryan Nations white supremacist group was headquartered near Hayden Lake in the 1980s and 1990s, Rawles has described the Redoubt movement as “anti-racist” and said like-minded folks of all races are welcome.
Walsh, the real estate agent, said he saw far more racism in Detroit, where he was raised, than in north Idaho.
“Here, a black person, they’re a novelty,” Walsh said. “You’ll see people walk up to black people here sometimes and just talk to them because they’ve never spoken to a black person before. In terms of them walking around [saying racist things], you never see it.”
Is that right? And yet, you don’t see these people buying cheap, abundant, fertile land in Africa…
Harold Covington wrote a series of fiction novels about a guerilla war in the Pacific Northwest, which culminates in the birth of a white republic where the states of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho once stood. There are 5 of them, but if you’re only going to read one, read The Brigade.
And on a somewhat related note, there is a trilogy of sci-fi novels written by Blake Crouch — Pines, Wayward, and The Last Town — which take place in Idaho, and although maybe not intentionally, they similarly premise life in the distant future, in a settlement that serves as a refuge for the last of humankind, surrounded by a decayed world inhabited by hostile organisms. (Crouch’s novels were made into a TV series called Wayward Pines, which you can watch on Youtube or Hulu)
My own opinion on northwest migration, in whatever form or for whichever reason, is that I have no opinion. I personally have no plans to migrate anywhere, but neither do I disuade any white person from doing what they feel they have to do to keep their family safe. And if that means migrating to a community of like-minded racial kindred in Idaho, that I respect that decision as well-intentioned.
What I can say with certainty, is that what passes for business as usual in America today, cannot go on indefinitely, and I believe it will come to an abrupt and violent end in the coming years. But whether it is the Idaho wilderness, or some county in the South, or some old Rust Belt city around the Great Lakes, no part of this country is going to be untouched by what is bearing down on us.
So maybe this recent Northwest ‘buzz’ is just a case of cyclical, election-year hysteria, or perhaps there is some collective alignment of white consciousness on an instictual level, not unlike any threatened species flocking togethor and searching for a more hospitable environment. Whatever it is, I’ll leave the question to any commenters to debate:
Is the Pacific Northwest, white peoples ‘Ark’ in the coming Flood of Mud?
