However, there are White Americans who, within the confines of legality, have long since gone beyond signing petitions. Two leading White secessionist movements have emerged and are organizing even as I type. These movements are the Northwest Front, shepherded by Harold Covington, and the Dixie Republic, promoted by Occidental Dissent webmaster Hunter Wallace (who now openly identifies himself under his real name of Brad Griffin). In this VNN Forum thread discussing a November 19th debate to take place between Wallace and VNN webmaster Alex Linder, Wallace finally and coherently defines his Dixie Republic, which facilitates a comparison of the two movements. Contrary to what I believed, the proposed Dixie Republic will be racially nationalist, meaning for Whites only, rather than racially populist, which would mean merely a White majority. Up until now, Hunter Wallace has not, in my opinion, clearly defined the parameters of his proposed Dixie Republic.
Northwest Republic Premise: The Northwest Republic is to be an independent and sovereign White nation in the Pacific Northwest. Its boundaries have been tentatively set to include the present states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, as well as western Montana. In his novels, Covington implies that Wyoming could also be included, but that's not an initial goal.
Dixie Republic Premise: In this post, Hunter Wallace states "In the Republic of Dixie, Southern Whites would evolve into a European-style ethnic group, the 'Dixians'. The new Southern ethnostate would be based on all the ingredients of a successful European nation: a common ethnicity, a common culture, a common religion, and a common history". However, Wallace has yet to establish even tentative boundaries; existing racial composition of the region will influence where projected boundaries might be established.
Northwest Republic Current Demographics: The proposed Northwest Republic is majority White in all areas, although Sea-Tac and Portland are degenerating into multicultural cesspools. Non-White populations appear to be compact and manageable enough for successful disposition. Screenshots of maps from 2000 provided below define the distribution:
|Map of Black distribution; darker areas are 5.3 percent or more Black|
|Map of Hispanic distribution; light green 6.0 to 17.4 percent Hispanic, darker green 17.4 to 34.7 percent, and darkest green over 34.7 percent|
Dixie Republic Current Demographics: Upper Dixie is majority White, but is hemmed in and blocked from the sea to the south and east by large Black populations. Hispanic populations also increasing. These non-White populations appear too numerous for successful disposition. Screenshots of maps from 2000 provided below define the distribution:
|Map of Black distribution; darkest areas over 48.8 percent Black|
|Map of Hispanic distribution; light green areas 6.0 percent or more|
The maps show that it would be easier to establish the Northwest Republic in its entirety than a Dixie Republic. Opposition to a Northwest Republic would be provided mostly by the federal government, while opposition to a Dixie Republic would be provided by both the federal government and non-Whites in the area. Of course, Jews and whiggers would also provide local opposition in both areas. Thus the only viable area for a Dixie Republic would encompass Tennessee, western North Carolina, southwestern Virginia, and extreme northern Alabama and Georgia. Lack of sea access could hinder the economic evolution of a Dixie Republic. Facilitating the establishment of both republics would be the establishment of Pioneer Little Europe (PLE) communities, which could grow like a thousand points of light and eventually link up to form a network within each republic. Many PLE communities may already exist within the projected Dixie Republic, but simply don't realize that they're PLE communities yet.
Northwest Republic Geographic Defensibility: The Bitterroot Mountains to the east and the Cascades to the west provide natural barriers to restrict federal opposition. The Snake and Columbia Rivers also exist as major water barriers. Major federal military power centers to be co-opted or neutralized are relatively few, but include Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Fairchild AFB, Mountain Home AFB, plus some naval installations along Puget Sound. To the east, military operations against the Northwest Republic could be launched from Malmstrom AFB near Great Falls, Montana, and to the south, Hill AFB in northern Utah could be used by the feds to stage attacks, so both must be considered.
Dixie Republic Geographic Defensibility: The Great Smokies and the Appalachians provide a useful land barrier, while the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers provide good water barriers. The Mississippi River is the major water barrier to the west. However, there are numerous major federal military power centers to be co-opted and neutralized, to include Forts Benning, Gordon, and Stewart in Georgia, as well as Eglin AFB and Tyndall AFB in Florida and Pope AFB and Seymour Johnson AFB in North Carolina. Airborne troops could stage from Ft. Campbell, Kentucky and Ft. Bragg, North Carolina. In fact, the number and variety of military installations in the region may be sufficient to crush a Dixie Republic before it could ever get off the ground, unless there was a catastrophic breakdown of discipline within military ranks.
The Bottom Line: The Northwest Republic appears to be a more viable option and has a greater chance of succeeding than a Dixie Republic. This does not mean a Dixie Republic could not be established; it simply means that it would be a tougher job and would require a larger variety of favorable external variables. What Hunter Wallace ought to do is consider establishing a separate website dedicated only to the Dixie Republic -- organize it the same way Harold Covington organized the Northwest Front website.
