It seems obvious that North and West Europeans made America great just from comparing USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, North and West Europe, with the rest of the world.
Second wave, was when everything started to go wrong:
The second wave of European Americans arrived from the mid-1890s to the 1920s, mainly from Southern, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as Ireland. This wave included Irish, Italians, Greeks, Hungarians, Portuguese, Spaniards, Romanians, Ukrainians, Russians, Poles and other Slavs. With large numbers of immigrants from Mexico, Spanish Caribbean, and South and Central America, White Hispanics have increased to 8% of the US population, and Texas, California, New York, and Florida are important centers for them.
Here we see immigrants like we see immigrants today, people from sh-thole countries mainly coming to take advantage of what North and West Europeans has created. Similar to what we see in North and West Europe today, with millions of immigrants from Eastern Europe. Even though their countries have been getting economic aid, since the collapse of the Eastern Bloc.
Before 1881, the vast majority of immigrants, almost 86% of the total, arrived from northwest Europe, principally Great Britain, Ireland, Germany, and Scandinavia. The years between 1881 and 1893 the pattern shifted, in the sources of U.S. “New immigration”. Between 1894 and 1914, immigrants from southern, central, and eastern Europe accounted for 69% of the total. Prior to 1960, the overwhelming majority came from Europe or of European descent from Canada. The shift in European immigration has been in decline since the mid-20th century, with 75.0% of the total foreign-born population born in Europe compared to 12.1% recorded in the 2010 census.
They tried to prevent it from happening!
Prior to 1965, policies such as the national origins formula limited immigration and naturalization opportunities for people from areas outside Western Europe. Exclusion laws enacted as early as the 1880s generally prohibited or severely restricted immigration from Asia, and quota laws enacted in the 1920s curtailed Eastern European immigration. The civil rights movement led to the replacement of these ethnic quotas with per-country limits. Since then, the number of first-generation immigrants living in the United States has quadrupled.
The expulsion of Eastern European Germans resulted in the largest exchange of population in European history. It ended close to 1,000 years of German presence in areas now considered to be parts of Poland, the Czech Republic, Russia and other Eastern European states, forever changing the ethnic face of Europe. Alone, the expulsion of millions of Prussian Germans from their native land between 1944 and 1947 was accomplished in an immensely sinister jewish manner, yet it is an event that has been ignored, minimized or rationalized by the jewish mainstream media.
Senator Homer Capehart’s remarks to the US Senate on February 5, 1946:
“Since the end of the war about 3,000,000 people, mostly women and children and over-aged men, have been killed in Eastern Germany and south-eastern Europe; about 15,000,000 people have been deported or had to flee their homesteads and are on the road. About 25% of these people, over 3,000,000 have perished. About 4,000,000 men and women have been deported to Eastern Europe as slaves. It seems that the elimination of the German population of Eastern Europe – at least 15,000,000 people – was planned in accordance with decisions made at Yalta. Churchill had said to Mikolakczyk when the latter protested during the negotiations to Moscow against forcing Poland to incorporate eastern Germany; ‘Don’t mind the five or more million Germans. Stalin will see to them. You will have no trouble with them; they will cease to exist.’”
“The fact can no longer be suppressed, namely, the fact that it has been and continues to be, the deliberate policy of a confidential and conspiratorial clique within the policy-making circles of this government to draw and quarter a nation now reduced to abject misery…”
“In this process this clique, like a pack of hyenas struggling over the bloody entrails of a corpse, and inspired by a sadistic and fanatic hatred, are determined to destroy the German nation and the German people, no matter what the consequences…”
“At Potsdam the representatives of the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Socialist Republics solemnly signed the following declaration of principles and purposes: ‘It is not the intention of the Allies to destroy or enslave the German people.’ Mr. President, the cynical and savage repudiation of these solemn declarations which has resulted in a major catastrophe, cannot be explained in terms of ignorance or incompetence. This repudiation, not only of the Potsdam Declaration, but also of every law of God and men, has been deliberately engineered with such a malevolent cunning, and with such diabolic skill, that the American people themselves have been caught in an international death trap…”
“For nine months now this administration has been carrying on a deliberate policy of mass starvation without any distinction between the innocent and the helpless and the guilty alike…”
“The first issue has been and continues to be merely humanitarian. This vicious clique within this administration that has been responsible for the policies and practices which have made a madhouse of central Europe has not only betrayed our American principles, but they have betrayed the GI’s who have suffered and died, and they continue to betray the American GIs who have to continue their dirty work for them…”
“The second issue that is involved is the effect this tragedy in Germany has already had on the other European countries. Those who have been responsible for this deliberate destruction of the German state and this criminal mass starvation of the German people have been so zealous in their hatred that all other interests and concerns have been subordinated to this one obsession of revenge. In order to accomplish this it mattered not if the liberated countries in Europe suffered and starved. To this point this clique of conspirators have addressed themselves: ‘Germany is to be destroyed. What happens to other countries of Europe in the process is of secondary importance.’”

The Base is an accelerationist, neo-Nazi white separatist paramilitary hate group, formed in 2018 and active in at least the United States, Canada, Australia and South Africa. The group advocates the formation of white ethnostates, a goal which is to be achieved through terrorism and the violent overthrow of existing governments. It organizes “race war preppers” and operates “hate camps”.
The Base has recruited by using iFunny, a Russian meme website.
Rumor has it, that the leader of the Base is a agent who properly work for FBI or Homeland Security.
Rinaldo Nazzaro a Russian married, Jewish looking leader of the Base (picture below).
The Base also have a Jordanian member named Yousef O. Barasneh.
The Atomwaffen Division (Atomwaffen meaning “nuclear weapons” in German) is a neo-Nazi terrorist network. Formed in 2015 and based in the Southern United States, it has since expanded across the United States and into the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, the Baltic states and other European countries. The group is part of the alt-right, although the group rejects the label and is considered extreme even within that movement. It is listed as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC).
Members of the Atomwaffen Division have been held responsible for a number of murders, planned terrorist attacks, as well as other criminal actions.
Some members of the group also sympathize with the Salafi and jihadist forms of Islam. Atomwaffen Division’s founder, Brandon Russell, is alleged to have described Omar Mateen, who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and perpetrated the Orlando nightclub shooting, as “a hero”. The group also idolizes Osama bin Laden in its propaganda and considers “the culture of martyrdom and insurgency” within al Qaeda and the Taliban as something which should be emulated. Samuel Woodward also articulated a positive view of Islam, saying that he preferred ISIL to multiculturalism and liberalism and cited Julius Evola, Francis Parker Yockey and George Lincoln Rockwell as having been sympathetic towards Islam as well. He also said that Arthurs believed that Islamophobia was being used to promote White Genocide by Neocons.
United Kingdom (Sonnenkrieg Division)
The Sonnenkrieg Division (“Sonnenkrieg” German for “Sun war”) is a neo-Nazi group that is the United Kingdom-based branch of the Atomwaffen Division, and it maintains its links to the Atomwaffen Division by e-mails and chat room discussions as well as by its use of similar names and its distribution of similar propaganda. It surfaced in December 2018, when it was revealed that members of the group had written on the group’s Discord server that Prince Harry was a “race traitor” who should be shot for marrying Meghan Markle, who is of mixed race; that police officers should be raped and killed; and that white women who date non-whites should be hanged. At its formation in 2018 the group was thought to have had 10-15 members in the UK and Europe, and some suspected members are thought to have been involved in a previous neo-Nazi group, the System Resistance Network (one of the aliases of National Action), which was linked to various acts of racial violence and arson in the UK. The BBC revealed that the leaders of the group were Andrew Dymock, 21, and Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18.
Police arrested three suspected members of the Sonnenkrieg Division in early December 2018 as part of an “ongoing investigation into extreme right-wing activity”. MI5, the British domestic intelligence agency, took the lead in the government’s monitoring of far-right terrorism.
On June 18, 2019 Sonnenkrieg members Dunn-Koczorowski and Michal Szewczuk, 19, were jailed for terrorism offences. According to the prosecutor the men promoted “engaging in a “total attack” on the system”, Dunn-Koczorowski having proclaimed “terror is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death” and were intent on action. Furthermore, the group was influenced by James Mason who “may well represent the most violent, revolutionary and potentially terroristic expression of right-wing extremism current today”. Dunn-Koczorowski was sentenced to 18 months in detention for encouraging terrorism, and Szewczuk was sentenced to four years in prison for encouraging terrorism and possessing documents that are useful to a terrorist, such as bomb-making instructions.
According to British anti-fascists, Sonnenkrieg Division has been influenced by the Order of Nine Angles and it is more extreme and potentially more violent than National Action. Hope not Hate‘s annual “State of Hate” report stated that: “some members have also carried out some of these satanic fantasies and allegations of rape and imprisonment against their own members are circulating.” Sonnenkrieg Division members had shared videos of one female supporter being tortured and scored with a knife by one of the group’s male members. The private messages which belonged to Sonnenkrieg Division and were acquired by the police included footage of the members of the group verbally abusing women and mutilating them, such as a picture of a naked girl with a swastika and runic symbols cut into her body.
On February 20, 2019 Jacek Tchorzewski, 18, was stopped by the counter terrorism unit at the Luton airport. He was arrested on suspicion of terror offences, and the police uncovered “an enormous amount” of manuals on how to make weapons and explosives and Nazi propaganda. In court it was heard Tchorzewski had told it was “his dream” to commit a terrorist attack and he intended to smuggle firearms and explosives from Germany for this purpose. Also presented was a notebook from his prison cell where he had written: “Let’s fill our hearts with terror and London’s streets with blood.” Commander Richard Smith, the head of the counter terrorism unit stated that Tchorzewski was connected to the Sonnenkrieg Division. Judge Anuja Dhir said Tchorzewski was a “deeply entrenched neo-Nazi with an interest in Satanism and occult practices” and an “offender of particular concern” and on September 20, 2019 Tchorzewski was handed a sentence of four years for terrorism offences at the Old Bailey.
On December 4 2019, Andrew Dymock was arrested and charged with 15 terror offenses, including encouraging terrorism and raising funds for a terrorist group. He was first arrested in June 2018 at Gatwick Airport on his way to the United States. Dymock was questioned over alleged sexual offences against a teenage girl, in connection to the earlier knife attacks on women.
In February 2020, Sonnenkrieg Division became the second far-right group to be banned as a terrorist organization after National Action.
“The BBC revealed that the leaders of the group were Andrew Dymock, 21, and Oskar Dunn-Koczorowski, 18.”
“On June 18, 2019 Sonnenkrieg members Dunn-Koczorowski and Michal Szewczuk, 19, were jailed for terrorism offences.”
20-year-old Benjamin Bogard was arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in February 2019 after the FBI received a tip that Bogard might be planning a terrorist attack.
He was arrested on charges of possession of child pornography after the authorities uncovered videos of young girls being raped on his phone during the investigation. The FBI decided to arrest him because it appeared that Bogard was “mobilizing for violence.”
FBI Special Agent Christopher Combs stated that the evidence “demonstrated the defendant’s fixation with committing barbaric and inhumane acts of violence against children and others”. Bogard was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison for sex crimes.
An 18-year-old member, Devon Arthurs, of Tampa Palms, Florida, converted to Islam and described himself as a “Salafist National Socialist.” In May 2017, Arthurs was accused of killing two of his roommates and fellow Atomwaffen Division members in retaliation after they ridiculed his conversion. Arthurs was arrested following a hostage situation, during which he allegedly told police that he shot 22-year-old Jeremy Himmelman and 18-year-old Andrew Oneschuk earlier that day. In 2018, following competency evaluations by two court-appointed experts (a neuropsychologist and a psychologist), Arthurs was ruled incompetent to stand trial. He spent more than a year at the Florida State Hospital where he received treatment to make him competent to stand trial. Arthurs is currently facing two counts of first-degree murder in addition to kidnapping and firearms charges. In December 2019, several experts testified that Arthurs suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder among other conditions, experiences hallucinations and believes he can communicate with the dead. It was opined that Arthurs is incapable of being restored to competency and should be returned to the Florida State Hospital.
Michael Isaac Peinovich (born 1977), commonly known by his pseudonym Mike Enoch, is an American neo-Nazi, anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist, blogger and podcast host. He founded the alt-right media network The Right Stuff and podcast The Daily Shoah. Through his work, Peinovich ridicules African Americans, Jews, and other ethnic minorities, advocates racial discrimination, and promotes conspiracy theories such as Holocaust denial and white genocide.
Peinovich first drew media attention for his use of the Nazi salute at a conference organized by Richard Spencer to celebrate Donald Trump’s presidential election; in response to Spencer’s cry of “hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!,” Peinovich led the audience in a series of Sieg Heil salutes. The salutes were performed in front of a number of journalists, and film footage of the speech and the Peinovich-inspired salutes was widely circulated by the mainstream media. According to Andrew Marantz, the event marginalized the alt right by defining it to the public as a neo-Nazi movement, and led to an exodus of Trump supporters from the movement.
In early 2017, while operating his anti-semitic media network under the pseudonym Mike Enoch, he was doxxed by fellow neo-Nazis, who released biographical information about Peinovich that contradicted his professed ideology. The dox revealed that Peinovich’s own wife was Jewish, and that their wedding had featured traditional Jewish rites and chanting. As a neo-Nazi, Peinovich was also mocked upon the revelation of his Serbian surname, in light of the Nazi regime’s racial classification of Serbs as subhumans (“Untermenschen“), and the genocide of Serbs perpetrated by Nazi puppet regime Ustashe.
In addition to his founding of a neo-Nazi media network, Peinovich has drawn attention for his role in organizing book burnings.
“Peinovich first drew media attention for his use of the Nazi salute at a conference organized by Richard Spencer to celebrate Donald Trump’s presidential election; in response to Spencer’s cry of “hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!,” Peinovich led the audience in a series of Sieg Heil salutes.”

The Daily Stormer is an American far-right neo-Nazi, white supremacist, and Holocaust denial commentary and message board website that advocates for the genocide of Jews. It considers itself a part of the alt-right movement. Its editor, Andrew Anglin, founded it on July 4, 2013, as a faster-paced replacement for his previous website Total Fascism. The website also publishes its content in Spain and Latin America, Italy and Greece.
The site is known for its use of Internet memes, which have been likened to the imageboard 4chan and cited as attractions for a younger and more ideologically diverse audience. While some white nationalist authors have praised The Daily Stormer‘s reach, others have taken issue with its content and tone, accusing Anglin of being an agent provocateur, used to discredit true white nationalism.
Andrew Alan Escher Auernheimer (/ˈɔːrənhaɪmər/ OR-ən-hy-mər; born September 1, 1985), best known by his pseudonym weev, is an American computer hacker and self-avowed Internet troll who is affiliated with the alt-right. He has identified himself using a variety of aliases to the media, although most sources correctly provide his first name as Andrew.
In 2016, Auernheimer was responsible for sending thousands of white-supremacist flyers to unsecured web-connected printers at multiple universities and other locations in the U.S. Since his release from prison, he has lived in a variety of locations in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. In 2017, it was reported that he was acting as webmaster for the neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer. The Southern Poverty Law Center describes him as “a neo-Nazi white supremacist” known for “extremely violent rhetoric advocating genocide of non-whites”.
In 2017, Auernheimer was reported to be working as the webmaster for The Daily Stormer. Despite his neo-Nazi affiliations, Auernheimer’s mother has stated that he has Jewish relatives on both sides of his family.
This is just a few examples of how Jews, Slavs, and other non-Whites, muslims and degenerates in general, can infiltrate and subverse a movement.
Speaking of degenerates, Ramz Paul who loves Europe’s Mexico. Have made a video about another type of infiltration and subversion.
Should the FBI encourage criminal behavior?

Germany 1945 – Poland 2004
Germany: New Official Figures Show 3.12 Million “Asylum Seekers” and that the population of Germany as of end December 2018 stood at 83 million, of which at least 25 percent had a “migration background”.
The Germanic peoples (also called Teutonic, Suebian, or Gothic in older literature) are an Indo-European ethnolinguistic group of Northern European origin identified by their use of the Germanic languages. Their history stretches from the 2nd millennium BCE up to the present day.
Proto-Germanic peoples are believed to have emerged during the Nordic Bronze Age, which developed out of the Battle Axe culture in southern Scandinavia. During the Iron Age various Germanic tribes began a southward expansion at the expense of Celtic peoples, which led to centuries of sporadic violent conflict with ancient Rome. It is from Roman authors that the term “Germanic” originated. The decisive victory of Arminius at the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest in 9 CE is believed to have prevented the eventual Romanization of the Germanic peoples, and has therefore been considered a turning point in world history. Germanic tribes settled the entire Roman frontier along the Rhine and the Danube, and some established close relations with the Romans, often serving as royal tutors and mercenaries, sometimes even rising to the highest offices in the Roman military. Meanwhile, Germanic tribes expanded into Eastern Europe, where the Goths subdued the local Iranian nomads and came to dominate the Pontic Steppe, simultaneously launching sea expeditions into the Balkans and Anatolia as far as Cyprus.
The westward expansion of the Huns into Europe in the late 4th century CE pushed many Germanic tribes into the Western Roman Empire. Their vacated lands were filled by Slavs. Much of these territories were reclaimed in following centuries. Other tribes settled Great Britain and became known as the Anglo-Saxons. With the collapse of the Western Roman Empire, a series of Germanic kingdoms emerged, of which, Francia gained a dominant position. This kingdom formed the Holy Roman Empire under the leadership of Charlemagne, who was officially recognized by Pope Leo III in 800 CE. Meanwhile, North Germanic seafarers, commonly referred to as Vikings, embarked on a massive expansion which led to the establishment of the Duchy of Normandy, Kievan Rus’ and their settlement of the British Isles and the North Atlantic Ocean as far as North America. With the North Germanic abandonment of their native religion in the 11th century, nearly all Germanic peoples had been converted to Christianity. With the Reformation initiated by Martin Luther in the 16th century, many Germanic nations embraced Protestantism. The ensuing religious division resulted in the political fragmentation of much of Germanic Europe.
It is suggested by geneticists that the movements of Germanic peoples has had a strong influence upon the modern distribution of the male lineage represented by the Y-DNA haplogroup I1, which is believed to have originated with one man, who lived approximately 4,000 to 6,000 years ago somewhere in Northern Europe, possibly modern Denmark (see Most Recent Common Ancestor for more information). There is evidence of this man’s descendants settling in all of the areas that Germanic tribes are recorded as having subsequently invaded or migrated to.[ap] Haplogroup I1 is older than Germanic languages, but may have been present among early Germanic speakers. Other male lines likely to have been present during the development and dispersal of Germanic language populations include R1a1a, R1b-P312 and R1b-U106, a genetic combination of the haplogroups found to be strongly-represented among current Germanic speaking peoples. Peaking in northern Europe, the R1b-U106 marker seems particular interesting in distribution and provides some helpful genetic clues regarding the historical trek made by the Germanic people.
Haplogroup I1 accounts for approximately 40% of Icelandic males, 40%–50% of Swedish males, 40% of Norwegian males, and 40% of Danish Human Y-chromosome DNA haplogroups. Haplogroup I1 peaks in certain areas of Northern Germany and Eastern England at more than 30%.
Contemporary Romantic nationalism in Scandinavia placed more weight on the Viking Age, resulting in the movement known as Scandinavism. The theories of race developed in the same period, which used Darwinian evolutionary ideals and pseudo-scientific methods in the identification of Germanic peoples (members of a Nordic race), as being superior to other ethnicities. Scientific racism flourished in the late 19th century and into the mid-20th century, where it became the basis for specious racial comparisons and justification for eugenic efforts; it also contributed to compulsory sterilization, anti-miscegenation laws, and was used to sanction immigration restrictions in both Europe and the United States.

Germanic-speaking Europe refers to the area of Europe that today uses a Germanic language. Over 200 million Europeans (some 30%) speak a Germanic language natively. At the same time 515 million speak a Germanic language natively in the whole world (6.87%).
- West Germanic (≈180 million)
- German-speaking Europe (90 million)
- Luxembourgers (0.3 million)
- Dutch (22 million)
- English-speaking Europe (58 million)
- Frisians (0.5 million)
- North Germanic (22 million)
Independent European countries whose population are predominantly native speakers of a Germanic language:
- Belgium (slightly more than 60% majority concentrated in Flanders and the German-speaking Community of Belgium)
- United Kingdom
- Luxembourg (mostly and day-to-day use of Luxembourgish, German and French are also used in some areas of life)
German is the sole official language in Germany, Austria, and Liechtenstein, and is a co-official language in Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the European Union. Several other countries, including Denmark, Hungary, Italy, and Poland, have German as a national minority language.
English is a West Germanic language originating in England, and the first language for most people in Australia, Canada, the Commonwealth Caribbean, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.
One of the consequences of the French influence due to the Norman Conquest in the Middle Ages is that the vocabulary of the English language contains a massive number of non-Germanic words, i.e., Latin-derived words that entered the lexicon after the invasion.
English vocabulary is, to an extent divided between Germanic words (mostly Old English) and “Latinate” words (Latin-derived, directly from Norman French or other Romance languages). For instance, pairs of words such as ask and question (the first verb being Germanic and the second Latinate) show the division between Germanic and Latinate lexemes that compose Modern English vocabulary. The structure of the English language, however, has remained unequivocally Germanic.
In Europe, Dutch is spoken in the Netherlands (≈96%) and Flanders, the northern part of Belgium (≈59%). In French Flanders, in northern France, some of the older generation still speaks the local Dutch dialect. Outside Europe, Dutch is official in Suriname, Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles. In Indonesia, Dutch is spoken by the Indo people. Afrikaans, the third most spoken language in South Africa, in terms of native speakers (≈13.3%), and the most widely understood in Namibia, evolved from Dutch and was standardised in the early 20th century. Both languages are still largely mutually intelligible.
The Frisian languages are a closely related group of Germanic languages, spoken by about half a million members of Frisian ethnic groups, who live on the southern fringes of the North Sea in the Netherlands and Germany. They are the continental Germanic languages most closely related to English.
