Wexit

Wexit. By Eugene Gant.

Five more Oregon counties voted May 18 to secede from the state and join a “Greater Idaho,” to the obvious dismay of liberal journalists who console themselves that the movement can never prevail. …

Secession, in one or other of its many forms, is unmistakably occurring to more and more Americans as the answer to political polarization and immigration-driven racial division. …

Most current secession talk is generally not national, but at the state (sometimes city or county) level. … Most of those movements today do not anticipate leaving the Union. Yet the new separatists are rightly angry, and rightly feel threatened.

The Democrats [have] declared Republicans “enemies of the state,” as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did last year. [They designated] Republican street protesters “domestic terrorists.” [They] officially placed angry, anti-American immigrants, like Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar or Washington State’s Pramilla Jayapal, in a position to become enablers of The Great Replacement. …

Beyond that, something shows why Americans should and do openly discuss secession/separation: demographics.

The Republican and Democratic Parties now represent racial coalitions that have remarkably little in common. Unless the GOP turns out historic numbers of white voters, urban Democrats will almost always outvote rural Republicans nationally, with the Electoral College the only hope that the GOP can win a presidential election, as happened in 2000 and 2016. …

US election by county

Now Biden has four years to continue encouraging mass immigration and Electing A New People. Fast-tracked to citizenship, they will outnumber and outvote the Historic American Nation that elected Trump. The Electoral College will be no defense if Texas turns blue.

At the state-level, the picture is similar. For example, Ninety-five percent of Virginia’s counties are Second Amendment sanctuaries, yet the Radical Left controls the state. White conservatives are, as a practical matter of statewide policy, voiceless in Virginia.

America’s Founders were aware of this danger, which is why U.S. states used to have various internal balancing mechanisms, notably legislatures weighted to rural interests. But in the 1960s that was destroyed by the U.S. Supreme Courtbased on the simplistic mantra of one-man, one-vote. These rulings meant that there was no institutional mechanism to protect the various communities within a state from the “Tyranny of the Majority,” as the U.S. Senate and the Electoral College do at the national level. (Which is why the Left hates them). As with many 1960s reforms … it has taken time for the disastrous results to become clear. Now they have.

Legacy Americans are terminally weary of tyrannical control by unhinged Leftists and their immigrant auxiliaries in major cities:

  • Conservative Oregonians wish to join Idaho.
  • Conservative Illinoisans want to excise the ugly carbuncle called Chicago.
  • Twenty Washington State counties east of the Cascades, again populated by conservatives, want to create the state of Liberty …

Texit:

Unlike other separatist movements, Texit is an actual secession movement that envisions becoming a separate country. …

Difficulty is, the state could turn blue by 2024. If so, the next round of elections might mean two new Democrats in the Senate. Secession would stop that, but secession by 2024 isn’t going to happen. And whenever Texas turns blue, Texit will be dead. A blue state will not unplug from the Deep State.

That would leave Texit backers to push for the separation of the Lone Star State’s largely red rural regions from its urban south. …

Vexit:

Red-State Secession cites an important reason the rural areas of Virginia should secede — perhaps the most important, long-term: guns.

The site’s Second Amendment Sanctuary map shows just how little influence gun owners in the state have, even though, … 95 percent of Virginia’s counties are 2A sanctuaries. If those counties remain tied to NoVa, Richmond, and Tidewater, residents might lose their gun rights. …

Calexit:

Even Golden Staters don’t want to stick with the union if they can’t run it. When Trump was elected, support for California’s leaving the Union jumped from 20 percent to 32 percent …

Three years ago, Californians nearly voted on a ballot measure to break the state in three. The state Supreme Court kicked it off the ballot …

The left are vigorously fueling the trend:

Secessionists and separatists at the state level face serious obstacles. The Leftists who run those states might never permit breakaway counties to form new states that would increase GOP representation on Capitol Hill. … [Democrats] would denounce such as a state as “racist” and “white supremacist.” GOP Cheneyites would get the vapors. …

The aftermath of the 2016 election has exposed the Democrat Left for what it is: irredeemably anti-white, anti-Christian, anti-American Cultural Marxist totalitarians. Its political demands are objectively evil. No normal American, meaning a member of the Historic American Nation, can accede to those demands. Debates over the public weal are no longer merely political, over such matters as the correct minimum wage or how many fighters to buy for the Air Force.

Debates that would have been considered galactically absurd as late as 1995 are now routine: drag queens in the ladies’ room, and whether Christian bakeries and photographers can turn away business from homosexuals. Opponents of Open Borders and the Great Replacement are anathematized, if not ruined professionally and financially.

The “political” debate now concerns what it means even to be an American on the one hand, and the very nature of what it means to be a human being on the other. Never Trumpers, Deep Staters, and both political parties’ elites view Trump voters — the nonelites — as enemies to be crushed, “re-educated,” and/or murdered, as they made clear in the run-up to and aftermath of November 3. They hate us, and they say so. …

Where secession precipitated war in 1860, blocking secession might eventually precipitate violence today. Unless the Pelosis are right, and the Historic American Nation can be hectored into submission.
