Sam Francis On The War on Christmas—And On American Identity

See also: In Memoriam Sam Francis (April 29, 1947—February 15, 2005)

This year marks the 20th year in which I have written about the War on Christmas for VDARE.com. My opening salvo against the enemies of Christmas was first published in Chronicles and was republished here, with a generous introduction by Peter Brimelow; in the Middle American News, and, in a slightly abridged form, in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on the Sunday before Christmas 2001. I could tell the piece had hit a nerve. Nothing else I have written has ever generated so much correspondence, both public and private. It also was also quoted, at length, in the syndicated columns of two men I greatly admired, Pat Buchanan [The Abolition of Christmas, December 21, 2001] and Sam Francis.

At first glance, it may seem somewhat surprising that Sam Francis would take up the cause of Christmas. Sam was not a churchgoer. But he took up the defense of Christmas because he knew, as does the Left, that countries are ultimately shaped by what they celebrate and what they don’t celebrate, by who they honor and who they don’t. Sam had no doubt of the importance of the topic, and his Christmas columns, though but a tiny sliver of what he wrote, are illustrative of his thought.

Wow, the opposition press isn’t what it used to be!

In a Sunday interview with “The Sexiest Man Alive,” Anthony Fauci, CNN’s Jake Tapper played a clip of Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., criticizing Fauci for keeping the public in a state of raw panic over COVID.

Johnson: “Fauci did the exact same thing with AIDS. He overhyped it. He created all kinds of fear, saying it could affect the entire population, when it couldn’t. And he’s doing—he’s using the exact same playbook for COVID.”

America after the 2019-2020 "Racial Reckoning" is full of blessings. We have the massive crime wave in cities across the country, especially with mass shootings, which the various "communities" are mostly indifferent to. There's the surge of mass lootings, met with indifference by some local authorities [California retailers plead with officials to crack down on brazen looting: Employees, shoppers,...

Last April in Taki’s Magazine, I pointed to the Bruce’s Beach hubbub in Manhattan Beach, CA, in which descendants of a black family that had had their land taken via eminent domain for a park are being given the public park, which they can now sell for $75 million, as being emblematic of what the demand for equity is really about: blacks don’t own much valuable real estate, while whites do, so they...

The profit-maximizing corporations that covet your "digital health" data hide behind nonprofit umbrella groups that pose as public interest do-gooders. These vaccine passport profiteers are turning millions of human beings into walking QR codes in the name of fighting COVID-19 and under the guise of bringing "normalcy" back. It's an unprecedented worldwide racket that rewards compliant sheep and punishes free-thinking, autonomy-seeking citizens.

Let's name them.

Here in my adopted home of Colorado, the state government is pimping the Smart Health Card "allowing users to verify and share their vaccination status." Who's behind Smart Health Card technology, which is now being used in Canada, Puerto Rico, the Cayman Islands, Australia and a total of 12 states, including California, Washington state, Virginia, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Oregon—as well as CVS and Rite Aid pharmacies, Kaiser Permanente, UC Health, Walgreens, Walmart, Express Scripts and United Healthcare Services?

Either the U.S. and NATO provide us with "legal guarantees" that Ukraine will never join NATO or become a base for weapons that can threaten Russia—or we will go in and guarantee it ourselves. This is the message Russian President Vladimir Putin is sending, backed by the 100,000 troops Russia has amassed on Ukraine's borders. At the Kremlin last week, Putin drew his red line: The threat on our west...

The killings of six whites by a Black Lives Matter supporter who drove his car into a Waukesha, WI Christmas parade made national news in November—briefly. (The New York Times relegated it to page A22). But many more whites than that are killed by blacks in each and every month without any national media attention at all. Below, what I could find by scouring local sources.

Arrested after the deaths of Virginia Sorenson, 79; Leanna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; Wilhelm Hospel, 81; and Jackson Sparks, 8, was 39-year-old Darrell Brooks Jr.

You've seen the video clips and read the news stories. Gangs of looters spent the Thanksgiving weekend looting retail stores in our cities: Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, Home Depot, Best Buy, Apple, pharmacies, jewelry stores, … Not all of these were big chain stores. Some, especially the jewelry stores, were single-outlet family enterprises. This gives a whole new meaning to the term "Black Friday."

Cops made a few half-hearted arrests here and there, but no perps were detained for long. After Thanksgiving Day lootings in Los Angeles the LAPD made fourteen arrests. Reporting on this a week later, the LA Times said "none of the 14 suspects remains in custody." One was a juvenile, the others were all bailed out or released without bail [ LAPD announces 14 arrests in connection with recent smash-and-grab robberies , by Gregory Yee, Brittny Mejia, LA Times,  December 2, 2021].

So far as we have been permitted to see, the looters are all black. No surprise there: to a fair first approximation, all crime in the U.S.A. is committed by blacks.

Hence the cautious, hands-off approach by police and prosecutors. If black looters were held indefinitely in jail the way those white January 6th protestors have been—except of course, I mean, for the one shot dead by a black cop—the city's crime stats would not display equity.

That would be terrible—plain evidence of white supremacy!

Our underclass is taking the concept of free stuff to a whole new level. Welcome to Jim Snow America.
