Joe’s Political Burnout


Over the last week, I have finally reached my political burnout. After giving much of my time to political writing and trying to wake up white Americans for sixteen months, I have tuckered out. In this time I have indie published three small books of essays, started this blog, posted over 120 blog essays, and left perhaps 1,000 comments in various forums. For the last 2 ½ months, I have been dual publishing many of my blog essays here and at the multi-author site Identity Dixie. Several times I questioned why I was marching on when those around me did not care, but I marched on.

I have received a lot of views for some of my essays, and made “internet acquaintance” with some well-known members of the Alt-South and Kinist movements, but have had little effect on people that I know face to face/in real life.

I believe that a movement needs to be grassroots to be successful. The Alt-Right have been doing a series of rallies this summer, for people across Imperial America to come and meet face to face at. While this is no doubt more gratifying than internet-only acquaintance, I am not sure what long term value this will result in –when the other activists one meets live several hundred (or more) miles away from you, and your neighbors are not in the movement. Further, the Unite the Right rally to be held in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12 is trying to bring together everybody –White Nationalists, Alt-Right, Southern Nationalists, American patriots, and even the Proud Boys. (The Proud Boys are a “western civilization” advocacy group that embraces white culture and historic achievements while rejecting “racism” and the racial origin of what they defend.)

The local Committees of Safety of the American Revolution, the war effort and army formation of the Confederacy, and the Great Trek and subsequent republic formations of the Boers worked because they were local movements of the masses of the common people. Further, these groups were of common ethnos and culture, and often common religion. None of these characteristics apply to the wider Alt-Right.

One of the straws that broke the camel’s back of my final political burnout, was the reaction to Trump’s announcement via Twitter that transgender soldiers could no longer serve in the U.S. armed forces. I do not think that transgender or homosexual people should serve in the armed forces –or hold political office. They would not have done so in Revolution era America, the Confederacy, or Reformation era Geneva.

But, Trump did not kick the sodomites out of the armed forces, only those who have had or want to have their bodies surgically mutilated and then hormone therapy to make them the opposite physical sex of what they were born. This executive decision by Trump does nothing to kick sodomites or women out of the armed forces of the Empire. It does not make transsexual operations illegal, which would be under state jurisdiction anyway. Open homosexuals are still embraced by and full members of the armed forces of Imperial America, and women can still be not only members, but be assigned to combat units.

But most importantly, Trump’s Tweet did not declare transgendered people to be sinful, evil, defective, or mentally deranged. It had nothing to do with morality, or fear of offending an omniscient God who will judge the earth and all men. And yet, some Christians are excited that Trump is standing against degeneracy, when he is not doing so. Go read the Old Testament law and you will see that adulterers were to receive the same punishment as sodomites; then go read everything that Jesus said about the definition of adultery in the New Testament. That subject is something that Christians who cheer Trump do not want to think about.

Let me clarify, that like the 17th century Westminster and London Baptist Confessions, and like John Calvin in his Institutes (Book 4, Chapter 20, Point 16), I do not think that all countries are duty bound to enact the Mosaic law word for word. This being clarified, if the U.S.A. was under that law, then huge numbers (the majority?) of the citizens, the majority of the politicians, and perhaps the majority of church members would all be lying outside the gates under piles of stones. We are not currently a righteous country, not by any stretch of the imagination. To think that God will help us in this state is a Biblically ignorant fantasy.

Let me lay out the surgical mutilation sexual perversion game of transgenderism; it is really just a five step descent. We start with a God approved society: manly men leading their houses, feminine women keeping the home and caring for their children, Christian morality, small governments with low taxes, separation of the races (if multiple races are present in the same land), and an agrarian social order. We basically had that in 1775, and the South did in 1861.

Step 1 in the descent is for women to get out of their God ordained and historically occupied roles: to dress indecent, to cut their hair, to demand positions of leadership in the church, and to demand a voice in politics. Parents began to send their children to public school (indoctrination facilities) for free education by the state.

Step 2 is when women go to jobs outside the home, wear pants like men, send their daughters to college, vote, and even hold political office. Man no longer truly rules his home, and usually goes to a factory or office -as does his wife. Men began to dress softer. With the workforce socialization of married people of both sexes, in marriages that are no longer structured and working according to God’s model, inappropriateness is everywhere and adultery becomes commonplace.

Step 3 is for the total breakdown of the traditional family by adultery, divorce, and remarriage. Fractured families become the norm, with children only being related to one of the parents. In the advanced stage of this family chaos, both spouses may have children from a 1st marriage, and then have children together, so that it is a three way split among the cohabiting half siblings! Traditional gender roles are little more than a memory, and are maligned by media, government, and movies. Birth control drugs, so that women may be promiscuous without consequence, become common. Children become rebellious; just as the man no longer rules his house, it is only to be expected that he and his wife no longer have real authority over their offspring. Pornography is available, but somewhat censored. Homosexuality becomes commonplace, and accepted by many. Abortion becomes legal, so that “liberated” women may kill their unborn offspring, the care of which might inconvenience their career, or other interests and indulgences. At this point the society is beyond repair.

Step 4 is where pornography, adultery, and all manner of sexual impurity is commonplace –and on display in public places and celebrated by the media and prominent individuals. Homosexuality is not just accepted, but legally protected and celebrated by the state and prominent cultural figures. Laws against discrimination may be passed at this point, to protect the degenerates. At this point abortion, the pre-birth destruction of a human life, is now construed to be a human right.

Step 5 is the end. With sodomy now mainstreamed, people, even children, become so perverse and deranged that in addition to queerness, they imagine that they are not the physical sex that the private areas of their body obviously show them to be. They demand a “right” to fix themselves through drugs and mutilation surgery. Also, pedophilia becomes less taboo and some people noise that it is just another sexual “orientation” –just like being queer or bisexual. At this point, things are absolutely irreversible, unless God rains his judgement on the land to wipe away the egregious evil.

It is pretty clear that we are right now entering Step 5. My parents were born when America was in the late stages of Step 2, and I was born in Step 3. We, as a nation, are now entering Step 5. Considering this, to see professing Christians who not only accept but rejoice in Steps 1 and 2, and all of Steps 3 and 4 except for the abortion and sodomy, get excited because Trump said no more transsexuals in the army of the Empire is rather frustrating. To put out the fire on one corner of the roof, while ignoring that the multi-story building is engulfed in flames down to the basement, is ridiculous. There is no redemption for America, or any geographical part of it, without going back to a God approved society.

That my readers, is a large part of why I am officially ceasing to blog on politics. I am glad that I published the three books that I did. Though there a few things I have tweaked my position on since I published it last year, As America Fades is still in print and available at Amazon and CreateSpace, and I intend to keep it that way. (link to AAF on CreateSpace:  ) If I thought it would do some good to continue my political commentaries I would do so, but I doubt that it would. I am not going to delete any essay from this blog; it all stands here as a witness to my countrymen. I am glad that I have spoken out. I am just done with my efforts to revive a political corpse.

I am still writing and blogging a bit. At least at this point, I will continue blogging weekly. My bloggings will now focus on American (especially Southern) history, race and traditional white culture, Christian theology, agrarianism, the limited government concepts that America was founded on, and survival topics. My next book project will be theological. I am going to do a lot of study, and a lot of work developing the homestead. I may occasionally reference current events, but I am done with political commentary posts.

I am a strong believer in the Kin basis of nations, and in separate lands for different people. I consider myself a Southerner by culture, ancestry, and arguably by geography also. I would love to see a free, white, moral Dixie in the future. But at this point, that is still a dream. I think that any future free Dixie will begin at the grassroots level, with communities of moral people and family farms. At this point, logic and decades of experience evince that elections will not restore a free Dixie. I do not see how Alt-Right street rallies that bring together *one country/America wide* White Nationalists, Nazis, Neo-Pagans, the Proud Boys, and the Alt-South will advance a restoration of the South. Sorry, but that is how I see it.

The Bible teaches us that a corrupt tree cannot bear good fruit. America has become the Weimerica that I wrote of last week. There is hope for the future, but it will likely not come until we have an economic collapse or long period of tyranny or crisis. As long as the bowel is filled with pathogens, the body will not recover its health.

Do you smell smoke? Yes, that is me burning out. Stay tuned on this blog, for the new course I am charting for it.

Author: Joe Putnam

I am a Christian (Reformed/Sovereign Grace Baptist type), white American of Western European bloodline, advocate of an agrarian social order, Kinist, White Nationalist, admirer of America’s Founding Fathers and the Boys in Gray, homesteader, indie published author, and amateur historian. I have indie published several books, all of which are available from Amazon. I am a life long resident of rural Orange County, IN –in the part of the Upper South that many would term Greater Appalachia or the Dixie Frontier. In addition to my own blog "Putnam Liberty Notes", from May through July of 2017 I dual published many of my posts at the popular multi-author Alt-South blog Identity Dixie. In addition to my blog writings, I am currently gearing up for (at least) two more book projects –one theological and one historical. The theological one will cover the three interpretational views of Daniel’s 70th Week. I hope to have this book in print in late summer 2017. (Hint: I am, not a Dispensational Futurist). The historical book will be a biography of George Rogers Clark (1752-1818). Clark was a noted Virginia militia officer who’s campaigns, including his successful siege of Vincennes, basically took the Old Northwest from Britain during the American Revolution. Clark spent the rest of his life around the river that separates Clarksville, IN from Louisville, Kentucky. I hope to have my Clark bio in print in early 2018.

    1. Yes Willy, I have been in the gun rigths movement since my mid-teens. Little “victories”, like with Heller when the S.C. declared we had a “right” but that it was not absolute like the 2nd clearly says it is, was about as good as it ever got. Last year, there was a little movement here in Indiana to make open carry legal by adults with no permit required -just like in Kentucky 30 miles away from me. But it did not get enough steam with all the other projects in the State legislature. Glad you appreciate the blog.


  1. Joe, the Amish are doing what I think we should try.
    Avoid contact as much as possible with the filth
    and degeneracy. Home school and barter for as
    much of our needs as possible locally. Communities
    could actually form with like-minded families.
