Kevin MacDonald | The Solutrean hypothesis of the first peoples to inhabit North America is getting positively respectable to the point that the Washington Post has deigned to publish a longish article on the topic (“Radical theory of first Americans places Stone Age Europeans in Delmarva 20,000 years ago“). The occasion is the publication of a book by Dennis Stanford, an anthropologist at the Smithsonian Institute and main academic advocate for the hypothesis (Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America’s Clovis Culture). The basic idea is that settlers from Southern Europe managed to get to the East Coast of North America around 22,000 years ago, making them the first Americans by about 7000 years. The hypothesis is based on finding several stone tools dated from 16000-22000 years ago that resemble tools found at European sites of the same age.
The hypothesis is certainly not nailed down yet. “Stanford acknowledges that his evidence is scant. He calls the Solutrean hypothesis ‘a skeletal idea.’”
Nevertheless, it certainly presents a different scenario on the usual charges about evil Whites displacing the natives. In fact, it’s quite possible that the native Solutreans were wiped out by the numerically superior Asians, although Stanford favors an assimilation scenario. as discussed here:
The reason early Asians won out, evolving into the people now called Native Americans, was because their window of opportunity was much wider, 15,000 years versus just 4500 for the early Europeans. Thus the original Native Americans were either assimilated or killed by the large numbers of migrating Asians. Evidence that it was likely the former has been found in the DNA of skeletons of North American Native American people. Also, the language of several Native American tribes doesn’t seem to have originated from Asia. (“European style stone tools suggest Stone Age people actually discovered America.”)
White advocate Kyle Bristow has written a novel, White Apocalypse, based on the Solutrean theory.
In White Apocalypse, a rogue anthropologist teams up with a proponent of the Solutrean Hypothesis and a fiery lawyer in order to reveal to the world the shocking truth that carries immense cultural, political, and racial significance: 17,000 years ago, white people immigrated to North and South America from Europe, and when the Amerindians arrived by crossing the Bering Strait roughly 12,000 years ago, the latter subsequently and systematically murdered the former. The powers that be will do everything that they can to prevent this controversial theory from being espoused by the trio, and during this action-packed, semi-fictional thriller, the epic adventure will take the advocates of historical revisionism from the forests of southeastern Michigan to a federal courtroom in Ohio, from the busy streets of Washington, D.C. to an Amerindian reservation in Virginia!
The priority of Europeans in North America is an important tool in battling with the forces of political correctness. However, the priority of “Native Americans” was never a strong argument anyway. Displacements of one group by another have been going on throughout history—as recorded, for example, in the Torah where the Israelites displaced the previously dominant peoples. The real lesson is that dominant groups must be vigilant in preserving their position. If left unchecked, the current onslaught of massive non-White immigration is going to eventually displace Whites, and there’s nothing that our current hostile elites would like more than having Whites eventually relegated to a few museum specimens, buried under an avalanche of hate. But Whites who are worried about it know what to expect from the powers that be. Just ask Pat Buchanan. It’s going to be a long, difficult struggle. (Editor’s Note: “There goes the victimhood…”)
