What’s Friday afternoon if not a time to plan your weekend training? Nationalist videos provide aspirational images, and I like the ones below because they feature men as representatives of a culture, part of a larger trend of doing away with showboating the beauty of their women. There are many Eastern European nationalist anthems on YouTube because those countries have patriot youth cultures emerging from their working classes.
A few words about Slavic rap. It’s an appropriated musical form and as is always the case, the borrower of an artistic style remakes it in his own image. For example, different races do rhythm differently. For Whites, the fundamentals are warrior-wiring, with heavy metal and even dubstep beats evoking martial drills.
Stolniygrad is a Russian rapper whose songs promote the physical health of individual men and of White Europe. All of his videos have English subtitles. In “Grab the Axe” below, he tells that his story began when vigilantes beat him up for being a drug addict. Männerbund protects the community and enforces its standards. They kill a drug dealer. The refrain:
Grab your axe, purge your district
Don’t be afraid of the criminal scum
They transport the drug dealer to a forest and execute him there. A tangential thought: there is something in the northeast European soul — Scandinavians, Finns, Slavs, Balts — that finds a home in our primeval forest. Forests have been our sustenance and shelter. Home Army partisants in World War II operated from there. In his autobiographical Native Realm, Czeslaw Milosz writes about that same feeling of spiritual home he’s always found in Lithuanian forests, beginning with his childhood memories of evading soldiers and border guards on smuggling forays with his parents during the 1920 Polish-Soviet war.
The next video is similar in style, and it’s from Poland. It condemns globalist press (the video shows the burning of Gazeta Wyborcza, a premier Jewish-owned newspaper), as well as the torching of the European Union flag:
Instead of a white Eagle, little EU stars?!
The video also has English subtitles. In addition to social themes and explicit White pride lyrics, as with the Russian video before, the song and the video centers on physical training, camaraderie, and personal excellence. From the refrain:
If you don’t ride [with us]
If you don’t train
Then the fuck remember
That you don’t count
Those videos are about hammering down on the thought that’s on the minds of every woke young man throughout the West: who are you? what do you believe? How do you secure your freedom today and your future tomorrow, those two being somewhat in opposition to each other?
A personal takeaway from these videos: I will not go half-ass at the gym this evening. A broader takeaway: anti-empire spirit is growing worldwide, no less so in Eastern Europe. The photo below is from a pan-Slavic march in Warsaw. It featured a number of European flags, pro-Serbian banners about Kosovo, an Iranian flag, as well as a Confederate flag. Nation recognizes nation.
