George Kennan, a race-realist Cassandra?

American diplomat and scholar George Kennan has long been a hero to those holding to the view of “political realism” in foreign policy, i.e. a county should only protect what’s in its vital interest and not get caught in the trappings of ideological battles.  This view is nearly opposite the dominant paradigm of today: neoconservatism / neoliberalism, which sees no problem spending American resources to spread democracy or “human rights”.  In recent years, those unhappy with neoconservatism / neoliberalism have turned to George Kennan’s writings.  For instance, Kennan’s ideas figured prominently in the creation of the American Conservative magazine.  Expect all this to end.

With the recent publication of Kennan’s diaries, we have discovered that Kennan was a race realist, supported eugenics, opposed multiculturalism, thought mestizo immigration bad for America, thought the end of Apartheid in South Africa would lead to white genocide, et al.  In short, Kennan was a Cassandra of sorts.  The Cathedral is not happy.  In fact, while Cathedral mouthpieces have already condemned Kennan in recent days, it will probably only be a matter of days before Cathedral Lite mouthpieces (such as the American Conservative) who previously supported Kennan now publish pieces condemning him. “Racist eugenicist!,” it’ll read.

Here are a couple must-read articles on Kennan’s recently published diaries:

Cooper Sterling: “The Sensible Realism of a Bygone Generation: George Kennan’s Attitudes on Race, Eugenics, and Multiculturalism, Part 1”  and  “The Sensible Realism of a Bygone Generation: George Kennan’s Attitudes on Race, Eugenics, and Multiculturalism, Part 2

Other valuable writings:

Paul Nachman: “George F. Kennan: Immigration Seer

Steve Sailer: “George Kennan, Fareed Zakaria, Kim Kardashian…And The Los Angeles Of 2014

Excerpt arguing against mass immigration from George Kennan’s 1993 book.


As the America media hysterically go on about human rights and democracy in the Ukraine, it appears the country is already being divvied up by Jewish oligarchs. Wonder what Kennan would think?
