Fortunately, I saved a couple of the comments, like this one:
It seems to work because it works at first when the number of minorities is small. And of those small groups, Whites are only exposed to the most adaptable and seemingly compliant. Things begin to change but too slowly for the average person to notice. And when Whites begin to feel uneasy, they compare the present to a past that was already altered by the minorities- fatal mistake. Whites should compare the unliveable present with a past that was really good not just a bit better. But most people are too young or if old eneough, too old to remember correctly, or if cogent, too socially conditioned to reason correctly from the data available. All of this is incrementalism - one of the great weapons used against our People. Too abstract? Ever ask yourself how you got into a terrible relationship? It’s because the person wasn’t like that when you first met them. They only gradually revealed themselves. If they did it all at once, you would have just left. This is incrementalism, the great weapon of the Evil. Thus all traditional societies emphasize memory as a divine faculty. Without it, you will have no valid data to reason from, but only files increasingly adulterated by propaganda. Yes, you will do it to yourself. The Maoists called it self-correction.

And then there was this one, which despite spelling errors is a sound and sensible post:
Multiculturalism in the West is the result of our elites, both neoconservative and neomarxists, promoting globalization, both economic and social, meaning total intergration of the World’s finance and goverment. It is a universalist principle of free capital flow and migration of populations, not to mention outsourcing ect. But the most damaging product by far to come out of universalist principles was multiculturalism. The effect, most severly seen in places like Canada and esp. the U.K, was the total loss of the Whites in these “universal” countries of a sense of themselves as a people, the product of 3000 years of history. The Western peoples achieved the greatest civilization the world had known, and yet those who know it (few) can’t say it, and the young dont even understand the concept of Western history and culture. Multiculturalism stripped European descended peoples of their identity. It is in question weather our elites are going to change. The choice for ED peoples will then be either revolution or extinction.

I think both those comments hit on themes that we can't emphasize enough. It is not for nothing that those in charge have systematically tried to rewrite history, or to efface all memory of it, so as to detach people from a past that they might notice was appreciably better.
I do encounter a lot of younger people (anybody who was raised under political correctness, which means anybody under 40, pretty much) who energetically deny that things were ever much better than they are today. I have had young people (who know only what they've been taught by their liberal teachers and Hollywood movies) tell me that 'it was just as bad in the old days, but they just swept things under the rug.'
Personally, I can't imagine arguing with my parents about what it was like in the World War II era, or the Depression, because I wasn't around then. I never presumed that just reading a book about those days, however unbiased the book might be, would give me a real knowledge of what it was like to live in those times. Even less would I assume that, because I've watched many movies made in the 1930s that I therefore ''know'' what it was like then. I still defer to my elders as to what was really true about those days.
As for myself, I often regret that while some of the older generation were still with us, I didn't make it a point to write down or record their stories. My beloved late Grandmother wrote down, in longhand, her early recollections, and I still have access to that, but so many of my elders have left this world, and I feel I missed a chance to learn all that they had to tell about the past, about their daily lives as children.
My uncles and aunts and grandparents, great-uncles and great-aunts, were lively storytellers; they made every little anecdote entertaining and vivid. Nothing made me happier as a child than a big family get-together where everyone shared stories and recollections. I wonder how many children today have the inclination to listen to the old folks?
I regret that nobody in our family has taken the trouble to videotape some of the stories from the older generation.
I encourage those of you who still have the chance to record these things for posterity.
Reading history books is all well and good; I love to read history, but there is so much more out there that tells our collective story. Go to old newspapers and old books, magazines, ephemera of all sorts, even old photos. Getting it from the horse's mouth, reading history as recorded at the time, is worth reading many contemporary books which to some extent filter the history through the distorting lenses of today.
If you still have elderly relatives or neighbors who have clear recollections of the past, take the time to listen to what they have to say. They are a neglected resource. We live in an age which devalues the old; by counting them as of little importance, we fail to acknowledge their experience and their possible insights.
The media and the captive educational establishment lie to us, and want us to believe that the world was always as it is now. This has reached such an absurd point that we now see movies in which blacks and Moslems roam Sherwood Forest, and 'diversity' prevails everywhere, although this was not the case at all.
A year or so ago on a blog which posts old photos, there was a class picture of some elementary school children in northern California in the early 60s. The second comment on the photo was an angry "Why aren't there any African-Americans and Hispanics in this class?" The younger generations have been conditioned to believe that whenever they see a picture which is bereft of ''diversity'', that something is alarmingly wrong; some evil racists somewhere conspired to exclude African-Americans, Hispanics, and Moslems from their rightful place. Many can't comprehend that this was once a majority White country, even in California, imagine that! And they can't comprehend that it was not because there was a malicious effort to shut out 'diversity', but because it just worked out that way, in most cases. After all, blacks made up 10 percent or so of the population, and most blacks were concentrated in cities. How hard is it to understand, that being only 10 percent of the total population, blacks could not be everywhere?
I suppose that last fact is the reason why our government is now scrambling to fly in the 'diversity' to fill in for the missing black people in Maine, Kansas, Iowa, Tennessee, and soon, Montana.
The idea that diversity is an absolute must everywhere is a strange and bizarre notion that was not part of this country until the madness that began in the 1960s.
I find that to recharge my batteries, I need to pay regular visits to that old world, the world that was America before this collective psychosis set in, and remind myself of what it was like, who we were (and still are) at our best. I do this by reading old books and magazines, (many are available online; you need not clutter up your house with old books as I do), by watching old movies and videos on YouTube, by listening to music that is truly ours, from the Western traditions, and enjoying the visual arts from the glory days of the Western past.
As 'Freyr' says in the first comment I quoted above, memory as a divine faculty is an idea that for many centuries enabled a culture and a way of life to be passed down from one generation to the next. We have to recover our past and all that it embodied, if we hope to find our way back. Trying to reinvent ourselves as if from nothing is a hopeless task. We must build on the best of what still remains.
