Republic Standard last spoke to Laura back in January, but given how quickly the world moves these days—plus the fact that she is absolutely blowing up right now!—we figured we would be remiss if we didn’t check back in with her in order to both pick her brain some more and to gain some insight into what has shaped the woman she is today and what influences have been instrumental in informing her way of thinking. Enjoy!
In ten words or less, describe your political persuasion.
Nationalism. Traditionalism. Environmentalism.
How and when did you become “red pilled”?
When I was a teenager, I moved from a small, homogenous village to a very busy, very heavily-Muslim populated city, both in the north of England. I lived there for two years in total. It was a big wake-up call for me. I learned that certain people and certain cultures just do not work together. Islam was my first gateway, as I think it is for most people. I think this is because it’s easy to wrap an “Islam is not a race, therefore, I am not a racist” comfort blanket around yourself. After a while (and a lot of research!) I had to admit that genetics do play a huge part in how we behave. After that, I wanted to know why this was happening and who was pulling the strings behind the… curtain. I’m sure you can guess where that led me to!
I actually had an article published on Counter-Currents last week in which I detailed my “red-pilling” experience in quite some depth if you’re interested.
What drives you?
A love for my country and people. I love England and the English. I don’t for one second believe that you can move to a new country, or be born to migrants in a host country, and feel the same connection that a native person feels to their home. Everything around me was built by my ancestors, and I’m the heir to their genetic and cultural legacy. It is my duty to protect, nourish and develop what I was given. I also worry about my future children and the world that they will grow up and live in. I don’t want them to be a hated minority in their own country, surrounded by crime and continuous drops in IQ. That’s one thing that I love about nationalism: The connection we have to our past and future.
What (or who) is the single biggest threat to the continued existence of Western civilization?
It’s becoming increasingly difficult to bite my tongue and stay patient with the unobservant and cowardly people within our own ranks. I’m beginning to wonder… If hundreds of thousands of young, English girls being raped, tortured and murdered by foreign men won’t wake them up, then what on earth will? If everybody was a nationalist, then we’d all be ok. There would be too many of us to stop us. But these people are holding us back and stopping us from keeping ourselves safe. It’s the weak, progressive, lefty men that infuriate me the most. What kind of a man refuses to take his own side in a fight? It’s not even the ones who stay quiet (although they do annoy me too), it’s the ones who counter signal us and say things like: “Well Jimmy Savile was a pedophile and he was White.” Seriously? Get a grip. Grow a spine. And learn what per capita is.
What figure has been the greatest influence on the development of your political/ideological beliefs?
It’s too difficult to pick one person. Being English, I love Sir Mosley, Enoch Powell, and Jonathan Bowden. I also love Farage. I think he’s much more hardcore than he lets on.
I’m also a huge fan of Jared Taylor. I could listen to him all day!
What are some other influences on you personally but perhaps not politically?
I respect people who choose to do what they think is right over doing what is easy. David Irving is a good example. His work is very compelling, and he maintains his discoveries despite knowing that it will continue to ruin his life. Having his evidence out there matters more to him than his own comforts. I live in Britain so I’m not stupid enough to comment on his actual work, but I will say that I respect his bravery very much. I refuse to condemn a good family man.
What does your perfect England look like?
Well, it would be full of English people for a start! What I’d like to see is content, healthy and safe communities, where people know and recognize each other and there’s a sense of neighborly trust (the kind of communities where it doesn’t matter if you forget to lock your door). I’d like to see large, nuclear families that respect traditional gender roles. People would be happier because they’d be living according to nature, not fighting it. I’d also like to see a sense of patriotism and racial pride. If we took back control of our state and media, our children would be taught to be proud of being English from a young age. They wouldn’t be indoctrinated with self-hatred or White guilt.
I’m not that interested at all in GDP and how we operate economically on the world stage. In a perfect world, we wouldn’t be paying off any debt anyway. I have faith that Britain can stand on her own two feet. It would actually be great for the everyday working man if we could bring a number of our trades back to Britain rather than shipping in everything from abroad just because it’s cheaper.
Isn’t it strange that this is all I want and I’m the bad guy apparently?
What is a “racist”?
I actually have no idea anymore. I think it’s somebody who can read crime statistics.
What do you like to do in your free time? Do you have any future projects in the works?
I work hard through the week so on a weekend I like to turn my electrical stuff off and get out into nature and go for long walks and visit country pubs. I also read a lot, and I like to spend a lot of time with my family. I’m also a huge Arctic Monkeys fan!
I’m also just about to start my own YouTube channel. Look out for my first video very soon!
What is your advice to young women who are coming to discover and hold the views of the Right?
Firstly, well done on choosing the side that will protect you, because the progressive left certainly won’t. If I could offer any advice, it would simply be to live by the morals that you profess to have in public. Live a wholesome life, and don’t apologize for putting your own people first. Also, be prepared to be called out if you demonstrate crappy behavior. One thing that I love about the right is that we hold ourselves to very high standards.
How do you define success, both personally and in terms of your political and social aims/beliefs?
Success is being comfortable in the knowledge that you’re doing the right thing. I would feel like a huge failure if I pretended not to care about something just to be popular or to avoid confrontation.
How do you see this ending? Is England doomed? Or does the sun never set on the Empire once again?
England is far from doomed. Our people are capable of incredible feats. Just look at all our previous achievements and advancements. The British Empire colonized a quarter of the globe at one point! And people across the entire world appropriate our culture every single day. In fact, you’re reading our language right now!
I don’t believe we’ve always made the correct decisions as a state. There are things we’ve done in the past that I would change. But I do know that as long as there are a few of us who refuse to surrender, then England will continue to live and will march on. It’s up to us to convince the others that this is a battle worth fighting for.
