“To Be American is to be British.” Says Vox Day

In this video, author, editor and publisher, Vox Day, makes the case that “American” is an ethnicity and that ethnicity is British.

It’s an interesting furthering of the idea Ann Colter made famous a few years ago, that America is not a nation of immigrants since it was settled and created by people from a “postage stamp” size area of the world – that being the British Isles and Holland.

Now, Vox is speaking for himself here. Neither him nor I are advocating for kicking non-British people out of the country or stripping them of American citizenship or anything ridiculous like that, so no one freak out please.

I thought this was an interesting discussion particularly the subtly between a “nation” and a “state.”
