03 11 11 - 19:01You have been trained by the biggest media engine the world has ever seen and its most powerful government. They have taught you to think in only two options: either you accept everyone everywhere everytime, or you're a racist/elitist/sexist/etc.
Nationalism doesn't fit into this rubric, which is why they constructed it.
Nationalism is separate from racism. Racism is feeling that a certain race is inferior or should be removed. Nationalism is also separate from IQ statistics, crime rates, skull shapes and other stuff like that.
Nationalism is this: recognizing that without a strong identity, our culture becomes a giant shopping mall with a cultureless gray race. Multiculturalism, commerce, and internationalism destroy that identity, which is formed from the bond between culture, language, customs, heritage and values. You either have a society with an identity, or something else has to fill in for that identity, and it is always politicals ("we're Communists" or "we're for Freedom") and commerce (consumerism = "freedom").
Those who do not accept nationalism as legitimate are afraid of its legitimacy and trying to shout it down. They do this by calling anything but multiculturalism "racist," even though multiculturalism is enforced mixing that destroys all heritages, all ethnies, and all races. That is genocide by any other name.
As mentioned here before, liberals -- who oppose nationalism -- are not a legitimate alternative to conservatism. They are those who adopt an artificial way of looking at the world, based in their own delusional outlook which insists the Ego is more important than Reality at large. Liberals are not unique; this delusional mentality can infect any group, including conservatives, but it's much harder for conservatives because they do not base their philosophy on the individual ego and its desires, judgments and feelings like liberals do.
The only legitimate politics is conservatism, which is better known as "consequentialism" or paying attention to the results of our actions more than our individualistic feelings about them. It is reality-based, not ego-based; it is thus the opposite of liberalism. All legitimate political views have a place within the conservative spectrum, which is huge, but sticks to reality unlike the liberal/leftist/Marxist/anarchist/Communist/Socialist/Democrat world.
You may know good liberals. They are in the grips of delusion. This is not uncommon; most people are delusional about at least one thing. It can be as simple as "smoking won't kill me" or "man, I'm good looking" or even "someday, I will be rewarded for my diligence in trimming my nails." Liberalism just deals with bigger issues, and because it embraces a victimhood-paranoid-defensive outlook, is inherently conquest-oriented, parasitic and violent.
Nationalism is part of conservatism. Why? Because it is a strategy for a healthy society that does not need a nanny/police state to override it, and a society that keeps commerce in check. You want capitalism and consumerism to take a back seat? Deep ecology? More meaning in life? Beautiful art, culture and learning? Then stick with conservatism, nationalism, tradition and possibly monarchism.
Leave liberalism to those who are lost in life, and need delusions of grandeur to keep their damaged egos (full of holes poked by child rape, failure at life, entry-level jobs, bad personal discipline, or simply miserable dating careers) afloat.
