Bob Whitaker

Robert "Bob" Walker Whitaker (b. 31 March 1941 in South Carolina ; d. 3 June 2017 in Cayce, Lexington, South Carolina) was an American white nationalist, writer and political activist. He was a college professor, international aviation negotiator, Capitol Hill staffer, Reagan Administration appointee, and writer for the Voice of America. He wrote numerous articles and three books in his own name. He is perhaps best known for being the creator of The Mantra, a strategy to fight white genocide. Whitaker resided in Columbia, South Carolina.


Robert Whitaker was born in 1941. He entered the University of South Carolina at age sixteen and was a Political Science instructor at the age of nineteen. He then received a scholarship to study for a PhD in economics at the University of Virginia. Two of his eight graduate instructors there later won Nobel Prizes in Economics.

Both future Nobel Laureates left the University of Virginia while Whitaker was there. His second reader for his dissertation, James Buchanan, was "forced to leave" when a new dean took over who had vowed to "clean out that nest of right-wingers in the Economics Department."

Whitaker was a professor of economics but was unable to complete his PhD because his field of specialization, Public Choice (the field in which the two graduate professors later won Nobel Prizes) was disliked after the faculty had been purged. He then became involved in political activism and intelligence work.

Whitaker worked with William Rusher, publisher of National Review, in turning the so-called "Wallace Democrats" into "Reagan Democrats." This was a move that respectable conservatives opposed vigorously. Whitaker’s 1976 book, A Plague on Both Your Houses, attacking both the liberal establishment and the watered-down Republican opposition, was a milestone in this campaign.

Whitaker worked on Capitol Hill from 1977 to 1982. During that period, two of his most personally gratifying accomplishments enjoyed today by all of us were saving the Hubble Telescopes and preventing the Internal Revenue Service from imposing racial quotas on private schools.

Despite his criticism of Ronald Reagan in A Plague on Both Your Houses, he was a Reagan appointee in charge of all civilian security clearances and federal staffing.

In 1982 Whitaker conceived and produced an anthology for St. Martin's Press, The New Right Papers. It explained the strategy that led to Reagan’s 1980 victory by the people, including Whitaker himself, who made it a reality while conservatives dithered.

Robert Whitaker left official Federal service in 1985. His third book, Why Johnny Can’t Think: America’s Professor-Priesthood goes into much more than just academia.


On Saturday, June 3, Robert Whitaker passed away in his sleep at the age of 76. His life should be commemorated by White Nationalists and the Alt Right given that he was one of the first to articulate white grievances against enforced multiculturalism in a way equal and opposite to how non-whites have always complained about whites. A palecon’s paleocon, Whitaker could be placed alongside Wilmot Robertson as an underground torch-bearer of white interests during the 1970s and 1980s. Most recently, however, he was best-known for his aborted presidential run in 2015 with the American Freedom Party, as well as his mantra, “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white,” which caused many people to think about white genocide and to become conscious of the anti-white racism of our establishment elites.[1]
