Identity Evropa members attended this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference. Hosted at the Gaylord Hotel in National Harbor, Maryland, the event featured many noteworthy figures, including Donald Trump and Nigel Farage.
I attended CPAC with another member of Identity Evropa leadership on Friday. After we arrived, we met up with other IE members throughout the day. Some traveled alone; others attended the conference with their fellow College Republicans; and a few were there in a professional capacity.
We spent the day meeting people, handing out Identity Evropa business cards, and discussing Identitarianism with conservatives. Thanks largely to the Left’s anti-White rhetoric and blatant unwillingness to tolerate any restrictions on immigration, CPAC attendees were quite interested in what we had to say. While some did, of course, reject Identitarianism due to it being “collectivist,” these disagreements were civil and infrequent. And those who objected to our ideas were unable to tell me when minorities were going to begin flocking to conservatism, or if right-wing politics would be electorally viable with a non-White majority.
Some of the speakers, most notably Marion Le Pen, did focus on issues like immigration and national identity. However, CPAC was defined predominantly by concerns over economic issues – taxes in particular. Thankfully, younger attendees disliked this, and instead wanted to hear about more Trumpian things, like immigration and the wall. This is a good sign, because while these issues are not exclusively Identitarian, mulling over them for long enough will surely lead one to Identitarian conclusions.
Although Identity Evropa is not a political organization, I strongly encourage our members to become active in politics. This can take many forms, including joining the College Republicans or running for local office. Trump has given us an opportunity to transform the GOP from a vehicle for Conservatism Inc. to one for Nationalism, and it’s up to us to seize the opportunity.
While it’s unlikely that the GOP will become an explicitly Identitarian party anytime soon, there is hope for it to become non-interventionist, protectionist, immigration restrictionist, etc. – all good things for Americans of European heritage, even if they’re not explicitly marketed as such.

This past Friday, Identity Evropa activists visited the 5th Precinct in Minneapolis to create a memorial to Justine Damond. The goal, quite simply, was to honor Justine’s memory and remind the world that her killer, Mohamed Noor, still walks free.
Damond, a 40-year-old woman who held dual Australian and American citizenship, called 9-1-1 on July 15 to report what she believed to be a sexual assault taking place behind her house. Two officers arrived at the scene and drove slowly down the alley with their headlights turned off. When Justine came outside in her nighttime attire and approached the squad car, one of the officers – Mohamed Noor – shot her from the passenger seat, firing across the lap of his partner.
This holiday season, Identity Evropa activists ran a campaign titled “Keep Tradition Alive.”
As the name would suggest, this campaign was designed to remind people of European heritage that maintaining traditions is important. For without traditions, we are severed from our past and thus lose sight of our future.
This campaign primarily consisted of numerous banner drops done across the country. In one case, I, along with some Identity Evropa members, went to the Christmas Village in Philadelphia, where we sang “Silent Night” to an enthusiastic crowd.
A compilation of our Christmas activism can be seen in the following video:
On behalf of Identity Evropa, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas (or Yule!) and a Happy New Year.
Identity Evropa activists, in conjunction with Mike Enoch and Richard Spencer, protested against amnesty on Saturday outside of the White House. CEO Eli Mosley took the opportunity to express his concerns and frustrations with the current administration, as Trump has failed to deliver on the promises made during his campaign.
The event concluded with demonstrators tossing their Trump hats toward the White House, signaling an end to Identity Evropa’s support for President Trump – unless, that is, his administration decides to follow through on making America great again.
Identity Evropa supports an immigration policy prioritizing secure borders, net neutral immigration, and high-achieving immigrants of European descent. If the United States fails to adopt these measures, our country will cease to be a bastion of innovation and advancement, and instead devolve into ethnic conflict, welfare parasitism, and left-wing authoritarianism.
On Wednesday night, Identity Evropa protested a screening of the film The Deportation of Innocence and the following panel discussion hosted by The Campaign to Defend Local Solutions, The League of Women Voters of Miami-Dade County, The Florida Immigrant Coalition, the South Florida Interfaith Worker Justice, and the Global Peace Film Festival in Miami. These organizations advocate for the disastrous “sanctuary city” policy, which encourages city and county governments to illegally ignore the lawful deportation orders of federal immigration authorities.
Sanctuary cities ignore federal law authorizing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to administratively deport illegal aliens. In addition, the groups specifically provide legal advice for illegal immigrants on how to avoid their deportation.
Mass immigration and open border policies increase crime, overwhelm our infrastructure and welfare system, and alter America’s historical demographics. Moreover, by sending a signal to illegal immigrants that no consequences will result from illegally crossing our border, a pulling effect is created, causing more economic migrants to abandon their homes, families, and communities to come to America. Mass migration harms the community in both the migrant’s home country and America.

Only a policy of remigration can repair the damages done to both countries. As such, Identity Evropa peacefully displayed a banner as a symbol of resistance toward mass migration and open borders. Only by securing our borders can we all secure our futures.
