Blood and soil is one of the rallying cries of the alt-right. It is a translation from the German Blut und Boden a phrase which originated in German 19th-century agrarian nationalist-romanticism, and which was adopted by the Nazi Ministry of Food and Agriculture. Under the original Nazis, it indicated then that the original descendants (Blut) belonged to the land (Boden), and was used as a ideology to support the Nazi eugenics program and the Lebensraum ideology. Vanguard America, a white supremacist group, also uses the motto, "blood and soil". As a symbol, they use either an eagle with a Roman fasces (modern symbol of fascism), or a crossed pair of fasces.

Needless to say, the application of this concept by neo-Nazis to the US is absurd.[1] White people are not indigenous to the US. Moreover, white people do not share a unified "blood" as Hitler envisioned it, given that they don't share a "natural" language or "natural" culture – Italians and Swedes do not speak Italian or Swedish in the US, and only pure Anglo-Saxons can claim English language and culture.
