National Socialism and the Laws of Nature

“…It is Life alone that all things must serve.”

Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. I, Chap. 9, p. 215 (Manheim)

INTRODUCTION

A unique and compelling feature of the National Socialist worldview of Adolf Hitler is that, of all the various political movements and ideologies of the modern era, it alone is based solely on the Natural Order. Only National Socialism is grounded in reality, and not in phantasms of the human mind.

National Socialists believe that the universe is governed by natural laws, and that for Man to be happy and successful, he must first acknowledge that these laws exist; secondly, he must discover what they are; and thirdly, he must live in accordance with them. This is another way of saying that the universe runs according to the principles of Causality – that is, of cause-and-effect relationships – and that it does not operate on the basis of supernatural forces, or on the mental constructions and wishful thinking of intellectuals and ideologues, or on the religious fantasies of theologians.

Hitler made this clear from the beginning of his career in public life. Writing in his book Mein Kampf in 1924, he stated:

When Man attempts to rebel against the iron logic of Nature, he comes into struggle with the principles which he himself owes his existence as a man. And so his action against Nature must lead to his own doom… Here we encounter the objection [that] ‘Man’s role is to overcome Nature!’… But Man has never yet conquered Nature in anything, but at most has caught hold of and tried to lift one corner or another of her immense gigantic veil of eternal riddles and secrets, that in reality he invents nothing but only discovers everything, that he does not dominate Nature, but has only risen on the basis of his knowledge of various laws and secrets to be lord over those other living creatures who lack this knowledge… (Vol. I, Chap. 11, Manheim trans., p. 287)

And elsewhere:

Man must never fall into the madness of believing that he has risen to be lord and master over Nature – which is so easily induced by the conceit of half-education – but must understand the fundamental necessity of Nature’s rule, and realize how much of his existence is subject to these laws of combat and upward struggle. Then he will sense that in a universe where planets revolve around suns, and moons turn around planets, where force alone forever masters weakness, compelling it to be its obedient servant or else crushing it, there can be no special laws for Man. For him, too, the eternal principles of this ultimate wisdom hold sway. He can try to grasp them, but escape them never. (pp. 244-245)

The goal of National Socialism, then, is to consciously organize human society in accordance with the Natural Order. The postwar Danish National-Socialist Povl H. Riis-Knudsen thus defined National Socialism in a single sentence: “National Socialism is the application of the Laws of Nature to human affairs.”

The dominant thought-systems of today are uniformly based on the notion of human equality in one form or another: Multiracialism on racial equality; Marxism on economic equality; democracy on political equality; Christianity on spiritual equality. But when Adolf Hitler observed the world of living Nature, he saw that it was not equality, but rather inequality, that was ever-present. To be more precise, he saw that Nature operated according to the principles of structure and hierarchy.

There is structure and hierarchy both among the races of mankind, and also within the races. The hierarchy among the races he denoted as the Principle of Race, and that within each race as the Principle of Personality. He discusses this in depth in Volume II, Chapter 4, of Mein Kampf.

In a speech given in 1928, Hitler gave his own one-sentence definition of the National Socialist worldview: “All life is bound up in three theses: struggle is the father of all things, virtue lies in the blood, and leadership is primary and decisive.” Here “blood” symbolizes the Principal of Race and “leadership” the Principle of Personality. “Struggle” is the mechanism by which position in the hierarchy is determined.

The belief that life should be lived in harmony with the Natural Order permeated the whole of Hitler’s Germany, from the top to the bottom. It manifested itself not just in the political structure of the National Socialist state, but in every facet of society, including child-rearing, nutrition, forestry, animal rights, medicine and healthcare. The protection of the environment was a top priority. Truly, National Socialism was the original “green” movement!

The SS had a popular motto: “Know the laws of life and live in accordingly.” Another SS saying pointed to the spiritual dimensions of the National-Socialist worldview: “The Divine manifests itself in the order of Nature, not in supernatural miracles.”

The scientific community enthusiastically supported the restructuring of society in harmony with the Natural Order. On example of this was botanist Ernst Lehmann, who characterized National-Socialism as “politically applied biology.” In 1934, only one year into the NS era, he wrote:

We recognize that separating humanity from Nature, from the whole of life, leads to mankind’s own destruction and the death of nations. Only through a reintegration of humanity into the whole of Nature can our folk be made stronger. That is the fundamental point of the biological tasks of our age. Mankind alone is no longer the focus of thought, but rather life as a whole… This striving with connectedness, with the totality of life, with Nature itself, a Nature into which we are born, this is the deepest meaning and the true essence of National-Socialist thought. (Biological Will: Way and Goal of Biological Work in the New Reich, pp. 10-11)

It is easy for the unsuspecting or the misinformed to fall victim to the vicious, lying, Hitler-bashing, anti-NS propaganda that is everywhere today. Attempts to discuss the profound and life-giving character of Adolf Hitler’s National Socialism often get1662789_obc8c sidetracked and bogged down in ridiculous and ill-informed debates concerning the conduct of German military operations during the Second World War – as though that subject were more important than our survival as a race!

But one person saw clearly through the miasma of anti-Hitlerism even when it was at its height. The National Socialist philosopher Savitri Devi recognized the magnitude of Adolf Hitler’s achievements, and of the unique value of his teachings – not just to the Aryan race, but to all mankind. In her magnum opus The Lightning and the Sun (1958) she wrote:

In its essence, the National Socialist idea exceeds not only Germany and our time, but the Aryan race and mankind itself and any epoch; it ultimately expresses that mysterious and unfailing wisdom according to which Nature lives and creates: the impersonal wisdom of the primeval forests and of the ocean depths and of the spheres in the dark fields of space; and it is to Adolf Hitler’s glory not merely to have gone back to that divine wisdom … but to have made it the basis of a practical regeneration policy of worldwide scope … (The Lightning and the Sun, pp. 219-220, standard edition; p. 128, Pierce edition)

We live in a civilization and in a society that is about as divorced from the Natural Order as possible. That is why the our race is sick. That is why the our race is dying. Only by once again living in harmony with the Laws of Nature can we regain our racial health. There is only one movement which offers this salvation, and hence there is only one path to racial survival, that of Adolf Hitler and National Socialism.

A SOCIOBIOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE

Sociobiologists divide the animal world into three broad categories, based on whether or not they live in societies, and if they do, their degree of socialization. Animals which live in societies live in groups characterized by (1) hierarchy, and (2) cooperation. The three categories are:

1. Asocial animals, which either live solitary lives as individuals or else they live in groups without hierarchy or cooperation. Most felines (except for the lion) and orangutans are examples of animals who live as individuals. Schools of fish, flocks of birds and Thompson’s gazelle are animals who live in groups that are unstructured and the members of which do not cooperate with each other – basically they are collections of individuals.

2. Eusocial animals (essentially, bees, ants and their relatives) live in communities in which the individual does not exist for practical purposes – only the collective exists.

3. Social animals live in groups known as societies, in which there is hierarchy and cooperation. The individual has rights, but the rights generally subordinate to the welfare of the society. Most higher primates, including all of the great apes except for the orangutan, and most canines, are social animals. Human beings are social animals. We are not bees (for whom only the collective exists) and we are not tigers (for whom only the individual exists).

In human society, the individual has rights, but these must be balanced against the overall welfare of the group. There is inevitably some tension between the group and the individual, but in successful societies this it is managed so that neither suffers unduly.

National Socialist Germany is the modern society that has done this the best. As a social state, it stands in balanced mid-point between the hive-like, eusocial collectivism of communism (in which the individual exists only to serve state, and who has no rights at all), and the rootless, naked egoism of asocial libertarianism (in which the good of the whole is subordinate to the desires and whims of the individual).

This balance between the desires of the individual and the good of the racial community is exemplified in the Hitlerian dictum, “The right to personal freedom recedes before the duty to preserve the race.” (Mein Kampf, p. 255). This statement explicitly recognizes that there is a right to personal freedom, but that this right is subordinate to the common racial good.

The word “natural” is only problematic if someone is determined to see it as so. The opposite is “artificial.” The wolf is a canine that is the product of natural selection. The Chihuahua is a canine that is product of artificial selection. The society we live in today is an artificial society that is divorced from Nature. To be healthy as a race, we need a society that is structured in accordance with the world of Nature.

THEORY AND PRACTICE

Writing in 1980, the brilliant Australian National Socialist Dr. E.R. Cawthron, B.Sc. (Hons), noted that, “Just to speak in general terms about the laws of Nature serves little purpose.” Very true! Let us take a look at a specific natural law and its concrete application in National Socialist Germany.

In the above Introduction, it was noted that Adolf Hitler recognized that inequality, not equality, was the norm in living Nature, and that with regard to Man, this inequality manifested itself both between the races, and within each race.

As a corollary to the law of racial inequality, Hitler also discerned a law concerning “the urge toward racial purity.” He wrote:

[M]en without exception wander about in the garden of Nature; they imagine that they know practically everything and yet with few exceptions pass blindly by one of the most patent principles of Nature’s rule: the inner segregation of the species of all living beings on this earth…Every animal mates only with an animal of the same species…Only unusual circumstances can change this…(p.284)

He further noted:

The result of all racial crossing is therefore in brief always the…lowering of the level of the higher race. (p.286)

And he offered an example:

Historical experience shows countless proofs of this. It shows with terrifying clarity that in every mingling of Aryan blood with that of lower peoples the result was the end of the cultured people. North America, whose population consists in by far the largest part of Germanic elements who mixed but little with the lower colored peoples, shows a different humanity and culture from Central and South America, where the predominantly Latin immigrants often mixed with the aborigines on a large scale. By this one example, we clearly and distinctly recognize the effect of racial mixture. The Germanic inhabitant of the American continent, who has remained racially pure and unmixed, rose to be the master of the continent; he will remain the master as long as he does not fall victim to defilement of the blood. (p. 286)

Thus we can see the development of Hitler’s logic with regard to natural law in this instance:

• He begins by postulating a law or principle that holds true for all of living Nature.
• He further shows how Man is specifically included in this law’s jurisdiction.
• Taking the discussion out of the realm of theory, he gives a concrete example of the expression of this law in the real world.

But it does not stop there. On September 15, 1935, Adolf Hitler, as chancellor of the German Reich, signed a law into effect prohibiting race-mixing between “citizens of German or related blood” and Jews. This act was formally titled the “Law for the Protection of German Blood and German Honor.”

Mainstream historians have termed this the “Nuremberg Race Law,” and claimed that it was the sinister first step toward the extermination of European Jewry. But it was nothing of the sort.

Rather, it was a preliminary and far-sighted attempt to tentatively codify Natural Law as State Law. Adolf Hitler had begun to restructure German society so as to bring it in accordance with Nature – just as he had advocated a decade earlier in Mein Kampf.

LINCOLN ROCKWELL’S ‘LAWS OF THE TRIBE’

George Lincoln Rockwell is the founder of postwar American National Socialism, and one of the foremost disciples of Adolf Hitler’s thought of all time. He is remembered primarily as a man of action, which is unsurprising given the dramatic and dynamic course of his life. Yet he was also a man of towering intellect. In addition to numerous essays and articles, he authored two books, This Time the World (1962), his political autobiography, and White Power, which was published posthumously in 1968.

Like Adolf Hitler, Lincoln Rockwell recognized that Man was a part of the Natural Order, and that he was in no meaningful way separate or distinct from it. In Chapter 15 of White Power, entitled “National Socialism,” he lists five “Laws of the Tribe” that govern the social organization of all social animals (see Part Two). They are true for wolves as well as for elephants, for dolphins as well as for chimpanzees – and for Man as well. In a human context, by “Tribe” Rockwell means Race or folk or ethnicity.

Here are Rockwell’s Five “Laws of the Tribe”:

1, The Law of Biological Integrity;
2. The Law of Territory;
3. The Law of Leadership;
4. The Law of Status; and
5. The Law of Motherhood or Family

In White Power, he discusses four of the five principles or laws in some depth. By Biological Integrity, Rockwell means both the instinctive urge to protect the exclusive gene-pool of the tribe, but also the love-hate dichotomy that this generates. He writes:

The two instincts are equally important. Love is not “good” while hate is “evil” — which is the canard so dearly loved by the Jews, liberals, hippies, queers, and half-wits…

Love, the natural healthy kind, is indeed what makes the world go round, and it is the most beautiful, holy miracle we ever see here on earth.

But without a deadly hate of that which threatens what we love, Love is an empty catchword for hippies, queers, and cowards…

Biological Integrity: absolute, total and uncompromising loyalty to one’s own racial group based on a consuming love, and absolute, uncompromising hatred of any outsiders who intrude and threaten to mix their genes with those of the females of the group. (pp. 445-446)

By “Territory” he means in the first instance the land or real estate that the tribe lives on. In National Socialist Germany, the close relationship between Biological Integrity and Territory was encapsulate in the phrase “Blood and Soil.” But he also expands this to include the principle of private property. Here Rockwell draws a fundamental dividing line between National Socialism and Jewish, Marxist socialism.

Rockwell specifies “Leadership by the best.” By the best, not by the most popular, nor by the wealthiest, and certainly not by those most eager to kiss Jewish posterior.

“Status” he defines as the natural place or rank of each individual within the tribe. Everyone in the tribe is not “equal” to everyone else – but each person has worth and value, and a role to play in society.

Rockwell does not mention Motherhood and Family, beyond including it in his list of Five Laws. He was writing in the mid-1960s, when everyone in White society still had a healthy appreciation of the traditional family. He apparently thought that it was unnecessary to describe it further. Perversions such as homosexual “marriage” were so far over the social horizon that they were not even visible in 1967. One can only imagine what he would have to say about such manifestations of racial decadence and social decline. The traditional family always has been, remains, and always will be the basic social building block of every healthy White society.

Rockwell was not a trained anthropologist, and in listing the Five Laws, he was deeply indebted to Robert Audrey, author of books on this subject such as African Genesis and The Territorial Imperative. But although it was outside the field of his formal knowledge, Rockwell was intelligent enough to recognize the truth when he saw it, and to portray it from a National Socialist perspective.

These Five Laws will someday form the basis for the National Socialist New Order which we, the heirs of Hitler and Rockwell, will build in North America.

The History of American National Socialism – Part 8: The National Alliance and Smaller Organizations (1970-1985)

william-luther-pierce-teacher

Dr. William L. Pierce addressing a meeting of the National Alliance.

By Martin Kerr

By any imaginable standards, the National Socialist White People’s Party was the predominant NS organization in the United States throughout the 1970s and into the early 1980s. But it was not the only NS group. Except for the National Renaissance Party and NSDAP-AO, all of these other formations began as spin offs or splinters of the NSWPP. For the most part, these other groups did not amount to much. Sometimes, the number of letters in their grandiose names exceeded the number of people they had on their mailing list. Nevertheless, they need to be included in any complete history the NS movement in America – and three of these formations (the NA, the NSDAP-AO and the NSM) went on to play a significant role in the Movement after the end of the NSWPP.

In his 1968 essay, “Some Guidelines for the Development of the National Socialist Movement,” Matt Koehl noted, “Every dynamic force in history produces centrifugal tendencies. This has been true of the Christian church and the Marxist sects, as well as the National Socialist movement.” Professional Jewish “hate watcher” Leonard Zeskind, comparing White Nationalism in America to an army, said that the movement consists solely of “generals and privates,” because as soon as a general promotes one of his privates to captain, the newly-minted captain declares himself to be a general and starts his own army. There is certainly truth in the observations of both Koehl and Zeskind. Personality clashes differences, especially among the leaders, were the main reason that there were so many organizations all professing the same basic beliefs.

Here, listed alphabetically, is a roster of some of the NS-oriented formations active in the US during the 1970s.

1. American Mobilizers (New York City)
2. American Nazi Party (two different groups, one based in Hollywood, California, and the other in Phoenix, Arizona)
3. American White Nationalist Party (Ohio)
4. National Renaissance Party (greater NYC area)
5. National Socialist League (San Francisco/Los Angeles)
6. National Socialist Liberation Front (Los Angeles)
7. National Socialist Movement (Ohio)
8. National Socialist Party of America (Chicago)
9. National Socialist Party of North Carolina
10. National Socialist White Workers Party (San Francisco)
11. National White People’s Party (North Carolina)
12. National Youth Alliance (later the National Alliance)
13. NSDAP-AO (Lincoln, Nebraska)
14. United White Peoples Party (Cleveland)
15. White Power Movement (West Virginia)
16. White Youth Alliance (later the National Party, New Orleans)

This list is not inclusive, and there were other small groups that came and went without leaving a mark on the political landscape.

These various organizations all shared a common ideology in a broad sense. Sometimes there were minor theoretical differences. The NWPP quibbled with the NSWPP over the inclusion of the word “socialist;” the NSL was a homosexual group, whereas all of the others were stridently anti-homosexual; the UWPP was openly Christian, while the NA and the NRP argued against Christianity.

But overall, all of the groups listed agreed on a certain body of core beliefs, namely,

• that the White race was superior to all other races and needed to be defended;
• that the Jews were the enemy of all mankind and needed to be opposed;
• that race-mixing was wrong;
• that Blacks and other non-Whites (but especially Blacks) needed to be expelled from the US;
• that communism was a creation of the Jews and was evil; and
• that the United States had fought on the wrong side during World War II, and it would have been better if Hitler had won the war.

It would be tedious and pointless to examine each of the organizations listed in detail, as most of them were insignificant, even by the modest standards of American National Socialism. But there were some among them that do deserve discussion.

WILLIAM PIERCE AND THE NATIONAL YOUTH ALLIANCE

In 1968, Alabama Governor George Wallace mounted a presidential campaign as an independent candidate, opposing both the Republicans and the Democrats. Wallace presented himself as a disguised racialist, who would recapture the federal government from the traitors and “pointy-headed bureaucrats” and reinstitute a White Constitutional republic

It was all a lie: Wallace was just a two-bit political huckster bent on riding a massive wave of White discontent over the direction the country was heading. But nevertheless, his campaign released and focused White resentment and anger as never before in the post-World War II era. In the November election, he won nearly 10 million popular votes, and carried five southern states, totaling 46 electoral votes. Although Wallace himself was not a committed White racialist, probably 99 percent of those who voted for him were Whites who had a positive sense of racial consciousness.

There were three different ways that American National Socialists reacted to the Wallace movement: Some, such as the NSWPP, denounced Wallace as the fraud that he was. Others ignored him as irrelevant to their efforts. But one man, at least, was shrewd enough to realize that the Wallace movement presented a unique opening for hardline racialists. That man was Willis Carto, whom we discussed in the sixth instalment of this series. Carto was a shrewd judge of human character, and he knew that Wallace was a false White Messiah. But he saw a wonderful opportunity to harness the tremendous racial energy that Wallace had unleashed.

Carto formed a student organization, “Youth for Wallace,” as an independent adjunct to the official Wallace movement. The goal was to amass a huge mailing list of young racially conscious White people who were attracted to the Wallace campaign, and to use that mailing list for a post-electoral effort. And this he did.

Following the election, he transformed the YFW into a new organization, the National Youth Alliance. He recruited Dr. Revilo Oliver to help him in the new enterprise. Carto had had a personal connection with the deceased neo-fascist ideologist Francis Parker Yockey, and was the publisher of a popular edition of Yockey’s 1948 masterwork: Imperium: The Philosophy of Politics and History. Because of this connection, Carto used Yockey’s thought as the ideological basis of the NYA. Yockey was not really a racialist as we consider the term today: rather than a racialism rooted in biological reality, he championed a wispy, insubstantial “spiritual” racial ideology. Oliver was not especially enthusiastic about Yockeyism, but went along with it, later explaining that Yockey’s thought was “the best option open to us at the time.”

Carto’s NYA never went very far. He appointed Louis Byers as his front man. Byers published one issue of a newspaper called Attack!, held a few meetings and distributed copies of Imperium. Within a year, the NYA was moribund.

As previously discussed, Dr. William L. Pierce had split from the NSWPP in mid-1970, at the same time the nascent NYA was foundering. After the split, Pierce found himself at looses ends politically. He issued two multi-page public letters to the mailing list that he had accumulated. In the first letter, he gave his reasons for leaving the NSWPP. In the second, entitled Prospectus for a National Front he put forth his vision for a new American NS movement. He signed both letters “Heil Hitler!”

See: (https://whitebiocentrism.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=632)

In essence, what Pierce proposed was an organization that would retain basic National Socialist ideology but would be stripped of the external NS trappings that had characterized the movement since Rockwell formed the American Nazi Party in 1959: there would be no Swastikas, no uniforms, no glorification of Adolf Hitler and no fixation with National Socialist Germany. Serious political activism would replace the publicity stunts that Rockwell had used to propel himself into the headlines.

Pierce’s letters met with a lukewarm response. Although people respected his intellect and his dedication, he had not yet proven himself as a leader. Few were ready to throw in with him in starting a new organization from scratch, especially since the NSWPP was flourishing.

At some point, Pierce sat down with the NYA’s Byers. He had given it his best shot, Byers said, but had been unable to get the NYA off the ground, even after investing a substantial sum of Carto’s money and most of his own savings into the venture. He offered the group to Pierce, if he wanted it, contingent on Carto’s approval. Pierce said that he was interested. Carto went along with the proposal, with the assumption that Pierce would be just be another front man as Byers had been, and that he, Carto, would call the shots from behind the scenes.

There was not a whole lot to turn over to Pierce. He received a mailing list of 15,000 names, most of which dated back to the Youth for Wallace group and were over two years old. But he also received Carto’s backing. Pierce produced a second issue of Attack! along the lines he had discussed in his Prospectus. He jettisoned the Yockey angle and resurrected NYA as a group based on biological racialism. The tabloid was an immediate success. For a cost of $2,000, he received $6,000 back in the mail, and he could now separate the wheat from the chaff in the old NYA mailing list.

It was soon clear that Pierce had no intention of being a front man for Carto. He was his own man and would run the NYA as he saw fit. Carto was outraged. There was a brief power struggle from which Pierce emerged victorious. By early 1971, Pierce had his own group.

Had he not taken over the NYA, Pierce would have doubtlessly gone on to form a new group of his own. However, with the resources of the NYA at his disposal, meager though they may have been, he was able to move forward more rapidly than he would have otherwise.

The first NYA facility was in Washington, DC’s, Georgetown neighborhood. Today Georgetown is toney and upscale, but back in the early 1970s it was decidedly low-rent. A two-story brick building was provided to Pierce by Carto. On the ground floor was the Western Destiny Bookstore. The phrase Western Destiny was a nod to Yockey, whose acolytes called themselves “Destiny Thinkers.” Part of the stock came from the NSWPP’s George Lincoln Rockwell Bookstore, which had been run by Robert Lloyd. Lloyd had sided with Pierce in his split with Matt Koehl, and the contents of the bookstore came with him. The rest of the stock came from Carto’s own Noontide Press operation. Above the bookstore was Pierce’s office, where he produced Attack! and carried out routine administrative tasks for the Alliance. The bookstore was manned by Pierce’s first two followers, who had come over to him from the NSWPP.

However, after he broke with Carto, Pierce lost the use of the facility. He eventually relocated the NYA office to Crystal City, across the Potomac River in South Arlington. He would have different offices in Crystal City over the years, until he finally moved the operation (then greatly expanded) to Hillsboro, West Virginia, in August 1985.

The NYA presented itself to the public as an activist group, but the reality was that it had few activists. In the four years its operations, two small, low-key picket-line demonstrations were its only organized public activities. In 1973, Pierce testified against Secretary of State nominee Henry Kissinger before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. He stated that Kissinger, as a Jew would favor the interests of Israel over America. But for the most part, the NYA and Pierce kept a low profile.

Most of its energy and resources went into producing and distributing Attack!, which quickly became a “must-read” publication in pro-White circles. Although it had some agitational content, its strong point was thoughtful, in-depth essays by Pierce on a wide range of racial and societal topics. At first, Pierce had to write most of each issue himself. In time, however, he was able to attract other writers who were impressed with his intelligence, realism and seriousness. One of these young recruits was Mark Weber, who went on to become a leading revisionist historian and head of the Institute for Historical Review.

Another feature of Attack! was “The Turner Diaries.” This was a serialized novel, an episode of which appeared in each issue. Pierce used the format of an adventure story set in the near future to present his ideas concerning race and revolution. In 1978, the episodes of this series were collected and published as a novel. The novel proved to be immensely popular and successful: hundreds of thousands of copies have been printed in several different editions, and for a while it could even be found in mainstream bookstores across the US. This gave Pierce’s core message an audience far beyond the relatively small readership of Attack!

As the 1970s wore on, the premises on which the NYA were founded eroded. The upheaval and turmoil of the Vietnam War era subsided, and the dynamic radicalism of the 1960s gave way to a prosperous society based on conspicuous consumption. As noted, the NYA had been founded as a student organization, with membership limited to those under 30 years of age. Pierce recognized that he needed to make some adjustments to fit the changing situation.

THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE

In February 1974, the NYA was reorganized as the National Alliance. In May of that year, Pierce adopted the Life Rune as its symbol. In 1977, Attack! newspaper was replaced by the National Vanguard tabloid. In May 1982, Pierce retired the tabloid format, which was designed for mass distribution, and relaunched National Vanguard as a magazine printed on glossy stock and aimed at a more select audience. With occasional interruptions, the print version of National Vanguard continued until 2009, at which time it was temporarily suspended. It exists today in an online format at https://nationalvanguard.org.

Although later it attracted enough followers to stage impressive public demonstrations, the NA, like the NYA before it, kept a low profile its first years. In terms of recruitment, it focused on quality, rather than quantity. Unlike the NSWPP, which had a political focus, or the NSWPP’s successor organization, the NEW ORDER, which defined itself in spiritual terms, the National Alliance was an educational organization. The content of National Vanguard reflected this. A sales division, National Vanguard Books was created; the NA’s extensive booklist was the envy of every pro-White group, and even attracted attention from like-minded formations abroad. The simple list was replaced in 1984 by a magazine-format illustrated catalog. In 1983, Pierce recruited Kevin Alfred Strom. Strom’s first major project was compiling and producing a huge, portfolio-sized volume called The Best of Attack and National Vanguard Tabloid.

Internally, Pierce continued to develop his movement’s ideology. In serialized fashion, like The Turner Diaries, he wrote a comprehensive history of the White race stretching from remote prehistory through the second half of the 20th century. It was called “Who We Are.”

Although he was a practical man, who kept his attention focused on the important tasks immediately before him in building the NA, he also had a reflective side to his personality. His reflections on Man and Race, and their place in the Universe (or Cosmos), resulted in Pierce founding Cosmotheism. This was the philosophical or spiritual dimension of the National Alliance worldview. Or perhaps it is better to say that it is Cosmotheism that is all-encompassing, and the NA is its political manifestation at this point in history. Although his focus on the NA and the challenges before it kept him from developing this new belief in depth, he spent enough effort on it to author three short essays which serve as its basic texts:

• The Path (1977)
• On Living Things (1979)
• On Society (1984)

As I have written before, if our Race survives the existential crises which now beset it, William Pierce will not be remembered by future generations as the author of The Turner Diaries, or even as the founder of the National Alliance, but rather as the man who first codified the Will of Nature as Cosmotheism.

In August 1985 – at roughly the same time that Matt Koehl moved the headquarters of the NEW ORDER to Milwaukee – Pierce relocated the national office of the NA to Hillsboro, West Virginia. Further discussion of the evolution of these two organizations in the late 1900s and early 2000s lies beyond the scope of this article.

NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY OF AMERICA

Another split occurred in the NSWPP at roughly the same time that Pierce broke away. This led to the creation of the National Socialist Party of America, which lasted until the early 1980s.

Frank Collin was the leader of the Chicago Unit of the NSWPP. He was half-Jewish: his father was Max Simon Collin (born Cohn), a German Jew who had been interned in the Dachau detention facility in the 1930s, before emigrating to the United States. Frank Collin’s mother was of Irish-Catholic descent. Collin concealed his Jewish heritage when he joined the NSWPP. In 1970, the NSWPP headquarters in Arlington received a tip concerning Collin’s father. National Organizer Robert Lloyd investigated the allegation by examining the pertinent immigration and birth records, which were available to the public. He determined that Collin was indeed half-Jewish.

Collin was asked by the NSWPP to step down as the Chicago leader, but he refused. This caused a split in the local group, with hardline party loyalists remaining with the NSWPP, and Collin and his personal followers breaking away to form the NSPA. Collin dishonestly told his members that he did not have any Jewish descent. Despite the hard evidence against him, his followers chose to believe him.

The NSPA was based in the Marquette Park neighborhood on Chicago’s west side, where George Lincoln Rockwell had successfully organized White resistance to racial integration in 1966. The party headquarters was called Rockwell Hall, and the group enjoyed a high level of support among the area’s besieged White population. The NSPA occasionally ran candidates for public office. In 1975, Collin standing for alderman, received 16 percent of the vote.

Although it was a tiny group with only a handful of members, it received massive nationwide publicity on two occasions.

The first of these was the “Skokie controversy.” The NSPA was told that it would be unable to use Marquette Park for its White Power rallies unless it posted a “public safety insurance bond” of $350,000 (!) with the city. The small group, with no base of financial support to speak of, was unable to raise the amount. Instead, it announced that it would march in Skokie, Illinois, a community with a large Jewish population, many of whom were reputed to be “Holocaust survivors.” When the city of Skokie prohibited the march, Collin took it to court for violating his First Amendment rights. The case wound  through the court system, eventually finding its way to the Supreme Court. In the end, Collin was allowed to march in Skokie, but declined to do so. The rally deposit for public parks required by Chicago was also struck down.

Two victory rallies were held by the party. The first was a White Power rally in Marquette Park, where some 5,000 boisterous Whites turned out to congratulate the NSPA on its success. A small contingent of Jewish Defense League members showed up to counter-protest at the first rally, but were run out of the park by the pro-NS crowd. Another demonstration was held in downtown Chicago, this one for the benefit of the media.

The NSPA also garnered major worldwide publicity for its participation in the Greensboro, North Carolina, shootout between Klansmen and National Socialists on one side, and members of a Marxist sect calling itself the Communist Workers Party on the other.

The North Carolina chapter of the NSPA had originally been yet another NSWPP splinter group called the National Socialist Party of North Carolina. It was led by Harold Covington, a former NSWPP activist and staff member. In 1976 he merged his mini-party with the NSPA and was appointed “Deputy Party Leader” by Collin.

The CWP had been agitating local Negroes against the Klan in the futile belief that this would make the Negroes support communism. A series of skirmishes between the Klan and their NSPA allies and the CWP culminated in a “Death to the Klan” rally organized by the Reds in a Black neighborhood of Greensboro. The CWP taunted the Klan, calling them cowards, and it dared them to attend the rally to counter-protest.

The rally was held as scheduled on November 3, 1979. The Reds were startled when a caravan of cars containing 12 Klansmen and four NSPA members drove to the rally site. (Covington refused to go along, claiming that as Deputy Party Leader, his life was “too important to risk.”) Recovering from their initial surprise, the Communists attacked the vehicles. The Klansmen and National Socialists left their cars and engaged in a brawl with the Marxists. At some point, the Reds pulled back and opened fire on the men from the convoy with handguns. One Klansmen, Harold Flowers, was wounded by gunfire. The Klansmen and NS’ers then retrieved long guns from the trunks of their vehicles and returned fire, killing five of the Reds and wounding a dozen others.

Sixteen members of the Klan/NS convoy were arrested for murder. They were subsequently found not guilty by an all-White jury, on the grounds that the Reds had shot first and the men were defending themselves when they fired back.

This was a good showing on the part of the NSPA, but it proved to be their last hurrah. In December 1979, Collin was expelled from his own party after evidence was discovered by NSPA members proving that he was pedophile who had molested young boys in the Rockwell Hall headquarters. This information was subsequently turned over to the police, who arrested Collin in January 1980. He was charged with multiple counts of sexual abuse of a minor. Upon conviction of the charges, he served three years in jail. He has since reinvented himself as “Frank Joseph,” a self-described neo-pagan and expert on Atlantis and similar subjects.

Covington briefly took over the NSPA. He ran what was left of the party from his Raleigh, North Carolina office rather than Rockwell Hall. Sometime in 1981 or 1982, he abandoned the party and moved to Ireland. Another NSPA officer, Michael Allen, then took command before finally dissolving the group in the mid-1980s.

NSDAP/AO

The initials NSDAP/AO stand for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei Aufbau- und Auslandsorganisation, which is German for “National Socialist German Workers’ Party Development and Foreign Organization.” Unlike the other groups listed here, the NSDAP/AO did not view the United States as its major field of operations; rather it was formed as a propaganda base for the German NS movement. Any and all open manifestation of National Socialism was strictly illegal in both West Germany and East Germany in the 1970s (as they remain so today in the reunited German state). The purpose of the NSDAP/AO was to produce hardline NS material in the US, which would then be smuggled into Germany.

The NSDAP/AO was formed in 1973 by Gerhard Lauck, an American of German descent. Lauck, who was only 19 years old at the time, was encouraged in his efforts by former members of the German-American Bund. In March of that year, he published the first issue of NS Kampruf (“NS Battle Cry”), a German-language National Socialist publication. The NSDAP/AO also published leaflets, stickers and posters. It began with modest press runs of a few thousand, but within two years it was printing hundreds of thousands of pieces of material at a time.

Sometimes this literature was mailed directly into Germany. However, because of interference by the German police, Lauck eventually developed a network that allowed him to send bulk shipments of material to countries bordering Germany where National Socialism was legal, such as Denmark. It was then smuggled across the border for distribution to underground NS cells.

In 1974, Lauck entered Germany for organizational purposes. He was ordered deported, and eventually allowed himself to be arrested by the police.

Also in 1974, the NSDAP/AO began to involve itself in the American NS movement. Lauck initially tried to form a working relationship with Matt Koehl, who was the leader not only of the National Socialist White People’s Party, but also of the World Union of National Socialists. WUNS had German and other European contacts. However, neither man fully trusted the other, and so Lauck cast about elsewhere for American allies. He eventually settled on an alliance with Frank Collin and his NSPA.

In April 1975, the NSDAP/AO issued its first English-language publication, the NS Report. Eventually he merged it with Collin’s irregularly-published tabloid The New Order and adopted the other publication’s name.

Lauck lent his political support to NSPA activities and attended some of them in person. In 1980, NSPA leader Collin was arrested for child molestation and was replaced by Harold Covington, who purchased the Rockwell Hall headquarters. Lauck soon broke with Covington and kept his distance from the American NS scene for the next two decades.

The NSDAP/AO continues its work to this day. In addition to English and German, it has expanded its operations to include material in over two-dozen languages. Its main website is: http://nsdap.info/.

NATIONAL SOCIALIST MOVEMENT 
AND THE NATIONAL SOCIALIST WHITE WORKERS PARTY

The National Socialist Movement, which alive and healthy in 2018, began in 1976 as a letterhead organization run by Robert Brannen and James Mason. The group conducted no activities, other than publishing a small photocopied newsletter. In April 1978, it merged with the National Socialist White Workers Party.

The NSWWP was an offshoot of the San Francisco Unit of the NSWPP. It was headed by Allen Vincent, an Old Fighter from the Rockwell years. The NSWPP in Northern California had been the subject of a documentary film entitled California Reich. It was nominated for an Academy Award in 1976, and was later screened in Cannes. Vincent was the central figure in the film. After the film’s release, he broke with Matt Koehl and started his own mini-party in the San Francisco bay area. It held occasional meetings and public activities and opened the Rudolf Hess Bookstore. The store was in a predominantly non-White area and was quickly stormed and destroyed by an angry mob. Vincent and his followers made a narrow escape out the back door.

At some point, both Brannen and Mason lost interest in the NSM/NSWWP. Brannen, the group’s chairman, turned it over to Clifford Herrington. Herrington had been in the NSWPP and a variety of splinter formations, and also ran his own Satanic group called the “Joy of Satan.” In the 1990s, Herrington left the group and named Jeff Schoep as his successor. Surprisingly, Schoep proved an accomplished organizer and activist, and by 2000 he had made the NSM the largest and most-successful NS group in the US since the NSWPP was dissolved in 1983.

James Mason went on to form the Universal Order, another letterhead group, which combined traditional National Socialist doctrine with the teachings (such as they are) of the homicidal cult leader Charles Manson.

NATIONAL SOCIALIST LIBERATION FRONT

The NSLF was another NSWPP-breakaway, led by Joseph Tommasi. He had been the most impressive and successful of the NSWPP’s local leaders. He ran the Los Angeles Unit of the party out of a large Swastika-decorated farmhouse in the LA suburb of El Monte. Tommasi was a talented public speaker and organizer and had a charismatic personality. At a time when many NSWPP units struggled to raise a dozen men for local demonstrations, Tommasi could put 40 to 50 troopers in the street. By most political metrics, this is a pitifully small number, but by the low standards of post-War American National Socialism it was noteworthy.

Unfortunately, Tommasi was impulsive, hot-headed, and undisciplined. He viewed his NSWPP chapter as an independent NS franchise, that he could run however he saw fit. Commander Matt Koehl, however, considered each local unit to be subordinate to the party’s national organization. Koehl repeatedly tried to bring Tommasi’s operation into line with the rest of the party, but the 22-year-old Tommasi was stubborn and refused to comply. In 1973, Koehl reluctantly removed Tommasi as the Los Angeles Unit leader. In March of 1974, Tommasi broke from the NSWPP to form the National Socialist Liberation Front.

The NSLF, supposedly, was committed to “building the National Socialist revolution through armed struggle.” Tommasi, however, was limited in how much armed struggle he could actually undertake, since the group was heavily infiltrated by the police from the moment of its inception. Instead, he formed an alliance with an anti-Castro Cuban group based in South El Monte. The Cubans would commit small acts of violence against local Marxist organizations, and by mutual arrangement the NSLF would publicly take the credit for them.

Actual NSLF activities were largely limited to attacks on the NSWPP headquarters and its personnel, against which Tommasi continued to harbor a grudge. For their part, the police did not care if the “Nazis” beat each other up. In fact, they preferred that the two groups expended their limited energy and resources fighting each other, rather than in public outreach.

On August 15, 1975, Tommasi was shot dead on the steps of his former NSWPP headquarters when a confrontation he initiated with two NSWPP security officers turned violent. One of the men later pled guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to six months in jail. Following Tommasi’s death, the NSLF was led by David Rust, but within a few years Rust found himself in prison on weapons charges. Periodic attempts were made to revive the group by James Mason, Karl Hand and others. These attempts were unsuccessful.

NATIONAL SOCIALIST LEAGUE

The National Socialist League was an organization in Los Angeles and San Francisco for homosexuals. Homosexuals were not allowed in NS or related groups, which it fact, were vociferously anti-homosexual. Thus, the NSL was in a category of its own, seeking to combine National Socialism with “the struggle for sexual liberation.” The NSL was founded by Russell Raymond Veh, a former NSWPP activist who left the party after he belatedly discovered that it was hostile to his sexuality.

The NSL undertook no public activities. What its private activities were one can only imagine. It published a newsletter, initially called NS Kampfruf (no doubt plagiarized from Gerhard Lauck’s publication of the same name), but later changed to NS Mobilizer. The NSL lasted from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s.

* * *

We will not chronicle or document the other groups listed at the beginning of this article. With the notable exceptions of the NA, the NSDAP/AO and the NSM, these minor formations – some of them very minor indeed! – all tell the same story: A disgruntled NSWPP member declares himself to be the new Führer and proceeds to lead his corporal’s guard of followers into obscurity.

Taken together, these smaller groups cut a poor figure. Indeed, they hurt the overall prospects of American National Socialism by opening up the movement to ridicule, and by making it seem unappealing and unsavory to disaffected Whites who might otherwise consider National Socialism in a positive light. Yet for good or for ill, they are part of the historical record.

The next installment of this series will provide a critical analysis of the post-World War II National Socialist movement in America.

George Lincoln Rockwell for Beginners

george-lincoln-rockwell-card-image-2018-800x445

He’s speaking to YOU, White Man!

August 25, 2018 marks the 51st anniversary of the assassination of George Lincoln Rockwell. Rockwell is the father of both contemporary, post-1945 National Socialism, as well as the modern White Nationalist movement.

Unfortunately, many people new to National Socialism know little more about him than his name.

Here is the authorized biographical sketch of Rockwell that was published by the American Nazi Party in the 1960s. Our comments follow.

=========================================

Who Is George Lincoln Rockwell?

George Lincoln Rockwell was born in Bloomington, Illinois, the home of his maternal grandfather on March 9, 1918. His father was a very successful headline comedian from 1912 until about 1935. His ancestors were German, French, English and Scottish, numbering among them many Revolutionary War figures, back to Marie Antoinette, the French queen.

Rockwell was in Bloomington only until he was old enough to get out of the hospital, when he was taken on the vaudeville circuit by his parents. He then spent some time in New Jersey, New York and California, but most of the time in Bootbay Harbor, Maine.

He attended Hebron Academy, a prep school near Lewiston, Maine, after which he entered Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, majoring in philosophy. In college, Rockwell enjoyed and did well in science and other objective courses but fought blindly and instinctively against the “sociology” and other similar departments which, unknown to him, were then preaching the Marxist environmentalism and egalitarianism, which have played such havoc with our human, biological sciences.

Leaving Brown in the middle of his junior year, when it became obvious that the US would get into World War II. Rockwell enlisted as a Seaman in the United States Navy in Boston, Massachusetts. By the tie of the entrance of the US into World War II on December 7, 1941, he had entered Naval Aviation, and became a cruiser and battleship scout pilot and a fighter pilot. He served aboard the USS Omaha in the South Atlantic and off North Africa during the invasion. He was then sent to the naval photographic school for pilots and assigned to the USS Wasp and sent to the Pacific. He also became a commander of forward air control operations for Marine Corps assault troops. He was at Guadalcanal, Guam and other Pacific “hot spots.” At the end of World War II, he was commanding officer of a squadron in Hawaii, and had earned nine decorations.

American Nazi Party Founder George L. Rockwell

George Lincoln Rockwell in his Arlington, Virginia, headquarters, 1965.

Released from active duty, Rockwell attended Pratt Institute Art school in New York, working part time in advertising and commercial art. In 1948, while still at Pratt, he won first prize of $1,000 in the National Society of Illustrators competition for a full page newspaper ad for the American Cancer Society.

While still in the ready reserves as commanding officer of a squadron in Washington, DC, he launched a new magazine, U.S. Lady, for the wives of US servicemen.

In 1949, Rockwell founded the first big national advertising agency in the state of Maine. Recalled to active duty for the Korean War in 1950, he trained Marine and Navy pilots in close support of troops, and then was transferred to Iceland, where he became the commanding officer of a squadron at Keflavik.

About this time he became deeply concerned about the way that all he had fought for in two wars was being turned over to communism.

He noticed that almost all of the convicted communist spies and traitors, such as Julius Rosenberg, Ethel Rosenberg, Nathan Silvermaster, Harry Dexter White (Weiss), Robert Soblen, Morton Sobell, David Greenglass, Harry Gold, Miriam Moskowitz, Fred Rosenberg, and Sam Cohen (chief of the communist spies caught in Canada), and most of the communist intellectual leaders, such as Herbert and Bettina Aptheker, were racial Jews. He was especially shocked to find that Who’s Who in Jewry, published by the Jews themselves, listed many of these atheist communists very proudly as Jews, even though he had believed that the Jews were just a religion.

Observing that Hitler has said that communism was Jewish, and that the Jews were out to degenerate the White race by subversion and race-mixing, Rockwell bought a copy of Mein Kampf and read it, even though he thought he already knew what was in it from all he’d heard. He was astonished to find that it was actually a brilliant analysis of the mess that Western Civilization has gotten into, and the only plan he’d ever seen to save the White race and its culture.

For a number of years he tried to work with various rightwing organizations, all of whom believed, as he did for a while, that it was necessary to disguise one’s admiration for Adolf Hitler and National Socialism.

Finally disgusted with the emptiness, the weakness, the hypocrisy and especially the cowardice of the so-called “conservatives,” Rockwell determined to attack at last, flying the Swastika banner which came so close to saving Western Civilization and the White race. “Since our Cause is fundamentally the truth,” he explained to horrified friends, “I do not see how we can win by lying or misrepresenting what we are for fear of the Jews.”

“The only times in the hundred years of the rise of communism that this plague has actually ever been BEATEN, it was beaten not by ‘conservatives,’ but by radicals and fighters whom the enemy calls ‘Nazis’ and ‘fascists,’ and whom they really fear. Only in Germany, Spain and Italy has communism ever been conquered. We are damned fools to be afraid to follow the only examples that have ever worked!”

He hung up a Nazi banner in front of his home and dared the Jews to do something about it. They–and their friends and dupes–came in droves to “do something about it,” but Rockwell survived all the shootings, rocks and other Jewish “arguments.” The publicity gave him such a much needed platform from which to call the attention of his fellow Americans to the increasingly desperate situation of America and our great White family of people.

Speaking at colleges, at great city rallies and to private groups, Rockwell has won a larger and larger circle of responsible Americans who begin to realize that the old pray-talk-petition-and-stamp-licking societies will not save America and our White race.

Rockwell believes that it is now time for the White Man to take America back from the aliens, the minorities and the terrorists now in power under the demagoguery of cheap politicians. To do this we must win not the few in the rightwing, or the upper classes, but the millions and millions of our people. And to win these people we must offer something beside a lot of empty platitudes about freedom and the Constitution. Only National Socialism has a positive and progressive program for all the people, rather than just the upper class, and combines a concern for the purity and protection of the great White race with a fighting determination to stop all further mongrelization of our people.Rockwell Centennial Poster

In five short years, Rockwell has led the American Nazi Party from a tiny and scorned band of roughnecks willing to take to the streets to fight treason and race-mixing, until today the Party has headquarters in Washington, Chicago, Los Angeles and most major cities, and commands a grudging respect of the enemy, even though there is a powerful censorship of the American right-to-know of what Rockwell is doing, as shown by an article in the Spring, 1965, issue of the Columbia Journalism Review by Ben H. Bagdikian.

The Party publishes The Rockwell Report (monthly), The Stormtrooper Magazine (quarterly) and National Socialist World (quarterly), plus bulletins available to Party members only.

Rockwell is presently organizing the WHITE GUARD–young, White fighting men to help protect society from the Black and Red revolution which has already overwhelmed police departments in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cleveland and other cities.

=======================================

Comments by James Harting: For most of his career as commander of the ANP, Rockwell lived a marginal existence on the fringes of the American political scene. He was misunderstood and rejected by the vast majority of his fellow White Americans, whom he dearly loved. He and his “tiny band of roughnecks” were alternately cursed, ridiculed and ignored by the mainstream media. They fought street battles without end with communist and Jewish thugs who sought to silence them by force, and spent many a night in jail, courtesy of hostile politicians and corrupt police officials.

But throughout it all, Lincoln Rockwell’s warrior spirit of courage, integrity and heroic defiance was never broken.

His persistence finally paid off in 1966, when thousands of White men, women and youth in Chicago followed his leadership in a spontaneous uprising against efforts to integrate all-White working class neighborhoods. The uprising culminated in the now-famous White People’s March of Sept. 10, 1966, in which hundreds of ordinary Whites followed Rockwell’s leadership under the sign of the Swastika.

Tragically, within a year Rockwell was dead. On August 25, 1967, this authentic American hero fell beneath the bullets of a cowardly Marxist sneak-murderer.

Yet, although Rockwell’s body died on the black August afternoon, his spirit lives on in the hearts and minds of White men and women everywhere who continue to draw strength and inspiration from his heroic example.

In addition to countless, speeches, interviews, articles and essays, Rockwell wrote two books:

This Time the World (1962), his political autobiography; and
White Power (1966), published posthumously, and which was the basic National-Socialist and White Nationalist ideological handbook for a generation.

Print copies of both books are available from NS Publications, at http://nspublications.com

In 1960, at the beginning of his career as an open National Socialist, Rockwell wrote In Hoc Signo Vinces, a short manifesto in which he summarized his ideas and political strategy. You may read it online here:

https://neworderorg.wordpress.com/2017/09/11/in-hoc-signo-vinces/

On January 1, 1967, Rockwell re-named his party as the National Socialist White People’s Party. In 1984, the NSWPP was reorganized by Rockwell’s successor, Matt Koehl, as the NEW ORDER. It continues to this day.

The United States Was Founded as a White People’s Republic

cg-db

“Before the coming of the first Europeans, the concept of ‘America’ didn’t exist — either as a nation or as a geographical term.”

By James Harting

We hold this truth to be self-evident: that the United States of America was at its inception founded as a country of, by and for White people, regardless of what it has become or degenerated into today.

The elites ruling America today, and the Jews prime among them, have replaced the traditional definition of America as a White people’s country with the peculiar notion that it is a “propositional nation.” This pipe-dream holds that that anyone, from anywhere in the world and of whatever race or ethnicity, can become an American if they agree with certain sugary platitudes about racial equality, equal opportunity, democracy, and so forth, and if they embrace some version of the capitalist fantasy in which everyone can theoretically become a millionaire if they just work hard enough.

But the indisputable historical reality is that America was not founded as a “propositional nation” open to everyone in the world, but as a White people’s republic.

BEFORE THE FOUNDING FATHERS

NEW ORDER founder Matt Koehl commented on the racial origins of the United States in his 1973 essay, “American: A Racial Mission.” He wrote:

“Before the coming of the first Europeans, the concept of ‘America’ didn’t exist — either as a nation or as a geographical term.

“American history did not begin until the first White men set foot on these shore. Our history began as an extension of European – i.e., White, Western, or Aryan – history.

“The pre-Columbian aborigines scattered across the North American continent and periodically engaging in inter-tribal warfare certainly did not regard themselves as ‘Americans,’ or for that matter, as members of one, single community.”

Even before it was an independent country, America was already a racial-political expression of the White Man.

The racial character of society in Colonial America is revealed by an act passed by the Virginia Assembly in 1670, which prohibited free Blacks from owning White slaves.

That the US was conceived of as a White people’s republic is manifest in its very foundational documents, such has the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America.

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

Proponents of the dishonest notion of racial equality LOVE to quote the following passage of the Declaration of Independence:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, and that they are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Stirring stuff, and when ripped from its historical context and cited in isolation, it does apparently support the bizarre concept of racial equality.

The reality, however, is that Jefferson was speaking metaphorically, not literally, and within a very circumscribed definition of “all men.” He himself owned dozens (perhaps hundreds) of primitive Negro slaves, none of whom he considered as the equal of any free White man.

In penning this passage, Jefferson was paraphrasing the Virginia Declaration of Rights, authored by George Mason. That document holds that “all men are equally free and independent” before the law. This sentiment would be understood in the context of the times to contrast with the British legal notion, that all men were not equal before the law, that is, that the royalty and nobility had legal rights that ordinary free citizens (“commoners”) did not have. It was further understood that by “men,” Mason and Jefferson meant White, male, adults – and no one else. (Mason, it should be noted, was another slave-holder, along with George Washington and other of the Founding Fathers.)

In his book Notes on the State of Virginia (written 1781, published 1784) Jefferson comments at length on the superiority of White people to Negroes, including the following passages:

“In general, their existence appears to participate more of sensation than reflection…

“Comparing them by their faculties of memory, reason, and imagination, it appears to me, that in memory they are equal to the whites; in reason much inferior, as I think one [Black] could scarcely be found capable of tracing and comprehending the investigations of Euclid; and that in imagination they are dull, tasteless, and anomalous…

“…[B]lacks, whether originally a distinct race, or made distinct by time and circumstances, are inferior to the whites in the endowments both of body and mind. It is not against experience to suppose, that different species of the same genus, or varieties of the same species, may possess different qualifications.”

Elsewhere in the Declaration, Jefferson revealed his attitude (and those of the other Founding Fathers who signed the document) towards the race gently referred to today as “Native Americans,”

“[King George III] has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.”

“Merciless Indian savages!” That is certainly not a ringing endorsement of racial equality and tolerance!

The Declaration was written in 1776. Some eleven years later, the US Constitution was drafted. It is much more racialist, both implicitly and explicitly.

THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

Although it unfortunately does not always use racially explicit language, the Constitution is essentially a White racialist document. It divides the population of the US into three categories: (1) Negro slaves, called here “Other Persons; (2) Indians; and (3) “We the People,” meaning, obviously, White people, if we subtract Negroes and Indians from the total population.

The Preamble reads:

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and to our Posterity, do hereby ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

The key word here is “Posterity,” which the dictionary defines as “the offspring of one progenitor to the furthest generations,” that is to say, direct descendants. The direct descendants of “we the people” of 1787 are Whites of European heritage, not Eastern

European Jews, Syrian refugees, mestizos from south of the Rio Grande or any other non-Whites.

The low estimation in which the Founding Fathers held Blacks is reflected in the so-called “Three-Fifths Compromise,” found in Article I, Section Two, paragraph three. It reads:

Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all other Persons.”

The meaning here is that for purposes of apportioning representatives to Congress, which is determined by the population of each state, Blacks counted for only three-fifths of a White person. That Negroes are referred to here as “Other Persons” is especially telling: the Constitution specifically sets them apart from “We the (White) People.”

Also mentioned in that paragraph are Indians, who excluded from being counted for purposes of representation and taxation. Further in the Constitution, Congress is granted the specific power of dealing with Indians, who are not defined or considered as citizens:

“Congress shall have the Power … To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes…[Art. I, Sect. 8, para. 3]”

The Constitution was ratified in 1788; it was not until 1924 that Congress granted citizenship to all Indians in the US who were not explicitly granted citizenship by a previous treaty.

So we see that although it did not always define the racial character of the new American republic clearly, the Founding Fathers were thinking and acting along racial lines.

THE NATURALIZATION ACT OF 1790

Perhaps the Framers came to some belated realization that they needed to speak more clearly concerning race and the law. The Naturalization Act of 1790, setting out who may become a citizen of the new American nation, states explicitly,

“That any alien, being a free White person, who shall have resided within the limits and under the jurisdiction of the United States, for the term of two years, may be admitted to become a citizen thereof…”

You cannot get any clearer than that.

The racial requirement for citizenship was upheld when the act was renewed in 1798 and again in 1802. It was not until 1870, in the wake of the Civil War, that full citizenship was extended to Blacks, described specifically as “aliens of African nativity and to persons of African descent.” Even then, Negro citizenship was recognized as a special exception to the otherwise White character of the US.

This can be seen by the “Chinese Exclusion Act” of 1882. This was a Federal law that prohibited Chinese from entering the United States. It remained in effect until 1943, when it as repealed because China was an American ally in the Second World War.

And, as noted earlier, although individual exceptions were made now and then, American Indians were not granted citizenship as a race until 1924.

The United States of America was founded as a country of White people, by White people and for future generations of White children.

Anyone who says otherwise is either ignorant or a liar.

INTO THE DARKNESS

Today, in 2018, the majority of elementary school children in the US are non-White, and the percentage of non-Whites grows each day as the percentage of White children declines: that is the future that the ruling elites have in mind for us.

The US is, supposedly, a democracy. Yet the government has never asked the White population if they agreed to allow themselves to become extinct. There has been no public national debate. Instead, White genocide is being foisted on us without consultation or permission.

Those White people who are racially aware need to decide whether they are going to meekly acquiesce to their extermination–or if they are going to rise up and fight back.

A wise man once wrote:

“If, through the instrument of governmental authority, a people is being led to its destruction, then rebellion is not only the right of every member of that people, it is his duty.”

and

“Those who want to live, let them fight; and those who do not want to fight in this world of eternal struggle do not deserve to live.”

Aryan Ethos and Jewish Ethos

b59e506db7d28a9851c57d4101a73d91

By Dr. Peter H. Peel

In the world of music, the sublime geniuses of Richard Wagner and Ludwig van Beethoven tower above all other composers as the Himalayas tower above the Alps. But whereas Beethoven was politically naïve, Wagner possessed a profound insight into philosophy, politics and the nature of society.

Wagner’s masterpiece of masterpieces, his cycle The Ring of the Nibelungs, speaks to us on several levels. It is the glorious evocation of the central myths of our Aryan ancestors and reaches into the depths of our own souls to awaken race-memory and consciousness. But it is also an allegory of the modern world.

In 1898, George Bernard Shaw wrote a brilliant little book called The Perfect Wagnerite in which he claimed that the first three operas, at least, were really a devastating denunciation of the squalor, greed, and life stultifying nature of capitalism. I believe that he made a very convincing case. What he omitted – I suggest from a failure to see it rather than any arrière pensèes – was that Wagner, if a “socialist,” was really a racial socialist and was fully aware of the eternal Jewish enemy. Two very important figures in the Ring – Alberich and Loki (or Loge) symbolize two aspects of the destroying Jew. There is a third figure, Mime, Alberich’s brother, who represents the haggling, huckstering, swindling, cheating, whining “little” Jew, but with him I shall not concern myself at this time

Alberich – dwarfish, ugly, greedy, vengeful – appears at the very beginning of the operas, Das Rheingold (The Rhine Gold), but note the play on words: rein means “pure” or “innocent” in German. The gold, which lies in the river Rhine, is a beautiful, unsullied, natural thing: but it has, Alberich knows, magical powers which can giver its possessor domination over the world. In order to steal the gold Alberich is compelled to foreswear love, nature and beauty, all of which he willingly does. The gold ceases to be innocent and become accursed – a source of evil and ultimate destruction for all who possess it as well as an instrument of tyranny over all others.

In Alberich we see the Jewish obsession with loveless sex. Jewish sex-life is notoriously joyless and unsatisfying. Jewish literature makes not bones about admitting this. And this partly explains the endless Jewish promotion of pornography, public indecency toleration of sexual aberrations, filthy speech and so forth.

As for Loki, he is not really a god: he is only partly of the blood of the Aesir, the race of the gods. Physically, he is like the blond Jew – a particularly repulsive type whose blond hair is usually borderline-kinky, and whose blue eyes have that pale, codfish, heavy-lidded look. I need not elaborate. The reader can choose his own examples. I have in mind one prominent Bryiddish actor and one Hollywood “comedian.” They are to the true Nordic type what Yiddish is to High German – an obnoxious caricature and a distortion. Loki is the “assimilated” Jew, the “cultured” Jew. And see what Wagner makes of him! He is witty – in a destructive way – cynical, cunning, restless and utterly treacherous. In his secret depths he loathes and despises the Aesir, in particular Wotan. But the Aesir rely on him for advice, as so many Aryan kings and presidents have relied on the advice of Jewish schemers. Indeed, the same fatal error of judgement has been made by many Aryan rulers. One might begin the list with the Pharoah who was swindled by Joseph and his brothers, or certain Turkish sultans who were encouraged to debauchery by their Jewish physicians.

Although Loki’s advice brings apparent success in the short run, it always brings increasing problems in the long run, and these culminate in total and final disaster. And this is his long-range intention. He glories in enmeshing the gods deeper and deeper in an ineluctable doom. At the end of the fourth opera, Die Götterdämmerung, it is Loki’s fire which immolates Valhalla and utterly destroys the race of the gods.

Thus, Alberich and Loki, in their separate ways, symbolize the biologically-determined Jewish drive to destroy, subvert and pervert the whole Aryan ethos and culture. They symbolize the Jew’s implacable and irreversible enmity – his compulsion, as it were, always to defecate on a well-scrubbed floor. To what we may variously call the Aryan, Germanic or Gothic cultural ethos, the Jew is utterly alien – at least when he is true to himself. A few Jews have made pathetic attempts to “assimilate.” Usually, such Jews appear to have been physically of partly Aryan blood. The effort is always doomed to failure. The Jew who tries to “pass” becomes a hopelessly tormented figure, acutely schizoid. But so does the Judaized Aryan – a matter of considerably more importance to us. To be genetically of one race and try to embrace the culture, ethos and world-outlook of another is about as fruitless an endeavor as it would be for a cholera bacillus to attempt to live symbiotically with its human host. The natural biological function of the cholera bacillus is to prey upon and ultimately destroy its host. The natural function of the host is to destroy and eliminate he agent of disease. “Mit dem Juden,” said the Man Who Died For Us in the ruins of flaming Berlin, “gibt es kein Paktieren, sondern das harte Entweder-Oder.” *

With the heroic and tragic end of the Third Reich in 1945, the world has entered a period of Jewish ascendency which is now total and, as a result of which, our civilization is sick nigh unto death. Regardless of any other considerations, the symbolism of a president of the United States handing his resignation to an immigrant Jews secretary of state is artistically perfect. ** But despair is never in order. Throughout the Western world there exist numbers of courageous and enlightened Aryan brothers who will never surrender and never cease to fight. In the end we can and shall win. Compromise is impossible. Assimilating ourselves to the Jewish ethos, or living contentedly in a Judaized world, is as psychologically and biologically impossible for us as it is for the Jew to live in inner peace in our world.

One of the most dangerous errors of those who are only partially awakened to the truth is that the Jew can ever be dissuaded, converted, or educated out of the destructive tradition of his race. Destruction, subversion, revolution, and corruption are his biological weapons in the eternal struggle of life forms for power and paramountcy. The Jew’s instincts, if not his conscious intelligence, grasped this, at the latest two millennia ago. After several unsuccessful attempts at revolt, the Levantine world accepted its military impotence in relation to its Aryan-Roman masters. It turned instinctively to the subtlest of biological weapons.

It evolved a religion which preached a sentimental, universal benevolence (which it miscalled “love”) and which emphasized the unimportance and transient nature of worldly concerns and focused on a putative afterlife. It decried all that was great and powerful and noble, and apotheosized the weak, the feeble, the humble. This, it successfully undermined the innocent will-to-power of the Aryan overlords and brought ruin to the whole glorious Graeco-Roman civilization. Where religions had previously served as the repositories of the myths and legends of a particular people (as Judaism and Shintoism still do) and thus served to protect their uniqueness and integrity, the new religiosity was universal and implicitly democratic. God was no longer a god of a particular people, embodying their highest concepts, but an enormously remote Ruler of the Universe. Man was correspondingly smaller and more contemptible, more of an insect. And this meant all men. Caesar was equated with the meanest slave. The differences between men were held to be trivial by comparison with their universal status as children of the new deity.

A strange thing happened – and one of immense good fortune for us. The decayed Graeco-Roman world perished, but a new Gothic-Germanic Aryan civilization began to emerge and reach it sublime heights in the High Middle Ages. It adopted much of the nomenclature of the new religion and devised elaborate rituals and ceremonies. It even produced the great Gothic cathedrals as an expression of its highest aesthetic values. But under the superficial trappings of the Levantine original it preserved a full-blooded and robust Gothic-Germanic-Aryan ethos which was never seriously inhibited by the nominal religion. The European serf, from Russia to France, was usually of an inferior racial strain – the miscegenated product of what Houston Steward Chamberlain called “the chaos of the peoples.” No medieval noble regarded the base serf as this “brother.” The so-called “Crusades,” for all their conscious idealism, were only Viking raids writ large, and the Crusaders slaughtered the Saracens with joyful gusto, boasting that they rode into Jerusalem with the blood of the infidel over their horses’ fetlocks. The Saracen was no more their brother than the serf.

Not until the rise of modern capitalism did the Jewish ethos once again begin to assert itself. At first it was through the agency of grim and gloomy non-Jews, obsessed with the Old Testament. With the French Revolution, the floodgates of Judaism opened wider and with the general emancipation of the Jews during the following century – which Wagner opposed – the battle for dominance was more fully joined. To this day, alas, most of our folk are not even aware that a war is even in progress. It is an unawareness which will, if not rectified, end our civilization as it ended the Graeco-Roman.
