Solidarity or Stigma: On My Speaking at an Upcoming NSM EventBy: Matthew Heimbach (22 responses.)
Our cause features all the cliquishness, snobbery, and resentment of a middle school cafeteria. And to an extent, that’s okay. I celebrate diversity, after all. I celebrate the diversity of beliefs, cultures, subcultures, personality types, and strategic visions packed into the big White Advocacy tent. While our meaningful differences should be respected and protected, we must also learn to collaborate and communicate on some level if we hope to ever rise above our current milieu of fighting and backbiting factions.
I will be speaking at a national rally for the National Socialist Movement on November 9th in Kansas City. Contrary to what the ADL and SPLC would have you believe, I’m not becoming a big scary “neo-nazi”. The NSM believes that one’s faith is beside the point in our political struggle, while I’ve always been and always will be outspoken about my Christian faith. It will remain front and center. I have several differences with the NSM and its positions, and I won’t be joining the NSM, but it’s an organization with an impressive record of street activism and grassroots organizing on behalf of White working folks.
Why would I retain rabidly leftist journalists and non-White nationalists in my contact list on the one hand, then turn away fellow White Nationalists with my other hand? If I were doing that, I would probably be doing it for the same reason most of our movement does it, the dreaded fear of “stigma”. The Southern Poverty Law Center has built up a lumbering mega-million powerhouse industry out of milking our fear (both as a movement and as a people) of being “associated” with groups and individuals proscribed by the powers that be.
Our enemies don’t fall for this game. When the Republicans accused Obama of palling around with unrepentant Marxist terrorist Bill Ayers, Obama casually shrugged it off. The canonized saint of liberalism, Ted Kennedy, murdered a young woman! Heck, leftist Senator Robert Byrd was a former recruiter for the Ku Klux Klan, an association he was permitted to let slide because he betrayed his racialist and traditionalist views in the service of his new master: Mammon.
I’m not playing their game. I’m not going to throw my allies under the bus to achieve “respectability” in their eyes. I would rather be under the bus with Jeff Schoep and numerous other NSM leaders and supporters who’ve put their reputations, careers, and lives on the line in defense of our people than jockeying for a front seat in the busload of anti-White and anti-Traditional scumbags running us all down. If enough of us who are under that bus can learn to come together as a unified force, we’ll have the strength to pick the bus up and throw it aside.
I encourage all Traditionalists to read Matt Parrott’s article–Never Leave a Fallen Comrade–over at Counter-Currents because he is able to sum up very well how throwing others in the movement under the bus is counterproductive. “Superficially, it seems like abandoning a vilified comrade is the more pragmatic choice. He is, after all, something of a liability. Yet, every martial culture and every effective vanguard does exactly the opposite. They never leave a fallen comrade. Even our own decadent and derelict military tradition clings to this in its soldier’s creed, ‘I will never leave a fallen comrade.’”
I’ve already lost a few supporters and allies over my ecumenical stance. The British Integralist Party threw an epic tantrum when we recently reached out to the British Union of Fascists, declaring us all “autistic” and banishing us for life from their lunch table. A handful of “friends” have unfriended me on Facebook over my refusal to denounce or marginalize this or that group. I would rather be “linked” by the SPLC’s Kevin Bacon “Six Degrees of Separation” Game to the proven street activists and their supposed “baggage” than retain the respect of this System and those who never actually threaten it. They’re not my public.
I declare here and now that I will never again leave behind a fallen comrade. From the intellectuals to my brothers and sisters in the White slums of America, I am united in the struggle for White survival. Members of the Church Militant, religious skeptics, Fascists, Traditionalists, Southern Nationalists, Northwest Front members, Monarchists, Skinheads, National Socialists, website commentators, writers, Klansmen, Libertarians, Christian Identity, concerned citizens, soccer moms, and everyone in between must rally together now, for our race is at the Eleventh hour and the fifty ninth minute in the fight for our very existence.
Anyone who supports the 14 Words is an ally of mine in this common struggle.
I do not ask anyone to compromise their beliefs, as I know that I will not, but the crisis facing our people necessitates that we set aside our differences in order to “secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.” No more division comrades, no more infighting. I look forward to marching with my Southern Nationalist comrades in the League of the South in Murfreesboro TN in October, speaking with the NSM in November, attending pro-White intellectual conferences, and working alongside great minds and dedicated White activists of all stripes in this Crusade for our survival.
