Le Pen is the French equivalent of
Americas Patrick Buchanan, who voices
similar concerns about Americas future in The Death of the West,
his latestand bestbook. The "mainstream" media has alternately
silenced and smeared both Le Pen and Buchanan. The controlled media affixes the usual
array of empty buzzwords and scare terms to Le Pen, including "racist,"
"fascist," "anti-Semite," "xenophobe,"
"intolerant," and so on. Astute observers know that if the media casts someone
as the Devil incarnate, then they must be doing something right.
Indeed, the leaders of the Wests Nationalist Right, including
Buchanan, Le Pen, Austrias Joerg Haider, and
Hollands Pim Fortuyn,
are "fighting the future," resisting the socialist-egalitarian program of the
New World Order. Their struggle to preserve the West is quintessentially noble and
The Nationalist Right in America can learn two lessons from Le
Pens victory. Stephens, a hostile journalist, ironically sums up these lessons in
his Jerusalem Post article. He notes that
"The leader of France's National Front party has, over the
course of four successive presidential elections, stood for exactly the same things, with
no attempt to moderate his views or soften his tone. Over the same time, the breadth of
his political appeal has also remained the same: between 15 percent and 20% of the
The first lesson is that we should always present a "banner of
bold colors, not pale pastels." The second is that the core electoral support for the
Nationalist Right will usually hover between five and thirty percent in Western
"democracies" during times of relative economic and political stability.
First Lesson: Radicals Uphold Standards and Set Examples
Le Pens message is stronger and more viable because it is the
direct, blunt truth. Radicals occupy a valued place: they keep things honest, and they
keep us awaresometimes painfully soof the ideals that we should be striving
for, even as we recognize that reality often falls short of those ideals. Too often, the
allure of some on the Right who seek an easy road to power, compromising with the System
via political maneuvering and "finesse," pull the teeth out of the agenda that
they presumably seek to advance, preventing real rightward political change. Le Pens
style, which the "mainstream" calls "extreme," is a virtue. Its
about holding the line, delineating clear standards, and maintaining integrity.
People who warn about "appearing too radical" so as to
avoid scaring off uninformed voters dont realize that politics change over time and
that people can be educated and convincedby events, if not words. Right now, as Jared Taylor once said, the true American Right is
"minoritarian." However, this is neither permanent nor inevitable. If America
can leap from George Washington to Bill Clinton, surely we can swing that same pendulum
back. Part of the solution lies in refusing to accept the Lefts claim to the moral
high ground. Why fear words like "racist" or "radical," for example?
The liberals are the "radical" ones in the whole context of American
historymost Americans before the 1960s proudly expressed the same views that men
like Buchanan or Le Pen do today. The liberals are also the true "racists" since
their planned New World Order endangers true racial diversity by imposing forced
integration and homogenization on all peoples and cultures the world over.
As time goes on, and the bitter fruit of liberalism continues to ripen in America, more
Americans will become receptive to ideas that now seem "radical." The media, for
example, will not always command the authority it does now with the public. This leads us
to Le Pens second lesson.
Second Lesson: Quality Counts, Not Numbers
Majorities do not determine truth, nor do wishes, feelings, or
emotions alter reality. In the end, what people "think" or "feel"
about anything, moderate or radical, is irrelevant. Reality is the final arbiter, not
peoples "sensitivities." Liberalism just does not workits cousin
failed in the Soviet Union between 1989-91 and it will fail here in the United States as
well. Total societal degradation and collapse can be the only
long-term outcome of socialist policies. If we didnt think liberalism was
incompatible with reality, wed be liberals. There is only one right answer,
and the Right has it. Even if no one in America ever agrees with the Right,
liberalism will still fail and the truth will out.
Majorities also do not generate political change. The Nationalist Right quite possibly may
never amount to more than a few percent of the population in Western countries. This is
fine, since the Lefts "core" is also only a small elite. Most Americans
are sheep, and 90% of them will sit on the sidelines. They always have and they always
will. Most people dont really think about the society they live in, but sort of
"go along" and accept whatever the elites, or their peers, or whatever looks
fashionable on the tube present to them as reality. It is quite a maddening phenomenon.
Fortunately, the Rights vanguard minority will ultimately prevail because we are of
higher quality than the Lefts rag-tag, affirmative action ridden team.
Think my analysis is wrong? How long do you think that the thin,
green band of Federal Reserve Notes now keeping things in place can hold off
Americas upcoming reality check? What do you think will happen when that band
The Purpose of Our Political Tactics
The so-called leadership of this country has made serious errors,
many deliberately and many unconsciously, and soon we will all have to face the
consequences. Our elites put into place policies that will eventually damage themselves as
much as they are damaging us regular Americans. Once the Left flubs up, and they will
because they have to by definition, we will seize control of these institutions and
promote our images and messages, at which time the American people will then agree with
us, because we will then be "fashionable." We are an elite-in-waiting, as Sam
Francis suggests in Beautiful
Losers, and our strategy is necessarily a counterrevolutionary and insurgent one.
We dissidents do not currently have the power to change the
direction of the country. We are forced to "ride it out" and see what we can
salvage when this ship hits the rocks as a result of years of the Left and friends manning
the helm. Right now, judging from the support given Gore and Nader in the 2000
presidential election, the American people lean moderate-left largely by inertia.
Supporting Gore and Nader is the "fashionable" thing to do in the eyes of their
peers. The media reinforces that image, along with the schools and other cultural
The purpose of our political agitation is not to convince a majority
of the American people that we are right, because we cant do that as long as the
news and entertainment media remain outside our control. Our task is to galvanize that
thinking 5% and keep the flame of the Old Faith alive, so that they will know what to do
and be able to do it effectively when the time comes. This means showing the American
people the intellectual currents that have been hidden from them, reminding them of
the way things used to be before the Left came to power. We must pull things out of the
Orwellian "memory hole," and make Americans aware of their true history, not the
Lefts version of it.
Our role now is one of aggressive, confrontational opposition-- to
act as gadflies, haunting and pestering the Left, starting a lot of "little
fires" for them to have to put out, reminding the Left that they will never achieve
the total "cultural hegemony" they desire. The Left may have taken our world
from us, but at least we can deny them their world while we prepare for the day of
From Stop to Go: The Situation of the Right
In an ideal world, we would never wish negative things, like an
economic collapse, on our own country and people, but we are realistically appraising the
situation and predicting where trends will lead. Some may misinterpret these comments as a
lack of patriotism, or accuse me of being an "America Hater." It is my hope that
they will see under the surface, at what we are really diagnosing here. I hope that those
who feel a loyalty to the more permanent things will come to see the true, dire situation
Years ago, the "mainstream" conservative Bill Buckley created the National
Review with the stated purpose of "stand[ing] athwart history, yelling
Stop!" In the early days of that magazine, its writers defended the White
Southerners approach to racial relations. Nevertheless, over time, conservatism
caved, and then morphed into Liberalism Literendered useless to Americans who had
looked to it for their inspiration and their defense.
Today, its too late to yell "Stop!," which is why we seem to be
paradoxically yelling "Go!" here. The true Right must now stand athwart history,
yelling, "We told you so! Move aside and let us clean up the mess you made."
