H&D Video Podcast #1

H&D has posted our first video podcast, recorded on 13th July.

Assistant editor Peter Rushton reflects on the extraordinary elections in the UK and France. Were these turning points for ‘nationalism’? In what ways can Farage’s and Le Pen’s parties be termed ‘nationalist’?

And where does our movement go from here?

H&D is of course primarily a print magazine and will remain so: we don’t intend to become frequent video streamers.

But we shall occasionally post video podcasts, in addition to articles on our website and social media posts – as part of our contribution to the essential reassessment and rebuilding of racial nationalist politics.

The new video podcast is also now available with Spanish subtitles.

Four in a week – hard copy publications refuse to die!

Just like the proverbial bus, you can be waiting for ages for a nationalist magazine that you subscribe to – then two, three or even more all come along together!

Well, that is what really happened – for the first time in recent memory – this past week.

First issue #120 of Heritage and Destiny was mailed out, shortly followed by issue #69 of Broadsword. The day after issue #886 of Candour was mailed out, shortly followed by issue #185 of The Supplement.

Those of you who remember Walter Carr – a nationalist veteran, who was active in the movement both pre and post WWII – will recall he was not a fan of what he termed “back-slapping”, i.e. congratulating oneself, for your own achievements.

However, I think in this case “back-slapping” should be the order of the day.

Those who invest the time, money and effort to produce a hard-copy nationalist magazine, in this day and age, when almost everyone in the movement (especially the young – and the tight who in many cases are not so young), want everything online and/or for free – should not just be congratulated, but supported by those in our so-called movement.

In issue #100 of Heritage and Destiny which was published in January 2021, I wrote an article entitled “H&D Joins the Nationalist 100 Club”, here is a quote from that article, which is just as relevant today (maybe even more so) as it was three years ago.

It’s frequently pointed out to me by many social-media nationalists (most of whom don’t even subscribe to H&D as they find £28 too hard to part with) that it would be much cheaper and much easier if we were to go completely online. Dump the hard-copy, with the envelopes and stamps into the history dustbin, like most of 21st century nationalism has already done – they cry.

Even most websites seem old-fashioned and out of date, to this new breed of revolutionaries. They tell me that H&D should be blogging, and tweeting (I admit we do tweet a bit!), but most of all carry on the fight for Race and Nation via Facebook, as that’s where the real battle is! Be it on smart phones, tablets and/or other assorted “devices”, that’s how we will win our country back – they tell me!

However, I must beg to disagree. They are welcome to carry on their heroic crusade online, and I’m sure it must do some good for the cause (I think?), but there are whole groups of our people out there who do not go on Facebook, Twitter, Telegram, Instagram and TikTok, or even have internet access. Many do not even bother to go on the internet, they don’t have smart phones, tablets or even laptops, either by choice or because of their individual life situations.

And these are not just elderly people (although to be fair they do make up a sizeable part of the non-internet crowd). There is also an admirable minority among the under-60s who have made a deliberate and calculated decision to remove these machines (including TVs) from their lives forever. I spoke with one of these guys a while back in Devon and he told me that it was amazing, living with no internet and just having a phone that you can talk through! He explained it was as if you had left the big city, full of mental smog and you’re out in the clear, fresh air again and you can actually think that much more clearly.

Oh, if only I wasn’t the editor of H&D, and if I didn’t have to do what comes with the job, I’d like to join my Devon comrade in his world – well maybe for a few hours anyway!

The social-media nationalist crowd don’t seem to understand that someday – maybe pretty soon with the way things are going (i.e. with Covid) – we are going to lose the internet. Boris and his Indian friends will just turn it off, and there’s little or nothing we can do about it. When that happens, since we lack the courage to physically oppose them, we will have to take the old photocopy machines out of the garage, dust them off, and rush downtown to stock up on paper, ink, envelopes and stamps again.

I remember speaking to a group of youngsters from National Action after a JTMM and telling them this was going to happen, sooner rather than later, and the sheer look of horror in their faces said it all. I explained to them, that I was not sure at the time how this would happen, but one of these days we are no longer going to have access to the internet.

It may come via some diktat from Downing Street or Thames House, that just begins with the arrests and jailing of bloggers and social-media posters for simple dissent (as recently happened in Australia), or because the balloon will at least partially go up and internet service will go down, or be interrupted by civil disorder, economic collapse or cyber-attack.

Hard-copy publications like H&D where our people are actually required to sit down and read a block of text for content, which few people born after 1980 and almost no-one born after 2000 or so can do, are also still necessary because actual literacy, as opposed to looking at images on an electric screen, is a vital skill that White people must re-acquire and preserve in the dark days to come.

That is why hard-copy publications like H&D, must keep going, for as long as possible. But can we keep going as a hard-copy magazine – perhaps for another twenty years? Well the odds are against us, but who knows what the future may bring?

If you are one of the many nationalists (probably over 90%) who read the H&D website and Social-Media accounts, but avoid putting your hand in your pocket to pay for the hard copy magazine (or even send a donation) then please sit down for a minute and have a rethink: are you really doing your bit or playing your part, or are you just a “hobbyist” as the late Dr. William Pierce called those people who wanted to be part of something, and even in some cases claimed they would “die for it”, but were not prepared to pay for it!

Beating the bans! Isabel Peralta social media update

On Good Friday (29th March) Isabel Peralta was banned from YouTube and Twitter, without explanation, but she now has a new Twitter account @EvropaInvicta1

English-subtitled versions of many of Isabel’s banned videos are available on the H&D channel at Odysee

The latest video is from a recent visit to Athens, where Isabel found a stark contrast between the archetypal Greece – birthplace of Western civilisation – and the Greece of today, a territory completely stripped of its national, cultural, racial identity. In this video (in Spanish with English subtitles) Isabel visits both the glories of the Parthenon and the sadly contrasting disgrace of multiracial central Athens.

Click here for a regularly updated list of Isabel’s social media accounts

An English-subtitled version of Isabel’s new video, in which she discusses the basis and implications of Spanish nationality law, is also now online.

As Isabel points out, Spanish nationality law is rooted in the victor’s ‘justice’ of 1945, which led to the abandonment of concepts of nationality based on blood – the traditional jus sanguinis.

Readers might be surprised to discover that Spanish nationality law is today actively biased against fellow Europeans, and in favour of so-called “Ibero-Americans” (i.e. those whom Americans term “Hispanics”), even if the latter have no Spanish blood.

Another facet of the “great replacement” of Europeans!

But we should not despair. The European resistance is growing – and the courage, intelligence and loyalty of our European correspondent Isabel Peralta is a beacon of hope for our movement.

Isabel’s latest article for H&D appears in the recently published Issue 118, click here for details. A new article about the fundamental nationalist question of ‘Blood & Soil’, and the implications of the present European agricultural crisis, will be in Issue 119.

New Isabel Peralta Twitter and YouTube accounts after Instagram ban

The YouTube and Instagram accounts of our European correspondent Isabel Peralta were banned this week in the latest acts of online censorship against the true European resistance.

In response to this attempted censorship, Isabel has returned to Twitter with a new account.

A new YouTube account has already been created and archival material will be uploaded soon, both on this new channel and at Odysee.

Isabel has also created a second Telegram channel, both as a back-up and (for now) as a channel for discussion.

Further updates will be posted soon, both here and at a new website which maintains up to date links to all Isabel’s social media accounts.

H&D social media accounts updated

While H&D has always been (and will remain) primarily a printed magazine, we are presently updating our social media presence.

Editor Mark Cotterill has a Twitter account @HandD_Magazine – and assistant editor and webmaster Peter Rushton has a Twitter account @HistoryWarUK

(Peter has been away from social media during the summer but returns this week.)

The H&D Instagram account is also now back online here.

And of course our editor is still on Facebook here.

Our European correspondent Isabel Peralta has also updated her own social media pages (including new Instagram and Telegram accounts) and is beginning a Podcast. Regularly updated details of Isabel’s social media accounts will be maintained at this new website.

H&D’s Peter Rushton interviewed on RBN

Heritage and Destiny’s Peter Rushton

Yesterday H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton was interviewed by our old friend Don Wassall and his co-presenter Patricia Aiken on their Freedom Times News Hour.

Don’s connections with H&D go right back to the founding of the magazine in 1999, when he was guest speaker alongside the late Dr William Pierce at a meeting organised in Arlington, Virginia, by our editor and publisher Mark Cotterill.

Yesterday’s interview covered a wide range of topics, with the discussion mainly focused on introducing American listeners to developments in British and European nationalism, including the current election campaigns by nationalists such as Julian Leppert and Dr Jim Lewthwaite of the British Democrats; the recruitment of high-quality young campaigners by broader, non-electoral campaign groups such as Patriotic Alternative and the Traditional Britain Group; and the extraordinary repressive measures imposed by the political establishment across Europe, including the recent conviction of podcaster ‘Sven Longshanks’ (James Allchurch) and the jailing of French revisionist scholar Vincent Reynouard.

The Freedom Times (like H&D) is one of the few high quality print publications regularly produced by and for racial nationalists in the Anglosphere.

The limits of ‘free speech’ – PA purged from Twitter (again)

Mark Collett and Laura Towler of Patriotic Alternative – now banned (again) from Twitter

Many nationalists (including H&D) hoped that Elon Musk was being sincere when he promised that his takeover of Twitter would lead to a new approach in favour of ‘free debate’.

Unfortunately, recent decisions show that (after a brief experiment) it’s back to business as usual.

Last night several accounts associated with Patriotic Alternative – including the main PA account as well as Mark Collett, Laura Towler, Sam Melia, and Merseyside activist James Costello – were simultaneously banned for “hateful conduct”.

The banning was in response to a barrage of complaints to Twitter including this one from ‘anti-racist’ activist Sunder Katwala

No one has yet quoted exactly what was posted to Twitter by PA that constituted “hateful conduct”. It seems likely that Twitter has simply panicked in response to a bullying campaign by the far left and the usual interest groups, whose policy on these matters dates back to their successful pressure on the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror during the 1930s to abandon their support for Mosley’s British Union of Fascists.

This pressure was primarily via an advertising boycott, notably by large Jewish businesses such as the Lyons Corner Houses, a very well-known chain of tea shops owned by Isidore Salmon.

How should nationalists respond to the latest Twitter bans?

Elon Musk (above centre) with Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner at a 2022 World Cup match in Qatar.

First of all, as in the case of Donald Trump, the message should be: “put not your trust in tycoons”. Billionaires (almost by definition) are not going to be on the side of racial nationalism, even though they might sometimes strike poses that give that impression.

Second, avoid defeatism. There is no “all powerful conspiracy” operating against us. Instead there are many attempts to conspire against us, some more successful than others and some contradicting each other, but all of them ultimately doomed to failure because we stand for truth and civilization.

The British people and other White European peoples are waking up to the need to defend their race and culture. No ban or boycott is going to change that fact. H&D looks forward to Patriotic Alternative continuing to make gigantic contributions to the White European renaissance.

[video update] Great success for H&D’s Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan & John Tyndall Memorial Meeting

Over seventy nationalists from different parties and groups attended the Heritage and Destiny 2022 Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan & John Tyndall Memorial Meeting, held in Preston, Lancashire on Sunday 25th September 2022. Video is now online at H&D‘s new Odysee channel.

Meeting Chairman was Keith Axon: a former NF & BNP organiser, and longstanding friend of both John Tyndall and Richard Edmonds.

For the first time we had two women speakers and would have had three had Julie Lake not been prevented from attending due to a family bereavement. This was one of many aspects of this year’s meeting that both on the panel and in the audience showed the increasing diversity of European nationalism.

Speakers at this year’s highly successful H&D meeting included (above left to right): Dr Jim Lewthwaite, chairman of the British Democrats; Keith Axon, meeting chairman; Peter Rushton (H&D assistant editor); Isabel Peralta (H&D European correspondent); and Laura Towler, deputy leader of Patriotic Alternative.

For the fourth time we also had an international guest whom we kept secret until the last moment. H&D‘s European correspondent Isabel Peralta overcame a six-hour detention by UK Border Force and (after having only 90 minutes sleep!) was able to attend and speak in England for the first time.

Our Spanish guest was delighted to meet so many excellent new comrades especially her fellow speaker Laura Towler, deputy leader of Patriotic Alternative. Isabel and Laura are an inspiration to a new generation of intelligent young women across Europe who know that women have an even greater stake than men in rescuing European civilization.

Laura and her husband Sam Melia brought the youngest ever attendee to an H&D event, their baby Catherine whom we can already see is a remarkably attentive and disciplined comrade! While Catherine was our youngest audience member, our oldest included subscribers from Salford (former BNP activists) and Warwickshire (a former NSM activist).

Our audience and speaker panel included a former Member of the European Parliament, an elected borough councillor, and four former borough councillors.

Former Blackburn & Darwen councillors Michael Johnson and Mark Cotterill with their election agent Peter Rushton!

Benny Bullman launched the meeting with a fine tribute to the founder of Blood & Honour, Ian Stuart, who was born 65 years ago in the Lancashire town of Poulton-le-Fylde. Benny’s organisation Rock Against Communism had just a few days ago held a commemoration for the 29th anniversary of Ian’s death. Benny emphasised that great comrades such as Ian Stuart still live with us in spirit and we are all determined to be worthy of their legacy.

Laura Towler then explained the cultural mission of Patriotic Alternative, which for the past three years has been fighting to get across the message that White Lives Matter – across a broad front of activities from demonstrations to leafletting, mountain hikes to tea retailing! PA has grown rapidly in its three years of existence, despite the handicaps of pandemic conditions, and has combined some of the best veterans of older nationalist parties with a proven ability to attract the best of the younger online nationalist community.

After our lunch interval, a brief unscheduled speech was given by Mike Whitby of British Voice, advertising a forthcoming demonstration regarding the still unsolved murder of Blackpool schoolgirl Charlene Downes. (This demo went ahead with speeches including this pertinent observation by Alek Yerbury from Yorkshire PA.)

Isabel Peralta (speaking in Spanish with an English translation being read by Peter Rushton) explained that our faith in the true European cause was capable of moving mountains: the united force of national socialists across the world will rescue Europe from its kidnappers. We close our ranks with the spirit of those who preceded us: we have truth on our side. National socialism is not a utopia or a historical curiosity, but a vital living idea. Our activists will not be swayed by careerist considerations or media hostility.

Isabel Peralta, national socialist activist who flew in from Madrid for the meeting, spoke in Spanish with an English translation read by Peter Rushton

Dr Jim Lewthwaite, archaeologist and former Bradford city councillor, now chairman of the British Democrats, hailed the breakdown of the multiracial, multicultural society. Based partly on his father’s experiences in the British Raj as well as recent events in Leicester, Jim argued that the non-White takeover of many towns and cities was now leading to intense conflict between rival non-White factions. The British Democrats are now beginning to attract significant numbers of experienced activists as well as those new to electoral politics, and within the past year have achieved some strong results at the ballot box.

Dr Jim Lewthwaite, chairman of the British Democrats

Professor John Kersey, educationalist and musician, who leads several international university-level institutions dedicated to bespoke professional education for high achievers, gave a cogent analysis of the burgeoning threats to traditional British values and freedoms – and to the Christian values that are the bedrock of British and European civilization. The dictatorial grip of the political establishment is at last being resisted: the forces of resistance are no longer marginalised – our agenda of maintaining and restoring British traditions is now at the centre of political debate.

Professor John Kersey, educationalist and musician

Stephen Frost – National Secretary of the British Movement, longstanding friend of Colin Jordan and author of the Colin Jordan biography ‘TWAS A GOOD FIGHT’!, acknowledged that our movement of resistance to multicultural decay is a ‘broad church’ of patriots, not all of whom by any means are national socialists (as represented by BM and Colin Jordan’s earlier organisations). Yet as he emphasised, BM has always been prepared to lend its support to sincere comrades from other groups and parties – in the spirit of Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan and John Tyndall. CJ and JT had famously fallen out, but only for a very short time in the mid-1960s, and while operating in different movements and styles they shared a core ideological commitment. Our task is to spread propaganda for our cause by any and every means and format: the propaganda war is bringing increasing numbers to realisation of the essential truth of our values.

Stephen Frost, national secretary of British Movement

Peter RushtonAssistant Editor of Heritage and Destiny magazine, historian, author of the new Real History Blog, and TV commentator, pointed out that our previous Preston gathering had been in 2017 which was the year that the word ‘woke’ entered the Oxford English Dictionary. Wokeness means the opposite of ‘awake’ – it means passive acceptance of the surrender of our civilisation. More than a century ago the early Labour movement’s anthem was not the Red Flag but England Arise – which included lines that would today be supported more by adherents of our cause than by 21st century leftists.

Peter Rushton, Assistant Editor of Heritage and Destiny

Peter also examined the development of the UK’s oppressive race laws, which have now been extended to use of the misnamed Terrorism Act for the purpose of political harassment. The previous evening our Spanish guest Isabel Peralta had been detained for hours at Manchester Airport under the Terrorism Act, which meant that she and Peter had less than 90 minutes sleep before heading to the meeting!

Our audience included a former MEP, a serving councillor, ex-councillors and officials from several different nationalist parties.

A separate article later this week will discuss this outrageous abuse of the Terrorism Act.

In addition to the speakers there was an auction and raffle of items donated by H&D‘s friends around the world.

In his speech of thanks to these donors and to our speakers, H&D editor Mark Cotterill said that having now published 110 issues of our magazine, we are determined to carry on as one of the very few hard-copy nationalist publications still in existence. We believe that even in the world of Facebook and YouTube there is an important role for hard-copy publications but of course we depend on subscribers and donors to make our publication possible.

Special thanks to the British Movement Women’s Division who provided an excellent buffet; and to the British Movement Leader Guard who carried out security duties in their usual highly efficient manner to ensure that our speakers and audience were entirely safe from the ‘antifa’ violence that sometime targets nationalist events.

Before the meeting and during the intervals, our audience browsed stalls from several different nationalist groups and journals.

Colin Jordan (1923-2009)
John Tyndall (1934-2005)

“Terrorist” travesty – police act as political puppets in harassment of H&D’s Isabel Peralta

Our guest speaker at the recent Preston meeting – Spanish nationalist activist Isabel Peralta – was detained at Manchester Airport for more than six hours (under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act) after flying from Madrid the night before the event.

Isabel and H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton therefore had only 90 minutes sleep before the meeting!

Despite never having been convicted of any offence, Isabel was further harassed by the authorities, who retained her phone and computer for five days. And the extraordinary fortnight of persecution continued when German authorities issued an exclusion order banning Isabel from Germany for 20 years! This is again despite her never having been convicted of any criminal offence. In fact Isabel herself has brought a court action in Madrid against the Jerusalem Post and Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Despite her 6-hour detention and interrogation – and after only 90 minutes sleep – Isabel Peralta and H&D Assistant Editor Peter Rushton were very happy to arrive at the H&D meeting in Preston, joining fellow speakers including (above left to right) Dr Jim Lewthwaite, Keith Axon and Laura Towler.

In the attached video, we examine the political persecution of Isabel Peralta and the discrediting of Europe’s anti-terrorist laws, which are used as excuses for political harassment and “fishing expeditions” for political intelligence, wholly unrelated to any genuine anti-terrorist concerns.

H&D author banned by Twitter: Elon Musk’s new ‘freedom’ policy fails first test (video update)

H&D writer Isabel Peralta – banned by Twitter

The May issue of H&D featured the first English-translated article by Isabel Peralta – brightest star of a new generation of European nationalists. Isabel has previously been banned from Twitter, but in a test of the new ‘freedom of expression’ policy outlined after the takeover by Elon Musk, on May 2nd she launched a new account at https://twitter.com/isabel_mperalta

Soon after midnight on 18th June, this account was banned, despite Elon Musk’s repeated ‘freedom’ pledge. It seems that violent anti-fascists are welcome on Twitter, but even under the new regime Isabel Peralta is not. Elon Musk seems to be just another hypocrite in thrall to ‘woke’ definitions of political acceptability.

Shortly before her banning, a Twitter post from Isabel about ‘discrimination’ went viral and was widely reported in the Spanish mainstream press.

Now denied access to Twitter, Isabel has made the video below (with English subtitles added by H&D) to explain the background to last week’s controversy.

For those new to Isabel’s work, above is a new English-subtitled version of the introductory video on her YouTube channel. (I had edited out the now-defunct Instagram and Twitter links and inserted the new Twitter account, but of course this is also now inoperative.)

Also now available for the first time with English subtitles is Isabel’s discussion of proposals for a ‘historical memory law’ in Spain. See video below.

She discusses the Spanish state’s threat to exhume José Antonio Prime de Rivera – founder of the Falange, murdered by communists in November 1936 – from his tomb at the Valle de los Caidos (‘Valley of the Fallen’) outside Madrid, and explains the history of José Antonio and the Falange.

The grotesque politically motivated ‘democratic memory’ law that proposes to criminalise alternative views of Spanish history remains on the Spanish left-wing government’s agenda, although (at least temporarily) they have had to withdraw the threat to desecrate José Antonio’s grave.

H&D will continue to report on the battle for historical truth – see our assistant editor’s new Real History blog.

Please note that Isabel Peralta presently has only two official accounts/channels: one on Twitter and one on YouTube. She has no connection with other accounts using her name. If she does open any new accounts, we will update this page accordingly.

Isabel’s work will continue to appear in translation at H&D, and we shall report here on her battle to be allowed to speak the truth online.
