YouTube bans David Duke and Jared Taylor

The online video platform YouTube yesterday banned several high profile pro-White and racial realist channels, including those run by former Louisiana state representative Dr David Duke, Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance, and prominent ‘Alt Right’ personality Richard Spencer.

This is the latest stage in an ongoing war against pro-White voices online. As regular readers will know, Heritage and Destiny was banned from YouTube just over a year ago, and from PayPal around four years ago.

We have to be realistic. Outside certain specific legal circumstances (such as making meeting-rooms and leaflet delivery available for election candidates), no one is under any obligation to provide us with a platform. Still less are they under any ‘free speech’ obligation when providing a free service such as YouTube or Facebook.

Sadly pro-White organisations and individuals will face continuing struggles online, having to move to platforms that refuse to censor us. This will risk ghettoising ourselves, since by comparison to YouTube, Facebook, etc. these platforms will tend to be populated mainly by folk who are already sympathetic to our movement.

The lesson is twofold.

(1) There is still an important role for hardcopy publications despite the proliferation of online access. If you subscribe to Heritage and Destiny, we can guarantee that you will receive your six issues each year – whereas if you subscribe to a YouTube channel it might disappear tomorrow.

(2) Pro-White activists must seek opportunities to engage with a wider public, whether online or in the ‘real’ world. When Covid-19 restrictions are relaxed, there will be no substitute for face to face engagement, both with existing movement sympathisers at conferences, rallies and the like; and with the general public via the electoral process and other public activity.

Fredrick Töben (1944-2020)

Dr Fredrick Töben (above, second left) at the Newmarket Hotel, Port Adelaide, South Australia with (left to right) the late Jock Spooner (H&D patron); a visiting Cuban friend; Peter Hartung (Töben’s Adelaide Institute colleague); and Dave Astin.

H&D greatly regret to report the death of Dr Fredrick Töben, the German-Australian revisionist historian. Dr Töben died yesterday three weeks after his 76th birthday, having been seriously ill for the past two or three months.

Fredrick Töben came to Australia from his German birthplace as a ten-year-old boy when his parents emigrated. He studied at Victoria College of Wellington, New Zealand; Melbourne University; and Stuttgart University.

In the late 1970s Töben lived in Rhodesia towards the end of that country’s struggle against Black Marxist revolutionaries. After a year teaching in Nigeria, he returned to Australia teaching at various institutions in the state of Victoria during the early 1980s.

Töben’s dismissal from his teaching post in 1985 led to a five-year legal battle. He eventually won damages against the State of Victoria and relocated to Adelaide, South Australia, where he formed the Truth Mission in 1994, becoming Adelaide Institute a year later.

This produced a series of ‘Holocaust’ revisionist publications, and led to Töben being targeted by Jewish and ‘anti-fascist’ organisations worldwide, while he became part of an international network of revisionists attending conferences sponsored by the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), and later The Barnes Review, serving on the latter’s Board of Contributing Editors until his death.

In 1998 he was arrested in Germany under that country’s notorious laws restricting free research and discussion of historical topics, spending seven months in prison.

In October 2000 the Australian Human Rights Commission ordered Töben to remove parts of the Adelaide Institute’s website, triggering years of appeals and efforts to enforce the judgment.

Eventually in 2009 Töben was jailed for three months in Adelaide for contempt of court.

Three years earlier Töben had travelled to Iran to speak at the Tehran International Conference to Review the Global Vision of the Holocaust, promoted by then Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. This event attracted worldwide publicity and intensified the targeting of Töben and other participants.

In October 2008 while in transit at London’s Heathrow Airport, Töben was seized from his plane and served with an international arrest warrant issued at the request of German authorities who wanted to jail him again for articles published on the Adelaide Institute website.

This was expected to be a rapid ‘rubber-stamping’ procedure, but soon after Töben was taken into custody, Dr David Duke telephoned Lady Michèle Renouf in London to alert her to the arrest. Lady Renouf mobilised a specialist legal team of solicitor Kevin Lowry-Mullins and barrister Ben Watson, resulting in a historic legal victory against the Federal Republic and their Crown Prosecution Service allies.

After a month in Wandsworth prison awaiting the London court’s decision, Töben was freed and returned to Australia.

Persecution by the usual suspects continued, and a legal action for court costs (related to a series of Australian cases) resulted in Töben being declared bankrupt and having his passport confiscated in 2012.

While there was a short period in 2018-2019 when there were serious disagreements between Dr Töben and H&D, these differences were resolved long before his death. We salute Dr Fredrick Töben’s memory as a valiant fighter for historical truth and justice.

Many happy returns – John Bean

Bill Baillie on the left (his position in the photo not his politics!); the late Paul Barnes (centre), who shared John’s views on racial-nationalism and John Bean (definitely on the right!). When John informed H&D editor Mark Cotterill that he and Bill only shared around 50% of the views expressed in the magazine, Mark replied that was very good, and slightly more than he did! Mark explained that unlike a party-political magazine, H&D is here to represent a very broad cross section of nationalist opinion, not all of which everybody will agree with.

The editor, assistant editor and all the staff at H&D Towers, would like to wish our oldest subscriber (by two months) – John Bean – a very happy 93rd birthday.

John was born on June 27th, 1927 in Carshalton, Surrey. The family moved to Blackfen, near Sidcup in Kent, where at the age of 13 he suffered the trauma of being bombed out of the family home in February 1941.

Aged 18, John began his National Service in 1945. He was largely apolitical, although he had briefly flirted with communism whilst at school, calling for support for the Soviet Union. Initially he was a trainee navigator in the RAF Volunteer Reserve.

Later as a sailor in the Royal Navy. John became a radar mechanic and was placed on HMS Bulawayo, a fleet supply ship which made several visits to Trinidad until the end of his naval service in June 1948.

He briefly lived in India during 1950, working as a chemist in a paint factory, although he failed to settle and returned to Britain six months later.

Upon his return, John began to attend meetings of the Union Movement, being attracted by the ‘Europe a Nation’ policy and by the time Oswald Mosley had spent in prison for his beliefs. John initially served as a member of the Special Propaganda Service, the main duty of which was to sell copies of the party’s newspaper Union.

Soon however he became a leading figure active on behalf of the UM in the East End of London, before being appointed to head a branch in Putney in 1952. Despite these advancements, John grew disillusioned of the UM’s chances of making any real headway and he left them altogether in February 1953. A brief stopover in the local Conservative Party in Barnes followed but lasted only two months.

After a spell on the side-lines he then linked up with Andrew Fountaine, who had been attempting to form his own party, the National Front, and began to produce a journal, National Unity.

His work attracted the attention of A.K. Chesterton and, with the National Front idea failing to get off the ground, he decided to join the League of Empire Loyalists, serving as its Northern Organiser and then in the HQ in London. Continuing to produce his paper, now called The Loyalist, John soon became frustrated at both the lack of political activity and the links to the Conservative Party that were the hallmarks of the LEL.

He left in 1957 to set up the National Labour Party with Fountaine. Fountaine, a Norfolk landowner from a rural landowning family, was officially President of the new group, but was largely a figurehead: control actually lay with John.

The NLP gained a few minor results in elections but was always destined to be a small fringe movement, and as a result John decided to merge his party with another LEL splinter group, the White Defence League in 1960 to form the British National Party.

John Bean was made leader of the party upon its foundation. Early in the group’s life, both John and former White Defence League leader Colin Jordan were approached by Oswald Mosley, who offered them roles in his Union Movement if they agreed to its subsuming the BNP, but both men rejected the offer.

Initially gaining some support in London, the party soon ran into trouble when it became clear that Colin Jordan was emerging as its spokesman. A journalist commented in 1962 that Jordan was becoming the British Adolf Hitler. John jokingly responded to the Daily Mail reporter that that made him “the British Joseph Goebbels”. Despite this, John soon clashed with Jordan over his extremism and before long Jordan had left to form the National Socialist Movement, taking emerging figures John Tyndall and Denis Pirie with him. Matters had come to a head at the party’s national council meeting in 1962 when John proposed a motion to condemn Jordan’s open support for National Socialism. It was passed 7 to 5, but the party immediately split as a result, albeit with around 80% of the membership remaining within the BNP. John had blamed the associations with National Socialism that Jordan and Tyndall brought for the party’s marginal position in British politics.

At the 1964 general election John Bean stood as BNP candidate in Southall and obtained 3,410 votes (9.3%), the highest post-war vote for a minority party at that time. Another BNP candidate picked up nearly 2,000 votes in Deptford. In 1966 he again stood in Southall, but his vote fell to 2,600. With BNP membership only marginally increasing, John felt the need to try to create a nationalist front with like groups and arranged, with the help of Ted Budden, a private meeting with his old mentor A.K. Chesterton and a spokesman of the Racial Preservation Society. The result of the meeting was the founding of the National Front in 1967.

John became something of a peripheral figure in the NF, as the BNP element was somewhat side-lined. He held the post of Deputy Chairman of the Executive Directorate, a body which was largely subordinate to the Policy Directorate and stood as second candidate for the Ealing constituency in the 1967 Greater London Council elections until resigning in 1968. Still an NF member, he was recalled to positions of minor influence from time to time until 1972 when he largely ceased active involvement. Retreating into political retirement, his membership lapsed in 1977

He emerged only briefly to lend some support to his old friend Andrew Fountaine’s NF Constitutional Movement and to take part in the Countryside Alliance March of 1st March 1998 – which was also attended by supporters of Nick Griffin, by then inside the BNP.

John eventually ended his retirement after the political fall of John Tyndall and joined the British National Party under the leadership of Nick Griffin. He became an active official of the BNP (mostly in administration) and was a candidate for the party in the 2004 European elections, where he was seventh on a list of seven candidates for the Scotland constituency.

He formerly ran his own website, but then wrote a regular column for the main BNP website, and served as editor of BNP magazine Identity until March 2010.

Due to dissatisfaction with his leadership, John demanded that Nick Griffin resign as National Chairman and focus more on representing the North West region as an MEP.

In May 2011, John endorsed Andrew Brons (the BNP MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber) in his challenge for the BNP leadership. He made significant contributions to the Brons team web site, including articles on ‘Genetics and Inheritance’ and ‘Nationalism and a European Confederation’. He subsequently became involved in Brons’s party the British Democratic Party, established in February 2013.

John lived in London, and later Suffolk, before retiring to Yorkshire to live nearer his expanding family – three grandchildren, and five great grandchildren (so far!).

During periods away from politics John wrote four books.

Ten Miles from Anywhere (Hedgerow Publishing 1995), looked at the changes in a Suffolk village from the beginning of the 20th century.

Many Shades of Black, (New Millennium 1999), was Bean’s political memoirs up to that date.

His first novel Blood in the Square, which fictionalized some of his political experiences in the 1960s.

And in August 2016 his historical novel Trail of the Viking Finger (Troubador Publications).

Yes, White Live DO Matter – as ALL lives should matter

‘I’d like to apologise… to absolutely f*****g NOBODY’: So, says Burnley fan Jake Hepple, via Facebook, who rightly refused to repent for the ‘White Lives Matter’ banner.

The Burnley fan from Colne in East Lancashire defended his move to help arrange for a ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’ banner to be flown above the Etihad Stadium, Manchester just before his sides 5-0 demolition by Premier League champions Manchester City on Monday evening.

Shortly after kick-off at Monday’s game, a plane was spotted flying high above the Etihad stadium displaying the ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’ (note – not Burnley FC) banner displaying the slogan and came shortly after all twenty two players, club staff and match officials had kneeled (the so called ‘taking the knee’, copied from the ‘bending the knee’ scene on Game of Thrones – an American fantasy drama television series, which is still shown on British TV) prior to the game in solidarity with the black career criminal George Floyd and the so-called ‘Black Lives Matter’ mob.

Burnley fan Jake Hepple has reportedly claimed responsibility for the display, which came as an apparent riposte to the spate of displays of support for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ mob which have become commonplace in the English game since the restart of the Premier League last week and prompted the Lancashire club, as well as captain Ben Mee, to strongly condemn ‘White Lives Matter’.

Hepple, though, remained unrepentant. Borrowing a slightly altered phrase from Irish UFC superstar Conor McGregor, made after a fight in New York City, Hepple wrote on his since-deleted Facebook page that “I’d like to take this time to apologise .. TO ABSOLUTELY F*****G NOBODY!”

“It’s now apparently racist to say White lives matter,” he continued on his Facebook account (which has now not surprisingly been deleted), which also displayed a photograph of Hepple alongside former BNP member, and English Defence League founder Stephen Yaxley-Lennon (AKA ‘Tommy Robinson’).

Burnley FC fired off a statement condemning the banner in mega quick time. In fact, so quick that it appeared online even before the first half of the match had finished!

Burnley FC Chairman Mike Garlick and his CEO and general dogsbody Neil Hart of course fiercely condemned Hepple’s actions in their grovelling statement, which read:

“Burnley Football Club strongly condemns the actions of those responsible for the aircraft and offensive banner that flew over The Etihad Stadium on Monday evening.

“We wish to make it clear that those responsible are not welcome at Turf Moor.

“This, in no way, represents what Burnley Football Club stands for and we will work fully with the authorities to identify those responsible and issue lifetime bans.

“The club has a proud record of working with all genders, religions and faiths through its award-winning Community scheme, and stands against racism of any kind.

“We are fully behind the Premier League’s Black Lives Matter initiative and, in line with all other Premier League games undertaken since Project Restart, our players and football staff willingly took the knee at kick-off at Manchester City.

“We apologise unreservedly to the Premier League, to Manchester City and to all those helping to promote Black Lives Matter.”

Burnley staff and players “taking the knee” before Monday’s game in Manchester

Of course, Garlick and Hart not being amongst the ‘sharpest tools in the shed’ raced their statement out before even checking, or even understanding the facts behind the banner!

The banner read ‘Burnley’ and not ‘Burnley FC’ and was in no way linked to the club. It was paid for by supporters – mostly ex-supporters now – of the Burnley Suicide Squad (BSS), who were a notorious football firm in the 1980s, right up to the mid-2000s, but are mainly ‘retired’ now. In general, the BSS were made up of patriotic English nationalists, who were not in any way linked to the BNP (as some in the media claim).

To quote former BSS leader Andrew Porter; “I’m a proud to be a hooligan. A lot of people out there think we are scum. Well I don’t give a f**k about their point of view. After the Burnley riots I was classed as a nazi who voted BNP. I’ve never voted in my life and I wouldn’t vote for the BNP because I’m English. It’s about time we had an English National Party; the Welsh and Scots have their own national parties so why should we be any different. Is it wrong to display our national flag? Some people in our government think it is. They don’t want us to have an identity. Well, I’ve got a message for them: you’ll never take England out of the English, and you’ll never take the hooligan out of me.”

Garlic and Hart rattle on about those responsible for the banner not being welcome at Turf Moor (Burnley FC’s stadium) anymore and when they find them, they will all get life bans! You could not really make it up, could you? Don’t these idiots realise that the vast majority of the BSS are already banned – mostly for life – from Turf Moor! And those who are not, would never even consider paying the rip off prices that BFC (and all Premier League clubs) charge to enter Turf Moor – with CCTV cameras pointing everywhere – watching a group over vastly over-paid, over-rated, spoiled brats, commonly known as Premier League footballers.

Garlic and Hart then go on about their club having a proud record of working with all genders, religions and faiths through its award-winning Community scheme, and stands against racism of any kind.

Well if that’s the case, why are there so few black players in the Burnley FC team? Let alone the first team squad (three at the most). And why does their club not have any Asian players, or any Muslim players (when the town of Burnley is at least 12% Asian/Muslim)? And why does Burnley FC not have one single Gay player? What sort of ‘proud record’ is this? They must live in some sort of fantasy land!

The statement goes on about how much Burnley FC are behind the violent mob ‘Black Lives Matter’, and how all their team willingly took the knee – Game of Thones style!

One thing the statement did get right about the banner was that it – “in no way represents what Burnley Football Club stands for” – very true. The banner represented the real silent majority of White working-class people in Burnley, who in general have little or no time for Burnley FC, as is reflected in their pathetically low attendance figures (they can’t even fill their tiny ground for most matches!).

Why would ordinary White working-class Burnley people want to have anything to do with the likes of Garlic and Hart, as they may as well be from a different planet. They know nothing and care nothing for the ordinary people of Burnley, apart from wanting to fleece their hard-earned money off them, to pay the inflated wage packets of the likes of Ben Mee.

Ben Mee, himself an embarrassment to most Burnley fans, has played for the club since 2012. After being rejected by Man City – he was there for four years without ever making the Premier League first team – he was loaned out to Leicester City, where he struggled only making 15 appearances in 2011, before being loaned out to Burnley.

Ben Mee cries all the way to the bank after another Burnley defeat

Mee who is now team Captain, could not wait to jump on the politically correct bandwagon and spoke to Sky Sports News directly after the game, whining about his and the club’s ‘shame’ at the banner incident following his teams capitulation to a far superior – and much more enriched! – Man City side.

“We as a group of (White) players condemn it, we’re ashamed, we’re embarrassed. It definitely had a massive impact on us to see that in the sky. We were embarrassed, disappointed, upset. We are embarrassed that our name was in it.

“That they tried to attach it to our club – it doesn’t belong anywhere near our club. Fans like that don’t deserve to be around football.”

Of course, it’s very easy for somebody from a privileged middle-class background like Mee to attack ordinary White working-class Burnley fans. Remember Mee earns more in just one week, than most Burnley FC fans earn in a whole year. In reality its people like Mee that don’t deserve to be around football. And when the peoples of Britain finally awake from their slumber and elect a nationalist government, then he and his ilk will be dealt with.

After the incident Lancashire Police stated that they were investigating the matter to determine if any laws were broken! But later the next day – after spending many hours consulting with their legal team and the CPS – they had to admit that no laws had been broken, and no action against the banner organisers would be taken.

Remember that this is the same Lancashire Police service who claimed for years that they did not have the time or resources to investigate the ‘grooming’ scandals (mainly involving Pakistani men) that have plagued many towns in the county for over 20 years now.

The ‘grooming’ of young White working class and sub-working class girls from towns – including Burnley – have largely been ignored by the politically correct Lancashire Police, who would rather turn a blind eye to these White girls being raped, trafficked and even murdered (as happened in Blackpool) than be accused of being “racist”!

The Grooming which is (mainly – but not exclusively) carried out by second and third generation Pakistani Sunni Muslims, has now reached what was the far north west of Lancashire – Barrow in Furness (moved over to Cumbria in 1974).

In Barrow, a town which was until very recently almost all White, is now enjoying all the benefits of enrichment, with Asian ‘grooming’ gangs operating in the town with almost immunity from prosecution.

In a video statement, Chief Supt Dean Holden said he had to be “very careful … because I don’t want to undermine any judicial processes” but “what I would say is when the question is asked, ‘Is there an organised gang of Asian men in Barrow conducting abuse and exploitation against individuals?’ – our investigation has shown that has not been corroborated or otherwise evidenced.”

In addition, the force said it was investigating a new allegation that “circulated on social media concerning reports of physical and sexual abuse committed against a woman, aged in her late teens” in Barrow.

In fact, Cumbria Police, not only refused to close down arrest these ‘grooming’ gangs, but instead arrested and charged one of their victims!

A 19-year-old White girl has been charged with perverting the course of justice after telling police she was drugged and raped by an Asian sex gang in Cumbria. The teenager from Barrow was held in custody awaiting a court hearing, having allegedly breached her bail conditions! Cumbria Police confirmed it was investigating an incident of physical and sexual abuse that was reported by a woman in her late teens. The girl later alleged on Facebook that she had been beaten, burned, drugged and trafficked for sex throughout the north of England by Pakistani men. Her post included very distressing pictures of bruises, scratches and burn marks, and sparked a social media storm.

But to Burnley FC including their captain Ben Mee, their Chairman Mike Garlic, and their CEO Neil Hart, the lives of young working-class White girls really DON’T MATTER. They just don’t care about working class people, but then again with their money why should they?

Congratulations to Jake Hepple and all the lads from Burnley Suicide Squad, the banner stunt was great, it got the message over in a completely non-violent way – unlike the “Black Lives Matter” mob whose violent demonstrations, vandalism, lootings and stabbings have shown many ‘on the fence’ Brits what their real agenda is – the complete eradication of our history, heritage, culture and even identity.

Burnley’s Steve Smith (above left) addressing an H&D event

End note. Readers should remember that it was not that ago that the BNP, once led by the legendary Steve Smith, were the second largest party in Burnley, and were polling up to 35% of the vote in local elections – 40% in Padiham (where the BNP had all three Borough councillors plus the County Councillor). The England First Party, also once led by Steve Smith, polled well in most of the Burnley wards they contested too. That support is still out there. It just needs a well organised, nationalist party to get back to basics and take advantage of it.

Jake Hepple’s girlfriend Megan Rambadt – sacked for her political views

UPDATE: Jake Hepple’s girlfriend Megan Rambadt has been sacked from her job due to alleged ‘racist’ social media posts, though there is no suggestion that her political views had ever had any negative influence on her work.

UKIP’s new Bombay-born leader

Freddy Vachha, the new leader of UKIP

A British political party now has an ethnic minority leader – but it’s not the party you might expect.

The United Kingdom Independence Party was (under Nigel Farage’s leadership) the winner of the 2014 European Parliamentary elections in the UK, polling 4.4 million votes and electing 24 MEPs. This success and continuing pressure on David Cameron’s Conservative Party was the biggest reason why Cameron agreed to hold a referendum on Britain’s EU membership in 2016.

So UKIP was to a very large extent responsible for Brexit.

However post-Brexit the party has lurched from one disaster to another, losing most of its elected representatives, activists and voters to Farage’s Brexit Party, which in turn collapsed at last December’s general election.

After a succession of comically inept leaders, it’s slightly surprising that UKIP still (just about) exists. Today it announced yet another new leader, London regional chairman Freddy Vachha.

The leadership had been vacant since the resignation of Dr Richard Braine last October. Discounting interim/caretaker leaders, Mr Vachha is the sixth UKIP leader since Farage stepped down following the Brexit referendum victory less than four years ago.

Freddy Vachha addressing the media today

Freddy Vachha was born in December 1957 in Bombay (now known as Mumbai), India, son of a Parsi father and a British mother.

An accountant and tax consultant, Mr Vachha was runner-up in last year’s UKIP leadership election. His first press conference as leader was held today at the foot of Winston Churchill’s statue in London.

We might glean some idea of the professionalism we can expect from UKIP by glancing at Mr Vaccha’s CV which he presented during last year’s leadership election (click below).

This crank organisation once managed to win a nationwide UK election and changed the course of British politics: perhaps that tells us something about the essential fragility of the party system and is a sign of hope for our movement!

Not much to celebrate: Macron in London for De Gaulle anniversary as French local elections approach

While many Britons still in the grip of the Covid-19 crisis tend to think France has by comparison done quite well, the French themselves increasingly despair of President Emmanuel Macron.

This neo-Blairite ‘centrist’ poseur was once a media favourite, but as with his Canadian equivalent Justin Trudeau, even the docile press have started to perceive his essential shallowness. Fine words about national unity sound increasingly fatuous when, as in the last few days, a city such as Dijon is gripped by race war between Chechen and Algerian gangs.

Gen. Charles de Gaulle (far right) in 1941 with (left to right) Polish exile Prime Minister Władysław Sikorski; Canadian Corps commander Gen. Andrew McNaughton; and Winston Churchill – who was later alleged to have ordered Sikorski’s assassionation (see articles in the two most recent editions of H&D).

This weekend Macron is in London for celebrations to mark the 80th anniversary of Gen. Charles de Gaulle’s declaration in 1940 that rallied a minority of Frenchmen in an anti-German alliance with Winston Churchill’s British Empire.

(Presumably statues of these ‘racist colonialists’ will be protected for long enough to avoid embarrassment!)

Meanwhile France is preparing for the long-delayed second round of municipal elections being held in most of the country in nine days time (28th June). The first round was held way back on 15th March, but the second had to be postponed for three months due to the Covid-19 crisis.

These elections are in 35,000 communes across France, ranging from tiny villages to big cities. The three biggest cities – Paris, Lyon and Marseille – also have elections for arrondissements, roughly the equivalent of London boroughs, as well as city-wide councils.

Those communes with more than 1,000 electors vote on a two-round party list system, with the head of the winning list becoming mayor. To qualify for the second round a party list must poll above 10% in the first, but parties polling above 5% can negotiate to merge their lists with larger parties in advance of the second round, allowing many opportunities for horse-trading.

Serge Federbusch, the half-Hungarian, half-Algerian Jewish mayoral candidate in Paris for Marine Le Pen’s ‘far right’ National Rally (RN)

So in Paris for example, the incumbent Socialist mayor Anne Hidalgo looks certain to win after striking a deal with the Greens to form a joint second round slate. The conservative slate in the French capital is headed by Rachida Dati, a half Moroccan, half-Algerian woman who once served as a spokesman and minister for ex-President Nicolas Sarkozy. This conservative slate is headed for second place, while Macron’s ‘centrist’ slate, headed by yet another woman, is in third.

Greens polled very well across the country during the first round contests in March, which were also notable for very low turnouts due to both Covid-19 and general political disillusionment. For whatever reason these low turnouts seem to have contributed to quite poor results for the main French nationalist party, Marine Le Pen’s National Rally (RN – formerly the National Front) as well as for the far left.

Le Pen’s RN – which traditionally struggles in these local elections because the two round system doesn’t suit ‘extremist’ parties – has been reduced to a small number of strongholds such as Hénin-Beaumont in the far north Pas de Calais region.

Despite forming a joint slate with the eurosceptic party Debout la France, the RN managed only 8,114 first round votes (1.5%) across the whole of Paris, where its mayoral candidate was ex-socialist Serge Federbusch, son of Hungarian and Algerian-Jewish communists. This was down from 42,560 votes (6.3%) in 2014.

However the good news for Le Pen (and perhaps also for the struggling President Macron) is that the conservative right is also failing. For example, the incumbent conservatives were beaten into second place by a green-socialist slate in Marseille.

Le Pen’s RN slate finished third in Marseille with 19.4% (having been runner-up with 23.2% at the previous elections in 2014), but whereas the greens, socialists, communists and all but one of the ultra-leftist factions have united for the second round, the conservatives still regard Le Pen’s movement as ‘beyond the pale’, so they will continue to oppose each other.

So long as there is no ‘mainstream’ conservative revival, Marine Le Pen is likely to qualify for the run-off in the next presidential election, either against Macron or some sort of socialist.

Marion Maréchal – niece of Marine Le Pen and granddaughter of Jean-Marie Le Pen – might be the future of French nationalism.

One remaining question is whether Macron will run his full presidential term until 2022, or choose to call a ‘snap’ election this year and seek a fresh mandate post-Covid. Despite his unpopularity, this might prove his best bet due to a divided opposition, but the question then would be whether this election (in 2020 or 2022) is Marine Le Pen’s last shot.

The RN leader has made a lot of enemies with her efforts to purge the RN of traditional nationalist themes. An example of this could be seen this week, as Marine Le Pen sought in vain to be included in the ranks of mainstream politicians paying tribute to De Gaulle.

The next presidential campaign will be her third. Will she be allowed a fourth? Or will French nationalism once again head for realignment under a new leader, perhaps Marine Le Pen’s niece Marion Maréchal?

Fade to Black – The darkening of our screens and its part in the theft of our past and our future

You fly into London on a British Airways plane on which you are shown an animated film about safety. It stars a cartoon Black man with his cartoon White wife and their cartoon mixed-race child. You pass through immigration control and are poked and probed by Brown people wearing hijabs and turbans who jabber at you in an unintelligible version of the English language. Heading for the tube you pass a poster that shows a Black woman dressed in Elizabethan garb beckoning you to the Globe Theatre. On the ride into town you see posters for the latest West End plays. There are productions of Shakespeare’s Richard II and Henry V starring Black women in the title roles. (The critics rave that these classic plays finally make sense.) There is also an Asian actor playing David Copperfield and Christmas pantos starring Blacks and Asians as Cinderella, Dick Whittington and Snow White. Next to the entertainment ads are those for mortgages and mattresses all featuring Black men with White women. And, they are almost always blonde women.

You get home, put your feet up in front of the TV and notice that there are an unusually large number of Brown people on the streets of Victorian London as depicted in the BBC’s latest version of A Christmas Carol. And, the villages of Midsomer are teeming with more people-of-colour than your local benefits office. Even Doctor Who is suddenly a Black woman! You channel surf and are confronted by Black Vikings, Black Centurions, Black Tudors and an Asian King Arthur! The news is read by a Brown person. The weather is given to you by a Brown person. Your favourite gardening program is presented by a Brown person. The Brown person presenting your favourite wildlife program explains without a trace of irony the danger of extinction faced by native fauna and flora due to the invasion of alien species.

In disgust, you turn off your TV and browse through the latest brochure from The National Trust. But something is odd – most of the people shown wandering around the stately homes of England are Brown. The mothers of the large, happy families in the photos wear Muslim or Hindu garb. The only White faces are those of blonde women holding hands with Black men and their mixed-race children.

Meanwhile, your teenage son is in his room playing a new computer game set in World War I. But, in this version of the Great War the trenches look like a Saturday night in Brixton and the game’s logo is the face of a Black Tommy. You wonder if you have slipped into an alternate universe or are dreaming. But, you aren’t dreaming. You are living through a waking nightmare. And, I can tell you why.

Dev Patel (above right) as David Copperfield

I’ve been a professional actor for fifty years. I’m also a proud member of that most despised of all groups – old White men. I’m not a star or even a semi-name but you have probably seen and heard me many times. I know the world of advertising and show business. And, I know how, why and by whom our screens are being darkened, I am being denied work and our past and future are being stolen from us.

The answer is BAME. It stands for Black, Asian or Mixed Ethnicity. And, that acronym is now an essential part of every media company’s ethos. When a brand is hiring actors for a commercial or a production company is hiring actors for a play, movie or TV program, they proudly trumpet the fact that they prefer to see or will only see performers who are BAME. (Imagine what would happen if someone advertised with a preference for White.)

The Cultural Marxist octopus has many tentacles and has been at work in all the arts for many decades. As a child in 1950s America, I saw early attempts at “colour-blind” casting. But, in the 1960s, the prominent New York theatrical producer Joseph Papp started pushing it big-time in his Shakespearean productions in Central Park. (You will not be surprised to learn that Papp was a Jew.) I suffered through many productions of Romeo and Juliet with a Black Romeo and a White Juliet. Or, a Black Macbeth and White Lady Macbeth. The audience wasn’t supposed to notice these racial absurdities and anyone who did was a racist. So, most people pretended not to notice and they still do.

Oriental audiences are more forthright in their opinions. They want White heroes. Star Wars films that feature Black actors flop in China – a very important film market. So, the Star Wars producers avoid putting Black faces on the film posters. And, the latest Star Wars had to remove a gay kiss to make it acceptable to Orientals who want their heroes straight, too.

We Occidentals feel the same even if most won’t admit it. We vote in private with our money. The producer of the mega-successful comic-book “cape hero” film franchise let slip at a convention that movies and action figures based on non-White characters don’t sell – worldwide. The sale of dolls, clothing and mugs etc. is a major part of the profit stream for any film or animation. It is a racially revealing economic fact that Black Barbie and Ken dolls don’t sell – even to Black kids. Gay and trannie Barbies and Kens also gather dust on store shelves. White heterosexuality is the go-to choice for everyone.

But, shouting “Commercial considerations be damned”, the Cultural Marxists have doubled down in Britain and are putting propaganda ahead of profit. The British Film Institute (BFI) which bestows crucial funding to film projects fell into the tentacles of one Josh Berger, an American Jew with a long Hollywood history. Under Berger’s malevolent influence the BFI has mandated higher levels of BAME. Any production that does not meet the set levels will be denied funding and thus any chance of distribution or awards. It will be dead. So, producers genuflect to globohomo and grind out the anti-White, anti-heterosexual, anti-Christian propaganda that pollutes our screens. Adding insult to injury, we are paying for this filth because the majority of the BFI’s money comes from the UK taxpayer!

The levels of race and gender-blind casting mandated include –
• At least one lead character must be non-White
• 50-50 male-female ratio in entire cast
• At least 20% of cast must be non-White
• At least 10% must be LGBTQ
• At least 7% disabled
• A large proportion of plot lines and filming locations must be set among underrepresented groups.

With those parameters in mind, try writing a film that should by natural law, reason and historical fact be set in a White, male world. How can you fit that many women, homos, lesbians, trannies, Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Blacks and crippled, cis-phobic, bi-curious Eskimos into a Lancaster bomber, a monastery or the Alamo? And, I wonder if these same race and gender targets will apply if an all-Black film company sought funding for a movie set in a lesbian bathhouse in Somalia? Would the screenwriter have to find a way to squeeze White, Christian, hetero males into the steam room?

Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre recently produced Richard II with an all-black female cast

We aren’t being betrayed by the BFI alone. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts which bestows the prestigious BAFTA awards is equally on-board the globohomo express though it is (small comfort) privately funded. Still, if you want to win a BAFTA you must bow down to the Cultural Marxists who run that outfit.

And British Equity (the actors’ union) promotes and protects every race but White. It cares nothing for the race that only created theatre, film, television, radio, the internet and trade unions! It promotes and protects every sexual persuasion but heterosexuality. My union dues are currently paying for a campaign to ensure that “trans” actors get to audition for roles of any gender including those of the gender they claim to have left. Meanwhile, I can’t get an audition to play an old White guy because it’s being played by a Black female-to-male trannie!

The BBC admitted that its race-blind casting of period dramas is not historically accurate but feels it is important to do it in the interests of cultural cohesion. Well… if this BAME business is not part of an anti-White agenda but just a well-intentioned attempt to make us all race and gender-blind then when do I get to play Martin Luther King or Winnie Mandela?

Meanwhile, for all their disingenuous calls for race-blindness, Black performers insist on race based preferential treatment and love “acting Black” – especially in period dramas. Notice how Black actors in plays by Shaw, Ibsen or Wilde will use a ghetto pose and vocal inflection to get a cheap laugh. They are Black to their bones and they know it and are happy to play the minstrel if it’s to their advantage.

At this point a few questions come to mind. If non-Whites were important personages in what we thought had been a White world then what the hell are they complaining about? If Blacks really “wuz kangz” as the Black Israelites proclaim (including kangz of England) then where was the discrimination? And, if Blacks were capable of achieving so much back-in-the-day then what the heck happened? Did they simply forget how to be physicians, scientists, architects, engineers and, yes, kangz?

Remember those National Trust brochures full of photos of happy smiling Brown people? They are a staged hoax. The National Trust advertised on casting sites all over Britain for BAME models and actors to pose as visitors and staff at stately homes. But, in reality, if you visit NT properties you will see that with rare exception they are delightfully White in both staff and visitors. Still this hasn’t stopped the NT management from pushing globohomo. They “out” and promote queer members of the families that owned the properties. And, they suggest that bent Uncle Bertie was the best of the bunch. The NT even tried to force its volunteers to wear rainbow flags but most refused. Meanwhile, when I speak privately with older NT volunteers, I find they have fond memories of Enoch Powell and Oswald Mosley.

I have starred in many TV commercials for top brands that were broadcast worldwide. I assure you that it isn’t merely fashion or whim that matches so many Black men with White women. In a thirty second commercial every second counts and nothing appears on screen by chance. I have seen directors, clients and cameramen almost come to blows in arguments over the color of my shirt. How much more debate has gone into the colour of the actor’s skin? So, these racial pairings are not accidental but are blatant attempts to break down the resistance to race-mixing from all races. Listen to Black talk radio programs and you will hear Black women weep that Black men are encouraged to get blondes. In fact, Black Nationalists (our mirror image and possible allies) believe that race-mixing is the ultimate sin. And, we know what happens to Asian girls who race-mix. But, as with films, the Cultural Marxists don’t give a damn and plow on sacrificing profits for propaganda.

Case in point: Gillette recently ran an anti-male ad campaign that suggested all men (especially White men) are sex-pests. White men were outraged. This campaign culminated in an ad in which a Black father showed his daughter who had “transitioned to male” how to shave. This time Black men were outraged. This PC campaign cost Gillette a record amount of profit. But its CEO said it was worth it to promote diversity.

Alongside the tribe that foments and feasts off our replacement lives an opportunistic parasite – the Black “race hustler.” The uber-obnoxious Whoopi Goldberg is master of this scam. And, despite being as funny as a fire in an orphanage, Whoopi has made a fortune playing the fat, sassy soul-sista who is the depository of all wisdom. (Sort of an X-rated version of Mammy in Gone with the Wind or a potty-mouthed Aunt Jemima.) You’ll notice that this smart, sassy maid stereotype is a staple of sitcoms. She is always the smartest person in the house she cleans. She’s certainly smarter than the doofus White dad who is the butt of all her jokes. (There is literally a genre of US sitcom called “Doofus Dad.”)

Believing her own BS, Goldberg has morphed into a political pundit. She holds forth daily on US TV on all manner of subjects while injecting the race card into all of them – no matter how misplaced. She gets away with this because Whites are afraid of challenging her lest they be called racist. Believe me, if you think Jews are good at squeezing the holocaust into any discussion you ain’t seen nuthin’ till you see Whoopi at work. (We have the Jewish director Mike Nichols to thank for Goldberg’s rise to fame.)

Another race-hustler is Bonnie Greer, a smug, American negress based in the UK and a poor-man’s Goldberg. Greer is a regular on BBC political chat programs where she is introduced as, “Noted American playwright.” But, I challenge anyone on either side of the pond to name a single Bonnie Greer play. In fact, in America she is entirely unknown. The woman is a fraud. And, like Whoopi, she benefits from Whites’ reticence to call her out. Meanwhile, the BBC loves wheeling her out because it allows them to tick certain boxes on their diversity chart. Foreigner. Female. Black. Greer’s many appearances allow her to shoe-horn the race card into every subject imaginable while demonstrating the stultifying banality of her opinions. But, I gotta give this sassy, soul-sista credit because with no talent (especially no play writing talent) she has become the House Negro of the British middle-class and (wait for it) a board member of the British Museum!

Homosexuals are also useful idiots for their Cultural Marxist masters. They’ll do anything if it gives them the chance to snort poppers and wear frocks. The lesbians get to wear the pants on stage in taxpayer funded all-female Shakespearean productions. It is true that in Shakespeare’s day young men played the female roles. But, this was not transvestism by choice. It was necessary because women weren’t allowed on the Elizabethan stage. And, there was no kissing or touching in the original productions.

Homosexual playwrights, directors and designers rarely miss a chance to demean Whiteness and masculinity and to degrade females. In a recent London production of a play based on Patrick Hamilton’s brilliant WW2 novel The Slaves of Solitude, the queer director and adaptor changed the American GI who was the play’s love interest into a Black soldier. This was impossible casting for all sorts of reasons. But, it allowed the queers to indulge in their own fantasy of having a Black buck ravage the spinsterish English heroine.

There have been many other instances of plays and musicals being mangled by ludicrous race and gender-bending casting. Edward Albee, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Noel Coward and Rodgers and Hammerstein all forbade such changes. Some of those men were homosexual but they still recognised cultural vandalism when they saw it. Sadly, their estates are managed by their PC grandchildren determined to make their Grandpa’s back catalog hipster-friendly. That sound you hear is of those disrespected gents turning in their graves.

Meanwhile, the hypocrisy of the Cultural Marxists and their apparatchiks in the arts is stunning. They live in the Whitest communities they can find and send their children to the Whitest schools. (The Clintons live in the Whitest zip code in America, and Jewish Bernie Sanders moved from multi-ethnic Brooklyn to Vermont – the Whitest state!) The only contact these hypocrites have with any non-White is with their Black maid. And, if she gets too sassy, they’ll fire her Black behind.

As employers they are anything but progressive. All the major film, TV and commercial producers including the big streaming services film their projects in poor countries. South Africa and Eastern Europe are especially popular. They do this to bust the performer’s unions in the US and UK. This anti-worker behaviour is nothing new. In the 1930s, the Jewish movie moguls who ran Hollywood hired goon squads to bust up organising meetings for the Screen Actors Guild. Meanwhile, British Equity is too busy creating new genders to act as a genuine trade union and fight the media giants.

These media liberals also go abroad to abuse and exploit the local actors and crews. The same producers and stars who cry on the awards shows about Trump and climate change and animal rights allow film extras to be treated like cattle – forced to stand in the cold and wet for many hours (sometimes all night) and given little or no food and very meagre wages. I’ve had extras beg me for food while the loud-mouth lefty stars dined like Meghan Markle. And, the film crews are forced to work round the clock which leads to unsafe conditions. I have seen actors and extras almost decapitated by machinery. I have walked off unsafe sets but most actors are afraid to stand up for themselves.

If I sound angry it’s because I am. And, I’m proud of it. I’m also proud of my history, heritage and culture and I’ll be damned if I’ll let anyone degrade, destroy or steal them. My anger is fuelled by the blood of my ancestors that flows through my veins. And, as long as that most precious blood flows through me, I shall do all I can to expose and resist the deliberate genocide of our people. A genocide that is being dramatised and broadcast. On primetime. And, we are paying to watch the spectacle. If you don’t believe me just go to a movie or play. Turn on your radio or TV. Or, open your eyes. It’s happening. It isn’t a sitcom or movie. It’s real. It’s deliberate. And, we can stop it. But the entirely legal means of doing so are best discussed elsewhere. In the meantime – Hail Victory!

Jean Raspail, Charles Krafft and David Dees

Jean Raspail (1925-2020)

According to Eliot, April is “the cruellest month” – but this year June has put in a strong bid.

No sooner had we published an obituary to our old friend and comrade Eddy Morrison, than we heard of the deaths of three very different major figures in the worldwide movement for White resistance and historical truth.

Jean Raspail – who died on June 13th three weeks before his 95th birthday – was without doubt the best known. H&D readers will probably best remember him for his 1973 novel Camp of the Saints, a dystopian perspective on mass non-White immigration and the swamping of Europe.

A regular H&D contributor who is proficient in French will be writing about Raspail in a forthcoming issue of the magazine, so for now we shall simply repeat Jean-Marie Le Pen’s tribute: “Jean Raspail has departed just at the moment when his prediction arrived.”

Though I never met Jean Raspail, I did meet and correspond with the American artist Charles Krafft, who died the same day aged 72. Rooted in the ‘pop art’ of late 1960s hippies, and first becoming known in such circles as part of an artistic commune in Fishtown near Seattle, by the 1990s Krafft had become a collectable ceramicist. That is to say, he was commercially successful and his work was exhibited in mainstream galleries and purchased by ‘respectable’ people – for example the chief executive of sportswear company Nike had a Charles Krafft teapot in his office.

One of Charles Krafft’s famous teapots

In 2016 Krafft visited London where an exhibition of his work was planned for an East London gallery. This was cancelled after pressure from ‘antifascist’ magazine Searchlight, but Krafft was able to speak at a London Forum meeting organised by Jez Turner, alongside David Irving, Richard Edmonds, Lady Michèle Renouf, Dave Yorkshire of Mjolnir magazine, and Abdallah Melaouhi, Rudolf Hess’s nurse at Spandau.

Charles Krafft generously donated some of his work to an auction to raise funds for Horst Mahler, the imprisoned German philosopher and activist.

It was only during the last twenty years or so that Krafft became active in political and revisionist movements: this cost him a great deal financially and in disruption to his artistic career. His courage and commitment will be long remembered.

Charles Krafft in his studio

A very different artist who also came to politics in middle-age was David Dees, who died on May 31st aged 62. (Like Charles Krafft, Dees died from cancer.)

Whereas much of Krafft’s work involved the Third Reich and militaria, Dees focused on ‘conspiracy theory’ – indeed his art has perhaps had more influence on more ‘conspiracy theorists’ than any other individual has achieved.

Formerly based in Louisville, Kentucky, Dees lived in California for the last decade. During the 2016 Republican primaries, future President Donald Trump proudly held up a Dees print showing him engaged in ‘whacking’ leading liberal ‘moles’.

Unfortunately Trump himself went on to become part of the problem – but there’s a difference between art and politics…

Like Charlie Krafft, David Dees was bravely and generously committed to the cause of Europeans who fight for historical truth (and who face long jail sentences for what would in other fields be ‘normal’ research).

When truth, justice and racial identity prevail, Europeans will celebrate the memory of Jean Raspail, Charles Krafft and David Dees. Very different though they were in background, temperament and ideology, all three of these men were valiant warriors for the cause of embattled Europeans.

Eddy Morrison 1949-2020

Eddy Morrison 1949-2020

H&D greatly regret to announce the death of Eddy Morrison: proud Yorkshireman, veteran national socialist and a contributor to our magazine for many years. Eddy died on Wednesday following a fall at his home, a month before his 71st birthday which would have been 16th July.

A reprint of Eddy’s 2003 autobiography Memoirs of a Street Soldier was being launched to coincide with his birthday, but very sadly it now coincides with his death.

Educated at St Michael’s College, a Catholic grammar school in Leeds, Eddy Morrison had to leave school at 15 to earn a wage and support his family after his father was crippled in an industrial accident. Following teenage service with the RAF, he became an active racial nationalist in 1967 with the newly formed National Front, attending the NF’s first annual meeting at Conway Hall, Westminster in October that year. Though he had a great deal in common ideologically with the NF’s future leader John Tyndall, Eddy had been too young to be involved in the national socialist schisms of the early ’60s, so he was able to join the NF as an 18-year-old without any factional baggage.

In 1968 he succeeded Phil Stone as the NF’s Leeds branch organiser. Though he was to be a member – and indeed founder! – of numerous different parties and movements, Eddy’s ideology was to remain consistent for more than half a century. As he put it, he regarded national socialism and White racial nationalism as interchangeable terms.

In fact though he would often joke about the myriad organisations he had joined or founded, this is very much a reflection of our movement’s history. Unlike some other leading movement personalities such as Nick Griffin, Eddy did not blow with the prevailing wind, changing his ideological colours to suit personal advancement. Eddy remained Eddy.

In 1972 Eddy organised the Leeds branch of Colin Jordan’s British Movement, breaking away at the end of 1973 with a small group who formed the National Democratic Freedom Movement. Essentially Yorkshire-based, the NDFM quickly attracted a reputation for highly effective street activity. At a time when political violence was commonplace throughout the White world – often with the far left gaining the upper hand – Eddy’s street soldiers made much of West Yorkshire a “red-free zone”.

During 1975 the NDFM expanded, as Eddy recruited other national socialists from outside Yorkshire to expand the movement into a new British National Party. Though he was also to become a prominent organiser in John Tyndall’s BNP a few years later, this 1970s version was a completely different party.

During this period John Tyndall was engaged in a struggle for control of the NF, for a time losing the leadership to a Strasserite/populist faction led by former Conservative activist John Kingsley Read, so Eddy’s BNP attracted support from numerous national socialists who had quit the NF during this period.

The Morrison BNP continued and built on the NDFM’s fearsome reputation for taking control of the streets. It also became part of a growing national socialist network in Europe. German attorney Manfred Roeder was guest speaker at the BNP’s annual congress.

Once John Tyndall and Martin Webster had re-established control of the NF, it wasn’t long before Eddy Morrison and his BNP were invited to merge into the Front, and Eddy became the NF’s Yorkshire regional organiser. This period coincided with the international phenomenon of ‘punk rock’, in which Eddy had taken an early interest, attending early punk gigs including memorable appearances by the Sex Pistols in Manchester and Leeds.

He was quick to see the potential of this angry movement of working class rebellion (though of course it shocked more ‘respectable’ nationalists). As Eddy later wrote:
We either had to condemn Punk or use it. I chose the latter option and started a spoof fanzine called Punk Front which featured a NF logo with a safety pin in it. To my great surprise, Punk Front was a huge success and soon, especially in Leeds, NF members and supporters were going to the biggest Punk club around — the infamous F Club. I started to regularly go to the club and NF Punks were recruiting other punks. In a few months, the NF was the dominant political force on the big punk scene in Leeds. Music papers such as Sounds and the New Musical Express were taking an interest in us. Gary Bushell was sent up to look into the phenomenon. We had pro-NF letters published in many music papers and other punks started bringing out pro-NF fanzines. We even started two bands — the Ventz and the Dentists. Both these bands were to feature later on in the start of ‘Rock Against Communism.’

Eddy Morrison could justifiably claim to have been the founder of the White racial nationalist music scene, which was later to expand under the late Ian Stuart into Blood & Honour.

Around the time of Eddy’s 30th birthday in 1979, British nationalism had one of its watershed moments when the National Front began to fall apart following disappointing election results. A large part of the last forty years of Eddy Morrison’s life was to involve his attempts to navigate treacherous political waters and maintain uncompromising national socialism in the UK.

This included years of activism in the BNP and later NF, punctuated by attempts to form breakaway movements such as the National Action Party, White Nationalist Party and British People’s Party. At other times Eddy attempted to build cross-factional alliances, and at one stage was a leading figure in the Spearhead Support Group, formed to build support for John Tyndall in his quest to recapture the BNP from Nick Griffin.

In these many activities Eddy could count on a loyal cadre of supporters, notably his Bradford-based comrade Kev Watmough – and it’s fair to say that Eddy was shocked to have outlived numerous fellow streetfighters such as Dave Brown and Chris ‘Weasel’ Ledger.

Latterly Eddy published the online magazine White Voice, as well as contributing to H&D – both as author, reviewer and quizmaster at social events! It is impossible in one brief online article to encompass the life of this uncompromising national socialist warrior, and for obvious reasons we have avoided speaking about Eddy’s family, of whom he was so proud and who will miss him greatly.

Needless to say, the next edition of H&D will contain a full obituary of our friend and comrade Eddy Morrison.

Cattle die, and kinsmen die. And so one dies oneself. One thing I know that never dies: The fame of a dead man’s deeds

14/88 Eddy!

New nationalist party – La Rete (The Network) – formed in Italy

Roberto Fiore (above left) has been a close ally of Nick Griffin since the early 1980s. A few weeks ago Fiore was abandoned by most of his former followers in the Italian nationalist party Forza Nuova.

As of early May of this year a major split has occurred in Forza Nuova, a Nationalist Party in Italy which was founded and led by Roberto Fiore. For a period of time now it has been felt that the leadership in Rome has strayed from the beliefs the Party was founded on. Due to political differences it is believed that 75% of current membership have left along with two of the three Vice-Secretaries. Supporting groups such as Solidarietà Nazionale, Associazione Evita Peron, and Lega Della Terra have also joined in the exodus. The choice was not an easy one as many members have been involved from the beginning. They all have weathered the battles together and have held the torch of Nationalism through the years.

Out of this the membership has decided not to end the battle for freedom and continue to fight for the preservation of the culture and future of Italy. It has formed and given birth to the Rete Delle Comunita Forzanoviste. This is a temporary or rather interim organization being utilized to bring Nationalists throughout Italy together in a common cause. A new Party will be formed in the Autumn of this year. Already there have been discussions with new groups joining along as well as old members returning. There is a feeling of great enthusiasm and hope that the Rete (Network) will forge ahead and provide solutions for today’s problems in Italy and Europe as a whole.

Municipal councillor Antonio Fasano has led the entire Campania regional branch of Forza Nuova into the new organisation La Rete.

What is the Rete?

The Rete is a network of militant communities active all over Italy. These communities have decided to form a new nationalist movement with a common organization and style of action. The old nationalist associations seem to be outdated and unable to solve new problems. On the other end, the social situation is changing dramatically in our Country. The majority of people’s anger with the globalists has increased in number but they are ideologically confused. They understand – or better yet – feel the system is totally wrong but they have no idea of how to change it, let alone what to build upon its ashes. This means that the Rete will have to find new methods and elaborate a modern strategy, at the cultural level as well as in the streets. The Rete will work for the birth of a Nationalist Bloc together with other patriotic groups.

When did it start, and what are its goals?

It started on May 8th, a day dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel, chosen as the protector of all militant patriots. The Rete is formed by hundreds of activists with good discipline and experience. The first step was to give the Rete a solid organization: a centralized leadership – the Segreteria Nazionale – consisting of a team of both young and old people. It will also incorporate a number of political “commissions” to analyze specific aspects of the struggle (students, foreign policy, ideology, etc) and technical “offices” with specific tasks (graphic, legal, media, social and recruiting).

Salvatore Ferrara, head of Forza Nuova in the Lombardy region, is one of several leading figures in the party who have left to form La Rete.

The Rete has several so called “satellites” or parallel organizations. Solidarietà Nazionale is active in collecting food and helping poor Italians with food distributions (in contrast with the privileges accorded to immigrants). The Evita Peron Association is the women’s front, active against gender propaganda, it also takes care of a Summer camp for children and might soon start homeschooling, (quite uncommon in Italy, so far). The Lega Della Terra is for the peasants and farmers, and our young activists are forming a Rete Studentesca in the schools. We plan to form specific social cells in different categories, such as truck drivers, teachers, etc.

Our militants are also busy with operation “Quartieri Sicuri” (Safe Neighborhoods) walking the streets in dangerous urban areas. The Rete has just opened a website http://www.la-rete.it/ but we are going to open more, for the satellite organizations and for cultural articles.

What are the “8 Points” and what type of society do they aim to create?

The “8 Points” have contributed to form a whole generation of militants in Italy. Synthetically, they are 1) Prolife, 2) Pro natural family, 3) Stop immigration, start repatriation, 4) Ban freemasonry and other similar sects, 5) Ban usury, print only “people’s money”, 6) Restore the 1929 State/Church agreement, 7) Cancel all anti-patriotic laws, 8) Create workers’ corporations to protect the people from the globalists. The Rete has produced a Political Manifesto that derives directly from these principles and applies them to the new social situation regarding the State, the concept of National Identity and Italian/European Fatherland, the need for a Demographic growth, the Economy, the Judicial system, Education, and the Military. The Political Manifesto has been conceived as dynamic as every part can be developed into a larger specific political document and we welcome contributions from experts in the specific fields, inside or outside the Rete. We believe that experts and intellectuals should not confine themselves to pure theory, they must produce cultural weapons and ammunition for the political soldiers working in the streets.

The Evita Peron Association, which promotes traditional family values and organises nationalist family events, has broken away from the Forza Nuova structure and is now aligned with La Rete.

As for the society we want to build, it is a society based on natural law. You can call it a “New Order” as it will be totally different from the present, corrupt system but you can also call it an “Ancient Order” based on the values and teachings of our European forefathers, so probably the right definition is “Eternal Order” because the values of God, Fatherland and Family are always the pillars of our civilization. In our era the globalist agenda is threatening our national identity in every aspect of life: cultural, political, religious, ethnic, economic, etc. It is a totalitarian threat and therefore the defence must also be totalitarian. We cannot afford to underestimate even just one of the tentacles of the globalist monster.

How did you get involved, and what is your role?

I have been involved in militant activities all my life, just like my father before and my sons today … At the moment, I am a member of the Segreteria Nazionale and of the commission for developing the Political Manifesto. I am also active in building a cultural front for the Rete. In October the roles will be better defined in a Congress but on the whole, we wish to work as a team and hope to see as many new young leaders as possible at all levels of the Movement.

Milan student leader Alessio Toniolo is another prominent activist who has left Roberto Fiore’s Forza Nuova to join La Rete.

What will it do in the USA?

The branch in the USA will act as a support group for the Party in Italy. We will attempt to attract members here who have a love of either their Italian or European background. The hope will be by attracting attention to the Party we can help with the needed causes in Italy. Some of the planned activities are to spread awareness for the Party, write articles, and develop podcasts discussing issues in Italy as well as throughout Europe in the hope of awakening a nationalist spirit. We will reach out to Nationalist website and podcast hosts in an effort to help us promote and spread our message. In return we offer full solidarity and hope to reciprocate any needed help. We also wish to develop a network with other Nationalists here in the United States and to work together wherever possible. Our goal is similar to any other true nationalist group which is to preserve the culture and land of our family and forefathers.

What do you hope to achieve in Italy?

First of all, we have to contact other patriots and explain our strategy. Many of them have formed small local groups or do not belong to any association at all, however, by joining the Rete they can give a valid contribution to the cause. Local activities have already started but as soon as the “virus laws” relax, the Rete will organize bigger events. On September 29th (Saint Michael’s Day) all sections will renew the traditional “Solemn Promise” to St Michael the Archangel and in October the Rete will hold a National Congress. Strategically, we hope to show our people the way towards a nationalist reaction against globalism.

How do we contact you?
