New archive for British ‘alt-right’ heritage

A newly launched online archive ‘Roots of Radicalism’ contains vital resources on the ideological heritage of our movement.

This website will be regularly updated and extended: it presently contains thirty articles from the British nationalist magazine Vanguard, first published during 1986/1987.

The site’s founders write:

The term ‘alt-right’ has become widely used in recent years. It does not describe a single, monolithic ideology, but rather a spectrum of related ideas and values. However, it can be said that the alt-right generally:

  • Recognises the positive values of group identities, nationalities and ethnicities;
  • Is prepared to unflinchingly challenge the dominant values of the liberal consensus, including the obsessive egalitarianism of the left;
  • Is not materialistic, and does not think that economic growth is the solution to every problem;
  • Does not believe itself to be on the same side as global capitalism – this, more than anything else, distinguishes the ‘alternative right’ from the conventional right.

Mainstream media commentators, blinkered by years of liberal orthodoxy, have tended to regard the alt-right as a disturbing, new phenomenon. We hope they are right to be disturbed, but they are wrong if they think that the ‘alt-right’ is new: its roots go back a long way, long before the term ‘alt-right’ had ever been thought of.

This website looks at the British contribution to this dissident political heritage, and – when finished – will include hundreds of articles from a wide variety of sources, from independent thinkers to those supporting nationalistic political parties.

As you will see these articles do not represent a single ‘party line’. The writers used a variety of different terms to describe themselves: not ‘alt-right’ but radical right or new right. Indeed many would have rejected the term ‘right-wing’ altogether, believing that they were trying to create an alternative to the existing, conventional Left-Right dichotomy and not wanting to be confused with the capitalist right. Such people generally used terms like ‘radical nationalist’ or ‘ethnic nationalist’ to describe themselves. Needless to say, the political Left used rather different terms, of varying degrees of ranting hysteria…

We believe, however, that the content of their writings are more significant than the labels attached to them. What these writers have in common is that they cared about Britain and the British people and tried to show that there is an alternative to the conventional ‘-isms’ of capitalism, liberalism, socialism or communism.

We hope you find this website to be a useful resource. It is our intention to add about thirty articles a month to the site, so please bookmark us, and visit us again from time to time. If there are worthy publications, authors and articles you feel we have overlooked please contact us and let us know – we make no claims to omniscience!

New organisation for prisoners’ aid: The Link

UPDATE: Please note Simon Sheppard’s new prison address, see below.

The Link has been formed as an urgent necessity to aid victims of government anti-race laws. Since the introduction of various measures, ostensibly to combat the menace of genuine terrorism, many dissident patriots have been arrested and harassed as a deliberate act of government policy.

The Link has been formed to help ensure that those accused of ‘hate crimes’ (thought crimes) obtain the full support of our freedom loving community throughout and beyond their current ordeal.

Lady Renouf to speak at SW Forum: BBC broadcast ‘Why Can’t We Question The Holocaust?’

Jez Turner of London Forum, recently jailed under the notorious race laws

South West Forum organiser Julie Lake has announced her next event for Saturday 4th August. Speakers will include Lady Michèle Renouf and Paul Ballard.

This will be a special fundraising event for Jez Turner, the London Forum organiser recently jailed under Britain’s notorious race laws.

Mrs Lake writes:

PLEASE TEXT ME ON 07432 843745 IF YOU CAN DONATE AN ITEM FOR THE AUCTION

THE SAME IF YOU CAN DONATE AN ITEM FOR THE RAFFLE.

PLEASE ALSO CONTACT ME, IF YOU WOULD LIKE A BOOK STALL AT THE MEETING.

I AM SURE YOU WILL ALL AGREE WITH ME, THAT JEZ HAS GIVEN SO MUCH TO OUR MOVEMENT, THAT THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO DO SOMETHING FOR HIM. ALL PROCEEDS AFTER RUNNING COSTS, WILL GO TO JEZ ON HIS RELEASE FROM PRISON, TO HELP HIM WITH ACCOMMODATION, AND PERSONAL EXPENSES.

IT IS A FITTING TRIBUTE TO JEZ THAT MICHELE AND PAUL WILL BE THERE TO SPEAK, AS TWO OF THE COUNTRIES MOST NOTABLE NATIONALISTS. A FURTHER TWO SPEAKERS AWAITING CONFIRMATION.

A FURTHER NOTICE WILL FOLLOW, NEARER THE TIME.

As a preview of this event, readers can now access an online version of two BBC broadcasts featuring Lady Renouf:

The BBC World Service in February 2009 broadcast an extraordinary progamme entitled “Why Can’t We Question About The Holocaust”. This Question was debated on worldwide radio during an hour-long show in which the two contenders, the British champion of normal historical revisionist source criticism without exception Lady Michèle Renouf, versus the Jewish American “Holocaust” extermination theorist Professor Deborah Lipstadt, were invited to answer phone-in queries from the BBC’s global audience. The prompt for this one-off free speech opportunity on this exceptionalist topic arose as follows.

On 25th February 2009 the traditional Roman Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson made worldwide headlines when he arrived at Heathrow Airport following his expulsion from Argentina, where he had taught at a seminary for five years. These extraordinary events were due to Bishop Williamson expressing his opinion on recent ‘revisionist’ scholarship regarding the alleged homicidal gassing of six million European Jews, supposedly on the orders of Adolf Hitler – a version of history which has been effectively trademarked and sacralised as ‘the Holocaust’.

Expressing doubts about the new universal religion of Holocaustianity, or even calling for its emotional claims to be forensically substantiated by critical examination of historical sources and scientific analysis of evidence, has become a crime in many European countries (though not yet in the UK). Bishop Williamson had been ambushed by a Swedish television crew in Germany, one of the countries where expression of ‘revisionist’ opinions is illegal.

In the hours after Bishop Williamson’s arrival in London, Lady Michèle Renouf – who had mobilised a legal team the previous year to defend Australian revisionist Dr Fredrick Töben and defeat the German government’s attempt to prompt English law, via the ‘ back door’, to “harmonise” with Germany’s “Holocaust-denial laws” by extraditing him from the UK on a European Arrest Warrant – was interviewed on two of the BBC’s flagship radio programmes.

First, on the main lunchtime news bulletin The World at One, Lady Renouf debated the issues raised by the Williamson case with Lord Janner (the former Labour MP Greville Janner), vice-president of the World Jewish Congress and co-founder of the Holocaust Educational Trust. Lord Janner was then among the most eminent leaders of the Anglo-Jewish community, though he was disgraced by allegations of paedophile abuse in the the years before his death in 2015.

In the evening of the same day, historical ‘revisionist’ supporter Lady Renouf was one of the two main guests in an hour-long debate – “Why Can’t We Question About The Holocaust?” – and phone-in on the BBC World Service, alongside American academic Deborah Lipstadt, whose allegations against British historian David Irving were the basis of a famous libel case in 2000. Irving’s case, in turn, had relied upon the ground-breaking trials in Toronto Canada in the late 1980s when revisionist scientific findings and “Holocaust” eye-witnesses exposed in cross-examination that the many testimonies and claims deployed “poetic licence”. Ever since, open objective forensic scrutiny of the scientific issues remains off-limits and emotionally barred from normal historical source critical debate. Even the “International Guidelines for Teaching About The Holocaust” insist on Page 11 that: “Care should be taken not to disprove the deniers’ position through normal historical debate and rational arguement”. Exceptionalist laws seek to progress the prosecution of all reasonable investigation as the “criminal” act of heretics.

Monika Schaefer imprisoned: her brother Alfred and Lady Michèle Renouf arrested – two videos from Germany

Canadian-German violinist and former Green Party candidate Monika Schaefer remains imprisoned in Germany following her arrest in January under the notorious German law dictating the approved interpretation of 20th century history.

Regularly updated information about Monika’s case can be found at the website of the Canadian Association for Free Expression.

Last December Monika met with a small group of friends (including several H&D subscribers) to celebrate the traditional festival of the Winter Solstice. The video below is a memento of this occasion and is posted here as a tribute to the brave Monika Schaefer.

H&D readers outraged by Germany’s abandonment of the normal traditions of free historical enquiry can write to Monika Schaefer at her prison address:

Monika Schaefer
JVA Stadelheim
Schwarzenbergstr. 14
81549 München
GERMANY

Monika’s brother Alfred Schaefer is also now facing criminal charges for the speech he gave in February 2017 at a commemoration in Dresden of the terrible Holocaust carried out in that city by British and American terror bombing in February 1945.

At this year’s Dresden commemoration, Lady Michèle Renouf, British campaigner for the right of free scientific and historical enquiry, was herself arrested following her speech which can be viewed in the video below.

It is truly tragic that the German police and authorities feel compelled so to dishonour their own civilian dead, by criminalising the holocaust of hundreds of thousands of their fellow countrymen, including countless women and children burned alive seventy-three years ago in Dresden.

H&D will continue to carry regular updates on the worldwide struggle to save traditional European freedoms.

 

British Australian Community Britfest 2018

I had the pleasure of attending BRITFEST 2018 which was held in one of the inner suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. The spacious hall was a pleasant venue for such an occasion and an audience of about 250 enjoyed the British-centric entertainment on offer. Organised by the capable office bearers of the British Australian Community, the BRITFEST has been running for about 30 years and showcases some of the great British traditional entertainment that many might have forgotten.

The history and culture of Australia from 1788 until recent times is simply an extension of the history and culture of the British Isles. English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh (plus a few related Northern Europeans) came to Australia and created the culture that we now recognise as traditionally Australian. The purpose of the non-political, non-sectarian BAC is to

  • Represent the interests of British people and their descendants in Australia
  • Promote British culture and its uniquely Australian expression and evolution
  • Make representations to Federal, State and local governments and statutory bodies and the media in support of our community
  • Combat prejudice and misunderstanding regarding British people and their descendants
  • Provide social activities for our community that celebrate our heritage and identity.

Anyway, to BRITFEST 2018:

I arrived around 10am on a beautiful autumn day and was pleased to see all manner of British flags in evidence, covering walls, windows and hanging from any available vantage point. The room was filling nicely and after a brief welcome to BRITFEST 2018 by the BAC President, we headed straight into a display of Morris Dancing by a local team of Morris Dancers, resplendent with their multi-coloured coats, shin bells, handkerchiefs and sticks. Sometimes subtle, sometimes rather brutal with the wafting and hitting of sticks, each demonstration of this traditional dance managed to finish without injury to the participants or audience.

Next was a performance of an all-girl singing group who regaled us with some beautiful traditional and more modern songs performed in the Welsh language.

Despite the efforts of the Plantagenet kings, Scottish dancing has survived through the centuries and we had a Melbourne-based Scottish Dance Group, accompanied by a piper, sweeping the dance floor with a flurry of tartan.

Scottish Dancing at Britfest 2018

What would any festival of Britishness be without some readings from Robert Burns? We all enjoyed the background information and readings from the great Scottish poet followed by a military re-enactment group who showed us some drill whilst dressed in early 20th Century uniforms and carrying interesting looking long rifles with bayonets. Because this year’s BRITFEST was held indoors, the soldiers couldn’t fire their weapons, but a few hearty shouts of “BANG” at the appropriate times by the men in uniform (with the occasional audible ‘click’ shout, depicting a misfire) certainly gave us the idea of what was happening.

During the day, these artistes performed varied items in a revolving cavalcade of British entertainment. A Punch and Judy show was also available for the littlies who had tired of skipping unhindered around the dancefloor in 19th Century style clothes).

Of course, watching these people showcase their talents and applauding them with gusto, one tends to build up a thirst and a healthy appetite. The BAC had that covered, with a wide range of British beers available in cans and bottles; unfortunately no draught, but that is understandable. There were also scones with jam and cream, black pudding, haggis, Cumberland sausage and other delicacies available and, this being Australia, all was cooked on a sizzling BBQ (apart from the scones, of course).

As the afternoon meandered on and I became rather partial to a Speckled Hen or two (ahem), I made my way outside to meet some of the audience who were also in need of sustenance. It was a welcome sight to see Australian men and women in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s rejoicing in their antecedents’ heritage and discussing their background with pride in broad Australian accents.

The whole show wound up about 4pm and all who attended seemed very happy at the standard of the entertainment and refreshments. I might have flown 1,000km to visit this event, but it was certainly worthwhile and as long as the young men and women can resist the multicultural garbage being pushed by our current and past range of politicians, I believe that the BAC and BRITFEST will have a healthy future. Why not look at attending BRITFEST 2019? It might be a long way away from Britain, but the trip will be worthwhile, if only to see that, in this outpost on the other side of the world, some truly British traditions remain.

Wassail!

Bob Batten RIP

National Front chairman Kevin Bryan writes:

On Tuesday 10th April I attended the funeral of Nationalist stalwart Robert Batten. The funeral was held in Wallsend, North Tyneside.

Bob Batten was for many years a member of the National Front and he stood in many elections, they include three General Elections, two Mayoral Elections and seven Council Elections.

The late Bob Batten (left) on a National Front activity in Newcastle with his longstanding friend and comrade Simon Biggs.

We believe Bob was the first National Front candidate since Martin Webster to retain his deposit. Bob achieved this as the North Tyneside Mayoral candidate for the National Front, Bob polled over 2500 votes and exceeded the 5% needed to retain his deposit.

Bob Batten died of a heart attack aged just 68: all his working life Bob had been a grafter, a very honest, loyal & proud man.
For many years Bob had been very good friends with Simon Biggs and his wife Hazel, and Simon paid a fitting tribute to Bob with an excellent speech in the church.

Simon and fellow Nationalists clubbed together for a beautiful Union Flag floral tribute. I was proud to travel to the North East to pay my respects on behalf of the National Front.

RIP Bob Batten

Kevin Bryan
Chairman, National Front

 

H&D’s Peter Rushton adds: Bob Batten was for many years the most reliable stalwart of nationalism in North East England – an area traditionally dominated by a monolithic Labour vote. As NF candidate for North Tyneside’s Wallsend ward in 2004 he took more than 10% of the vote, then in 2007 he polled more than 14% in Howdon ward.  He contested the same area again in 2010, 2011 and 2012 – on the latter occasion finishing runner-up to Labour.

With the collapse of UKIP a radical nationalist challenge will once again be the only true opposition to Labour in areas such as North Tyneside. Bob Batten’s premature death deprives the NF of a loyal standard bearer in the battles to come: a new generation of nationalists will have to live up to his example.

Gerd Honsik, 1941-2018

Poet and historical revisionist Gerd Honsik died on Saturday 7th April at his home in Sopron, Hungary, just across the border from his native Austria.

A political activist since the 1960s, Honsik had been a federal executive member of Austria’s National Democratic Party, which was banned in 1988 under increasingly draconian anti-democratic laws designed to protect the political establishment.

That same year Honsik wrote a book titled Freisprüch für Hitler? (Acquittal for Hitler?), questioning the historical orthodoxies that are now backed by the full force of criminal law in much of Europe.  This began thirty years of legal persecution.  In 1992 he was given an 18-month prison sentence by a Vienna court, having already been convicted in Munich: both the Austrian and German legal systems ruled that historical revisionism amounted to “incitement” and that, as under British race laws (which do not yet criminalise revisionism), the truth is no defence.

Honsik fled to Spain to escape this persecution, and while in Spain published further revisionist article in the magazine Halt.  He remained in exile until Spanish law was changed to permit his arrest and extradition to Austria in 2007, then began serving the 18-month sentence from fifteen years earlier, and in 2009 was convicted of additional offences and given a further five year prison sentence. This was reduced on appeal to four years, but an extra two year sentence was added in 2010.

The famous 2006 Tehran Conference on the Holocaust was partly at Honsik’s instigation, after he had asked Iran’s Ambassador to Germany in December 2005 whether the Islamic Republic could provide legal or diplomatic assistance for the Canadian-German revisionist publisher Ernst Zündel.  Honsik was forbidden to travel to Iran, but the Tehran Conference was addressed by his attorney Dr Herbert Schaller. In 2011 Dr Schaller won his client an early release from prison, but nevertheless Honsik had served four years merely for the normal pursuit of historical enquiry.

Gerd Honsik took refuge in Hungary last year, as the Austrian authorities were threatening further legal moves against him. His death marks another heroic milestone in the pursuit of historical truth and justice. Within the last eight months we have lost Ernst Zündel, his widow Ingrid Rimland Zündel, Don Salvador Borrego, Dr Herbert Schaller, and now Gerd Honsik. They lit a flame that younger generations must now carry forward.

 

London demo in support of White farmers in South Africa

On Saturday 7th April 2018, National Front activists, supporters and friends organised a demo at the South African Embassy in central London, opposite Trafalgar Square. Here is the statement made in front of the Embassy by the National Front spokesman:

We are here today before the South African Embassy in the centre of London. We are here to remember and to condemn the betrayal committed against White-ruled South Africa, the betrayal committed by the British and American governments of Margaret Thatcher and President Ronald Reagan; and we are here to remember and to mourn the victims of the vicious crimes that since the ending of White-rule, have engulfed South Africa.

British citizen Sue Howarth – tortured and murdered in February 2017 – is one of the many White South Africans who have been killed on their farms

Modern South Africa has become the murder and rape capital of the world: forty thousand women are raped every year in South Africa; and twenty thousand murders are committed every year in that unhappy land. That means a hundred rapes are committed every day…day after day after day; and fifty murders are committed every day…day after day after day.

We remember in particular the thousands of White farmers and their families hideously tortured and murdered; the very farmers who grow the food that feeds the country.

We also remember the victims of the so-called necklaces – the hideous form of murder invented and promoted by Winnie Mandela, whereby a rubber-tyre is fixed around the neck of the victim, the hands bound or hacked off, and petrol poured into the rubber-tyre and then set alight, the heat and the smoke and the flames smothering the face and engulfing head of the victim; it might take up twenty minutes for the victim to die.

We deplore the passing of White-ruled South Africa;

We say: Rest in Peace all the victims of murder, hideous torture and barbarism;

We condemn the British and American governments for their betrayal and destruction of White civilisation in Southern Africa.

Further details are available at the National Front’s website.
