Thank you, Richard Cotten.
On December seventh, 1993, a Black man, a Jamaican immigrant
named Colin Ferguson boarded the third car on the Long Island
Railroad 5:33 from Pennsylvania Station to Hicksville, Long
Island. According to police reports:
Ferguson boarded the ...train in Queens [in New York City].
He sat without incident as the train crossed into Long Island,
but as it left the New Hyde Park station just before Merillon
Avenue, he stood at the rear of the third car of the 12-car train
and began walking forward. He pivoted, then began shooting, first
left and then right, as he walked backwards. Every time he saw a White
man or woman in his sights, he fired. He also shot and killed an
Asian. He turned around, walking toward the door to the second
car, but then turned around again and resumed shooting. Ferguson,
police and witnesses said, walked silently up and down the third
car of the train, shooting people in the head, the neck, the
arms, the buttocks. One passenger quoted him as saying,
"You're going to get it, you're going to get it" as he
took the lives of the innocent people in that train car. There
were more White people than there were bullets in his magazine,
however, and twice he was able to pause, reload his weapon, and
begin shooting again.
As he paused to reload for a third time in a car filled with
bloodied, screaming passengers, three men jumped him from behind
and wrestled him down.
"He was just firing away at random," said Robert
Giugliano, a passenger shot in the chest. "I was jumping on
top of people. People were screaming. Next thing I know, the
train stopped, and the door wouldn't open. I got off under my own
power and collapsed on the grass. My chest was out to here. . . .
I thank God I was one of the fortunate ones."
Adding to the confusion was the fact that when the train
stopped, the doors of the front two cars - where many of the
passengers had run to get away from the gunman - would not open.
Long Island Rail Road officials said this was standard practice
because the Merillon Avenue station is not large enough to accommodate
a rush-hour train. In the frenzy and panic, passengers clawed at
the doors until a conductor opened them manually.
Many of the victims "didn't have a chance,"
according to Nassau County Deputy Chief of Detectives Mal Keeny.
One passenger was shot five times, another three. Four died on
the train, and the fifth and sixth died in the hospital. Twenty
more were injured.
The dead were identified as Mikyoung Kim, 27; James Gorycki,
51; Dennis McCarthy, 52, whose son, also a victim, is in critical
condition with a gunshot wound to the head; Theresa Westbury, 30;
Richard Nettleton, 24; and Amy Federici, a 27-year-old widow.
According to Keeney, Ferguson showed no remorse after he was
arrested, no sign of feeling for those he had injured or for the
families of those whose lives he had cut short. In his pocket
were four pages of notes titled "Reasons for This" in
which he detailed his grievances, mostly against what he saw as
racist Whites and "Uncle Tom" Blacks, an expression
meaning Blacks who go along with the supposed White Establishment.
If those notes hadn't been there, this savage racial attack might
have been only reported as yet another example of violence in our
major metropolitan areas, with the race of the attacker and
victims as usual not mentioned. But Colin Ferguson did have those
notes in his pockets, notes which not only set out in detail his
anger at supposed "racism," but which also stated
explicitly that he was going to kill Whites on their own home
turf, in the suburbs. That's why he waited until the train had
crossed over to Long Island to begin his attack. In his notes he
even states a desire not to embarrass the recent Black mayor of
New York City, David Dinkins, by having the killings take place
in the city itself. According to the Reuters News Agency;
Out of respect for the first black to lead the nation's
largest city he waited for the train to cross the city limits before
embarking on his bloody rampage. Ferguson, a black man born in
Kingston, Jamaica, "chose not to commit this in New York
City," said Nassau County Police Commissioner Donald Kane,
quoting from rambling notes written by the gunman. The writings
also made disparaging remarks about "Uncle Tom blacks,"
a reference to a black literary figure in the 1800s who tried to
curry favour with whites.
Police said Ferguson had... no known history of mental illness
or drug use.
The Wednesday after the attack, New York City police revealed
a prior arrest of Ferguson in 1992. In that incident, Ferguson
was seized by a passerby and three Transit Police after allegedly
attacking a white woman on a city subway train.
Ferguson claimed in a Dec. 3, 1992, letter to Mayor David
Dinkins and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly that he was the
target of racism by the woman and police.
Also revealed that Wednesday by Nassau County District
Attorney Denis Dillon were the contents of the notes allegedly
carried by Ferguson during the terror-filled shooting spree.
In sometimes fractured English, the notes said, "New York
City was spared because of my respect for Mayor David Dinkins and
Comm (Commissioner) Raymond Kelly while official still in office.
Nassau County is the Venue."
"He was a respectful guy," said Merritt Grant, 32, a
paramedic and neighbor. "You didn't hear him out there cursing
and drinking. There was no indication that he had any violent
Neighbor Carlos Mingot called Ferguson "a quiet man"
who "never acted like he was crazy."
Under the heading "Reasons for This," he listed New
York City police and New York Transit Authority police in an
apparent reference, they said, to a fight he had with a white
woman over a seat on a subway. Elsewhere, under "additional
reasons for this," he referred explicitly to the incident,
writing, "the false allegations against me by the filthy
caucasian racist female on the 1 line."
According to an article in the Washington Post:
The shootings escalated the national debate over gun control.
President Clinton said he hoped the tragedy would help lead to
tougher restrictions on guns. Larry Pratt, executive director of
Gun Owners of America, countered that if New York's gun laws
weren't so strict, another passenger might have been armed and
able to stop the gunman.
Ferguson, a Jamaican native who became a permanent legal U.S.
resident in 1986, bought the Ruger model P89 pistol at a
California sporting goods store for $300 this spring. He showed a
valid California driver's license to prove residency and got the
gun after a 15-day waiting period for the state to conduct a background
check, according to federal agents and store officials.
He apparently had no criminal record or history of mental
problems in California. The address on the driver's license was
of a Long Beach motel where he stayed for three weeks, the
motel's manager said.
A few days after the attack, President Clinton met with the
three men who wrestled Ferguson to the ground, quite properly
calling them heroes, but also quite cynically using these
unselfish men as props in a staged media event in which he called
for passage of his so-called "crime bill," which is
just another Liberal gun-grabbing measure in disguise. One has to
wonder what would have been Clinton's reaction if these men had
been armed, and if they had subdued Ferguson by shooting him as
soon as he got off his first shot. They quite likely would have
prevented all the deaths and most of the injuries, and a lot of families
would now be hugging their wives and husbands and children,
instead of burying them. But if they had been armed, and had
stopped the bloody rampage by using their weapons, would Clinton
be meeting with them and lauding them at the White House? I doubt
it. In fact, those heroes might today be facing criminal
prosecutions themselves along with accusations of committing
so-called "hate crimes," here in this crazy world
turned upside down that we live in today. Look at what happened
to Nassau County Executive Thomas Gulotta. After he referred
publicly to the killer as "an animal," a rather mild
description in my view, he was attacked by Jesse Jackson for
using racist and inflammatory rhetoric. If the American people
cannot see a lesson in this - if they cannot see that there can
be no agreement as to what constitutes justice between us and creatures
like Jackson who defend animals like Ferguson - if they cannot
see that we must separate ourselves and cleanse our society of
them now and forever more - then we deserve to lose America. And we
are losing America. We retreated from the Third World hellholes that
our center cities have become. Now, as these horrible killings
symbolize so well, even the suburban dream is becoming a
nightmare. The worst elements of our cities are, aided by equal
housing laws and by sheer increase in biomass, filtering into the
affluent neighborhoods surrounding our cities. White Flight is in high
gear once again. Refugees from California and the Eastern
Megalopolis are streaming into small-town America and mountain
passes from the Rockies to the Appalachians. Even though they
might never admit it to you, these people are segregating themselves,
they are fleeing to places where Liberal social engineering has
yet to make much of an impact, where they can live and raise
their children in a place that still resembles the real America.
What if, instead of running, the American people had put up an
effective resistance to the social planners who have remade
America over the last few decades?
For one thing, if the American people had spoken up loudly and
clearly against the opening of our borders in 1965, there would
be no Third World immigration, no Jamaican immigration, and no
Colin Fergusons in New York City. New York City might now be a
relatively pleasant and livable place, more like the New York our
older listeners there might remember, or our younger listeners
might get a glimpse of from old films like "Meet John
Doe" or "Miracle on 34th Street." Who even among
the Liberals can deny that an America without Third World
immigration would be a better and safer America?
If the American people - and especially the people on the Long
Island Railroad on that fateful day - had the good sense to arm
themselves when they travel through dangerous neighborhoods, and
the good sense to throw out of office any politician who even
hinted at taking away the American people's right to keep and bear
arms; then not only would Colin Ferguson have been dropped after
his first attempted murder, but it seems quite likely to me that
he and others like him would be a lot less inclined to attempt the
crimes of violence that scar our cities every day. We have
foolishly allowed minority gangs to run rampant in our cities.
They would be much more likely to leave the decent folk alone if
they knew that the decent folk were armed. Unless you are
willing, and I for one am not, to live in a police state with
armed officers on every street corner and in every train
compartment, there is no substitute for a well-armed populace.
It is clear that the goal of the anti-gun Liberals is not
stopping crime. If they really cared about stopping the criminals,
they'd throw unrepentant animals like the attackers of Reginald
Denny in jail and throw away the key, instead of letting most of
them go free and slapping one on the wrist.
As our founding fathers explicitly stated on many occasions, a
well-armed populace is also the best defense against tyranny in
government. That is the real reason why the traitors and
subverters who now rule us from Washington want to take our guns.
Our rulers' policies are making America more and more chaotic and ungovernable,
and they well know that the American people may wake up to see
the noose of tyranny being slipped over their heads. Many of
those Americans have guns, and our rulers want to get those guns, particularly
the more effective types of guns, out of the hands of decent Americans
before too many of them wake up to their patriotic duty.
Americans who supinely allow themselves to be disarmed, who
believe the lies that somehow the government will protect them,
are probably stupid enough to believe that "calling the
police" would protect them from Colin Ferguson if they had
been passengers in that train car on December 7th. People who are so
stupid probably don't deserve this great country that they are
rapidly losing. But they have been kicked in the head by Colin Ferguson,
and a kick in the head is exactly what the American people need
to wake them up.
If the American people had spoken out years ago, when the
leftist traitors and aliens were taking over our government and
our media, and stopped the takeover, America would be a very
different place today. For one thing, there would not now be the
tremendous racial hatred incited in Blacks and other minorities against
Whites. There would be no television entertainment and
"news" programs telling such people that all their
problems are caused by White people. There would be no rap music
inciting murder and rape of Americans in the tortured minds of
inner city denizens like Colin Ferguson. For decades, those who control Hollywood
and the network studios in New York have shoveled their excrement
and egregious lies into our living rooms and theatres, telling us
that European Americans, traditional Americans, should feel
guilty for our successes, should feel guilty for our greatness, should
feel guilty for being real Americans. Thus they inflamed the
hatred of and fed impossible ambitions among the minorities and disaffected
or unthinking Whites. Like many others, Colin Ferguson bought
into this Jewish Hollywood version of America the Racist, and it
validated if not created his hatred, and justified his actions.
If this takeover had been nipped in the bud, if Americans would
have rallied to the cause of patriots like Charles Lindbergh,
Henry Ford, and Senator Joseph McCarthy, America's government
would not be what we see today: A hypocritical government that pretends
to adhere to a color-blind standard, when in reality almost every
decision made by our government, whether executive, legislative,
or judicial, is done with the most careful consideration of race;
a government which forces businesses to hire and promote on the basis
of an employee's membership in a currently favored minority
group; a government which inflames hatred and frustration when it
promises an illusory "equality" which can never be
achieved in the real world. But so long as we are still free to
speak, so long as they have not yet disarmed us - we Americans will
continue to get exactly the kind of government we deserve.
Yes, an America without Third World immigration would be a
better America - both for real Americans and for Third Worlders
themselves. In Jamaica, where he was well educated and had every
advantage and had the comfort of living with and competing with
only his own people, Colin Ferguson might not have been driven to
his homicidal rage against Whites. And the thousand and one
unreported crimes against Whites that occur through every day and
night in our cities could ALL be stopped, if we would come to our
senses and realize that the multicultural ideal can never be achieved,
that the happiest and most successful societies are those which
remain true to their roots. There is no racial strife and hatred
in monoracial societies like Japan or Iceland. We can end it here
only by following their example.
An America where the decent and law-abiding have the guns, and
the criminal underclass have none would be a better America. But
those wolves in sheep's clothing called Liberals are doing their
masters' bidding in bringing into being through their so-called
"gun control" laws, exactly the opposite situation: ordinary Americans
are being disarmed while the criminal underclass obtains all the
weapons it wants as it always has - on the black market. Only
when patriotic Americans unite and sweep away all of these
"gun control" laws as the illegal and unconstitutional
trash that they are, and put murderers and criminals where they
belong - out of this country, in jail, or six feet under - will
we have that better America.
An America where the media and the government are owned and
controlled by real Americans; instead of by aliens, or
mouthpieces for the financial elite, or minority special
interests; would be a better America. It would be a return to the
real America of honesty, uprightness, moral courage and firmness,
decency, respect for our sacred cultural and genetic heritage,
and a bright and progressive future for our children.
We can have that real America again. But it will not be easy.
We can't have our country back on a silver platter. No one is
going to do it for us. We can't win back our nation while we
watch football or TV sitcoms. We can't win back our nation while
we allow our children to be brainwashed and turned against us in
the public schools. We are going to have to educate ourselves as
to the precise reasons why our nation has fallen to this low
state. We are going to have to find out who is responsible. And
we are going to have to put aside petty differences and unite to
cleanse and restore our nation. I assure you, ladies and gentlemen,
that the controlled media are not going to help us in this
necessary educational process. We're going to have to do it
ourselves. But you are not alone. It is by the sacrificial
donations of thousands of American patriots and friends of
freedom around the world that we are able to keep this radio
program on the air, that we are able to keep publishing books
that the New York publishers have suppressed, that we are able to
keep the flame of truth from being extinguished. To encourage you
to help us spread our patriotic message, we are today offering
one of the finest books in our catalog, a huge 217-page illustrated encyclopedic
compendium of the best articles from our patriotic newspaper from
over a twelve year period, entitled The Best of Attack and
National Vanguard. This important book will be the keystone of
your understanding of what has happened to America and what we
can do about it. It is yours as our Radio Offer Number 4. Send us
a donation of $25 or more to keep this program on the air, at
National Vanguard Books, Department R, PO Box 90, Hillsboro WV
24946 USA. Send us whatever you think this program is worth for your
future and your children's future. Everyone who sends at least $25
will receive this extraordinary book - a book which, at last,
gives us the side of the story that the major media don't want you
to hear - the American side. Our announcers will repeat that
address in a moment.
In a sense, all of us are passengers on that Long Island
Railroad Train, rolling toward our next stop, our destiny. Will
we act, and assure that our next stop will be victory and freedom
over the forces that are threatening to destroy us? Or will we
continue to do nothing? If so, our next stop may be oblivion.
Until next week at this same time and station, this is Kevin
Alfred Strom urging you to keep on thinking free.
