Needed: Real Independence

People who throw away their own independence and freedom lose the ability to control their government. And soon it is no longer their government any more.

American Dissident Voices broadcast for July 2, 2006
by Kevin Alfred Strom

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY. I'm a positive person, and there is hope, so I kept the "happy" in there -- even though there's a lot to be unhappy about this Fourth of July, 2006; mainly three things: our people's loss of independence; our failure to understand what "independence" is; and -- worst of all -- our failure to even know who we are.

So get out those made-in-China fireworks and whoop it up, if you want to. I don't care if you do or you don't. I know your children probably like fireworks. But don't ever forget what this day stands for. One Hell of a lot of people suffered and died for the independence the foolish and the stupid are throwing away. Spend one hour studying and thinking about what independence really means, one hour out of 24. And share what you learn with your children. Let's start now.

The U.S. Congress recently went into convulsions over the renewal of the 1965 "Voting Rights Act." The Voting Rights Act, signed by President Lyndon Johnson, was one of many anti-White and anti-American initiatives that took place that year: It was the year our borders were opened and our pro-White immigration laws were scrapped, for example.

The purpose of the Voting Rights Act was to dismantle every state and local law -- such as literacy tests -- that tended to favor White voters. Certain counties -- and even whole states -- had to submit every voter registration or district boundary change to the federal government in Washington before it could be approved. In some areas, the federal Department of Justice moved in and controlled everything, shouldering local officials aside. How did the Act determine which areas "needed" federal control and which didn't? As we published recently on one of the sections up for renewal is "a requirement that any state or county with a history of favoring White interests get pre-approval from the U.S. Justice Department or a federal court before they change their election laws or procedures."

That's right. Federal control kicks in if the multiracialist bureaucrats decide that a state or county has "a history of favoring White interests." If officials favor non-White interests, no problem. If they favor Blacks or Mestizos or even illegals -- no problem. But if the bureaucrats decide they've ever favored Whites or favor Whites now, that must be stopped. It's easy to see where this Act has led and will continue to lead: Voter registration rules must be written and district boundaries must be drawn -- and every other jot and tittle of regulation must be crafted -- to increase non-White representation and decrease that of Whites. It's a one-way ratchet, dispossessing White people of representation. As our staff stated:

'Enacted by the 89th Congress, the Voting Rights Act was aimed at thwarting the efforts of Whites to protect their race's interests in states that had large Black minorities. As different, and in many ways unequal, races, Whites and Blacks have necessarily diverging interests, making racial conflict inevitable in any society in which both races live in large numbers.

'This antagonism was created by the granting of citizenship to former slaves following the Civil War, and was foreseen years earlier by Thomas Jefferson, who anticipated the sort of conflicts that would result from attempts to equalize the races, of which the Voting Rights Act is but one of many examples.

'A member of the American Colonization Society, the third President advocated the colonization of freed slaves outside of the United States. To the objections of the egalitarians of his time, he replied in words that now seem hauntingly prophetic.

'"It will probably be asked," Jefferson wrote, "Why not retain and incorporate the blacks into the state, and thus save the expense of supplying, by importation of white settlers, the vacancies they will leave? Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the whites; ten thousand recollections, by the blacks, of the injuries they have sustained; new provocations; the real distinctions which nature has made; and many other circumstances, will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions, which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race."

'More than forty years have now passed since Lyndon Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law. In that period of time, the U.S. Congress has perversely favored the interests of the Black race at the expense of the interests of the race of most of its members. Jewish domination of the means by which information is disseminated to the American people -- a development never envisioned by Jefferson -- has made many of them afraid to do otherwise.

'This fear has been the decisive factor in Black ascendancy over the past two generations, which has necessarily taken place at White expense. The "convulsions" that Jefferson predicted have not yet ended, and America's present demographic trends are such that if her leaders do not soon begin to heed his words, the race in whose extermination they will end will be ours.'

What Jefferson wanted -- and what the pre-"Voting Rights Act" laws tried to secure for us -- was independence. White Americans fought hard for independence. Independence as a people. A people with a shared ancestry, shared history, shared language, and shared culture. (White Americans are every bit as much a people as Frenchmen or Britons or Palestinians or any other people you care to name. And it's not place of residence that makes you a member of a people -- if that were true, a mouse in a stable would be a horse, and Mexican Mestizos would be Americans. It's all the things I mentioned, but mainly it's your ancestry that makes you what you are and which determines the content of your culture.)

White Americans fought hard for independence from the British Empire in the Revolutionary War. We wanted to make our own decisions. We wanted those decisions to be made based on what was good for us, not what was good for a far-away dynasty (which, by the way, utilized lots of non-White labor and also countenanced the virtual slavery of White people). Everybody knows we celebrate that independence on July 4th.

But those men who imposed literacy tests and other measures in the South to keep the fecund non-White mob from controlling the political process were also working to keep decision-making power in the hands of our people. So were Jefferson and the other Founders of the American Republic when they made sure that only Whites were counted as citizens -- and that only Whites could become citizens, too. They didn't hand out ballots to Amerindian tribesmen. They didn't hand over citizenship rights and political power to Africans. They didn't open the border to aliens and stand there, offering them jobs -- and green cards -- and taxpayer's money -- and amnesty for breaking our laws -- and even the right to change our laws. No. That would have been absurd. That would have been the diametric opposite of what the Founders had been fighting for. That would have been giving up our independence. That would have been giving up our right as a people to have our own government just for us -- a government by White Americans, for White Americans, and of White Americans. That is the essence of independence. That is the essence of what the Founders created when they created America. That is the essence of what our soldiers died for. That is the essence of what made America great.

The Founding Fathers were White separatists almost to a man, and the Republic they founded was, albeit imperfectly, a White separatist nation until the subverters really took control in the 1960s.

The subverters used their radio and television networks and newspapers and publishing houses to convince us that not giving away our nation to non-Whites -- that not giving away our independence and self-government -- was "hate" and "evil." But wanting one's own people to have its own government and its own nation -- and wanting one's own people to survive -- does not necessarily entail "hate" of other peoples or other races. Why should it?

The truth is that racial hatred is greatly increased by the forced association inherent in a multiracial society, as our newspapers amply show.

Where the races have their freedom and independence there is very little hatred involved. Do the Danes hate the Japanese, or the Guatemalan Indians the Bushmen of South Africa? I don't think so. But drop 1,000,000 Danes in Osaka -- or 500,000 Bushmen in Quetzaltenango -- and I think you'd see some real problems.

The author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, was a lifelong racial separatist who not only did not want integration, but who actually wanted Africans to be relocated to another continent entirely.

Those who control the media are desperate to revise Jefferson so that they won't have to eject him from the American pantheon, though The Atlantic floated the idea (proposed by tired old establishment warhorse Conor Cruise O'Brien) that Jefferson be evicted from his place of honor in American history because Jefferson's philosophy is incompatible with "multiracial democracy." And so it is!

O'Brien states "It follows that there can be no room for a cult of Thomas Jefferson in the civil religion of an effectively multiracial America -- that is, an America in which nonwhite Americans have a significant and increasing say. Once the facts are known, Jefferson is of necessity abhorrent to people who would not be in America at all if he could have had his way." And WorldNet Daily conservative "star" Richard Grenier said in the Washington Times that Jefferson was comparable to Heinrich Himmler, and declared that the Jefferson Memorial should be demolished stone by stone.

Throughout his public life, Jefferson held true to his concept of humane racial separation which he summed up in his Notes on the State of Virginia (1781, Query XIV):


Among the Romans emancipation required but one effort. The slave, when made free, might mix with, without staining the blood of his master. But with us a second is necessary, unknown to history. When freed, he is to be removed beyond the reach of mixture

Removed beyond the reach of mixture! And, it goes without saying, granted his own independence in a distant land for the express purpose of preserving our independence. No wonder the multiracialists who have taken over conservatism want Jefferson's memorial torn down brick by brick. If you're near Washington, I suggest you lay a laurel there this week.

But multiracialists, some of them malicious and some of them "equality" lunatics -- and greedy businessmen who wanted cheap labor -- prevented the repatriation idea from ever really getting anywhere. The millions of freed slaves and their descendants stayed in America (and are now being supplemented by even more non-White "cheap labor" invaders).

Some of the old Anglo elite treated their own people like garbage, and continue to do so -- particularly in their enthusiastic (or pretendedly enthusiastic) embrace of the new-money Jews' multiracial imperative.

The "colonization," as the relocations of freed slaves were then called, began in the early 19th century, under the sponsorship of many prominent men. Their efforts were enough to create Liberia and its capital city, named for one of the backers, James Monroe. But they never really made a dent in the African population of the United States, probably because too many people would have to stop getting rich if the old apple-cart was upset.

One writer commented "It may be that business owners profited by having multiple races in competition for limited numbers of jobs. If so, the boobs are stuck with a multiracial mess that these businessmen started over 300 years ago, and from which they profited until enough of their spoiled, Harvard-educated kids decided it was 'immoral' just a few decades ago. In any event, part of the latter's program is a Newspeak that makes frank discussions of race impossible, and results in media lies and establishment hypocrisy on a scale undreamt of by the yellowest journalists of the last century."

The media -- or, more properly, the ethnic establishment which controls them -- are far more passionately multiracialist than was the old-money elite which was frankly divided on the issue.

That part of the old elite which wanted multiracialism wanted it only as a way to get rich. The new elite uses multiracialism, including the college-educated dupes who "believe" in it, as a way to destroy all obstacles to their complete power over the Earth -- and the genocide by amalgamation of the European and other races is one of their most ardent desires.

Some of the old-money elite probably had convinced themselves that any harm to the race caused by their importation of stoop labor was far-off, minimal, and correctable. But the new elite has made a religion out of multiracialism, a religion in which actions which tend to racial preservation are defined as "evil," and actions which tend to racial destruction are defined as "good."

No people with such an inverted "morality" will long survive on Earth.

People who throw away their own independence and freedom lose the ability to control their government. And soon it is no longer their government any more. It becomes just an association of self-interested liars who extract the highest price possible for whatever betrayal they can get away with and still retain the favor of the media. And that is how nations fall, ladies and gentlemen.

I love my people. I don't want to see White America die. I don't want to see the White West die. I don't want to see the uniquely noble and beautiful race which brought us everything from grey-eyed Athena to the Saturn V rocket go extinct, whether the genocide occurs by "legally" forced "integration" or by mass killings. That's wrong, if anything is wrong.

And don't kid yourself -- that's where we are headed, at a little more than 10 per cent. of the Earth's population and falling fast, and with the elite purposely importing hundreds of millions of non-Europeans into our territories and using their media to promote a fallacious "morality" in which opposing our genocide is somehow "evil."

If the spotted owl deserves a territory of its own where its survival as a genetic type is assured, then so does the European race.

It is clear to me that Blacks, Mestizos, Asians, and others, not being as soft in the brain on this topic as the befuddled Whites, identify openly with their respective races, and form organizations almost without number to advance their interests (a fact which is easily verifiable by a glance at the Encyclopedia of Associations). When Whites do this, in most countries in the West, they are vilified by the billionaire media elites, when they are not actually arrested or killed.

But White men and women, even those who are as multiracialist as you can get without actually being off your rocker, keep moving away from the Brown Tide.

You can find them all over the Pacific Northwest, refugees from what used to be California. They will sometimes tell you in cautious, looking-over-the-shoulder tones, about how "crime" or "crowding" made southern California "unlivable." A very few will dispense with the code words, but most cannot.

They are obeying their feelings, deep feelings among the men and women of our race, feelings that call for open space and green fields and splashing water, and the piping sounds and bright faces of White children playing in the glen; not unlike the scenes that must have filled the countryside while the Parthenon was being raised on a hill in Hellas long ago.

Our people instinctively want freedom and independence. We want -- and we desperately need -- a place for ourselves, a place where the government belongs to us and us alone, a place where our children can be safe and where no other group's interests will come before their interests, a place where the power is in our own hands, a place where our culture, our science, our music, our art, our dreams will be allowed to live and develop as Nature intended, without deformation or interference from others. On this Independence Day 2006, please share these ideas with your family and friends. Maybe next month you can attend a National Vanguard meeting and meet other White families who share your concerns and your values. I hope you do. We need to support each other. We need our own media that never stop broadcasting the message that we want our independence back. That's what we're working for every day at National Vanguard.

We White Americans stand at a threshold. We are still the overwhelming majority in this country. But we're falling fast. We have a very brief window of opportunity in which we can get our independence back and restore our freedom. That window of opportunity is called your life, because you're living right now. And I'm living right now. Let's get together and do something positive -- right now.

We can have a clean, orderly, progressive, safe, and incomparably richer and more beautiful nation if it becomes a proud White nation again.

To do that we must begin by restoring White community and White racial consciousness among our people. We at National Vanguard are doing that by building world-beating new media for Whites and by getting out on the street and meeting our neighbors and showing them what we're all about.

We're going to help our people. We're going to educate our people. We're going to come up with creative ways to awaken our people. We're going to create publications that will be like nothing ever seen before in the cause of White awakening. We're going to do what it takes.

Be a part of what we're doing. Join National Vanguard today. For further information on National Vanguard, write to Post Office Box 5145, Charlottesville VA 22905, or visit and click on the "join" link at the top of the page. We appreciate your support.

Until next week, this is Kevin Alfred Strom reminding you of the words of Richard Berkeley Cotten: Freedom is not free; free men are not equal; and equal men are not free.
