The Man Who Would Be King
With Richard Butler and William Pierce dead and Matt Hale serving a long prison term, David Duke is without a doubt the most well-known and influential white supremacist in America. Duke recently held a meeting in New Orleans to which he invited representatives of America’s major white power groups. At the meeting, he tried to establish himself as a uniter within the movement, and push a plan of increasing racial awareness in the U.S. through the use of the democratic process. This of course means turning down the violent rhetoric and dropping some of the more radical social plans Duke once advocated. Duke might have more luck with this than one might first think, as many white Americans have shown themselves to be partial to racist candidates, so long as said candidates conceal their policies behind a veneer of mainstream conservatism.
Shaun Walker, leader of what’s left of the National Alliance, has published an essay reassuring his members that the group will remain true to it’s ideological principals, and not join Duke’s move towards serious participation in the democratic process. Instead, it will attempt to convert white Americans to the racist cause by using violent revolutionary rhetoric, and suggest that the man they should most emulate is…Adolph Hitler. Good luck with that, guys.
