by Joseph Tommasi [from National Socialist Liberation Front, 1974]
Winning the hearts and minds of the people takes intense organizing activity and a willingness on the part of the people to get involved and be organized. Both at this time do not exist.
Since a mass movement cannot be “pulled off” in America because of the anti-mass movement nature of the American people (which stems from their ever-growing apathy), the only recourse for National Socialist Revolutionaries is to go underground and build their own armed struggle to wage war against the State.
National Socialist activities have never produced one significant political result in the U.S.A. Any mob resistance our people have ever been engaged in has always been spontaneous eruption (like Boston) with the participation and agitation of no political party or National Socialist activist. They did it themselves and without our help.
Organizationally, the movement has failed to exploit the opportunities available to create “mass” mob violence against the enemy, even when such opportunities have lingered on. Publicity stunts have always supplanted effective political action.
There has been no arming the students, no burning of school busses except by mobs totally disconnected with National Socialism, no organization of mass violent demonstrations, and no effort to communicate with the people and provide the necessary National Socialist political leadership to gain direct National Socialist successes.
In Boston, contrary to claims of the old Party, the people rejected the Party and if anything desired help from the Ku Klux Klan, an embarrassment for the Party. This situation occurred because of a complete lack of proper leadership and leadership activity on the part of the Party.
The Party with their stagnant Prussian tactics were incapable of identifying with the revolutionary youth. Special propaganda and mass organizing did not occur. Just a few stunts. for the newspapers and no solutions for the problems of the people.
As National Socialist Revolutionaries we must always keep in mind that nothing we do against the System can ever be conceived as “adventuristic”. Militant struggle is the key to heightening contradictions. It not only strikes concrete blows against the State but also builds revolutionary consciousness among those involved in the struggle, which is what must happen before we can attempt to build our outside power bases from which to operate while building a popular base of support.
Building a popular base of support will become more and more of a necessity and an easier goal to achieve as conditions in the country become worse and worse.
Our greatest weakness is our belief in our weakness. We have to communicate to all National Socialist Revolutionaries our strength and to show them our strength we have to show them the strength of fighting. We must build confidence within the entire movement before we can hope to help people and lead those people in revolution.
That confidence must be based on the idea that as National Socialist Revolutionaries we cannot be stopped by anyone: the System; the Reds; or the Reaction! This confidence must project the image and reality that only confrontation politics, force and violence, can change the anti-White actions of our enemies.
Only by fighting by any means necessary will we be able to effect political change. We cannot effect political change by projecting a phony, bureaucratic, Prussian image and constantly spouting unrealistic daydreams, such as imagining the masses would ever wish to emulate Stormtroopers. It just won’t happen.
All revolutions, the actual assumption of power, are instigated by the efforts of a tiny few. Those who could possibly participate in such a revolution among the White people in America are not like those who participated in past European struggles. Americans tend to go against the “grain” on practically anything. We are not Europeans and won’t respond as Europeans.
If a revolution occurs in America it will most likely be a violent one sparked by one lone incident and not by a prepared dialogue of political euphemisms. Until that one lone incident occurs, White people will never flock to the voting booths to place their physical support to the direction of helmeted Stormtroopers. They will instead continue to play the present Republican and Democrat party politics no matter how bad things get simply because of their complete apathy towards getting involved with their neighbors’ problems. They don’t recognize those problems as their own.
The old Party could not offer any proof of their ability to provide solutions to the problems facing the country, especially when the Party had only one or two real leaders. With such a situation, how could the Party make claims of having the answer? Their past performances give no guiding light at this time.
The National Socialist Liberation Front (NSLF) believes that it is necessary to begin development of an armed struggle immediately. We now understand the futility of maintaining the fight for social change within the framework of civil debate. Instead of trying to educate and organize people who don’t see it our way, we write them off as enemies and neutralizers of the National Socialist Revolution. This has marked the ascendancy of the purely militant point of view in NSLF thinking.
We now confine our outreach to the small group of movement people we consider potentially militant National Socialist Revolutionaries. The NSLF feels that since these National Socialists already know that the System “sucks”, all they need is a revolutionary example in order to move into armed struggle themselves. The NSLF will lead these National Socialists through a series of rigidly defined steps, from the lowest levels of armed struggle to the highest levels.
The levels are determined by the violence of the weapons used. Rocks and “trashing” are on one level, molotov cocktails are higher and bombs are higher still. The highest level is, of course, guns. This tactic of levels includes no political guidelines or flexibility and almost completely disregards mass participation. Levels are defined solely in terms of the weapons used. A mass action involving hundreds using only rocks is defined as a lower level of struggle than a bombing carried out by a few.
Leadership in the struggle has to do with making things happen. Leadership is the people who are doing it, cutting through diversionary debate, smashing forms and familiarities that hold us back, and through developing and acting on a clear line of how we move to win, redefining the context, content, and meaning of the National Socialist movement and the Revolution. That’s what we call SEIZING THE TIME!
NSLF is building an underground army. We must spread our efforts to trouble spots in the country, exploiting racially troubled areas and establishing bases of support. At these times we will continue to fan the fires as long as we can, using this chaos to launch armed attacks against the enemy.
Since our militance is obviously going to lead to a military confrontation (probably with the U.S. Army that is growing ever Blacker), maybe not for the next few years, then the fact that most of the Movement has no consistency of armaments makes us fools. So we must build internally during the new few months. Therefore we should state publicly that we believe in, support, and are preparing for armed struggle; For that is what we must win to effect political change.
In times of revolution, just wars and wars of liberation, we must love the angels of destruction and disorder [as opposed to conservatism and law-and-order.] To hell with all those who block the Revolution with rhetoric – revolutionary rhetoric or counter-revolutionary rhetoric! We will not make our most eloquent statement in courtrooms and at press conferences, but in the streets of Jew-Capitalist America!
The choice of weapons belongs to him who moves; and NSLF moves into the streets and we have made our choice of weapons and tactics.
The weapon of criticism will never equal the criticism of weapons. NSLF prefers a paralyzed enemy to a well-criticized one.
Those who can’t stand the sight of blood, especially their own, should stay home and pray for those who come outside the master’s rules to “move”, to DO IT, and pray for victory and not an end to the slaughter. Pray for us to succeed far if we do succeed you will be safe. If we don’t, then kiss the baby good-bye.
