From the Abyss

An Analysis of European Mankind’s Existential Crisis and a Plan for Our Salvation

Paper delivered by Dr. David Duke at the Europe and Russia: New Perspectives Conference in Moscow, July 18, 2007

In this paper I will outline the most significant threats to European Mankind’s existence and then propose paths to our salvation.



The Abyss


It is only fitting that we gather in the largest populated city of European Mankind on Earth. The masses of our beautiful people that we see on the streets of Moscow in some ways give us hope. In other ways, the endless passing by of bright eyes and fair complexions may blind our own eyes to the dark danger facing our people. Walking on the streets of Moscow one would think our race is not in crisis. But, indeed we are in the gravest danger of our long existence.


European Mankind faces the abyss of biological oblivion. Every White nation on earth has catastrophically low White birthrates. Worldwide, people of European descent have a birthrate of only 1.2 children for every two potential parents. That means a greater than forty percent decline in population with each generation — and that doesn’t even consider the factor of racial intermarriage with non-Europeans, which also effectively reduces the birth rate of the European genotype.


Genocidal birthrates, combined with massive non-European immigration into White nations, ensure that unless a revolution for our survival occurs soon in the White world, our people will be only outnumbered, scattered remnants in just a few short generations — vastly outnumbered even in our own nations and close to the edge of extinction.


It must be emphasized that I am not referring here to the extinction of many of our cultural, social, governmental and religious forms, which will also certainly result from this scenario, but more importantly the literal extinction of our heritage from the earth.


Some of the determining Factors of the declining birthrate are:


1. Destruction of the family unit along with promotion of abortion and collective birth control.


2. Mainstream promotion of pornography, sexual promiscuity and sexual deviance resulting in health-damaging and sterility-causing STD’s.

3. Promotion of non-reproductive, unhealthy and destructive sexual lifestyles, such as homosexuality and celibacy.

4. Widespread use of alcohol and illicit drugs, causing the degeneration of tens of millions of our people.

5. Radical feminist promotion of careerism accompanied by hostility to motherhood, as well as agitation of sexual conflict and competition between the sexes. These factors are exacerbated by economic factors that force women from motherhood and the home and into the workplace.

6. Massive non-European immigration into White nations resulting in economic pressure on European families as well as crime and other social problems that suppress the psychological underpinning of a healthy White birthrate. How often have you heard from Europeans the refrain of, “Who wants to bring a child into this messed-up world?

7. Increased racial intermarriage with non-Europeans.


By themselves, any of these problems — on a limited and short term basis do not have to be catastrophic. Historically populations have waxed and waned from a number of factors. But when a population wane is combined with a massive invasion of non-European immigration into European homelands, Europeans face a life threatening crisis.

The non-White world continues to have robust birthrates, and the most populated nation on earth, China, has 1.3 billion people. It is a nation effectively all-Chinese, with a government openly dedicated to the Chinese people, history, culture, tradition, and interests. It judiciously guards its borders and defends Chinese identity and destiny. One can also compare the negative birthrates of Christians and non-religious Europeans to the prodigious birthrate of the Muslim world.


When accompanied by massive immigration, catastrophic birthrates amount to nothing short of the ethnic cleansing of Europeans in their own homelands. This genocide is not done with the sharp crack of rifle shots or exploding bombs, but genocide it certainly is; for if it is not stopped, this quiet gene-o-cide has exactly the same end result for our people as more conventional forms of genocide: existential death.


The Cause of our Crisis

What has happened to European mankind over the last century has not been a phenomenon arising naturally from the soul or spirit of our people. In fact, such self destructive behavior does not arise naturally from any people. Remember: at the turn of the last century our people were robust, expansionist, self-confident, prolific in reproduction and self-conscious of their racial identity and destiny. Compare that with more recent signs of self-hatred found in our people.


In 1998, former U.S. President Bill Clinton addressed the graduating students at Portland State University. When he told the students that Whites would soon be a minority in America, spontaneous applause erupted. There are few examples in world history where a people have cheered their own destruction.

This crowd cheered their own destruction because they have been bathed in anti-European propaganda in media, politics and academia. The authors of this propaganda resemble a surreptitious alien invader as perhaps a science fiction film would portray. Non-Europeans dedicated to an anti-European agenda have infiltrated and gained control of the nexus of our people’s central nervous system: the media. Along with their control of this most powerful institution, these invaders have been also been able to place their own kind at critical junctions and levers of political, social, and economic power. From these positions of power, they have promoted every possible policy toxic to the survival of European Mankind. They have taught us to hate ourselves, to cheer at our own demise, and to smile at our own children’s grim future. And at the same time, they have taught us to love them, these the invaders and destroyers of our race. In some quarters, they even have convinced many of our own people to worship these destroyers as the agents of God himself, the chosen people if you will.



Of all issues important to the participants here, the immigration issue is the key issue for most of you. As you can see by the documentation in my book Jewish Supremacism, a non-European, Jewish minority has been at the forefront in changing immigration laws in the United States and Europe, indeed, in every nation of the White world. Jewish organizations and Jewish financial, political and media power lead the transformation of America and Europe into non-European nations. There is no serious argument about this fact, for Jewish extremists even boast about their destruction of our heritage. Earl Raab, executive director of the Perlmutter Institute of Jewish Advocacy, an associate of the ADL (Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith) and writer for the San Francisco Jewish Bulletin, [1] wrote the following:


It was only after World War II that immigration law was drastically changed… In one of the first pieces of evidence of its political coming-of-age, the Jewish community has a leadership role in effecting those changes.


Raab goes on to celebrate the coming minority status of Whites in America.

The Census Bureau has just reported that about half of the American population will soon be non-white or non-European. And they will all be American citizens. We have tipped beyond the point where a Nazi-Aryan party will be able to prevail in this country.


My friends, our gates have not been battered down from the outside; they have been opened from the inside. Sen. Jacob Javits, one of the invaders who was a long time leader of the effort for open borders in the U.S. Senate, expressed their agenda clearly in the title of an article he wrote for the New York Times Magazine: “Let’s Open Our Gates.” Javits, though, wasn’t writing about the gates of the nation where his true loyalty rested: Israel. He, of course, supported Israel’s strict “Jews only” immigration laws. He was for opening America’s Gates, not Israel’s. (Javits, J. (1951). “Let’s Open Our Gates.New York Times Magazine. July 8. p.8, 33.)


Long before America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand “opened their gates”, Jewish academia and media relentlessly laid the groundwork for our genocide. Until their dramatically increased influence of the early 20th Century, European Mankind was clearly on the upward path. Anthropology was not only a science that recognized race, it was considered by the leading anthropologists of the day as the science of race. Almost every European nation adopted severe restrictionist immigration laws to protect the heritage of its people. Most European nations even enacted eugenics laws meant to help maintain the genetic quality and health of its population.


Today, after over a century of egalitarian brainwashing, to speak of one’s genetic quality evokes a sinister response in the hearts and minds of most of our people, whereas most people in the 1930’s considered it normal and healthy to discuss our people’s biological destiny. Nowadays a college professor can talk about maintaining the purity and genetic line of his pet Cocker Spaniel, but if he expressed public concern about the precious genetic makeup of his own children and grandchildren, he would become a pariah in academia.


The racial egalitarian movement was founded by Jewish immigrant Franz Boas, who had surrounded himself with a number of Jewish disciples including Gene Weltfish, Isador Chein, Melville Herskovits, Otto Klineberg, and Ashley Montagu. Montagu’s real name, by the way, was Israel Ehrenberg, and he wrote the media — and academia — popularized bible of egalitarianism called Race: Man’s Most Dangerous Myth, which basically informed we White people that we don’t really exist, and that there no real difference exists between the races of mankind. Doesn’t it feel good to know that there is no real difference between us here and the Hottentots or the Australian aborigines? No real difference between Mozart and Puff Daddy or Beethoven and Snoop Doggy Dog. Franz Boaz, his followers, and a cheerleading Jewish media laid the foundation of the racial propaganda that has led us to this crisis.


Unfortunately, the Jewish legacy of racial egalitarianism did not end with Boas. The leading modern gurus of egalitarianism are of the same heritage. Stephen Rose, Richard Lewontin, Leon Kamin, Jared Diamond and the late Stephen Jay Gould are, of course, five self-acknowledged Jews, and they also just happen to be the leading academic proponents of egalitarianism.


It is not just the egalitarianism movement that these extremist Jews have led. Every aspect of our existential crisis has a clear, non-European authorship. The Modern movements of egalitarianism, Freudianism, feminism, communism, multiculturalism, the promotion of sexual deviance and degeneracy, open immigration, abortion, race-mixing, zero population growth — every one of them has a foundational and dominating leadership that is not European. I repeat: not European.


These egalitarians are nothing more than con men, and they secretly don’t believe a shred of the lies they preach to the goyim. For instance, the preeminent proponent of the “race is a myth” hokum is Jared Diamond. Diamond, writing in a recent Natural History [2] magazine article, says that genetic studies prove that Jews differ genetically from non-Jews. He makes this startling assertion:


There are also practical reasons for interest in Jewish genes. The state of Israel has been going to much expense to support immigration and job retraining of Jews who were persecuted minorities in other countries. That immediately poses the problem of defining who is a Jew.


Diamond says that there are no real differences between the major races of mankind, between an African Hutu say and a Blond Russian, but there are clear genetic differences between Jews and non-Jews. Diamond says how wonderful it is that Israel will now be able to genetically identify Jews so that it can effectively enforce genetically-based racially exclusive immigration laws!
In the destruction of the family, one personality towers over the rest. He is, of course, Sigmund Freud. He was the first major voice in the West that trashed the institution of marriage and elevated gratuitous sex into sort of a religion. Made into an icon by the Jewish-influenced media, he actually wrote that he considered himself of alien race with a mission to destroy European morality by destroying the values foundations laid by the Christian church. All I must do is to quote him for you directly [3]:


Hannibal. . . had been the favourite hero of my later school days. . . . I began to understand for the first time what it meant to belong to an alien race . . . the figure of the semitic general rose still higher in my esteem. To my youthful mind Hannibal and Rome symbolized the conflict between the tenacity of Jewry and the organisation of the Catholic Church . . .


Freud makes his Jewish supremacist viewpoint very clear in a letter to a Jewish woman who thought to conceive a child by a Gentile, Freud wrote to her about the “superior Jewish race” and urged her only to conceive a Jewish child. Freud writes:


I am, as you know, cured of the last shred of my predilection for the Aryan cause, and would like to take it that if the child turned out to be a boy he will develop into a stalwart Zionist. He or she must be dark in any case, no more towheads. Let us banish all these will-o’-the-wisps!


Freud’s legacy has continued with the mainstreaming of pornography. Professor Nathan Abrams, writing in the Winter 2004 issue of The Jewish Quarterly, in an article titled “Triple Exthnics,” literally boasts about the preeminent Jewish role in transforming pornography to mainstream culture in the United States and Europe. He also quotes leading Jewish pornographers revealing their motivations. Quote:


Is there a deeper reason, beyond the mere financial, as to why Jews in particular have become involved in porn? Goldstein, the publisher of Screw, said “The only reason that Jews are in pornography is that we think that Christ sucks. Catholicism sucks. We don’t believe in authoritarianism.”


Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture and, as it penetrates to the very heart of the American mainstream (and is no doubt consumed by those very same WASPs), its subversive character becomes more charged… Extending the subversive thesis, Jewish involvement in the X-rated industry can be seen as a proverbial two fingers to the entire WASP establishment in America . . .


Abrams, writing in a Jewish journal for a presumably Jewish audience, writes matter-of-factly about the “atavistic hatred” against us by Jewish pornographers and their motivation to “weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion.”


Jewish involvement in porn, by this argument, is the result of an atavistic hatred of Christian authority: they are trying to weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion. Astyr remembers having:


to run or fight for it in grammar school because I was a Jew. It could very well be that part of my porn career is an ‘up yours’ to these people.” …


Goldstein goes on to write:

Jews were also at the vanguard of the sexual revolution of the 1960s. Wilhelm Reich, Herbert Marcuse and Paul Goodman replaced Marx, Trotsky and Lenin as required revolutionary reading Pacheco was one Jewish porn star who read Reich’s intellectual marriage of Freud and Marx

why are we ashamed of the Jewish role in the porn industry? We might not like it, but the Jewish role in this field has been significant and it is about time it was written about seriously.


Now I must address a topic it pains me to discuss: the white slave trade — the horrible degradation and tragic loss of tens of millions of White women, including many women from here in Moscow, across Russia and across Eastern Europe. Is there anyone here at this conference or anyone anywhere in the White World not aware that this abominable trade is centered in Israel and led by their brethren from New York to Los Angeles, Vladivostok to Dublin? In a New York Times News Service article on January 11, 1998, titled “Slave traders Lure Slavic Women,” Michael Specter identifies these millions of unimaginably degraded victims as mostly eastern European young women and he documents their masters to be Jews. He quotes an Israeli White slave master, Jacob Golan:


The women who work there, like nearly all prostitutes in Israel, are Russian; their boss is not.

“Israelis love Russian girls,” said Jacob Golan. . . . “They are blond and good looking and different from us,” he said, chuckling.


Specter points out that millions of Eastern European women have been brutalized in this Jewish criminal racket. That’s right: I said millions. Isn’t it amazing that there are those in our ranks who condemn some of us for even identifying the evil creatures who kidnap, enslave, rape and degrade our women in perhaps one of the most cruel and inhuman practices in the history of mankind? In his book Prostitution and Prejudice, [6] [7] Jewish historian Edward Bristow writes about how the world Jewish prostitution network enslaving European women has operated not just for decades but for centuries.


We forever hear about collective guilt of Germans and Eastern Europeans against Jews; but, how much do you hear about this disgusting, massive violation of the most sacred of human rights? These atrocities against our women and girls are going on right now, even as I speak.


Speaking of ethnic crimes, we are in Moscow, just a kilometer from here are some of the homes of some of the greatest mass murderers of all time. They killed millions of good Russian and other European peoples.

Solzhenitsyn, one of the greatest men of our age, now assigned to almost a non-entity by the controlled media, reveals the identity of the Bolshevik mass murderers of the Russian people. Pictured on page 79 of the Gulag Archipelago II  [8] are the leading administrators of the Gulag, the greatest killing machine in the history of the world. They are Aron Solts, Yakov Rappoport, Lazar Kogan, Matvei Berman, Genrikh Yagoda, and Naftaly Frenkel. All six are Jews. Why is the biggest Holocaust in the history of mankind, by any measure, kept from the livid consciousness of the White world?



In the early days of the women’s rights movement, much of the motivation was restoration of the ancient European values of respect and honor toward women. They wanted men to be more responsible to the welfare of women and children; they sought a higher moral standard and were the main forces behind the temperance movement around the world. Jewish radical feminists, with the help of their Jewish fifth column in the media, became the premier leaders of the modern “radical Feminist Movement.Bella Abzug, Betty Friedan, and Gloria Steinem set the opposite tone. Where before women’s rights leaders wanted women to show an example of honorable and moral behavior, the new feminists told women that they wouldn’t be liberated until they adopted the worst character traits of men. No longer would they urge men to act morally — they now would encourage young women to be just as immoral as the sleaziest man.

Of course, this Jewish radical feminist poison has struck down millions of White women and girls with epidemic venereal diseases, mass sterility, and the vast increase of extramarital affairs and the resulting destruction of stable marriages. The radical feminists also expressed an animus toward marriage and motherhood and a preached to women that career superseded family and children. My friends, without children, our people clearly die.


The four most important leaders of radical feminism since the Second World War have been Betty Friedan, Bella Abzug, Gloria Steinem, and Gloria Allred. Here is a quote from the publication, Jewish Women and the Feminist Revolution.


. . . Jewish feminists influenced every aspect of American life. Below are a few examples from the Jewish Women and the Feminist Revolution exhibit of Jewish feminists who made their mark in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. Their stories will form the background for our discussion. . . .

It goes on to list many of the Jewish stars of radical feminism


Heather Booth: abortion rights and civil rights activist

Susan Brownmiller: author of Against Our Will, a groundbreaking book about rape

Blu Greenberg: Orthodox feminist

Phyllis Chesler: pioneer in the field of psychology of women

Judy Chicago: feminist visual artist

Sonia Pressman Fuentes: feminist lawyer and a founder of NOW

Nancy Miriam Hawley: women’s health activist

Alix Kates Shulman: feminist writer, author of egalitarian marriage agreement

Gloria Steinem: a founder of Ms. magazine; feminist speaker and writer



Homosexuality obviously results in the lowering of our birthrates. Its peculiar sexual character also leads to a plethora of diseases that go beyond the boundaries of normal STD’s. Hepatitis and HIV are propagated by the peculiar unhygienic biological and social behavior of homosexuality. Millions of Europeans who have succumbed to homosexual behavior have died, and hundreds of thousands of non-homosexuals have fallen victim to these homosexually spread scourges from blood transfusions and other factors. In addition, male homosexuals have been much more highly represented in the molestation of children. Millions of White lives have been severely damaged from such victimization. Of course, the media never fail to tell us that that homosexuality is a perfectly acceptable lifestyle and that if we dare to oppose it we are simply homophobes deprived of the benefits of buggery.
Again, as you might have guessed, the invaders are not simply present in the leading pro-Homosexual organizations — they are absolutely dominant:


Larry Kramer — co-founder of “Act Up,” a homosexual/AIDS activist organization; co-founder of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis

Alan Klein — co-founder of group ACT UP, co-founder of group Queer Nation, National Communications Director and chief spokesperson for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation [GLAAD]. Klein also co-founded the successful multimedia campaign STUPIDLY.COM

Arnie Kantrowitz — co-founder of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation [GLAAD].

Jonathan D. Katz — founded and chairs the Harvey Milk Institute, the largest queer studies institute in the world. A long time queer political activist, was a co-founder of Queer Nation, [the key San Francisco branch].

Harvey Fierstein — film actor [Mrs. Doubtfire]; well-known gay activist.

Moisés Kaufman — playwright and film director [The Laramie Project].

Israel Fishman — founder of the Gay Liberation Caucus in 1970 [now known as the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgendered Round Table of the American Library Association], the world’s first gay professional organization.

Bella Abzug and Edward Koch — both Jewish — the first members of the U.S. House of Representatives to introduce legislation banning discrimination based on sexual orientation [1974]. More in the Appendix.


Pro-Abortion Movement

The abortion of millions of Europeans certainly has had an impact on our catastrophic birthrates. Contrast the opposition to abortion by almost all major Christian churches to the active promotion of abortion by the most powerful of Jewish organizations. The following leading Jewish organizations advocate for abortion “rights”:


* American Jewish Committee;

* American Jewish Congress;

* B’nai B’rith Women;

* Central Conference of American Rabbis [Reform];

* Federation of Reconstructionist Congregations;

* Hadassah Women;

* Jewish Labor Committee;

* Na’amat USA;

* National Federation of Temple Sisterhoods [Reform];

* National Council of Jewish Women;

* New Jewish Agenda;

* North American Temple Youth;

* Rabbinical Assembly;

* Union of American Hebrew Congregations [Reform];

* United Synagogues of America [Conservative];

* Women’s League for Conservative Judaism.


To quote a prominent author on the abortion Movement:


… people who identify themselves as ‘Jews’ have led and do lead the abortion movement, not only in the United States, but all over the world… In the late 1960s, pro-life activists observed that the abortion ‘rights’ movement was primarily motivated and led by people who called themselves Jews. About half of all abortionists and abortion clinic owners. identified themselves as Jewish, which was far out of proportion with the Jewish population, which made up less than 2 percent of the United States population.

I am not referring to simply a significant Jewish over representation in these movements which damage European peoples. In every one of these movements, Jews constitute the greatest single ethnic entity, the driving force behind these toxins against our survival. And all of these Jewish-led destructive movements were enormously aided by their brethren’s domination of the Western World’s entertainment, publishing, broadcast and news media.

Jews have been prominent in the drug problem facing every White nation. They not only have had leading role in the organized crime rings importing and selling the drugs, Jewish dominated Hollywood, along with their controlled record industry has popularized body and soul destroying drug use.


Racial mixing has of course been a major theme promoted by Jewish created films, books, plays, even television commercials and ad campaigns. The Jewish media condemns as “racist” any opposition of Europeans to intermarriage, but at the same time never utters a word of condemnation of every major Jewish organization, every one of which has programs whose purpose is to lessen Jewish intermarriage. Israel, of course, is a nation where intermarriage between a Jew and non-Jew is illegal.


Not only do the Jewish-dominated media preach a subtle self-hatred for our people, some Jewish academics even openly call for the destruction of the White race. A prominent Jewish professor at Harvard University, Noel Ignatiev, publishes “Race Traitor” magazine and literally calls for the abolishment and destruction of the White race. Could one imagine the outrage if any Gentile called for the destruction of the Jewish people?


The External versus the Internal Threat

I must emphasize again, that the non-Europeans across the world, whether one speaks of the Muslim masses or the surging Chinese, or of the growing brown and black masses prodigiously breeding around the world —  they have not caused the crisis of survival we now face.


They are not the ones who convinced us to even deny our very existence, to say that race, in fact our own White race, doesn’t even exist. They have not been the ones that have made us hate ourselves, not been the ones who propagandized our children into believing they will solve the world’s problems by intermarrying and breeding the White race out of existence. They have not been the ones who, in Sen. Jacob Javits immortal words, caused us to “open our gates,” but they certainly have surged through our subversion-opened gates like billions of liters of muddy flood water through the slough of a broken dam.

From our earliest beginnings, our European homelands always had the external military threat of invasion by those seeking to drink the honey of European civilization. More than once they penetrated, at least for a short time, to the very heartland of Europe. But, our heroic ancestors repelled them, and no small role in the saving of our race came from the land where we now gather: the land of the Russ.

But, for the last number of centuries, Western technological and military might made external military invasion untenable if not unthinkable. In the midst of our internal genocide, our traditional enemy who controls our media and politics now directs us to spend, fight, hate, and die on foreign battlefields. Does anyone here still believe that this sacrifice in Iraq and the very likely catastrophe of war with Iran would be good for our kith and kin?


As far as the threat of terrorism is concerned, can anyone even imagine a credible terrorist threat in the Europe or America of 1961, when those who fit the “terrorist profile” were so few they could be easily screened and thus society protected. You did not even have to go through a metal detector to board an international flight. But today, of course, it is quite difficult for authorities to watch for a London subway bomber in a station where half of the passengers look like the potential terrorist.


They tell us that we are threatened from foreign-born terrorists, but they are silent about the epidemic non-European crime rates in our own towns and cities. Far more of our people are murdered or injured in our streets by non-European criminals than in Iraq or Afghanistan. They tell us of a quote “terror threat”. Yet, how is it that 13 year old White girls raped by non-European gangs in Stockholm or Lyon do not face terror? Tell me please how it is not “quoteterrorunquote” when an elderly, crippled White woman in Paris is doused with lighter fluid and set afire by an African gang?

They tell us the terrorists want to wipe us out with dirty bombs, but the same tribe sponsors massive immigration which will just as surely wipe us out with “dirty genes” more effective than any dirty bomb. We can rebuild a city after a bomb, but once our race is genetically bombed, it is gone forever; it’s like trying to uncook a boiled soup. They tell us that if we want to secure our existence and that of our children we are haters, and that genocidal policies against our people are the height of human idealism.
Now they focus our fears on Iran and its nuclear energy program. Yet, for years, nations such as Pakistan and China have had nuclear weapons, yet no Chinese leader has lobbed any of them into Vladivostok or Seattle. Nor are they likely to do so, for they know that if they dropped just one nuke on us, our response would leave their nation with not a blade of grass standing. Of course, we need to keep our vigilance, our technology and our power.


There are those who say: don’t blame the Jewish extremists, that we are solely responsible for what has happened, that there is something intrinsically self-destructive in our own people. They are right we are responsible, we are responsible for not stopping their alien takeover of our media and academia. But, those who blame us, how do they explain our incredible record of achievement and power that persisted until the time of this alien takeover of our culture? Didn’t our people create the great new nations of the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand? Didn’t we climb the highest mountains on earth, descend to the darkest depths of the seas, and send our sons even beyond the earth itself, to place European Mankind’s footprints on the yellow dust of the moon? Didn’t we create the transistor and the computer age, unlock the genome, and pave the way to the brink of healing almost any illness that plagues the human body? Don’t tell me about the inherent flaws of our people, for were not our genes there at Thermopylae, at Tours, at the Alamo? No, my comrades, there is nothing inherent in us that has caused this crisis of existence. We have plenty of courage in us, but too many of our people have been poisoned by the toxins of an alien pathogen, and we will never, I repeat, never save our racial body and soul until we defend ourselves from that font of evil.

We have let these enemies of our people’s existence take over our media, mightily influence our governments, and manipulate our economies. We must condemn those among us who still defend this centuries-old enemy that right this moment brings us to the edge of extinction. We must condemn the collaborators of this alien enemy who have told us that our mortal enemies pose no threat to us, that they are friends. Yes, we have had a great flaw, and that flaw has been our not recognizing and dealing with the danger of Jewish supremacism.

We should blame those who let politeness get in the way of our own survival, those who were more interested in telling the truth behind closed doors and being respectable in polite society, than saying openly the things our leaders needed to say for their own children’s survival. Our forebears kept our enemy out of their social clubs even out of their swanky hotels, but they let them take over our very culture and teach our children to hate their parents. We can never solve the individual threats to our nations without addressing the one great threat that was the central source of all the others.


And now, as our people have gone from loss to loss, from fighting only the effects and never the cause, there are those among us, supposedly even comrades in our ranks, who want to condemn those of us who dare to tell the vital truth about those who seek to destroy, who are destroying us with each passing day. There are actually some who call themselves White nationalists who tell us that this same enemy who has killed and enslaved millions of us in the evil Bolshevik Revolution, is now our friend. This is the same enemy who today creates the Hollywood movies that tell us our race is evil and that in repentance we should eradicate our precious genetic heritage by letting our daughters be bred like stray dogs.


For just as the eternal Jewish question was the key issue in the deaths of millions of good Russians, so it is likewise upon the resolution of the Jewish extremist threat that will turn the answer of the ultimate question, “To be or not to be.

When the apologists of Jewish extremism speak of the White race being responsible for our own imminent death, they speak of themselves.
Be sure to understand that I am not suggesting that everyone must speak as frankly as I do. Honestly, I would not wish that on any of you who are not of exceptional strength. For when you stand against the real power, the real evil and malevolence, the real threat to our people, they will unleash the hounds of hell upon you. There are men here who have been in the modern dungeons of our age for simply challenging our occupiers’ myths. One man who comes to mind who has suffered for years at the hands of our enemies, but who has never wavered, never faulted, never given in, who stands as a rock going into his 9th decade, is Manfred Roeder. I salute you. We all salute you, may you live long and always be our inspiration. Dr. Roeder has dared to challenge the new religions of our times, egalitarianism, unassailable Jewish Holiness, and the Holycaust.


So I do not say that everyone must say what Dr. Roeder says; I have more mercy on you than that. Some of you simply cannot say these things from within the bowels of enemy territory. There are many battlefields of this struggle; in war there are many levels of conflict, many operations in which stealth and deception are as important as organization and power. The Mossad’s slogan, “By deception though shalt wage war,” is part of any successful campaign of war. So, not everyone in the movement for European survival and destiny must engage the enemy in a frontal assault, but those who condemn those of us who tell the truth, or who tell our folk the evil lie that our mortal enemy is actually our friend, they are worse than the alien enemy, for they are the sickest creature of war: the traitor who neither God nor man can stomach.


And I must tell all of you here at this conference, as well as those of you listening or reading this anywhere in the world: I do believe nothing is more important than exposing the real power behind the threat to our very existence. I know that we will have no real victories until these enemy aliens are dislodged from their supremacy in the West.


We are in this crisis because a racial war has been waging far longer than the war on terrorism, long before the ancient Asian invasions of Attila, since before the Muslim invasions of the Balkans, since before the Crusades, and even before those same European Crusaders fought the Hebraic invaders incubating in our European enclaves. This war existed before our enemies’ paramount role in creating the climate of hate that resulted in the great gene — and soul — destroying fratricidal wars of the 20th Century — wars that we must never wage again. It has long predated the Israeli-Arab conflict in the Mideast, long predated the insanity of the Iraq War, and it has long predated this agitation for a catastrophic war with Iran.


Over the last century we have been losing the war for our survival because our people have not recognized the true enemy, the internal eternal enemy that has brought us to the edge of destruction. But, slowly, across the White world, men and women of our race are awakening to the real war being waged for our survival. Our war is not in some non-European land; it is at home, at home in Russia and all of Eastern Europe, at home in Germany, at home in France, at home in Britain, at home in Australia, New Zealand, and yes, even at home in Canada and in my own beloved United States. The aliens have such control over my government that they can send my brothers to kill and maim, and be killed or maimed by the thousands in the sands of Iraq. They have brazenly created a war clearly based on lies. A war that steals the hard-earned billions of the American people. They use America’s government as a weapon not only against Iraq, the Palestinians, and the Lebanese, but also today in many ways against the great Russian people. These policies have but one reason, because America is driven by the Jewish extremist agenda.


Some have said America is the great Satan, I argue against that. For , wasn’t Russia, in the days of Jewish Bolshevism called the great Satan to millions of good Russian people? Wasn’t Russia called the great Satan to millions of murdered Eastern Europeans? When present day Germany imprisons men like Manfred Roeder, Germar Rudolf, and Ernst Zundel is not Germany called the Great Satan? I argue that no, it is not Russia, or Germany, or Britain, or France, or America, or any White nation that is the great Satan, it is the Jewish extremist power that drives us all to fratricidal war, and racial annihilation. They even use the U.S. government as a weapon against our own, long-suffering European Americans. Don’t forget that America still has as many White people in its borders as the entire population of Russia. They are your brothers as I am your brother.

As I have told the Palestinians and other peoples in the Mideast, they are not free because the European American is not free; they are not free because the Zionists control their land and their lives. We in the America are not free because the Zionists control the American government and use it in many ways that harm us, “we the people.” And I am painfully aware of the U.S. government’s pernicious effect on Europe both East and West. But let me tell you, the policy of the government has nothing to do with the benefit of the European American people, it is entirely written on behalf of the invaders of America, not the founders of America. I tell the Middle Easterners that their real enemy is not the real Americans, not the real Europeans. For only if our people are truly free, only if we are truly patriotic people will Israel be recognized not as a so-called ally, but as a terrorist nation that has even committed terrorism against the United States itself such as in the Lavon Affair and the attack on the U.S.S. Liberty.


If there is one principle I would convey to this conference, it is this: our war is at home. Our enemy is inside our gates. Stand up against this enemy that has murdered, enslaved, and degraded so many millions of your kith and kin. Free yourself, make yourself strong, and reach out with your strong arms, steel your stout hearts and break the chains shackling your brothers and sisters. Make the world shake with the power of your genes, with your truth and with your will.


The path upward

There are many paths to our empowerment, revolution, racial survival and ultimate destiny. Many of those at this conference represent a particular approach to the problems that confront our people. I suggest that all the approaches are valuable, as I have outlined before, as long as all of us do not condemn those who tell the whole truth. It is one thing to tell part of the truth, knowing that many people can only be enlightened in a step-by-step process. Not only do I expect not everyone in the Pan-European Movement to say what I and others say about the Zionist aspect involved with our racial survival — actually, I am glad they do not, for every aspect of society has to be infiltrated, every social structure, and every cultural, religious, academic institution. It will take many of us being as subtle as we are knowledgeable. I praise and salute many who address only parts of the overall problem. And, of course, I realize as much as anyone that the nature of democratic politics demands real moral sacrifices! Politics is the dirtiest game in town. It is an entity that demands appeal the lowest common denominator, the avoidance of truth to appease blocs. I have never felt so unclean as when engaged in the active political process. Any honest politician, an oxymoron if there ever was one, will say the same thing. Politics is like working in the sewers of academia, and I must tell you that I enjoy lecturing as a man of letters so much more than having to convince the unwashed masses, when I had to genuflect before the superstitions of our times that one must undertake to even get a hearing for the concrete part of your program.

So, I quite understand that many of you must now bow before Caesar and his gods and leave your alms at the temples of popular mythology. The point is this: on the main issues, it is not important that you discuss every aspect of the truth; the important thing is that you don’t cop out on the core beliefs of this Movement. Sometimes being a public spokesman makes you tiptoe through a minefield. Just remember your objective and remember that, if you make just one mistake, you will not make it to the other side.

That being said, here is my prescription for our way back to power and, once with that power, toward our survival and renaissance.


Religious Feeling

Whether or not Western man is part of the organized religious institutions, he is awash in religious feeling. Even the atheist White man is religious about his lack of belief. Reason is the machinery of geometry and mathematics, but religious feeling is the spirituality that turns geometry into a magnificent Gothic cathedral, or that transforms mathematical equations in music to the surreal beauty of a Beethoven symphony. In the end, it will not be reason that will save us. No man rides into battle solely on reason; he does so out of passion, love, anger, and emotion. Dostoyevsky said beauty will save us, and what is beauty to Western man but a religious feeling? Passion at this late hour is all that can save us, the passion that will be required to make great sacrifices and to create the tools and psychological weapons necessary for the Cause to succeed. You will note I said “psychological,” because today, in an age of high-speed mass communication, never has it been truer that the pen is mightier than the sword.

So, in all of your work, bring out the passion. Those of you who will make videos: don’t just educate with facts and reason — touch the heart. I mean really touch it. The same is true for those who write and speak: don’t simply educate — motivate, inspire, enlighten, envision, create, and evoke the heart and the passion in our people.


In your organizations, create tradition, music, ritual, brotherhood, community, love and spirit. You are not some debating society or political club; you must be a movement in every sense of the word. In addition to political and racial theory and data, create in each other devotion to our people and to this Movement as its salvation. An equal share of an organization’s time must be to help and improve the lives of every fellow member. Remember that the state revolution we seek starts with a revolution within the heart and mind of each of us. It starts with us in our own life, in our own habits, in the way we live. We are all somewhat reflective of the non-healthy, alien media and culture to which we have been subjected since birth. We all are locked in a constant struggle whether we will control ourselves or whether we let the toxic drugs of media-borne degeneration enslave us. We must, in a sense, purify ourselves and empower ourselves and our highest attributes if we are to be successful in awakening and recreating our society. These internal tasks are as important as the outreach efforts we use to awaken our people.


Our beliefs are compatible to any truly Western religion. Our forefathers in the Christian church found them so, as can we if we so choose. Only in the last hundred years of the Church has the greatest damage been done. As I said earlier: we were on the path toward a great destiny in the early part of the last century, and most of the organized churches, some grudgingly and some enthusiastically, were going along. Now, of course, the organized institutions have been taken over for the most part by the enemies of our people, and interestingly enough, some of the Christian churches are controlled by the greatest enemies of Christ himself. Perhaps the most profound exception to this is the still relatively healthy Orthodox Church in Russia.

Whether you are Christian or not, involve yourself in an organizations of a religious nature, and let our fundamental beliefs be nourished in it, and use the spiritual setting to share our vision with others. People are in churches and organized religions because they want to be spiritually healthy and morally righteous. It is because they have a social conscience. Obviously we are spiritually healthy and have a social conscience, so it is our task to communicate that and spread what we represent in any institution in which we participate. Even more importantly, create your own organizations of religious feeling.


There will also be spiritual orders of a religious nature that will arise in this last great battle for the existence of our people. These need to flourish, and grow and build on their traditions and structure. No political-style organization should be without its spiritual order. From these holy orders across the White world will evolve a spiritual/religious belief system that will propel our Movement in every area of the struggle.


Ideological Strength

Whatever your task in the Movement:

Learn the fundamentals of race and race science.

Learn the fundamental aspects of the Jewish Question.

Immerse yourself in the highest ideals of our people. Immerse yourself in the beauty, art, culture, heritage, and history of our folk, and live your life consonant with what you want for our race as whole. Fall into a deep and abiding love with our people that can sustain you through persecution, disappointment and hardship. Even death has no hold on our spirits, for they will be carried in the hearts of those of us who shall carry on come what may.


Personal Achievement

Steel your body, develop your mind, strengthen your will and ennoble your spirit.

To whatever group you belong, be an example of a person of honor, strength, character, ability, responsibility, and achievement.

Be the best to your ability in school, sport, and career.


Commitment to the Movement

Every day, take some action to forward the Cause.

Materially and financially support individuals and organizations that lead the fight around the world. If millions can give 10 percent to a church in times of peace, surely each of us can give 20 percent to the Movement in this time of war and consequence. If a Muslim can pray six times a day, surely we can take action once a day for our people’s survival.



Develop computer and other technical skills.

The computer and Internet revolution give us untold possibilities to awaken our people all over the world and to build our Movement. The day will come when every White person on earth will simply be one click away. Develop your computer skills and utilize this tool to reach, educate, convert, organize and motivate thousands of our people in your own nation and all over the world.

Develop an expert level of expertise in a particular area for the Movement that most attracts you.


Some possibilities are:



Music is the pathway to the soul and spirit of our people, and composition, performance, mixing, recording, singing are all possibilities. Create works of musical art that can awaken, motivate, and empower our people.



Learn to write in a convincing and effective way, and then use both print and electronic media to get your material to those of our race across the globe.


Website creation and maintenance

Learn to create powerful, interactive Websites and other Internet methods to bring an effective message to millions.



Become an expert at the creation of Flash technology and other means of powerful multimedia.


Films and Documentaries

Become versed in state of the art Filmmaking and editing. Modern computer science enables us to create powerful state of the art documentaries for a very low financial commitment, but a high commitment in study and practice. Create documentaries that will be so powerful that they will from their own energy be passed from person to person across the breadth of our whole race.


The White man is awakening. It is the task of all here at the conference, and all those listening to these words around the world, to speed it along with all the ability you can muster.

In this the city — the city with the greatest number of White people on Earth — I urge you to rededicate yourself to making this movement more than something that you simply support. Make it something that you live. Make it the ultimate meaning and purpose of your life.

If everyone hearing the sound of my voice, or reading these words will help transform this Movement into something of great beauty and power, we shall climb up from this abyss of death, and someday ascend to the heaven’s farthest star.
