Forgotten History - Mark Webb
Another forgotten history. This one on the theme of WWII cover-ups, there's no finer collection of incidents swept under the carpet than in Australia. Over one million US troops, aircrew, seamen and marines were stationed/based in Oz at some point or other during the war. Including 100,000 black US troops. They brought big changes to Australian life. Over 12,000 Aussie women had married US servicemen by the end of the war and American culture had entered Australia permanently. In order not to give the Japanese negative stories that would be turned into anti-US propaganda, most of these events I'm going to write about, that took place between 1943 and 1944, were just covered up.
March 1942 Brisbane, for ten nights there was fighting (often with knives) between the all white US 208th Regiment and the all black 394th Regiment. The cause was the issue of black men being in the company of white women.
In May 1942 an all black US labour regiment were tasked with building an airstrip and buildings, called Kelso Airfield, at Townsville, North Queensland. They staged an armed mutiny. They had been sleeping on the ground, not receiving proper rations, not paid, refused leave, treated badly by white officers and could not do the work they had been tasked to do, as the equipment they required had not been delivered. A black Sgt was beaten by white officers. The next day, on the 22nd, six hundred men took up arms, they machine gunned the white officer's tents, set fire to the ammo dump, and took the white officers as hostages. A short siege was in effect. The Australian Army was called in and they surrounded the base, sandbagged the roads and deployed Bren gun carriers. The following day some two hundred black soldiers were missing having gone AWOL. US congressman LB Johnson (later to become US President) flew out to assess the situation.. It was said that the missing soldiers were rounded up and the regiment shipped back to the US. The building of the airfield was abandoned. The fate of the ringleaders is very hazy. It was stated by several sources that they were executed. Regardless, the entire incident was covered up. Details only came out in 2012.
September - October 1942, in Inkerman a US soldier shoots and kills an Australian soldier in a gunfight and was in turn shot dead by other Aussie troops. An Aussie civilian was shot and killed by US military police in Townsville. Reports of knife fights between black US troops and white US troops in Brisbane over the issue of black men dancing with white women. The incidents of March flared up again. Reports of Australian police and US military police firing on and killing black US troops. One Aussie soldier is knifed to death and three other Aussia soldiers and a local woman are also stabbed by a US soldier who went on a rampage. It is reported that there are over twenty brawls a night in Brisbane. A group of American submariners and US Navy shore patrols are beaten and badly mauled by a mob of Aussie locals in Brisbane. There was also a race riot in Wacoi, a suburb of Brisbane.
November 1942. The Battle of Brisbane, two days and nights of rioting and fighting between US military police, Australian troops and civilians and US troops. In the morning an Australian trooper was attacked by a US military policeman who was then attacked by Australian troops, resulting in one Aussie soldier shot dead by US military police, and half a dozen shot and wounded. The American PX and American Red Cross buildings both looted and burned to the ground, hundreds of people on all sides injured and wounded. Unconfirmed reports of US soldiers killed by Australians, eye witnesses reported seeing them beaten to death. They also reported at least one US soldier was shot and killed by an Australian citizen. Unconfirmed reports of civilian deaths. None of this was reported at the time. Later, war correspondent John Hinde who saw the events from a hotel balcony said that: "The most furious battles I ever saw during the war was that night in Brisbane. It was like a civil war."
December 1942. Melbourne anti-US riots. Few details of this incident.
February 1943. The Bondi anti-US riots, very few details of that incident. Second Melbourne anti-US riots saw 3,500 American and Australian troops and civilians in an all out brawl, further riots in Fitsroy and Shepperton quickly followed.
November 1943. The sinking of the US troopship USAT Cape San Juan off the coast of Fiji. An all black US regiment travelling from San Francisco to Townsville, to replace those troops that mutinied in May 1942, Japanese submarine 1-21 slams a torpedo into her and she sinks. Many of the men are in the water or on rafts when a massive school of Oceanic White Tipped sharks ripped them to pieces. 1,462 men went into the water, only 448 came out. Totally hushed up.
January 1944. The Perth anti-US riots, very few details on this incident.
April 1944. The Freemantle anti-US riots in which two New Zealand servicemen were killed by US troops outside the National Hotel.
August 1944. The Cowra Breakout, which I will cover in detail in a later article.
As you can see it was not all friends and allies working together! The wartime period was marked by race hate, boiling resentment, poor treatment and the feeling by Australians that they were being occupied by a foreign army. 99% of what happened was censored, made to 'go away' and left out of the news.
A rebellious faction refuses to wear face masks during the current pandemic. Medical advice is that masks help to prevent the spread of the virus, but the refuseniks will not be dictated to by the government. They claim it's their right as free citizens to be infected and to infect others. And they attempt to back up their arguments with ridiculous conspiracy theories.
This is the old argument between those of us who respect authority and those that reject it. If the anti-authoritarians really believe in total freedom they should go and live in the woods, drink water from a stream, and defecate behind a tree. That's the only way that they can avoid paying taxes, obeying the law, and wearing face masks.
The vast majority of us value the protection of the police, the fire brigade and the ambulance service, and we don't object to paying taxes and complying with emergency measures. We know that civilisation depends on our respect for others and we dismiss the selfish arguments of the so-called libertarians.
This gulf between responsible citizenship and anarchy is most obvious in the United States where the freedom junkies carry guns, and object to state funded health care for the poor. They believe in privatising everything and reducing the power of the state. The logical conclusion of their twisted thinking would be a return to the wild west, when everyone was armed and the poor simply died of starvation.
There are seven billion people living on our planet. In order to feed, educate, and look after them we need good government at all levels. International co-operation is necessary to regulate trade between nations and to prevent border disputes leading to wars. Aggressive nationalism and excessive individualism have no place in the modern world. Nations and individuals cant just do as they please.
I used to know a merchant seaman who went on a drinking spree in Leningrad, now St Petersburg, in 1959. He tried to leave the bar without paying and found himself in front of a Soviet judge, who sentenced him to five years imprisonment for 'hooliganism'. As luck would have it, British prime minister Harold Macmillan was visiting the USSR, and as a gesture of friendship Nikita Khruschev freed a number of British prisoners, including our man, who has behaved himself ever since.
The Death of Democracy
The Coronavirus pandemic has killed thousands of people, damaged the economy, and helped to put an end to democracy. It's impossible to hold a public meeting because of social distancing regulations, and it's almost impossible to make use of the Internet if your opinions fall outside the narrow confines of political correctness. Many browsers block access to political groups that are labelled 'far-right'. And if you do manage to reach such a website you run the risk of being prosecuted for 'hate crimes'.
It's allowed to call for an end to immigration but its illegal to specifically call for an end to non-European immigration. That would constitute discrimination against non-Europeans and could lead to a heavy fine or imprisonment. Those groups still campaigning against non-European immigration are in constant danger of being shut down.
Zionism is another minefield. Any criticism of Israel is likely to be interpreted as 'anti-Semitism'. The recent trouble in the UK Labour Party was the result of some members of the Party supporting the Palestinians. Even Jews who protested against Israeli aggression were threatened. The Tory press, the BBC, and most of the mass media are pro-Zionists. That's not conspiracy theory, if you look up who owns the mass media you will find that they are all Zionists, not necessarily Jews but Zionists all the same. You may think that Zionism is harmless but it's really Jewish supremacism, based on the ridiculous idea that the Jews are God's chosen people.
It's perfectly reasonable for black and brown people to join the police force. They are part of the population and it's only fair that they are represented. But the police go too far when officers take part in political demonstrations such as 'taking the knee' at Black Lives Matter demonstrations. All lives matter, not just black lives. The BLM movement is racist by implication and should suffer the same constraints as 'far-right'.
We are facing a major recession as the result of the pandemic and our decision to declare UDI from Europe. (For those too young to remember, UDI was the Unilateral Declaration of Independence, Ian Smith's brave attempt to maintain white rule in Rhodesia). With millions unemployed and hungry the liberal consensus will be abandoned as we stop worrying about alleged insults to minorities to concentrate on our very survival.
JFK's Letter to Ben-Gurion
The American presidential election has brought forth pledges of loyalty to Israel from both candidates. But this was not always the case. President John F Kennedy sent the following letter to Israeli prime minister David Ben-Gurion in May 1963. Unfortunately, JFK was assassinated six months later and every American president since, except for Jimmy Carter, has turned a blind eye to Israel's nuclear arsenal.
Dear Mr Prime Minister
I welcome your letter of May 12 and I am giving it careful study.
Meanwhile, I have recieved from Ambassador Barbour a report of his conversation with you on May 14 regarding the arrangements for visiting the Dimona reactor. I should like to add some personal comments on that subject.
I am sure that you will agree that there is no more urgent business for the whole world than the control of nuclear weapons. We both recognized this when we talked together two years ago, and I emphasized it again when I met with Mrs Meir just after Christmas. The danger is in the proliferation of nuclear weapons systems are so obvious that I am sure I need not repeat them here.
It is because of our preoccupation with this problem that my Government has sought to arrange with you for periodic visits to Dimona. When we spoke together in May 1961 you said that we might make whatever use we wished of the information resulting from the first visit of American scientists to Dimona and that you would agree to further visits by neutrals as well. I has assumed from Mrs Meir's comments that there would be no problem between us on this.
We are concerned with the disturbing effects on world stability which would accompany the development of a nuclear weapons capability by Israel. I cannot imagine that the Arabs would refrain from turning to the Soviet Union for assistance if Israel were to develop a nuclear weapons capability - with all the conseuences this would hold. But the problem is much larger than its impact on the Middle East. Development of a nuclear weapons capability by Israel would almost certainly lead other larger countries, that have so far refrained from such development to feel that they must follow suit.
As I made clear in my press conference of May 8, we have a deep commitment to the security of Israel. In addition this country supports Israel in a wide variety of other ways which are well known to both of us. (4-1/2 lines of source text not declassified)
I can well appreciate your concern for developments in the UAR. But I see no present or imminent nuclear threat to Israel from there. I am assured that our intelligence on this uestion is good and that the Egyptians do not presently have any installation comparable to Dimona, nor any facilities potentially capable of nuclear weapons production. But of course, if you have information that would support a contrary conclusion, I should like to receive it from you through Ambassador Barbour. We have the capacity to check it.
I trust this message will convey the sense of urgency and the perspective in which I view your Government's early assent to the proposal first put to you by Ambassador Barbour on April 2.
Sincerely, John F Kennedy

Living in the Past
Every generation is critical of its children but we continue to make progress. In 1933 the Oxford Union debating society voted by 275 votes to 153 for the motion: "This House will under no circumstances fight for its King and Country." Questions were asked in the House of Commons and the newspapers condemned the motion, but when the war came our young people did fight, as bravely as their fathers had fought in WW1. And those that survived went on to have children of their own that became the Hippy generation, with flowers in their hair. But fashions do not influence DNA and their potential was undiminished.
The Daily Telegraph is obsessed with the idea that we are becoming a nation of illiterates, either as a result of “liberal” teaching methods, or because of a general decline in intelligence. It’s true that some kids leave school unable to read and write but that has always been the case. Some have psychological problems and others are mentally deficient. But the majority of school leavers have sufficient education to go to university or take apprenticeships. Of course, the older generation thinks that standards have diminished, but they have always held this view. Things were always better in ‘the good old days.’The East Asian nations dominate the educational league tables but the UK is in the second group of nations, between Australia and Germany. Our educational system generally provides the graduates needed for British industry. It’s true that we import some skilled workers but we also export them. Things could always be better but they are not nearly as bad as the Old Guard would have us believe.
Please use the facility at the end of this blog to leave your comments and see what others have to say. But don't post ad hominem attacks, we are interested in ideas not personalities.

The UK is borrowing so much money that the average person cannot comprehend it. We can understand the average house price which is a quarter of a million pounds in London, but anything above that figure is 'telephone numbers'. It was bad enough thinking in millions but we are now trying to think in billions and trillions. The human brain can't handle such vast sums, we just know that it's an awful lot of money.
The government has to spend billions of pounds to keep millions of workers on the dole during the recession. This particular recession was prompted by the Coronavirus pandemic but they happen every twenty or thirty years. Every time that the working man starts to enjoy a decent standard of living along comes a recession to put him back in his place.
The financial system used to rely on wars to keep things going but that is too risky now that we have nuclear weapons, Much better to shake things up with a good recession; inefficient firms are eliminated, wages are pegged back, and borrowing knows no bounds.

So far, attempts to change the system have all ended in failure. The Jacobins thought that land was the key, but their revolution was washed away in a sea of blood. The massed ranks of reaction formed themselves into a coalition led by Britain to destroy liberty.
The Americans defied the madness of King George only to be recolonised by capitalism. And they fought a civil war to abolish slavery but then sold themselves to the moneylenders.
The Russian Revolution was really a coup by the middle class. The Imperial Guard was renamed the Red Army, the Imperial Bank became the State Bank, and when Bolshevism collapsed seventy years later the Russian Orthodox Church emerged intact, as though nothing had happened.
The National Socialist German Workers' Party fought for "freedom and for bread", but they abandoned socialism on the Night of the Long Knives in 1934 to run a conventional economy based on bond sales, rearmament, and confiscation.
John Tyndall - The Eleventh Hour
John Tyndall (1934-2005) started writing 'The Eleventh Hour' in Wormwood Scrubs prison in 1988 and finished it ten years later. He never used fewer words than he considered necessary so it runs to 549 pages.
There are few laughs in this book but one passage made me chuckle. When he did his national service in the army he was issued with a military driving permit which he swapped for a civilian licence on demobilisation. Soon afterwards he gave me a lift in Andrew Fountaine's Land Rover from our meeting place at Earls Court to my mother's house at Mitcham. He drove so furiously that I was glad when we got there. I always wondered where he got his licence from and now I know.
He covers his early political career, without dwelling on the unfortunate Francoise Dior affair. In fact, most of the book is taken up with his idea of 'Economic Nationalism'.
This turns out to be protectionism plus a revival of 'Imperial Preference'. He mentions the Ottowa Conference of 1932 but he doesn't accept that even then the dominions were going their own way and were not prepared to abandon industrialisation for the benefit of the Motherland. He envisaged a customs union comprised of Britain and the old dominions, but the trade figures don't support such a scheme.
Last year Australia exported 36% of her produce to China, 17% to Japan, 7.3 % to South Korea, 5% to India, and just 1.5% to the UK. Her main exports are iron ore, coal, gas, and gold.
Canada exported 76% to the USA, 3.9% to China, 2.1 to Japan, 1.2 to Mexico, and 1% to Germany. The UK is not even listed. Canada's main exports are cars, aircraft, aluminium, iron ore, gold, and copper.
New Zealand exported 24.3% to China, 15.4 to Australia, 9.54 to the USA, 2.73 to the UK, and 1.84 to Germany. Her main exports are dairy products, sheep, and timber.
The UK cannot provide a big enough market for the old dominions, we are no longer a major manufacturing nation and we don't need what they produce. We could import more New Zealand lamb and butter but that would damage our own producers.
Throughout his book John Tyndall refers to the 'British race'. Of course, he knew perfectly well that we Brits are Europeans. We are not a separate species of mankind ordained by the Almighty to rule over lesser breeds. But one suspects that is exactly what he believed.
If this book had been written just after the war we might have taken it seriously. In those days we churned out cars and motorcycles for the Commonwealth, and it would still have been possible to repatriate a few thousand West Indians who had been recruited by London Transport. But it was written almost fifty years later when we had drastically reduced our manufacturing industry and lacked the means, let alone the will, to round up millions of Blacks and Asians.
Mass migration from the Third World has affected most developed countries. The declining birth rates of Western countries resulted in labour shortages that economic refugees are eager to fill. But John Tyndall didn't accept this explanation. He believed in a conspiracy to undermine the white race in general and the British in particular:
"For, make no mistake about it, the darkening of our country is not taking place by accident. I have spoken in an earlier chapter of the existence of conspiratorial forces behind recent national and international events. Nowhere is the circumstantial evidence of this greater than in the case of the drive to eliminate the traditional racial character of the British Nation.
Those governing this nation in the post-1945 period have had clearly before them the long and unhappy historical panorama of the negro problem in America, and all the obvious warnings that it offers to other nations that might be contemplating setting out on the same road. To believe that the decision to open the gates of Britain to mass coloured immigration was made in ignorance of, and with eyes closed to, this tragic example is to extend the frontiers of human credulity beyond all logic."
John Tyndall lived in the past. He was like a character from one of Kipling's ripping tales of Empire, a gentleman and a patriot who defended the flag against the savage foe. John Maynard Keynes said that when things change he changes his mind, but John Tyndall clung to his beliefs to the bitter end.
His plans for a revived Empire and the mass deportation of immigrants are far-fetched and so is his solution to the Northern Ireland problem. He devoted an entire chapter to Northern Ireland before reaching his conclusion:
"Britain. if she is to be true to herself, could only consent to a United Ireland if it were a British Ireland - if it were achieved, not by Ulster leaving the Kingdom and joining the Republic, but by that part of Ireland now known as the Republic abandoning her separate existence and rejoining the United Kingdom."

Striking a Balance
(This article was posted in Nation Revisited # 10, June 2006. At that time the British National Party was doing well under their leader Nick Griffin (pictured), but things were soon to change).
Lies and Statistics
Mark Twain said that there are lies, damned lies, and statistics. The Coronavirus pandemic has proved him right. President Trump is congratulating himself on containing the virus when America had just about the worst outbreak in the world. The best result was achieved by Kim Jong-Il who kept North Korea completely free of the virus. Our own bumbling prime minister changed his mind daily as experts bombarded him with advice. Eventually, he fought the pandemic by throwing money at it.
People only know what they are told, even in a democracy. We were told that face masks were useless until that advice was reversed and we were told that they were essential.
When the Axis forces surrendered to General Alexander in Tunisia in May 1943, no less than 275,000 men were taken prisoners of war. But there wasn't a word about it in the German newspapers.
News can be supressed and statistics can be made to mean whatever you like. In 1985 the doctors in Israel went on a four month strike in protest at their contracts. Because only doctors can sign death certificates it appeared that nobody died in Israel during those four months. So, statistically, the healthiest country to live in is one without doctors.
It's a similar situation with crime figures in the UK. The government has cut the police force to the bone and closed most of the police stations. If you try to report a crime by phone you are put in a queue until a robotic voice tells you to visit the police website. Because it's almost impossible to report a crime the figures are coming down nicely. In fact, they prove that we are better off with less cops.
Telling lies used to be a sin but it's now an industry. The mass media broadcasts mendacious nonsense day and night to eager recipients. Everyone has got a phone in his pocket to keep him in touch with the latest news. How much better informed we are than our parents and grandparents who had to read the morning papers to find out how many German ships we had sunk and how many aircraft we had shot down. At least, they knew that it was true because it had been verified by the Ministry of Information.
Governments of all persuasions tell lies. Bill Clinton was no exception but he did force the American military to share Satnav with the general public. We only remember him for the Monica Lewinski affair but he did mankind a great service by making Satnav available. He only denied having sex with Monica because fellatio doesn't count in Arkansas. The American public forgave him but they never showed any mercy to Richard Nixon and they are yet to judge Donald Trump.

Boris Johnson's sudden hostility to China has got little to do with Hong Kong, it's just another example of our slavish support for American foreign policy. Donald Trump has started a trade war with China to boost his election chances. Nobody seriously challenges China's right to administer Hong Kong. The fact that the city was once a British colony is neither here nor there. Half of the world was part of the British Empire but we don't interfere in India or Africa because we once ruled over them.
China is accused of human right abuses but so are many of our trade partners, including Israel, and Saudi Arabia. We manage to live with the occupation of Palestine and the bombing of Yemen but we are worried about Hong Kong.
Huawei was set to provide the UK with 5G technology at a price that would have given us an advantage over our competitors. But Boris Johnson has used a combination of 'Yellow Peril' racism and paranoia to scupper the deal.
Chinese companies are building nuclear power stations for us but we are worried about their smartphones. The Huawei decision is a blatant case of American trade domination; they want to sell their technology to a captive market and their lickspittles in the UK are supporting them.
And this is the government that promised the punters that they would "take back control" of our economy.
We should be building our own power stations and 5G systems, but we have not invested in technology to the same extent as China. Our economy is not as big as theirs and we have not been able to keep up, If we make a serious effort to train our own scientists we will be able to compete with China in the future. But in the meantime, there's nothing wrong with buying their technology.
The security angle is a red herring. China has got satellites circling the globe to spy on the West. They have also got thousands of Chinese takeaways reporting back to Beijing. They don't need our phones to help them.
All Lives Matter
The liberals preach White Guilt as firmly as the Catholic Church preaches Original Sin. We are supposed to feel guilty for having had an empire. But when the British Empire was at its peak my grandmother went to school in Bermondsey with no shoes on her feet. The upper class made lots of money by exploiting black and brown people but the working class were as poor and hungry as any coolie. We have absolutely no reason to feel guilty and it's time that we stopped.
Slavery was awful but it was not exclusively a white man's business. Europeans bought slaves in Africa from Arab slave traders who bought them from black Africans. They were shipped across the Atlantic to work as field labourers, picking cotton or cutting sugar cane. Their lives were miserable but no worst than the poor whites in Europe who worked under terrible conditions in mines and factories.
We didn't have many black slaves in the UK because they had to be fed and housed but poor whites worked for tokens and fended for themselves. We like to think that slavery was abolished out of Christian charity but it was really because it was cheaper to employ poor whites.
The killing of unarmed suspects by the police must be stopped, but the 'Black Lives Matter' movement is wrong to concentrate on black deaths. All lives matter, black and white.
People with parents of different colours used to be called 'half-castes' but that term has been replaced by 'mixed race'. We used to say they had 'a touch of the tar brush', but that nautical phrase is no longer heard. The way we used to talk was insensitive but the current obsession with race is just as bad.
Some of the new rules are confusing. One can say 'people of colour' but not 'coloured people'. 'Nigger' has always been offensive but it's used by some black people, particularly rappers.
The various names that we used to call gays; 'Nancy Boys', 'Poofs' and 'Queers' are no longer acceptable, but one of their favourite pubs 'The Royal Vauxhall Tavern' is still known to the locals as 'The Shirt Lifters' Arms.
The latest minority group to be celebrated are transsexuals. They are a tiny minority in any country but their cause has been taken up by the usual suspects. Enthusiastic social workers with warped minds are asking little children if they are happy being boys and girls. The sex change operation was popularly known as a 'strapadictomy' when it involved women wanting to become men, but nowadays we call it 'gender reassignment'.
The best way to tell if words are kosher is to read the newspapers and watch TV. The BBC strictly enforces a policy of word censorship. They no longer make their newscasters wear dinner jackets but they insist on political correctness. MacDonald Hobley (pictured) used to grace our screens with sartorial elegance in the Sixties but today's newscasters are a different breed.
We post links to friendly websites on a reciprocal basis, but we do not necessarily agree with them.
Who is Responsible?
Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Home Secretary Priti Patel make all the right noises when it comes to law and order. They say that violent protestors will be prosecuted, but the police are committed to a liberal agenda. They stand and watch while criminals equipped with ropes and tools bring down statues and desecrate war memorials.
High-ranking police officers dripping with gold braid appear on our television screens to congratulate themselves. Far from apologising for their performance, they praise those officers who 'took the knee'; a political gesture that should not be allowed in a non-political police force.
The police do a dangerous and thankless job but they do themselves no favours by running away from rampaging hooligans, ignoring organised gangs of child abusers, or allowing the open sale and use of drugs. These are political decisions made by senior officers, but who exactly is responsible?
Laws are made by Parliament. It's the duty of the police to enforce laws not to question them. It might be politically expedient to turn a blind eye to lawbreaking but that is not what we pay them for. If we are to be governed by the police we might as well abolish Parliament.

I received the following e-mail.
I am a young Nationalist patriot who is deeply concerned about the state of Britain and the white race. I have looked at several nationalist organisations, however, they either seem to be full of Hitler worshipping freaks and misfits, or watery populists who have given up on any attempt to save our country from Multiracialism, instead promoting some kind of ersatz anti-Islam, non-racial "patriotism". However, I have recently come across your blog and have found it a refreshing change from the standard nationalist groups.
My ideology is basically racial nationalism combined with a socialist economic policy (though not National Socialism). I do not believe in racial superiority, rather racial difference which must be defended from race mixing. I also do not believe in any conspiracy theories trying to implicate Jews for the decline of the White race or some kind of "World Conspiracy". I am interested in your support for Mosley's "Europe a Nation". Whilst I supported Brexit and am opposed to the current European Union, I am not against close co-operation with our White European neighbours. Unlike some so-called "nationalists", I do not have anything against white immigrants to Britain, as they differ only in nationality, in terms of race they are our kinfolk.
Is Nation Revisited confined to a blog for the time being, or will you be engaging in any political activity in the future? I would be interested in learning more about your organisation. Yours faithfully William.
I replied that at 75 years of age I would not be starting a new party and advised him to join an existing one. But how could I recommend any of them? Britain First has attracted publicity but for all the wrong reasons. They specialise in bigotry, threatening behaviour, and coming last at elections. Now their leader, Paul Golding, is accused of beating his former deputy Jayda Fransen. She has now fled Britain First to form her own party.
The so-called far-right has had its share of thugs and psychopaths over the years. All of them were convinced that they should be running the country, but none of them succeeded and their dictatorial ambitions were never realised.
From British Nationalist to National Socialist - Eddy Morrison
In 1967 I joined the National Front, then recently formed, and started to learn about British Nationalism This meant to me, Britain First and being proud of British heritage and our now dead Empire, now replaced by a multi-racial Commonwealth which is just a bad joke.
Amongst the literature given to me when I started out on my over three decades activism in the White Nationalist Movement (by this I mean the White Nationalist groups in the UK) was a collection from the then NF Leeds leader, Phil Stone. Phil, unfortunately, is no longer with us, after many years of failing health he died in Tenerife a few years ago.
However, Phil had been a member of the first BNP (led by John Bean) and was also friendly with many of Colin Jordan's National Socialist Movement comrades. Amongst the wealth of material (much of it now lost or "borrowed") was a stack of National Socialist material from the National So cialist White Peoples' Party (formerly the American Nazi Party), and at that time led by George Lincoln Rockwell.
Rockwell was murdered by a former ANP member and National Bolshevik on August 25th 1967 and so I missed any opportunity of ever meeting him. But his magazines and articles - especially Stormtrooper, the Rockwell Report and more particularly National Socialist World - gave me pause to reflect that perhaps British Nationalism, confined by fake international barriers, did not fulfill my long tern philosophical needs. My ideological development into a National Socialist and a radical rather than the pale flag waving Populists I had been, took a few years. During that time I was speaking at many meetings on a regular basis and involved in mostly NF activities about five time a week - but cooking slowly in the back of my mind were Rockwell's and Hitler's teachings - for by that time I had read and absorbed "Mein Kampf" too,
The NF, riven as it was by Populist splits, was still controlled by ex-National Socialist Movement / Greater Britain Movement members for when the GBM united with the NF in 1968, John Tyndall, Martin Webster, Denis Pirie, Dave Pascoe and many other highly energetic National Socialists entered the Front. Through their deeper commitment to an ideology far stronger than mere "plastic patriotism" of the rightist Tory variety, they taught me more of the creed of Blood and Soil and how the battle was a worldwide one.
I was happy though to go along with the general opinion and hide my newly found National Socialism under a welter of patriotic jingoism because that was what the Front wanted and I felt happy that the NF was in safe NS hands under Tyndall.
However, I did try a number of other experiments with much more "direct action" groups - leaving the NF for short periods for the more openly NS British Freedom Movement. I also formed a couple of groups in Leeds - The National Democratic Freedom Movement and the second incarnation of the British National Party. Our direct confrontational tactics against the Marxist scum brought the massive publicity both locally and nationally which Rockwell said it would. It also brought many of us arrests, fines and imprisonment - again as Rockwell had predicted. We felt a sense of martyrdom and sacrifice and attracted so many new young fighting recruits that we soon dwarfed the local NF, which by that time had fallen under the spell of John Kingsley Read's populist faction. "Nazis" weren't welcome any more!
However, in 1976, when Tyndall and Webster took the NF back over and Read formed his short-lived National Party, I felt comfortable dissolving the BNP and merging its 500 or so members back into the NF. The influx of so many National Socialists made for a situation in West Yorkshire where it was a very unhealthy place for a Red to sell papers or hold a meeting. We swept the Reds from the streets and did not let one Commie or anti-fascist meeting go unchallenged. We also for the first time advertised our own PUBLIC meetings and challenged the Reds to come along. The result - more arrests, more jail but masses of publicity including a "World in Action" TV special.
These were the tactics I successfully employed much later for the BNP (before it became sanitised) in Darlington and the following week in Dewsbury - which again made world headlines (1989).
Since then I have made strenuous efforts to streamline the NF that proved fruitless; though I still personally support the NF as the most future effective movement in Britain. I decided I was fed up with hiding my National Socialism (a hopeless and unrewarding task) and formed Aryan Unity - an idea rather than an organisation dedicated to WORLDWIDE National Socialist Unity and Pan-Aryanism.
I define Pan-Aryanism as accepting our worldview that the Aryan folk, spearheaded by Aryan/NS freedom fighters throughout the White world is now our only hope.
So today I can say quite proudly that I am a National Socialist and the days of being a "little Englander" are far behind. I recognise that our ultimate enemy - the coming New World Order in all its various guises and with its tentacles squeezing the lifeblood from our people throughout the world as well as strangling free speech, can only be fought against by an Aryan worldwide effort. I hope that Aryan Unity can play its part in that eternal struggle.
For National Socialists the Second World War did not end in May 1945 - it was just one lost battle amongst many - the struggle for the existence of our people and the preservation of our culture and heritage continues.
