A guest article for Divine Truth Ministries by Mr. Karl Nerger.
There can be no doubt that accusations of “racist” and “anti-Semite” are no longer effective tools of repudiation with a majority of Americans. The election of Donald Trump can be an empirical manifestation of this fact. The impact of the Alt Right was so effective in the presidential campaign, that Hillary Clinton even dedicated a speech toward her disdain and scapegoating of the Alt Right. I have noticed in my conversations with random strangers that when I bring up matters of race and diversity that more often than not people tacitly verbalize views that are similar to my own. Nevertheless, the fear of job loss and public ostracism continue to be real threats to open pro-white views. “Respectable” conservatives will still go out of their way to stridently denounce the likes of David Duke and Jared Taylor in public discourse. And while most people will complain about the double standards of affirmative action and forced inclusion, they will not go as far as expressing directly pro-white views. So how do we as white nationalists who are looking for allies channel the individual’s recognition that whites are being short-changed in society into an effective counter action?
My suggestion is through short Surveys designed to simultaneously access a random person’s opinions and suggest a course of action vis-à-vis with ours. A Survey is a rather brief, direct solicitation of one’s opinions that is standardized for comparison and allows for a number of anonymous responses without threat of retaliation or rebuttal. The Survey should begin with questions about race relations generally, progress toward opinions about specific examples of anti-white discrimination (affirmative action and “fair” housing laws), and conclude with the impact on their future and the future of their children. Finally, they would be read a list of “example” courses of action that they could take in order to counter the current programme including specific examples of working with others (read working with us). In working through a progression of increasingly divisive questions, most people are less likely to avoid the more specific questions because of answering more general questions previously.
Below is a sample Survey:
- Are race relations in America:
a. Getting better
b. Getting worse
(If answer b., continue)
2. In thinking about people affecting race relations, are those people primarily white people, or people of color?
(if answer is people of color, continue)
3. When thinking about the kind of community your children will grow up in, are you:
a. Very concerned
b. Somewhat concerned
c. Not concerned
(if answer is very concerned, continue)
- When thinking about actions you plan to take to protect your children from problems associated with race or diversity, which of the following are actions you find acceptable:
a. Any action is wrong
b. Putting them in private school
c. Educating them about the complexities of race relations
d. Encouraging them to move to a safe community
e. Moving to a safe community yourself
f. Coordinating with friends to form safer communities
g. Joining a legal group to work together toward safe communities
(answers d-g indicate that further cooperation with them is possible)
This is simply an example of a Survey- additional questions between those listed above could allow for the appearance of greater inter-connectedness and a smoother progression if you find it necessary. You could use your Survey to accost strangers at places such as gas stations, outside of Wal-marts, on street corners, shopping malls, etc. It would be best if you knew the clerk at a gas station or shopping area and could discuss the solicitation of a Survey during their work times previously. If you don’t know anyone working at a convenience store, then a first step might be to try to develop a relationship with such a person. I have gathered petition signatures in the past and I was able to obtain numerous signatures in Wal-mart parking lots when I only solicited people who were leaving Wal-mart (as opposed to those going in) because most people aren’t so motivated that they would bother going back inside to tattle rather than just leaving in their car. However, it is easy to tattle when one is already heading inside the Wal-mart.
Many people these days are familiar with efforts to solicit their opinions on political ideas so the initial question of, “Hi sir, would you mind taking a very short survey?” would not seem completely bizarre. Assuring the individual that you are only interested in their opinions that they will not be identified by their responses in any way, is likely to generate comfort and more candid responses. Of course, the entire point of the Survey is to identify and connect with individuals who hold pro-white views. If this level of deception prohibits you from engaging in this activity, then I apologize for wasting your time thus far. But for me, my sense of morality excuses the deception because my aim is to help those individuals as well as helping my children. After obtaining his/her cooperation, you could begin your Survey and if the individual indicated at any point that they held anti-white/pro-diversity views, you could politely discontinue the Survey and thank them for their time. However, if the individual persistently indicated opinions in agreement that anti-white bias exists and that they are concerned with the bias’ impact on their future, the Surveyor could make some attempt to develop the interviewee’s opinions into actual future action of “working with others” at the conclusion of the Survey. This development could be as simple as giving some sort of card, literature, or meeting group invitation, or as intricate as offering some sort of “Free meal” at a local restaurant as a reward for Completing the Survey (this would cost you some money). You could then meet with the individual(s) privately in an effort to further discuss their endorsements of further action. Any attempt to recruit others to work with us will take some level of risk, and we individually bear the risk. People could answer deceptively and discover your attempt to identify “normies” who are closet white nationalists. But I think with the Survey approach, most people will not answer deceptively because they will not know your intentions and will want their views to be represented in the majority of a Survey. They might be curious to observe you in speaking with other interviewees but, depending on how much time you have, you could discontinue Surveys until you are not observed. I hope this will serve as a primer for further action. Developing means of connecting with a greater audience has been a goal for white nationalists since its inception and we must be flexible and creative in our ongoing efforts.
