Kevin Alfred Strom – RationalWiki

There is nothing as wonderful as pretty girls, and I suspect that the entire purpose of human existence, or perhaps even of the universe itself is so that they might live.

Kevin Alfred Strom is an American white nationalist and convicted pedophile.[2]

In high school Strom was introduced to the John Birch Society by a teacher. He eventually left as he felt that the organisation did not have enough emphasis on race, and instead became a disciple of the neo-Nazi William Luther Pierce, joining Pierce’s National Alliance.[1]

During the 1980s he ran a pirate radio station, “The Voice of To-Morrow”[3], which had a rather infamous reputation among shortwave radio listeners, i.e. it was met with almost universal dislike for its openly white supremacist programming.[4][5] The format consisted mostly of interviews and commentary from white supremacist activists. During the 1990s he took his radio efforts legal with the show “American Dissident Voices”, sponsored by the National Alliance and carried by whatever shortwave and AM stations were willing to sell them airtime.

William Pierce introduced Strom to Kirsten Kaiser, and the two married in 1990. They had three children, although Strom lost custody of them after reportedly abandoning one on the grounds that they were a “weakling”. The two later divorced.[1]

After Pierce’s death in 2002 Strom and his second wife, Elisha, were amongst the members of the National Alliance who got into a dispute with the leadership and started a split-off organization called the National Vanguard in 2005.[1][2][6]

An anti-semite, Strom has argued that Jews are “dominant and influential in debasing and deceiving white women and girls on such a massive scale” that they cannot be forgiven.[7]

In 2006 Strom’s home was raided and his computer seized; the following year he was arrested on five charges of possession of child pornography. In 2008 he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 23 months.[2][7] The criticism that he received during this period led him to disband the National Vanguard.[1]

Elisha Strom had become estranged from her husband after catching him looking at child porn prior to his arrest. During his trial she commented that he seemed to find the accusation of Neo-Nazism to be more offensive than the accusations of pedophilia.[7]

Journalists Fall for Fake ‘Far Cry 5’ Petition, Bash Video Gamers as Dangerous Racists – Heat Street

A fake petition demanding the cancellation of Far Cry 5 surfaced a few days ago, expressing anger at the games apparent portrayal of white American religious extremists as villains. With fewer than a dozen signatures, no one took notice of the petition, and it wouldve been buried until it was shared in game-journalist circleswhere it blew up and spawned almost two dozen news articles about heh, gamers being racist basement dwellers, just like Hillary Clinton always assumed.

The petition begins with a complaint about Ubisofts multicultural lectures and ragesat preachy games aimed at degenerates and miscegenators. It reads like a parody. Thats because it is.

Posted as an open letter, it calls for the games developer, Ubisoft, to cancel the game or change it to include violence against Muslims and inner city gangs instead of American Christians. It also calls for the developer to change the Montana setting to Canada.

Of course, in the game itself, the bad guys arent Christians at alltheyre cultists, like the Branch Davidians. They even use a symbol inspired by the Church of Scientology. Furthermore, an expanded version of Far Cry 5s rogues gallery includes a black man in what many assumed was a white-nationalist Christian organization.

The obviously fake petition even throws in a mention of GamerGate, the consumer-driven movement for ethics in games journalism, and has a line about the continued rejection of romantic partners when they find out our hobby. Theres even a threat of violent repercussions against Ubisoft should they choose to leave the game unaltered.

To top it off, the author misattributes a quote by neo-Nazi pedophile Kevin Alfred Strom to Voltaire, misspelled as Boltair. Classic.

Its a very stupid hoaxbut its one that allows game journalists to pen ludicrous articles taking the letter at face value, as an example of entitled, and deranged video game players who play too much Call of Duty. The bait is taken and it feeds their narrative.

While several publications noted the possibility that it was a product of trolls, sites like the International Business Times and Digital Trends wasted no time decrying disgruntled gamers with articles that took the petition at face value. GameReactor blamed alt-right nationalists for the post.

On Twitter, video game diversity consultant Tanya DePass wrote a long rant about how the treatment of the petition by game journalists, who used it to mock gamers, were simply not treating it seriously enough.

People keep loling at the line about not being to get laid/dates but fear of violence from rejected dudes is legit, she wrote, and insisted that entitled gamers playing oppression olympics aint never going to be funny to me.

Muslim game developer Rami Ismail says he bookmarked the petition to cite in future arguments. Bookmarking this beauty for when I get told Im being too sensitive & too offended by Muslim antagonists in games, he wrote. Reminder: if you cant tell if something is or isnt satire, it might as well be true, because it is clearly credible.

An obvious hoax is clearly credible because we live in the post-truth age, apparently.

James Paley, who covered the story on Cogconnected,admitted he knew the story was a hoax but published it anyway. Thats something I hoped readers would discover on their own, moments after reading the petition in question, he said.

Writing for Mashable, Adam Rosenberg was no better, and acknowledged the possibility of it being written by a troll, but stated it was worth engaging.

Doubling down on the false narrative, game journalist Susan Arendt attacked people who claimed it was fake. She wrote:

Her tweets were not well-received.

In my opinion this show is perfect for both Bible believers and atheists alike, as whichever your perspective, the evidence offered should prove once and for all, that the Identity interpretation of scripture is correct.

Voltaire and the one-liner – OUPblog (blog)

As we mark Voltaires 323rd birthday though the date of 20 February is problematic, what significance does the great Enlightenment writer have for us now? If I had to be very very short, Id say that Voltaire lives on as a master of the one-liner. He presents us with a paradox. Voltaire wrote a huge amount the definitive edition of his Complete works being produced by the Voltaire Foundation in Oxford will soon be finished, in around 200 volumes. And yet he is really famous for his short sentences. He likes being brief, though as a critic once remarked, Voltaire is interminably brief.

Voltaires most famous work, Candide, is full of telling phrases. If this is the best of all possible worlds, what are the others? asks Candide in Chapter 6. The expression best of all possible worlds comes originally from the philosopher Leibniz, but it is Voltaires repeated use of the phrase in Candide that has made it instantly familiar today. Another saying from the novel was an instant hit with French readers: in Chapter 16, Candide and his manservant Cacambo, travelling in the New World dressed as Jesuits, fall into the hands of cannibals who exclaim triumphantly: Mangeons du jsuite (Lets eat some Jesuit): the Jesuits were highly unpopular in France at this time, and the expression instantly became a catch-phrase.

One French expression from Candide has even become proverbial in English. In 1756, the British lost Minorca to the French, as a result of which Admiral Byng was court-martialled and executed. Voltaire has fun with this in Chapter 23:

And why kill this admiral? Because he didnt kill enough people, Candide was told. He gave battle to a French admiral, and it has been found that he wasnt close enough. But, said Candide, the French admiral was just as far away from the English admiral as he was from him! Unquestionably, came the reply. But in this country it is considered a good thing to kill an admiral from time to time, pour encourager les autres.

Voltaires other writings are equally full of pithy and memorable short sentences, which often help him drive home a point, such as this, from his Questions sur lEncyclopdie: Lespce humaine est la seule qui sache quelle doit mourir (The human species is unique in knowing it must die).

Other lines, like this one from his poem about luxury, Le Mondain, Le superflu, chose trs ncessaire (The superfluous, a very necessary thing) are all the more memorable for being in verse. Voltaires facility for producing snappy phrases is even there in his private correspondence, as this letter to his friend Damilaville (1 April 1766): Quand la populace se mle de raisonner, tout est perdu(When the masses get involved in reasoning, everything is lost).

And one phrase that still resonates with us comes from a private notebook that Voltaire surely never intended to publish: Dieu nest pas pour les gros bataillons, mais pour ceux qui tirent le mieux (God is on the side not of the heavy battalions, but of the best shots).

Then there are the ones that got away, the one-liners he never actually said misquotations in the parlance of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. Hardly a week passes without a newspaper quoting I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.

Voltaires rallying cry of free speech is central to our modern liberal agenda, so its a bit awkward that he never actually said it. The expression was made up in 1906 by an English woman, biographer E. B. Hall. But she meant well, and we have collectively decided that Voltaire should have said it. Another advantage of Voltaires one-liners is that they provide great marketing copy, and a quick search on the web reveals that many of them are for sale, on t-shirts, shopping-bags, and mugs. I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it is especially popular, in French as well as English which explains my favourite t-shirt: Je me battrai jusqu ma mort pour que vous puissiez citer erronment Voltaire (I will fight to my death so that you can quote Voltaire incorrectly).

Luckily, wit is contagious. There is a famous one-liner in Beaumarchais The Marriage of Figaro, when the servant Figaro imagines addressing his aristocratic master: Vous vous tes donn la peine de natre, et rien de plus (You took the trouble to be born, and nothing more). This has become so celebrated that we have forgotten that Beaumarchais was only improving on a less snappy one-liner he had found in one of Voltaires more obscure comedies. George Bernard Shaw, a self-styled follower of Voltaire, has fun with misattributed sayings in Man and Superman:

Tanner: Let me remind you that Voltaire said that what was too silly to be said could be sung.

Straker: It wasnt Voltaire. It was Bow Mar Shay.

Tanner: I stand corrected: Beaumarchais of course.

And so we go on inventing Voltaire. Another dictum that has recently gained wide currency on the web is this: To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.

Now regularly attributed to Voltaire, this saying seems to originate with something written in 1993 by Kevin Alfred Strom, an American neo-Nazi Holocaust denier, and not a man who obviously exudes Voltairean wit and irony. But once you become an authority, it seems, all sides have a claim on you.

The one-liner can seem a good way of encapsulating a truth: Si Dieu nexistait pas, il faudrait linventer (If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him).

Voltaire knew he was on to a winner with this line, from a poem of 1768 (the Eptre lauteur du livre des trois imposteurs), and he re-used it often in later works. Another much-repeated phrase occurs at the end of Candide. When the characters finally come together, after umpteen trials and tribulations, all argument is silenced with the words Il faut cultiver notre jardin (We must cultivate our garden). Is this a precious nugget of wisdom, neatly encapsulated? Or is it just another Brexit means Brexit, a trite phrase meaning anything and nothing? But that, of course, is another use of the one-liner: to maintain suspense, while bringing down the curtain at the end.

Robin de Ruiter: Banned in France Kevin Alfred Strom

Authors conspiracy book banned in France

by Kevin Alfred Strom

HAVING BEEN THROUGH (and ultimately rejected) the right wing and conservative movements early in my life, I have seen a great many books purporting to expose political or financial conspiracies. Quite a few are worthless. A significant number of these are so ludicrous as to actually serve the cause of those they ostensibly criticize, who may indeed covertly finance the nuttier tomes. A few are indispensable. Many also fall into the category of interesting, though flawed.

(Some fun favorites of mine in the worthless or bogus categories: The militia writer who claimed that most of us would die when the Earth passed through a poison gas belt in 1991, and who thoughtfully offered for sale special gas masks to save us; the prolific Spotlight advertiser who warned us about the giant crack that the Illuminati were going to engineer under the Atlantic Ocean, proved by Bible prophecy; and the 9-11 theorists who claim that there were no terrorists and no jets all was a 3-D holographic projection. I could go on indefinitely.)

In general, I think that its insane to believe that groups especially intensely ethnocentric minorities never conspire; but believing that most of the evils of the world are the work of a master conspiracy is also pathological, in my opinion.

Dutch writer Robin de Ruiters book, Worldwide Evil and Misery, dealing with some of the nefarious actions of the Rothschilds and other financial dynasties, falls into the interesting, though flawed, category. His thesis is that these families, through Zionism and other movements controlled by them, are, under the guise of democracy and free markets, instituting a world government which no one will be able to challenge and from whose jurisdiction no man or woman will be able to escape.

In the course of the book, de Ruiter discusses some subjects that the Jewish/Zionist power structure considers taboo: the Khazar genetic contribution to todays Jewish population (which is real but which I also believe is less than and much less significant than Koestler and de Ruiter assert); the connection and coperation between Zionists and National Socialist Germany; anti-Gentile and anti-Christian passages in the Talmud; the interesting (though mutually exclusive) claims by researchers 1) that about half of Ashkenazi Jews are genetically distinct from all other human populations, except for a small admixture with other Jewish groups (Dr. Richard Villems) and 2) that Jews and Palestinians are genetically indistinguishable (Professor Arnaiz-Villena); and the covert promotion of anti-Jewish pogroms and atrocities by Zionists to encourage Jewish support for, and migration to, Israel.

Thanks to the generosity of the author, you can read the chapters of the book dealing directly with Jews and Zionism free via an online PDF file. The only thing Mr. de Ruiter asks is that those offering the file also show a link to his publishers page.

De Ruiter sees National Socialism more as a facet of Illuminati/Zionist intrigue than as an instrument of German nationalism or European racial-nationalism. This is quite wrong, but connections between the German government of the time and Zionism certainly existed.

De Ruiter is no World War II revisionist: he accepts the 6 million tale uncritically (which is just as unrealistic, I think, as the claims that there were no summary executions of Jews by Germans during the war). But that wasnt enough to save him from legal persecution for stating the truth as he saw it.

In his chapter on Zionism, de Ruiter says If we analyze the roots of Zionism and make amends to the principles of the ideology that lays claim to Palestine, we cross an unwritten line. We have then almost committed a crime, and, before we know it, we appear in court. In order to prevent this I am forced to incorporate all critical quotes in this chapter about Zionism, from erudite Jewish researchers, important Jewish authors and rabbis. Many of them complain about the blurred vision of their own supporters.

When he says that critics of Zionism, before they know it, appear in court, de Ruiter knows whereof he speaks. The French edition of this book, part of the Livre Jaune series, was suppressed in France, although one can still read some of the volumes online, including a large excerpt from the banned book.

According to de Ruiter, he first published the book in Mexico in 1989. But the French-language edition was legally suppressed under the race speech censorship laws in that country the same sorts of laws which are gradually being introduced in the U.S. under the guise of hate crime legislation.

De Ruiter stated in an interview with me: All other ideologies, opinions and ideas can be openly examined, analyzed and criticized. We can happily discuss politics and criticize the Christian faith or Islam. We can also turn against any government, and the biggest risk we might encounter is that of receiving polemics and retort.

There remains, however, one ultimate exception. For one theme, freedom of speech is absolutely not valid: Zionism! If one criticizes Zionism at all, then the reaction is conflicting and hostile. The subject of Zionism has almost become taboo. So thats the reason that the bloodlines book was banned in France. The book was published under the name LIVRE JAUNE No. 7 and talked, among other things, about the descendants of Judah (Jewish people), Zionism, and the foundation of the state of Isral. The reason the book was banned was because of my critique of Zionism.

I would have put that differently. I would say that it is criticism of Jews that has become the ultimate taboo.

De Ruiter is a popularizer, not a theorist or philosopher like, say, Kevin MacDonald or William Pierce, and those conversant with those mens work will not find much that is essential in Worldwide Evil and Misery, though the breadth of material cited is impressive and some of it may be new to all but the most indefatigable researchers. (For me, the study by Richard Villems was a new discovery which Ill be looking into more closely.)

But for those whose religious background (de Ruiter takes scripture seriously) or level of political development makes the full acceptance of the biocultural aspects of the Jewish problem hard to accept, it has some value. And all men who believe in free thought and free speech will be outraged by the attempted suppression of this book in Europe.

Kevin Alfred Strom – Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge …

Kevin Alfred Strom (born August 17, 1956) is an American white nationalist, neo-Nazi, Holocaust denier, white separatist and associate editor of National Vanguard. Strom resigned from National Vanguard in July 2006,[1] but rejoined in 2012.

In 2008 Strom pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and was sentenced to 23 months in prison, of which he served four months.[2] However, he maintains that the possession was not deliberate.[3]

Kevin Alfred Strom was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1956. Strom claims to have attended George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia without taking a degree.

Strom’s marriage to his first wife, Kirsten Kaiser, produced three children.[4] Since their marriage ended, Kaiser has spoken about her life with Strom in several interviews.[4][5] She has also written a book on her experiences with Strom and the National Alliance entitled The Bondage of Self (ISBN 0-9720705-5-9).

In 1982, Strom became a member of the National Alliance, a group that has been described as antisemitic,[6][7]racist,[7][8] and neo-Nazi.[9][10][11][12] In 1991, he founded and frequently delivered the American Dissident Voices shortwave and Internet radio broadcasts. In 1995, he founded and edited Free Speech magazine, published by the Alliance as an adjunct to the radio program. In early 2002, a few months before his death from cancer on July 23, the Alliance’s founder, William Luther Pierce, named Strom editor of National Vanguard magazine and Media Director for the Alliance. Pierce also named Strom editor of the Alliance’s monthly Bulletin.

During the weekend of April 1617, 2005, Strom and several others were expelled from the National Alliance because of a dispute with the Alliance leader Erich Gliebe.[7] The expelled former Alliance members, led by Strom, formed their own organization which they called the National Vanguard. As he had done for the National Alliance, Strom again delivered weekly Internet radio broadcasts which he also called American Dissident Voices for National Vanguard, but they were often 13 weeks late. These broadcasts effectively ceased with his departure.

Strom was briefly the managing editor of The Truth at Last newspaper during 2005. Several sources have described this tabloid as being highly antisemitic and racist, often referring to Africans as an inferior race.[11][13] Strom’s boss at The Truth at Last, Edward Fields, is a former Grand Dragon of the New Order Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.[14]

Strom was a close associate of University of Illinois Classics professor and nationalist writer Revilo P. Oliver, who has been described as “one of America’s most notorious fascists” and, according to B’nai Brith Canada, was “a long time proponent of antisemitism”.[15] Strom was chosen by the Oliver estate to be the archivist and publisher of Oliver’s papers after Oliver committed suicide in 1994. In 2002, Strom published Oliver’s book, The Jewish Strategy.

Strom is a former broadcast engineer and holds amateur radio license WB4AIO. Between 1983 and 1991, a pirate radio station named “Voice of Tomorrow” operated on shortwave and mediumwave frequencies,[16] broadcasting openly racist and neo-Nazi material.[17] According to Strom’s ex-wife, Kirsten Kaiser, “Voice of Tomorrow” was operated by Strom.[5]

On January 4, 2007, Strom was arrested in Greene County, Virginia on charges of possession of child pornography and witness tampering.[18] The Grand Jury later added the charges of receiving child pornography and of seeking to coerce a 10-year-old into a sexual relationship. At the October 2007 federal trial on charges of sexually coercing a 10-year-old girl, and of witness intimidation, the judge threw out both charges due to lack of evidence.[19]

At the plea hearing on January 14, 2008, Strom pleaded guilty to possessing computer images of child pornography and was held at Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail while awaiting sentencing.[20] On April 21, 2008, he was sentenced to 23 months of incarceration, with credit for times served, and 15 years of supervised release.[2] He was released from prison on September 3, 2008, at which point he resided in Earlysville, Virginia.[21] As of 2015, he maintains his innocence.[22]

Kevin Strom announced the opening of the new National Alliance on December 28, 2013 and is continuing broadcasts of American Dissident Voices in the original format, from a compound under construction in Tennessee with a group of original followers of William Pierce.[23]

The statement “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize” is often attributed to Voltaire, the French Enlightenment writer, historian and philosopher. In fact, it is a misquote of something said by Strom in his program, “All America Must Know the Terror That is Upon Us” (1993): “To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?” The misattributed quotation continues to spread across the Internet.[24][25]

Kevin Alfred Strom: If White People Cease to Exist, Life …

On the latest edition of the alt-rightRed Ice Radio podcast, host Henrik Palmgren interviewed Kevin Alfred Strom, a Holocaust denier andhead of the faltering Neo-Nazi organization National Vanguard.

Palmgren complimented Strom for branching out into philosophy and science, citing his discussion of going into space, going to different planets. He also lamented that, were the white race to disappear entirely, there would be no one to carry the torch of the philosophical tradition and space exploration.

Strom agreed, saying that if the European race does not survive, it is quite possible that life will eventually simply end, and there will be no more. Strom reasoned that life on Earth is very limited in time and that space exploration will be required to keep humanity alive. Additionally, it will have to be white people who pioneer the technology necessary to accomplish this feat.

For evidence, Strom brought up fellow white nationalist Charles Murrays 2003 bookHuman Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950. According to graphs in Murrays book as reported by Strom Europe and European-descended people in North America contributed 97 percent of scientific accomplishments.

Theres no chance that, if the European race is destroyed and our whatever it isabout us, that special combination of intelligence and creativity that gives us that 97 to 99 percent [of scientific achievements], he said. By the time non-whites were to catch up with whites, he asserted, fossil fuels will have long since run out, and technological civilization will be impossible, and journeys to other worlds [and] into other star systems will be impossible.

Palmgren: Now you did one of the things that I like about some of your work as well is that you expanded beyond just the, you know, the political, beyond just the, you know, the kind of more its not mundane by any means, but its of course more, you know, temporary issues. And you expanded into kind of eternal questions of philosophy and, Whats the purpose?

Youve even spoken quite a bit about, you know, maybe our destiny going into space, going to different planets and these kinds of aspects, which is very, very interesting. You did two parts recently on the issue of entropy. It kind of goes a little bit along with what youre talking about over this fact were constantly fighting against kind of a natural form of degradation.

Everything is slowly slowing down and breaking down, and we as human beings, and as life overall, is there in that process of kind of, you know, resisting that to a certain extent. And I find it really interestinglistening to that because it takes it intoa much bigger picture than just speaking about, you know, demographics or, you know, human biodiversity.

That theres a larger and much bigger aspect to this and to what we are part of, and to the, you know, the legacy of philosophy and civilization that we carry as well, so its a very important and big, you know, question at the same time in regards to, you know, if we lose Western civilization, if we lose European people overall, how many are gonna carry the torch of the philosophical tradition? How many are gonna carry the torch of, you know, space exploration and going to those extra extent [sic] that goes kind of beyond the biological needs, dont you agree?

Strom: I do agree. And I think if the European race does not survive, it is quite possible that life will eventually simply end, and there will be no more. Becauselife on Earth is very limited in time. It is not going to go on forever. We have to become, as Elon Musk says, an interplanetary species if were going to survive. And I think that the survival of the European race is essential for that to happen.

In my series that you referred to, The White Race and the Arrow of Time, in part two of that series, I brought forward a couple of graphs from Charles Murrays bookHuman Accomplishment. And those graphs show, quite dramatically, how important it is that our race survive. It showsthe scientific accomplishments over the last several millennia and the significant figures in scientific accomplishment over the same time period.

And then it breaks it down over which continents, which peoples of those continents contributed. And in both significant figures and in significant accomplishments, Europe and European-descended people in North America contributed 97 percent of those accomplishments. And most of the remaining 3 percent were from the ancient Western world in other words, they broke that down further and said the ancient Western world is a separate category, so most of the remaining 3 percent was also Europeans.

And there were some contributions from the Arab world, there were some contributions from East Asia, but they were minuscule in comparison, and we are in a situation where our planet is not going to have fossil fuels forever. Our chances of maintaining this technology is limited in time. We cannot continue a technological civilization forever. If were going to escape the bounds of Earth, we have to do it soon.

Theres no chance that, if the European race is destroyed and our whatever it isabout us, that special combination of intelligence and creativity that gives us that 97 to 99 percent. Whatever that is may well die. And before any other race would have time over millennia to achieve what we have done to get back to the point of intelligence and creativity that we have if they can do that the fossil fuels will have long since run out, and technological civilization will be impossible, and journeys to other worlds [and] into other star systems will be impossible. So it is absolutely imperative that our race survive.

Strom declared that white people are facing a deliberate attempt to exterminate our race with the culprit being the largely Jewish power elite which has created an inverted morality that is the opposite of a proper morality. This so-called inverted morality is responsible for mass immigration, convenience abortion, the transfer of wealth to non-white minority populations, and the promotion of feminism.

You can really understand where its all coming from if you just stand back from it, and see that this everything about this inverted morality is designed to minimize, or actually prevent, the births of white children, Strom proclaimed. Everything that is supported by this inverted morality tends to militate against more white children and, of course, anything that is for more white children is regarded as evil.Perhaps his love of white children explains his 2007 arrest and subsequent conviction for possessing kiddie porn.

Strom then denounced the Jews as a parasitic peopleand claimed the Nazis successfully freed themselves from Jewish influence. According to Strom, the Jews have doubled down on their anti-white, anti-racial, andanti-evolutionary morality, and are willing to exterminate whites in order to make the world safe for them and their way of life.

Strom: In my opinion, we are facing a deliberate attempt to exterminate our race. I believe that we are being genocided [sic] by a largely Jewish power elite that has created an inverted morality which, in all important respects, is really the opposite of a proper morality. The morality that we instinctively would gravitate to if we had the right to form our own laws and institutionsin our societies that were truly our own.

And this inverted morality, whether it be promotion of mass immigration, whether it be promotion of convenience abortion, whether it be promotion of wealth transfers to the non-white minority populations, [whether it] be the promotion of feminism.

You can really understand where its all coming from if you just stand back from it, and see that this everything about this inverted morality is designed to minimize, or actually prevent, the births of white children. And everything that inverted morality is for tends to militate against more white children. And anythingthat is for more white children is regarded as evil by this inverted morality, and its a morality that we simply will not survive if we continue to embrace it.

Palmgren: What do you think the reasoning is behind this? I mean, weve addressed this question all the time on the show. Are we seen as an enemy? I mean I think at this stage, you know, Kevin, most white people, most Europeans, they dont have an ethnic consciousness at all. They dont even think truly I dont think they think in these terms.

Its almost that the recent change that weve seen with identity politics and all these kinds of things, that has kind of pushed white people into a perspective where they have been forced to think about these questions, oraddress it for the first time because they have been charged with crimes of being racists, for example, just for being white, you know, for example.

So to a certain extent weve been cornered, right? But, what do you think is the reasoning return to that point again are we seen as a competitor? As an enemy? Or what drives our enemies, do you think?

Strom: I think the enemies of the white race include a lot of white people, obviously. And I think these people have accepted this morality. I think many, many people in every society not just white societies, but in every society are followers. They have to be. If you had all leaders you would have chaos. You have to have leaders and followers, and unfortunately the last few generations including my generation grew up under this inverted morality. They were taught that we must have a multicultural society, that it is somehow unfair, its mean, its even evil to have a society just for whites. Thats evil.

However, I dont think that white people are really the driving force behind this inverted morality. I think the Jewish minority, the Jewish power structure, who are the worlds richest and most powerful ethnic group on planet Earth, designed this morality specifically to keep us under control. And if it happens to exterminate us to make the world safe for them and their way of life, they dont care.

And they are I think they had big trouble in Germany during World War II. I think that the German people were freed from their influence, and I believe there was a [tremendous] obviously, everybody who reads history books from any point of view knows there was a tremendous conflict between National Socialist Germany and the Jews. And they dont want to take a chance on that happening again.

And so theyve doubled down on their anti-white, anti-racial, and really when it comes down to it, although they might not describe it this way, anti-evolutionary morality they are imposing on us. And I believe that they have their own interests in doing so. They are a parasitic people. They are nomadic. They exist by living in other peoples countries. And, until very recently, they did not have their own country. And they because of that, they are constantly a minority in someone elses land.

Kevin Alfred Strom – National Alliance: Evolutionary …

Kevin was born in 1956 in Anchorage, Alaska, to son third-generation Norwegian-American parents. He worked with William L. Pierce, Richard Cotten, and Revilo Oliver beginning in the early 1980s, producing hundreds of radio, audio and video programs, thousands of essays, and numerous articles, books, periodicals and anthologies. Kevin is the editor of National Vanguard magazine and has played an active role in both iterations of the National Alliance.

The show begins with Kevin telling us how he came to be involved with White Nationalism. We learn that he became disillusioned with multiculturalism and political correctness when he was 12-years-old. Henrik then asks Kevin to outline his worldview. Kevin tells us that everything in the universe is constantly evolving; as such, our goal is to ensure that our race evolves upwards, not downwards. He continues, explaining that there is a deliberate attempt to destroy our race, and that our traditional morals have been inverted to further this nefarious end. We also cover Jewish influence, which Kevin argues is the source of our current plight, and the role of Donald Trump in the ongoing struggle to preserve the West. The first hour concludes with discussion on the National Alliance and how the Federal government has attempted to derail White Nationalist organizations in the past.

The members hour begins with consideration of the uniqueness of the European race. We then discuss how anti-White propaganda and rhetoric fuels the Alt-Right. We discuss the ongoing, third world invasion of the West. Kevin predicts that this system wont last, and as society continues to break down, more and more people will begin wondering what went wrong. We then consider whether or not we will be able to find salvation through the ballot. Kevin argues that we will not find any serious change through the political system, as White births are already the minority. In light of this, he believes that revolution or secession are the only options. The members hour also touches on the illusory benefits of multiculturalism and the importance of withdrawing from the system as much as possible.

Kevin Alfred Strom – RationalWiki

There is nothing as wonderful as pretty girls, and I suspect that the entire purpose of human existence, or perhaps even of the universe itself is so that they might live. Kevin Alfred Strom is an American white nationalist and convicted pedophile.[2] In high school Strom was introduced to the John Birch Society by a teacher. He eventually left as he felt that the organisation did not have enough emphasis on race, and instead became a disciple of the neo-Nazi William Luther Pierce, joining Pierce’s National Alliance.[1] During the 1980s he ran a pirate radio station, “The Voice of To-Morrow”[3], which had a rather infamous reputation among shortwave radio listeners, i.e. it was met with almost universal dislike for its openly white supremacist programming.[4][5] The format consisted mostly of interviews and commentary from white supremacist activists. During the 1990s he took his radio efforts legal with the show “American Dissident Voices”, sponsored by the National Alliance and carried by whatever shortwave and AM stations were willing to sell them airtime. William Pierce introduced Strom to Kirsten Kaiser, and the two married in 1990. They had three children, although Strom lost custody of them after reportedly abandoning one on the grounds that they were a “weakling”. The two later divorced.[1] After Pierce’s death in 2002 Strom and his second wife, Elisha, were amongst the members of the National Alliance who got into a dispute with the leadership and started a split-off organization called the National Vanguard in 2005.[1][2][6] An anti-semite, Strom has argued that Jews are “dominant and influential in debasing and deceiving white women and girls on such a massive scale” that they cannot be forgiven.[7] In 2006 Strom’s home was raided and his computer seized; the following year he was arrested on five charges of possession of child pornography. In 2008 he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 23 months.[2][7] The criticism that he received during this period led him to disband the National Vanguard.[1] Elisha Strom had become estranged from her husband after catching him looking at child porn prior to his arrest. During his trial she commented that he seemed to find the accusation of Neo-Nazism to be more offensive than the accusations of pedophilia.[7]

Journalists Fall for Fake ‘Far Cry 5’ Petition, Bash Video Gamers as Dangerous Racists – Heat Street

A fake petition demanding the cancellation of Far Cry 5 surfaced a few days ago, expressing anger at the games apparent portrayal of white American religious extremists as villains. With fewer than a dozen signatures, no one took notice of the petition, and it wouldve been buried until it was shared in game-journalist circleswhere it blew up and spawned almost two dozen news articles about heh, gamers being racist basement dwellers, just like Hillary Clinton always assumed. The petition begins with a complaint about Ubisofts multicultural lectures and ragesat preachy games aimed at degenerates and miscegenators. It reads like a parody. Thats because it is. Posted as an open letter, it calls for the games developer, Ubisoft, to cancel the game or change it to include violence against Muslims and inner city gangs instead of American Christians. It also calls for the developer to change the Montana setting to Canada. Of course, in the game itself, the bad guys arent Christians at alltheyre cultists, like the Branch Davidians. They even use a symbol inspired by the Church of Scientology. Furthermore, an expanded version of Far Cry 5s rogues gallery includes a black man in what many assumed was a white-nationalist Christian organization. The obviously fake petition even throws in a mention of GamerGate, the consumer-driven movement for ethics in games journalism, and has a line about the continued rejection of romantic partners when they find out our hobby. Theres even a threat of violent repercussions against Ubisoft should they choose to leave the game unaltered. To top it off, the author misattributes a quote by neo-Nazi pedophile Kevin Alfred Strom to Voltaire, misspelled as Boltair. Classic. Its a very stupid hoaxbut its one that allows game journalists to pen ludicrous articles taking the letter at face value, as an example of entitled, and deranged video game players who play too much Call of Duty. The bait is taken and it feeds their narrative. While several publications noted the possibility that it was a product of trolls, sites like the International Business Times and Digital Trends wasted no time decrying disgruntled gamers with articles that took the petition at face value. GameReactor blamed alt-right nationalists for the post. On Twitter, video game diversity consultant Tanya DePass wrote a long rant about how the treatment of the petition by game journalists, who used it to mock gamers, were simply not treating it seriously enough. People keep loling at the line about not being to get laid/dates but fear of violence from rejected dudes is legit, she wrote, and insisted that entitled gamers playing oppression olympics aint never going to be funny to me. Muslim game developer Rami Ismail says he bookmarked the petition to cite in future arguments. Bookmarking this beauty for when I get told Im being too sensitive & too offended by Muslim antagonists in games, he wrote. Reminder: if you cant tell if something is or isnt satire, it might as well be true, because it is clearly credible. An obvious hoax is clearly credible because we live in the post-truth age, apparently. James Paley, who covered the story on Cogconnected,admitted he knew the story was a hoax but published it anyway. Thats something I hoped readers would discover on their own, moments after reading the petition in question, he said. Writing for Mashable, Adam Rosenberg was no better, and acknowledged the possibility of it being written by a troll, but stated it was worth engaging. Doubling down on the false narrative, game journalist Susan Arendt attacked people who claimed it was fake. She wrote: Her tweets were not well-received. Ian Miles Cheong is a journalist and outspoken media critic. You can reach him through social media at@stillgray on Twitterand onFacebook.

Voltaire and the one-liner – OUPblog (blog)

As we mark Voltaires 323rd birthday though the date of 20 February is problematic, what significance does the great Enlightenment writer have for us now? If I had to be very very short, Id say that Voltaire lives on as a master of the one-liner. He presents us with a paradox. Voltaire wrote a huge amount the definitive edition of his Complete works being produced by the Voltaire Foundation in Oxford will soon be finished, in around 200 volumes. And yet he is really famous for his short sentences. He likes being brief, though as a critic once remarked, Voltaire is interminably brief. Voltaires most famous work, Candide, is full of telling phrases. If this is the best of all possible worlds, what are the others? asks Candide in Chapter 6. The expression best of all possible worlds comes originally from the philosopher Leibniz, but it is Voltaires repeated use of the phrase in Candide that has made it instantly familiar today. Another saying from the novel was an instant hit with French readers: in Chapter 16, Candide and his manservant Cacambo, travelling in the New World dressed as Jesuits, fall into the hands of cannibals who exclaim triumphantly: Mangeons du jsuite (Lets eat some Jesuit): the Jesuits were highly unpopular in France at this time, and the expression instantly became a catch-phrase. One French expression from Candide has even become proverbial in English. In 1756, the British lost Minorca to the French, as a result of which Admiral Byng was court-martialled and executed. Voltaire has fun with this in Chapter 23: And why kill this admiral? Because he didnt kill enough people, Candide was told. He gave battle to a French admiral, and it has been found that he wasnt close enough. But, said Candide, the French admiral was just as far away from the English admiral as he was from him! Unquestionably, came the reply. But in this country it is considered a good thing to kill an admiral from time to time, pour encourager les autres. Voltaires other writings are equally full of pithy and memorable short sentences, which often help him drive home a point, such as this, from his Questions sur lEncyclopdie: Lespce humaine est la seule qui sache quelle doit mourir (The human species is unique in knowing it must die). Other lines, like this one from his poem about luxury, Le Mondain, Le superflu, chose trs ncessaire (The superfluous, a very necessary thing) are all the more memorable for being in verse. Voltaires facility for producing snappy phrases is even there in his private correspondence, as this letter to his friend Damilaville (1 April 1766): Quand la populace se mle de raisonner, tout est perdu(When the masses get involved in reasoning, everything is lost). And one phrase that still resonates with us comes from a private notebook that Voltaire surely never intended to publish: Dieu nest pas pour les gros bataillons, mais pour ceux qui tirent le mieux (God is on the side not of the heavy battalions, but of the best shots). Then there are the ones that got away, the one-liners he never actually said misquotations in the parlance of the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. Hardly a week passes without a newspaper quoting I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. Voltaires rallying cry of free speech is central to our modern liberal agenda, so its a bit awkward that he never actually said it. The expression was made up in 1906 by an English woman, biographer E. B. Hall. But she meant well, and we have collectively decided that Voltaire should have said it. Another advantage of Voltaires one-liners is that they provide great marketing copy, and a quick search on the web reveals that many of them are for sale, on t-shirts, shopping-bags, and mugs. I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it is especially popular, in French as well as English which explains my favourite t-shirt: Je me battrai jusqu ma mort pour que vous puissiez citer erronment Voltaire (I will fight to my death so that you can quote Voltaire incorrectly). Luckily, wit is contagious. There is a famous one-liner in Beaumarchais The Marriage of Figaro, when the servant Figaro imagines addressing his aristocratic master: Vous vous tes donn la peine de natre, et rien de plus (You took the trouble to be born, and nothing more). This has become so celebrated that we have forgotten that Beaumarchais was only improving on a less snappy one-liner he had found in one of Voltaires more obscure comedies. George Bernard Shaw, a self-styled follower of Voltaire, has fun with misattributed sayings in Man and Superman: Tanner: Let me remind you that Voltaire said that what was too silly to be said could be sung. Straker: It wasnt Voltaire. It was Bow Mar Shay. Tanner: I stand corrected: Beaumarchais of course. And so we go on inventing Voltaire. Another dictum that has recently gained wide currency on the web is this: To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize. Now regularly attributed to Voltaire, this saying seems to originate with something written in 1993 by Kevin Alfred Strom, an American neo-Nazi Holocaust denier, and not a man who obviously exudes Voltairean wit and irony. But once you become an authority, it seems, all sides have a claim on you. The one-liner can seem a good way of encapsulating a truth: Si Dieu nexistait pas, il faudrait linventer (If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him). Voltaire knew he was on to a winner with this line, from a poem of 1768 (the Eptre lauteur du livre des trois imposteurs), and he re-used it often in later works. Another much-repeated phrase occurs at the end of Candide. When the characters finally come together, after umpteen trials and tribulations, all argument is silenced with the words Il faut cultiver notre jardin (We must cultivate our garden). Is this a precious nugget of wisdom, neatly encapsulated? Or is it just another Brexit means Brexit, a trite phrase meaning anything and nothing? But that, of course, is another use of the one-liner: to maintain suspense, while bringing down the curtain at the end. Featured image credit: Assassination of Henry IV by Gaspar Bouttats.

Robin de Ruiter: Banned in France Kevin Alfred Strom

Authors conspiracy book banned in France by Kevin Alfred Strom HAVING BEEN THROUGH (and ultimately rejected) the right wing and conservative movements early in my life, I have seen a great many books purporting to expose political or financial conspiracies. Quite a few are worthless. A significant number of these are so ludicrous as to actually serve the cause of those they ostensibly criticize, who may indeed covertly finance the nuttier tomes. A few are indispensable. Many also fall into the category of interesting, though flawed. (Some fun favorites of mine in the worthless or bogus categories: The militia writer who claimed that most of us would die when the Earth passed through a poison gas belt in 1991, and who thoughtfully offered for sale special gas masks to save us; the prolific Spotlight advertiser who warned us about the giant crack that the Illuminati were going to engineer under the Atlantic Ocean, proved by Bible prophecy; and the 9-11 theorists who claim that there were no terrorists and no jets all was a 3-D holographic projection. I could go on indefinitely.) In general, I think that its insane to believe that groups especially intensely ethnocentric minorities never conspire; but believing that most of the evils of the world are the work of a master conspiracy is also pathological, in my opinion. Dutch writer Robin de Ruiters book, Worldwide Evil and Misery, dealing with some of the nefarious actions of the Rothschilds and other financial dynasties, falls into the interesting, though flawed, category. His thesis is that these families, through Zionism and other movements controlled by them, are, under the guise of democracy and free markets, instituting a world government which no one will be able to challenge and from whose jurisdiction no man or woman will be able to escape. In the course of the book, de Ruiter discusses some subjects that the Jewish/Zionist power structure considers taboo: the Khazar genetic contribution to todays Jewish population (which is real but which I also believe is less than and much less significant than Koestler and de Ruiter assert); the connection and coperation between Zionists and National Socialist Germany; anti-Gentile and anti-Christian passages in the Talmud; the interesting (though mutually exclusive) claims by researchers 1) that about half of Ashkenazi Jews are genetically distinct from all other human populations, except for a small admixture with other Jewish groups (Dr. Richard Villems) and 2) that Jews and Palestinians are genetically indistinguishable (Professor Arnaiz-Villena); and the covert promotion of anti-Jewish pogroms and atrocities by Zionists to encourage Jewish support for, and migration to, Israel. Thanks to the generosity of the author, you can read the chapters of the book dealing directly with Jews and Zionism free via an online PDF file. The only thing Mr. de Ruiter asks is that those offering the file also show a link to his publishers page. De Ruiter sees National Socialism more as a facet of Illuminati/Zionist intrigue than as an instrument of German nationalism or European racial-nationalism. This is quite wrong, but connections between the German government of the time and Zionism certainly existed. De Ruiter is no World War II revisionist: he accepts the 6 million tale uncritically (which is just as unrealistic, I think, as the claims that there were no summary executions of Jews by Germans during the war). But that wasnt enough to save him from legal persecution for stating the truth as he saw it. In his chapter on Zionism, de Ruiter says If we analyze the roots of Zionism and make amends to the principles of the ideology that lays claim to Palestine, we cross an unwritten line. We have then almost committed a crime, and, before we know it, we appear in court. In order to prevent this I am forced to incorporate all critical quotes in this chapter about Zionism, from erudite Jewish researchers, important Jewish authors and rabbis. Many of them complain about the blurred vision of their own supporters. When he says that critics of Zionism, before they know it, appear in court, de Ruiter knows whereof he speaks. The French edition of this book, part of the Livre Jaune series, was suppressed in France, although one can still read some of the volumes online, including a large excerpt from the banned book. According to de Ruiter, he first published the book in Mexico in 1989. But the French-language edition was legally suppressed under the race speech censorship laws in that country the same sorts of laws which are gradually being introduced in the U.S. under the guise of hate crime legislation. De Ruiter stated in an interview with me: All other ideologies, opinions and ideas can be openly examined, analyzed and criticized. We can happily discuss politics and criticize the Christian faith or Islam. We can also turn against any government, and the biggest risk we might encounter is that of receiving polemics and retort. There remains, however, one ultimate exception. For one theme, freedom of speech is absolutely not valid: Zionism! If one criticizes Zionism at all, then the reaction is conflicting and hostile. The subject of Zionism has almost become taboo. So thats the reason that the bloodlines book was banned in France. The book was published under the name LIVRE JAUNE No. 7 and talked, among other things, about the descendants of Judah (Jewish people), Zionism, and the foundation of the state of Isral. The reason the book was banned was because of my critique of Zionism. I would have put that differently. I would say that it is criticism of Jews that has become the ultimate taboo. De Ruiter is a popularizer, not a theorist or philosopher like, say, Kevin MacDonald or William Pierce, and those conversant with those mens work will not find much that is essential in Worldwide Evil and Misery, though the breadth of material cited is impressive and some of it may be new to all but the most indefatigable researchers. (For me, the study by Richard Villems was a new discovery which Ill be looking into more closely.) But for those whose religious background (de Ruiter takes scripture seriously) or level of political development makes the full acceptance of the biocultural aspects of the Jewish problem hard to accept, it has some value. And all men who believe in free thought and free speech will be outraged by the attempted suppression of this book in Europe.

In 2008 Strom pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and was sentenced to 23 months in prison, of which he served four months.[2] However, he maintains that the possession was not deliberate.[3] Kevin Alfred Strom was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1956. Strom claims to have attended George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia without taking a degree. Strom’s marriage to his first wife, Kirsten Kaiser, produced three children.[4] Since their marriage ended, Kaiser has spoken about her life with Strom in several interviews.[4][5] She has also written a book on her experiences with Strom and the National Alliance entitled The Bondage of Self (ISBN 0-9720705-5-9). In 1982, Strom became a member of the National Alliance, a group that has been described as antisemitic,[6][7]racist,[7][8] and neo-Nazi.[9][10][11][12] In 1991, he founded and frequently delivered the American Dissident Voices shortwave and Internet radio broadcasts. In 1995, he founded and edited Free Speech magazine, published by the Alliance as an adjunct to the radio program. In early 2002, a few months before his death from cancer on July 23, the Alliance’s founder, William Luther Pierce, named Strom editor of National Vanguard magazine and Media Director for the Alliance. Pierce also named Strom editor of the Alliance’s monthly Bulletin. During the weekend of April 1617, 2005, Strom and several others were expelled from the National Alliance because of a dispute with the Alliance leader Erich Gliebe.[7] The expelled former Alliance members, led by Strom, formed their own organization which they called the National Vanguard. As he had done for the National Alliance, Strom again delivered weekly Internet radio broadcasts which he also called American Dissident Voices for National Vanguard, but they were often 13 weeks late. These broadcasts effectively ceased with his departure. Strom was briefly the managing editor of The Truth at Last newspaper during 2005. Several sources have described this tabloid as being highly antisemitic and racist, often referring to Africans as an inferior race.[11][13] Strom’s boss at The Truth at Last, Edward Fields, is a former Grand Dragon of the New Order Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.[14] Strom was a close associate of University of Illinois Classics professor and nationalist writer Revilo P. Oliver, who has been described as “one of America’s most notorious fascists” and, according to B’nai Brith Canada, was “a long time proponent of antisemitism”.[15] Strom was chosen by the Oliver estate to be the archivist and publisher of Oliver’s papers after Oliver committed suicide in 1994. In 2002, Strom published Oliver’s book, The Jewish Strategy. Strom is a former broadcast engineer and holds amateur radio license WB4AIO. Between 1983 and 1991, a pirate radio station named “Voice of Tomorrow” operated on shortwave and mediumwave frequencies,[16] broadcasting openly racist and neo-Nazi material.[17] According to Strom’s ex-wife, Kirsten Kaiser, “Voice of Tomorrow” was operated by Strom.[5] On January 4, 2007, Strom was arrested in Greene County, Virginia on charges of possession of child pornography and witness tampering.[18] The Grand Jury later added the charges of receiving child pornography and of seeking to coerce a 10-year-old into a sexual relationship. At the October 2007 federal trial on charges of sexually coercing a 10-year-old girl, and of witness intimidation, the judge threw out both charges due to lack of evidence.[19] At the plea hearing on January 14, 2008, Strom pleaded guilty to possessing computer images of child pornography and was held at Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail while awaiting sentencing.[20] On April 21, 2008, he was sentenced to 23 months of incarceration, with credit for times served, and 15 years of supervised release.[2] He was released from prison on September 3, 2008, at which point he resided in Earlysville, Virginia.[21] As of 2015, he maintains his innocence.[22] Kevin Strom announced the opening of the new National Alliance on December 28, 2013 and is continuing broadcasts of American Dissident Voices in the original format, from a compound under construction in Tennessee with a group of original followers of William Pierce.[23] The statement “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize” is often attributed to Voltaire, the French Enlightenment writer, historian and philosopher. In fact, it is a misquote of something said by Strom in his program, “All America Must Know the Terror That is Upon Us” (1993): “To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?” The misattributed quotation continues to spread across the Internet.[24][25]

Kevin Alfred Strom: If White People Cease to Exist, Life …

On the latest edition of the alt-rightRed Ice Radio podcast, host Henrik Palmgren interviewed Kevin Alfred Strom, a Holocaust denier andhead of the faltering Neo-Nazi organization National Vanguard. Palmgren complimented Strom for branching out into philosophy and science, citing his discussion of going into space, going to different planets. He also lamented that, were the white race to disappear entirely, there would be no one to carry the torch of the philosophical tradition and space exploration. Strom agreed, saying that if the European race does not survive, it is quite possible that life will eventually simply end, and there will be no more. Strom reasoned that life on Earth is very limited in time and that space exploration will be required to keep humanity alive. Additionally, it will have to be white people who pioneer the technology necessary to accomplish this feat. For evidence, Strom brought up fellow white nationalist Charles Murrays 2003 bookHuman Accomplishment: The Pursuit of Excellence in the Arts and Sciences, 800 B.C. to 1950. According to graphs in Murrays book as reported by Strom Europe and European-descended people in North America contributed 97 percent of scientific accomplishments. Theres no chance that, if the European race is destroyed and our whatever it isabout us, that special combination of intelligence and creativity that gives us that 97 to 99 percent [of scientific achievements], he said. By the time non-whites were to catch up with whites, he asserted, fossil fuels will have long since run out, and technological civilization will be impossible, and journeys to other worlds [and] into other star systems will be impossible. Palmgren: Now you did one of the things that I like about some of your work as well is that you expanded beyond just the, you know, the political, beyond just the, you know, the kind of more its not mundane by any means, but its of course more, you know, temporary issues. And you expanded into kind of eternal questions of philosophy and, Whats the purpose? Youve even spoken quite a bit about, you know, maybe our destiny going into space, going to different planets and these kinds of aspects, which is very, very interesting. You did two parts recently on the issue of entropy. It kind of goes a little bit along with what youre talking about over this fact were constantly fighting against kind of a natural form of degradation. Everything is slowly slowing down and breaking down, and we as human beings, and as life overall, is there in that process of kind of, you know, resisting that to a certain extent. And I find it really interestinglistening to that because it takes it intoa much bigger picture than just speaking about, you know, demographics or, you know, human biodiversity. That theres a larger and much bigger aspect to this and to what we are part of, and to the, you know, the legacy of philosophy and civilization that we carry as well, so its a very important and big, you know, question at the same time in regards to, you know, if we lose Western civilization, if we lose European people overall, how many are gonna carry the torch of the philosophical tradition? How many are gonna carry the torch of, you know, space exploration and going to those extra extent [sic] that goes kind of beyond the biological needs, dont you agree? Strom: I do agree. And I think if the European race does not survive, it is quite possible that life will eventually simply end, and there will be no more. Becauselife on Earth is very limited in time. It is not going to go on forever. We have to become, as Elon Musk says, an interplanetary species if were going to survive. And I think that the survival of the European race is essential for that to happen. In my series that you referred to, The White Race and the Arrow of Time, in part two of that series, I brought forward a couple of graphs from Charles Murrays bookHuman Accomplishment. And those graphs show, quite dramatically, how important it is that our race survive. It showsthe scientific accomplishments over the last several millennia and the significant figures in scientific accomplishment over the same time period. And then it breaks it down over which continents, which peoples of those continents contributed. And in both significant figures and in significant accomplishments, Europe and European-descended people in North America contributed 97 percent of those accomplishments. And most of the remaining 3 percent were from the ancient Western world in other words, they broke that down further and said the ancient Western world is a separate category, so most of the remaining 3 percent was also Europeans. And there were some contributions from the Arab world, there were some contributions from East Asia, but they were minuscule in comparison, and we are in a situation where our planet is not going to have fossil fuels forever. Our chances of maintaining this technology is limited in time. We cannot continue a technological civilization forever. If were going to escape the bounds of Earth, we have to do it soon. Theres no chance that, if the European race is destroyed and our whatever it isabout us, that special combination of intelligence and creativity that gives us that 97 to 99 percent. Whatever that is may well die. And before any other race would have time over millennia to achieve what we have done to get back to the point of intelligence and creativity that we have if they can do that the fossil fuels will have long since run out, and technological civilization will be impossible, and journeys to other worlds [and] into other star systems will be impossible. So it is absolutely imperative that our race survive. Strom declared that white people are facing a deliberate attempt to exterminate our race with the culprit being the largely Jewish power elite which has created an inverted morality that is the opposite of a proper morality. This so-called inverted morality is responsible for mass immigration, convenience abortion, the transfer of wealth to non-white minority populations, and the promotion of feminism. You can really understand where its all coming from if you just stand back from it, and see that this everything about this inverted morality is designed to minimize, or actually prevent, the births of white children, Strom proclaimed. Everything that is supported by this inverted morality tends to militate against more white children and, of course, anything that is for more white children is regarded as evil.Perhaps his love of white children explains his 2007 arrest and subsequent conviction for possessing kiddie porn. Strom then denounced the Jews as a parasitic peopleand claimed the Nazis successfully freed themselves from Jewish influence. According to Strom, the Jews have doubled down on their anti-white, anti-racial, andanti-evolutionary morality, and are willing to exterminate whites in order to make the world safe for them and their way of life. Strom: In my opinion, we are facing a deliberate attempt to exterminate our race. I believe that we are being genocided [sic] by a largely Jewish power elite that has created an inverted morality which, in all important respects, is really the opposite of a proper morality. The morality that we instinctively would gravitate to if we had the right to form our own laws and institutionsin our societies that were truly our own. And this inverted morality, whether it be promotion of mass immigration, whether it be promotion of convenience abortion, whether it be promotion of wealth transfers to the non-white minority populations, [whether it] be the promotion of feminism. You can really understand where its all coming from if you just stand back from it, and see that this everything about this inverted morality is designed to minimize, or actually prevent, the births of white children. And everything that inverted morality is for tends to militate against more white children. And anythingthat is for more white children is regarded as evil by this inverted morality, and its a morality that we simply will not survive if we continue to embrace it. Palmgren: What do you think the reasoning is behind this? I mean, weve addressed this question all the time on the show. Are we seen as an enemy? I mean I think at this stage, you know, Kevin, most white people, most Europeans, they dont have an ethnic consciousness at all. They dont even think truly I dont think they think in these terms. Its almost that the recent change that weve seen with identity politics and all these kinds of things, that has kind of pushed white people into a perspective where they have been forced to think about these questions, oraddress it for the first time because they have been charged with crimes of being racists, for example, just for being white, you know, for example. So to a certain extent weve been cornered, right? But, what do you think is the reasoning return to that point again are we seen as a competitor? As an enemy? Or what drives our enemies, do you think? Strom: I think the enemies of the white race include a lot of white people, obviously. And I think these people have accepted this morality. I think many, many people in every society not just white societies, but in every society are followers. They have to be. If you had all leaders you would have chaos. You have to have leaders and followers, and unfortunately the last few generations including my generation grew up under this inverted morality. They were taught that we must have a multicultural society, that it is somehow unfair, its mean, its even evil to have a society just for whites. Thats evil. However, I dont think that white people are really the driving force behind this inverted morality. I think the Jewish minority, the Jewish power structure, who are the worlds richest and most powerful ethnic group on planet Earth, designed this morality specifically to keep us under control. And if it happens to exterminate us to make the world safe for them and their way of life, they dont care. And they are I think they had big trouble in Germany during World War II. I think that the German people were freed from their influence, and I believe there was a [tremendous] obviously, everybody who reads history books from any point of view knows there was a tremendous conflict between National Socialist Germany and the Jews. And they dont want to take a chance on that happening again. And so theyve doubled down on their anti-white, anti-racial, and really when it comes down to it, although they might not describe it this way, anti-evolutionary morality they are imposing on us. And I believe that they have their own interests in doing so. They are a parasitic people. They are nomadic. They exist by living in other peoples countries. And, until very recently, they did not have their own country. And they because of that, they are constantly a minority in someone elses land. Like Loading…

Kevin Alfred Strom – National Alliance: Evolutionary …

Kevin was born in 1956 in Anchorage, Alaska, to son third-generation Norwegian-American parents. He worked with William L. Pierce, Richard Cotten, and Revilo Oliver beginning in the early 1980s, producing hundreds of radio, audio and video programs, thousands of essays, and numerous articles, books, periodicals and anthologies. Kevin is the editor of National Vanguard magazine and has played an active role in both iterations of the National Alliance. The show begins with Kevin telling us how he came to be involved with White Nationalism. We learn that he became disillusioned with multiculturalism and political correctness when he was 12-years-old. Henrik then asks Kevin to outline his worldview. Kevin tells us that everything in the universe is constantly evolving; as such, our goal is to ensure that our race evolves upwards, not downwards. He continues, explaining that there is a deliberate attempt to destroy our race, and that our traditional morals have been inverted to further this nefarious end. We also cover Jewish influence, which Kevin argues is the source of our current plight, and the role of Donald Trump in the ongoing struggle to preserve the West. The first hour concludes with discussion on the National Alliance and how the Federal government has attempted to derail White Nationalist organizations in the past. The members hour begins with consideration of the uniqueness of the European race. We then discuss how anti-White propaganda and rhetoric fuels the Alt-Right. We discuss the ongoing, third world invasion of the West. Kevin predicts that this system wont last, and as society continues to break down, more and more people will begin wondering what went wrong. We then consider whether or not we will be able to find salvation through the ballot. Kevin argues that we will not find any serious change through the political system, as White births are already the minority. In light of this, he believes that revolution or secession are the only options. The members hour also touches on the illusory benefits of multiculturalism and the importance of withdrawing from the system as much as possible.
