Kevin Alfred Strom today

Kevin Alfred Strom is absolutely innocent of any crime against children or anyone else. He has paid a heavy price for his advocacy of self-determination for his people.

by Kevin Alfred Strom

given at Federal District Court, Charlottesville, Virginia on April 21, 2008; with annotations

MY NAME is Kevin Alfred Strom. I have been in solitary confinement for sixteen months. Circumstances and strategic considerations have kept me silent until now. But I have sworn to tell the whole truth, so I ask the court to grant me now perhaps one minute for every month I have been imprisoned.

All along Ive told the truth to everyone investigators, family members, this court, my closest friends about this case, even when that truth was embarrassing to me or easily misconstrued to be used against me.

Let me tell you a little about my background. For some 20 years, I worked as a broadcast engineer. For three years, until I moved to Virginia in 2001, I was the local chapter leader of the Family Support Network, a parenting group. Im a writer, a publisher, an editor, a broadcaster and an activist for social change whos taken on some powerful interest groups, armed only with a microphone and a pen. But more than anything else, Im a father.

The greatest title of honor Ive ever been given is Daddy.

National Vanguard (American organization) – Wikipedia

National Vanguard is an American national socialist organization based in Charlottesville, Virginia, founded in 2005 by Kevin Alfred Strom and former members of the National Alliance.[1]

The group was founded by dissident members of the National Alliance. The National Alliance’s 5-man Executive Committee, a think-tank created by Erich Gliebe 5-months earlier to explore new ideas, issued a formal declaration called “A Time for Leadership.”[2] The declaration decried then-Chairman Erich Gliebe’s dissolution of the National Alliance Board of Directors (sic), (this never occurred, the BoD has not changed since 2003) reducing its composition to include merely himself and COO Shaun Walker. It called for a reconstitution of the Board of Directors, and the merger of the Board with the Executive Committee in both membership and function. Gliebe and Walker rejected the declaration.

Gliebe and Walker claimed that Kevin Strom was not performing his job well as editor of their magazine, which was always many months late. There was a pay dispute where Kevin Strom claimed Shaun Walker was not paying him all his pay, which became a public dispute within Internet chat-rooms. This pay dispute and other internal conflicts created an atmosphere of petty personality conflicts which grew for 6 months until it erupted.

There were no legal options to take, so in April 2005 “National Vanguard” was formally organized by some former National Alliance Unit Coordinators and five members of the Executive Committee.[3]

The main issues cited for the split with the National Alliance were over the creation of an expanded Board of Directors, prompt and professional publishing of a news-magazine and open accounting of all funds collected. The new organization picked Kevin Alfred Strom as its new leader, but a Board of Directors was never created. Within 8 months half of all National Vanguard members had either resigned or formed another new group. Most of the key leaders who planned the initial coup from the National Alliance group had quit National Vanguard within 15 months, but without all the open Internet airing of “internal laundry.” In January 2007 Strom was arrested by the FBI and Federal Marshals for child pornography related charges and in 2008 he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 23 months in prison.[4]

As of October 2010, National Vanguard maintains a website featuring daily articles and updates.[1][5]

Since the reorganization of National Vanguard, the group has been focused upon unit meetings and the distribution of fliers. A boycott against the hardware chain The Home Depot was started because of their illegal immigrant stance. Units in Florida, Nevada, and New Jersey appear to be the most active. Members are attempting to form a new political party in Nevada: the White People’s Party.[6] One plank in the party’s platform calls for “the White Race” to be placed on the endangered species list since “all relevant laws are working against the continued existence of Whites.”[7]

In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, which struck the U.S. Gulf Coast on August 29, 2005, a National Vanguard First Response Team was organized to help white families in Alabama and Mississippi Sept. 20, 2005. Their decision to help only white victims of Katrina has been described as “reprehensible”.[8]

In 2005, National Vanguard showcased the pop-music duo Prussian Blue, made up of twin sisters from Bakersfield, California, Lynx and Lamb Gaede, whom the organization hoped would “be breaking new ground…creating an entire genre of pro-White music” that will cross over to mainstream audiences.[9][10] Their mother, April, is a writer and activist for National Vanguard.

In February 2006, the Tampa and Denver units of National Vanguard announced they were leaving the organization, citing a variety of complaints including a claim that National Vanguard had collected money for subscriptions to the tabloid, V, without subsequently delivering a product to subscribers. The two units have now formed a new organization the Nationalist Coalition.

American Dissident Voices broadcast of November 15, 2014

by Kevin Alfred Strom

I CONFESS to a slight distaste in so often writing and speaking on the subject of the Jews. They are a most unpleasant race, on the whole; their religion is base and primitive and unworthy even of analysis; their ethnocentrism is little more than crude hatred for all other peoples; their sexuality is by turns both insanely repressive and grossly degenerate; their admittedly high average intelligence can most charitably be described as predatory; and, though there are exceptions who are probably hybrids, those who look most characteristically Jewish are, frankly, repulsive. If they had confined themselves to some small spot in the Levant, selling their rags, telling fortunes, and swindling the locals, I doubt I should notice them much at all. Id no more likely be discussing them on American Dissident Voices than discussing the tribes of Bahrain or Yemen. (ILLUSTRATION: Jews.

Kevin_Alfred_Strom_index – America First Books

Editor’s Note: A major reason why America is suffering massive decline today on virtually all social levels is because white Americans have been subjected to massive anti-white brainwashing for decades. This has caused whites to lose faith in themselves on an economic, social, political, and racial level. In fact, whites often consider it moral to be more supportive of alien peoples than their own kind. This is one reason why white “leaders” have exported a major portion of America’s best jobs and industry overseas to China and other nonwhite competitors. These rootless “leaders” have accepted the steady demographic decline of the white middle class despite the rising threat of a Civil War Two scenario caused by excessive “diversity.” They have also slavishly followed the dictates of Israel by launching disastrous military adventures in the Middle East. The problem of white self-hatred is also causing terrible problems in Europe, whose indigenous populations are being replaced by Third World invaders. We can see the ultimate end game of this tragic trend in the case of South Africa, where whites foolishly relinquished control to black Marxists. Today, over a million whites have now fled a country that has turned into a complete economic and political basket case. A similar pattern is on track here in the United States unless enough whites snap out of their suicidal delusionsand yesterday was not soon enough. Kevin Strom, along with with his mentors, the late Dr. William Pierce and the late Dr. Revilo Oliver, stood out as one of the more articulate and insightful white nationalists of our era. The writings of all of these individuals provide a valuable antidote to help white Americans de-brainwash themselves out of the white self-hatred propaganda that has deeply infected our land. They also help white Americans better understand the origins of their malady. Significantly, most of their articles written as far back as the 1980’s and 1990’s are just as timely todayif not more soas they were back when they were first published. However, even among white nationalists there have been some complicating factors involving Kevin Strom and the ideology espoused by associations he has been associated with, such as the National Alliance and National Vanguard. One problem is ideological, and the other is personal. On an ideological level, an earlier version of the National Alliance credo stated: “The fact is that we need a strong, centralized government spanning several continents to coordinate many important tasks during the first few decades of a White world: the racial cleansing of the land, the rooting out of racially destructive institutions, and the reorganization of society on a new basis.” This aggressive statement can create problems for libertarian racial nationalists who prefer a decentralized, “bottom up” approach to government and cultural and racial regeneration. Libertarians believe that over the long run, highly centralized government under any ideological persuasion is more part of the problem than the solution. Also, for certain white racial separatists, it can undermines the moral image they are trying to cultivate as being basically defensive rather than aggressive. (As a point of fact, the American Old Right was generally anti-imperialistic when it came to “foreign entanglements.” It is not just the left that has generally been anti-war, but also the “classical liberal” branch of the libertarian right). Interestingly enough, in recent years one can detect in Kevin Strom’s writings a move away from many of the aggressive, pro-centrist positions of Dr. William Pierce. He has made increasing references towards libertarian views espoused by classical liberals such as Thomas Jefferson. To better understand Kevin Strom’s intellectual evolution, check out “My Political Education.” Incidentally, see also Dr. William Pierce’s equally fascinating article about his own evolution in “The Radicalizing of An American.” On the personal side, in recent years Kevin Strom has suffered from extreme marital, personal and legal problems. Unfortunately as a consequence of his incarceration, he has been heavily suppressed in his ability to tell his side of the story. He has written me that he definitely intends to tell the full side of the story once he is released from jail. For more discussion regarding his difficulties, please see the extended discussion of Kevin Strom’s case at the end of this articles archive.

To Learn Who Rules Over You: Viral Voltaire Quote Probably Originated with White Supremacist

The following meme has been making the rounds of the internet for couple years now, but has gone extra-viral in the days since the Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris:

The meme pops up after any sort of outrage over a statement that pokes at perceived cultural pieties, be it Gary Oldman spitting on Hollywood or any questioning of the Federal Reserve or the Obama rodeo clown. Its a common trope of comment sections, but occasionally surfaces in more mainstream discourse; Pat Buchanan used it just last week.

The quote is unanimously attributed to the French polymath Voltaire who, in fairness, was an aphorism-spouting machine. The problem: theres no record of Voltaire ever having said it. A Google search of the quote turns up absolutely nothing before 2012. (Smarter minds note the misattribution.) Twitter seems to have discovered it in May of that year.

The closest source to have been located is a 1993 text by white supremacist Kevin Alfred Strom entitled All America Must Know the Terror That is Upon Us. Strom was a co-founder of the West Virginia-based white supremacist organization National Vanguard; he later pled guilty to charges of possession of child pornography and served two years in prison.

Heres the likely culprit from Stroms book:

Even the sourcing on this is watery. Wikipedia lists the quote as misattributed to Voltaire and gives it to Strom. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given Storms affiliations, one of the other sources is a Stormfront message board. Theres a Reddit thread to same effect; ditto a Yahoo! Answers thread. None, obviously, should be taken as authoritative.

Sure enough, the meme does have an anti-Semitic variation that popped up last summer during Israels military campaign in Gaza:

As Thomas Jefferson once said, Never trust quotes you find on the internet.

"Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phono-records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.

In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include:

  • (1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for or nonprofit educational purposes,
  • (2) the nature of the copyrighted work,
  • (3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and
  • (4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work."
