Self Detonating Lone Wolf Vanguardists

After sitting down and thinking about it, I have decided not to write a general article about the subject of violence.

Upon reflection, the term “self detonating lone wolf vanguardist” and the damage that these people routinely inflict on the White Nationalist movement encompasses virtually all of the recent incidents which I wanted to address.

What is a “self detonating lone wolf vanguardist”? In his book Blood and Politics: A History of the White Nationalist Movement from the Margins to the Mainstream, Leonard Zeskind depicted the White Nationalist movement as being torn between “two political trends” which “vie for strategy hegemony”:

“Within the movement, two political trends, mainstreaming and vanguardism, view for strategic hegemony. The differences between the two are somewhat akin to the distinctions between reformists and revolutionaries. They both seek the same goal but differ over the manner in which they work toward it.

Broadly speaking, mainstreamers believe that a majority (or near majority) of white people can be won over to support their cause, and they try to influence the existing structures of American life.

Vanguardists think that they will never find more than a small minority of white people to support their aims voluntarily, and they build smaller organizations of highly dedicated cadres with the intention of forcefully dragging the rest of society behind them.” (Zeskind, p.xix)

What is a “lone wolf”?

“A lone wolf or lone-wolf fighter is someone who commits or prepares for, or is suspected of committing or preparing for, violent acts in support of some group, movement, or ideology, but who does so alone, outside of any command structure and without material assistance from any group.”

In other words, a “self detonating lone wolf vanguardist” is someone who is radically alienated from society and who has given up on persuasion, a fantasist who is inclined toward violent methods of bringing about eschatological political change, who usually acts alone or with an accomplice in the name of a movement without the support or assistance of any group, and who typically explodes, lashes out, or “self detonates” without warning in rampage shootings, murder-suicides, and bombing campaigns.

Some examples of the “self detonating lone wolf vanguardist” include Buford Furrow, Jr.James von BrunnWade Michael PageKevin HarphamJ.T. ReadyCurt Maynard, and James “Yankee Jim” Leshkevich. Their attacks can range from hopelessly incompetent rampage shootings – Frazier Glenn Miller, Jr. - to sophisticated and deadly acts of terrorism – Timothy McVeigh and Anders Behring Breivik.

Here are some thoughts on how to keep “self detonating lone wolf vanguardists” from damaging the Southern Nationalist movement:

1.) Staying Grounded In Reality – Unlike the White Nationalist movement, the Southern Nationalist movement needs to stay a reality-based, face-to-face social movement as it grows, and avoid falling into the trap of becoming dependent on online anonymous forums and blogs. The internet tends to bring out the worst in isolated, marginalized people, and Southern Nationalists should stick to using the internet as a communications tool.

2.) Leadership & Organization – It is demoralized lone wolves who self detonate.

In order to avoid this problem, the Southern Nationalist movement needs to stay tightly organized with established leaders who can emphasize that resorting to violence should be a collective decision, not an individual one. The White Nationalist movement is diffuse, disorganized, anonymous and internet based. The movement as a whole lacks structure, leadership, and organization.

“Do your own thing” is part of the hippie code. We shouldn’t tolerate an equivalent of VNN Forum “doing their own thing” in our name.

3.) Christianity – White Nationalism is based on race and ideology.

Southern Nationalism should emphasize Christian morality in order to attract the sort of people who can relate to their neighbors while simultaneously deterring the budding Hannibal Lecters who congregate at VNN Forum. White Southerners share a common culture and this is an asset which can be used to our advantage.

4.) Positive Action – The current emphasis on activism is a great way to channel the energies of our people in a positive direction that adds strength to our organization. Frazier Glenn Miller lashed out in anger because he was demoralized.

5.) Mainstreaming – As long as we emphasize that we are focused on winning over our fellow White Christian Southerners, the Southern Nationalist movement should remain unattractive to self detonating lone wolf vanguardists.

6.) Jews – Finally, when it comes to addressing the Jewish Question, we should acknowledge that there is a conflict of interest with Organized Jewry and the negative influence it exercises over our culture, but we should emphasize that our solution to that problem is to become a more powerful interest group by growing our numbers, raising money, and becoming more active and better organized and more vigilant in defending and asserting our interests.

It is self evident that rampage shootings, bombing campaigns, and murder-suicides solve nothing, create sympathy for our avowed enemies, and are destructive to our public image and reputation. These are things which should be avoided at costs.

In summary, we should offer a practical solution to a known problem, stay a reality based movement, channel the energies of our people into positive activism, focus our attention on organizing and winning over our people, and emphasize Christian morality and the leadership principle. If we can do that, we should be able to avoid becoming mired in a similar morass.

Update: Alex is back.

Predictably, Alex is lashing out at others rather than wrestling with his own conscience – he would have to have one to exhibit remorse.

I’ve told him for 10 years now, publicly, that “exterminating the Jews” was a terrible idea, and I never backed away from that position. It was sound advice. Now Rounder has acted on his terrible idea, will probably get the death penalty, destroyed his own family, has killed three innocent people, and destroyed the lives of their families.

I’m not the one who is going to have to live with that though.

L’Affaire Glenn Miller

Alabama

Update: The third victim, Terri LaManno, is a Catholic.

Glenn Miller goes on a shooting spree in Kansas

Glenn Miller goes on a shooting spree in Kansas

Like everyone, I am stunned by Glenn Miller’s shooting spree in Kansas.

There was nothing in his recent posts on VNN Forum that I saw that indicated to me that Glenn was contemplating doing anything like this. If I had any reason to suspect he was considering going on a shooting spree, I would have strongly advised him against it because his actions were immoral and counterproductive.

Why on earth would Glenn Miller murder a random 14-year-old child and his grandfather in cold blood? Here’s my theory:

1.) First, Glenn Miller thought the 14-year-old child and his grandfather were Jewish, and his hero Alex Linder has consistently advocated his “principled solution” of exterminating the Jews for 10 years now, so Glenn assumed that by acting to exterminate the Jews he would win the admiration of his peers at VNN Forum.

2.) Second, Alex Linder has identified Christian morality as a major obstacle to the dehumanization and extermination of the Jews, and Glenn Miller swallowed that psychopathic nonsense, and as a result he wasn’t restrained by the Ten Commandments when he opened fire on the 14-year-old child and his grandfather.

3.) Third, Glenn Miller wouldn’t have chosen to “go out in a blaze of glory” if he had any confidence in his peer group to reverse our racial and cultural decline. He was probably demoralized by interacting with his cowardly peers on VNN Forum. His actions suggest that he lashed out in rage at the “GD kikes” like another one of his heroes, Adolf Hitler, because he was depressed and had given up hope.

Finally, I want to say here that I am not “throwing Rounder under the bus,” although his actions are immoral and unjustifiable. I’m not the one who filled his mind with psychotic bullshit and convinced him to throw away his own life while taking the lives of others. I assumed that someone at VNN Forum was responsible for this on the basis of past experience and that conjecture turned out to be accurate.

It’s sad, but utterly predictable, when these things happen. As long as the White Nationalist movement remains anonymous, internet-based, passive, leaderless, demoralized, and disorganized – in a word, powerless – lone wolves will continue to self detonate in desperate acts of rage.

Note: Don Black of Stormfront has brought up Glenn Miller’s recent correspondence with John Paul Franklin whom he called “America’s greatest hero.” That’s not something I had noticed because I didn’t recognize the name.

Glenn Miller of VNN Forum Arrested For Kansas Shooting

Kansas

Update: Glenn Miller (aka Rounder) of VNN Forum has been arrested in connection with the shootings in Kansas.

Hmm … it sounds like another case of a self detonating lone wolf vanguardist:

“Two shootings have been reported at two separate Jewish-related sites in Overland Park, Kansas, leaving at least two people dead — one at each location.

The first shooting was reported at about 1PM at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. This was followed by reports of a shooting at Village Shalom, an assisted living center that has since been placed on lockdown.

It is unclear at this moment whether the two incidents are related, and there has been no immediate word on other injuries or a suspect description, though a reporter at KCTV says “a man in handcuffs at the scene was yelling about Hitler.”

Appalachia’s Impoverishment

Appalachia

Over the years, I have tried to explain this to various White Nationalists on the internet who know very little about Southern history, and who are under the misguided impression that Southern cotton plantations – hundreds of miles away in the river valleys in places like the Alabama Black Belt and West Tennessee – were responsible for the postwar impoverishment of Whites in Appalachia:

“The Civil War, in both its regular and irregular versions, casts a long shadow of Appalachian history. Though there were other causes of the region’s impoverishment, the effects of the war were significant. The impoverishment of the defeated South generally hurt Appalachia in several ways. The plantation market for Appalachian livestock and foodstuffs was drastically reduced after the war, as were livestock herds in districts where the armies had foraged. The state-owned or state-subsidized railroad systems were substantially wrecked. Railroad corporations based in the North gradually gathered up the financial wreckage as the roads were rebuilt and thereafter operated most of the roads as subsidiaries of northern systems. Although mountain resorts emerged from the war intact, their upper class southern patrons were damaged beyond the extent that even General Lee, who made a point of visiting White Sulphur Springs during the immediate postwar years, could repair.

Wartime congressional initiatives that granted free land to western railroads and free homesteads to settlers of the trans-Mississippi West in effect subsidized competing producers of the agricultural commodities that had underpinned Appalachia’s antebellum prosperity. Although the region’s relative prosperity had been compromised as farmers and herdsmen moved ever more deeply into the Appalachian Plateau, the profits of the antebellum era had borne fruit in the form of several promising local initiatives that were subsequently damaged or disrupted by the war. Two examples are provided by the Burning Springs oilfield near Parkersburg, West Virginia, and the emerging iron making districts around Chattanooga and in northern Alabama. When these industries eventually did flourish, it was as subsidiaries or junior partners of northern firms.

With the impediment of southern congressmen and senators nullified, Congress enacted other legislation that placed the South generally and Appalachia in particular at a disadvantage vis-a-vis the North and West. The National Banking Act of 1863 created a national banking system that dried up credit in the South and West and allowed regional developers to operate only on terms laid down by metropolitan financial interests. Added to lowland resentment at real or imputed mountain disloyalty during the war, the impoverishment of southern state governments meant that the public funding that had financed the canals, turnpikes, and railroads – not to mention the puny educational funding of the antebellum era – was no longer an option for needful mountain communities.

In communities that have been studied intensively, such as Beech Creek, Kentucky, and Cades Cove, Tennessee, the years between 1850 and 1880 were decisive ones in the transition from the backcountry to Appalachia, from the region traversed by Lanman and Olmstead that was united by a common culture, a prospering economy, and a satisfying way of life to a postwar society that was fragmented, divided, impoverished, and violent. The demographic transition, whereby unlimited population growth ran up against diminished resources, was perhaps more significant, but since the war was the most important event of the transitional decades and contributed to the decline of Appalachia’s prospects, the two causes cannot really be separated. Demography lacks the capacity to claim our sympathy for individuals whose fate it was to be born in such interesting times. Stories of war will always be able to do that.”

Colonial Appalachia

The Scots-Irish settled Appalachia by following the Great Wagon Road

The Scots-Irish settled Appalachia by following the Great Wagon Road

Appalachia

The first chapter of John Alexander Williams’ Appalachia: A History is an account of the settlement of Appalachia by the first White settlers, the Germans and English, who were soon followed into the Great Valley from Pennsylvania by the Scots-Irish.

It also focuses on the displacement and destruction of the Indian tribes who once inhabited Appalachia, from north to south, the Iroquois, Shawnee, and Cherokee.

Here’s the final paragraph of the chapter that sums up how Appalachia became a “white man’s country”:

“With the tragedy of the Trail of Tears, the first phase of Appalachian history came to a close. Thanks to the rumors of gold that had circulated three hundred years earlier, the aboriginal peoples of the mountains first faced the disease and destruction that accompanied the European invasion of America. Now the actuality of gold in north Georgia gleamed briefly but brightly enough to lead the process of destruction and loss to its logical end. After 1838, Appalachia was “a white man’s country,” surrounded on all sides by Euro-American settlements. In the course of the nineteenth century, the violent frontier of displacement and repopulation gave way to a different type of frontier, one that blended the culture of the colonial and early republican backcountry with that of an emerging industrial society.” (John Alexander Williams, Appalachia: A History, p.81)

Geologically, Appalachia consists of five sub-regions:

“Geologists have marked off five or six different physiographic provinces within the Appalachian system: the Piedmont, the Blue Ridge, the Great Valley (and sometimes a separate “ridge-and-valley” province consisting of the Allegheny ridges and valleys that parallel the Great Valley on its northwest side), the Allegheny (or Cumberland) Mountains, and finally the Appalachian Plateau. These provinces comprise all of eastern North America’s uplands south of the Adirondacks and extend from the coastal to the interior plains.”

It is a myth that Appalachia is poor because of slavery: the most prosperous era in Appalachian history was the antebellum era, and Appalachia’s economic development was on par with the rest of the South until about 1850:

“The succeeding era, extending variously from the 1760s in the Valley of Virginia to the late antebellum period in the Allegheny and Cumberland plateaus, constitutes the second phase. During this period, Euro-American and African-American labor established the farm-and-forest economy of what might be called classical Appalachia and made it the region’s most prosperous era relative to other parts of the nation.”

Here’s a straightforward account of how Euro-American settlers, overwhelmingly Scots-Irish, English, Scots and Germans, arrived in Appalachia, displaced the Indians, and repopulated the region between 1730 and 1830:

“The era typically defined as the age of the frontier and settlement in Appalachia was actually an era of displacement and repopulation. There were four geographic phases of this process during the roughly one hundred years after 1730. The first phase extended from 1730 to 1763 and involved Appalachian Pennsylvania and Maryland, western parts of Virginia, specifically the Great Valley, the adjacent parallel valleys of the Greenbriar and Upper Potomac, and a fringe of territory along the Monogahela and Ohio Rivers in what is now West Virginia. The second phase was completed by 1789 and planted Euro-American settlements in upper East Tennessee, northwestern North Carolina, northwestern South Carolina, and the central part of Kentucky.  Between 1790 and 1820, repopulation proceeded in the Allegheny and Cumberland plateaus of southern West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southeastern Ohio, plus the Great Valley in middle East Tennessee and the Blue Ridge and adjacent foothills territory in western North Carolina. The final displacement and repopulation came between 1820 and 1840, when the Cherokee nation was expelled from its lands in southwestern North Carolina, southeastern Tennessee, north Georgia, and both the Great Valley and Cumberland plateau lands of northeast Alabama.”

The Germans arrived early in both Virginia and the Carolina backcountry:

“In Virginia, many of the earliest valley settlers called “Dutch” were actually “Switzers,” that is, natives of the German Protestant cantons of Switzerland. In South Carolina, some 3,700 German immigrants entered the colony between 1748 and 1759, almost all of them arriving through the port of Charleston. Roughly a third of these came in a single year, 1752, from the southwest German province of Württemberg. The majority clustered in compact settlements in the Broad and Saluda valleys in the north central part of the province, away from both the Cherokee path and the road leading northward to Pennsylvania. …In contrast with Pennsylvania, there is no record of hostility between English and German speakers in the Carolinas, nor did English settlers already planted in a district abandon it when Germans moved in.”

The Scots-Irish poured into the Southern backcountry through the Great Valley from Pennsylvania after the 1730s:

“In Virginia, Irish Protestants poured into the middle and upper reaches of the Shenandoah Valley, beginning in the 1730s. ..

In the Carolinas, the Irish settled in enclaves interspersed among German enclaves in the valleys of the Yadkin and Catawba Rivers in North Carolina as well as in the Waxhaws … An analysis of names recorded in the 1790 census discloses that 18.9 percent of the population of South Carolina was Scots-Irish, 17.8 percent of Tennessee’s, 16.5 percent of Kentucky’s, 15.1 percent of Pennsylvania’s, 12.2 percent of Georgia’s, and 11.7 percent of Virginia’s, compared with 10.1 percent of the overall US population. It should be kept in mind that Ulster immigration resumed after the Revolution and reached its peak after 1815.”

“Greater Appalachia” would later extend all the way to eastern New Mexico:

“The backcountry migration was one of the great folk movements in American history. To accommodate it, the Warrior’s Path of the Great Valley became a Great Trail, then a Great Wagon Road connecting Pennsylvania with the South. At its Southern end it was known as the Philadelphia Road, in Pennsylvania as the Virginia Road. Where it forked in the Roanoke section of the Great Valley , the southwestern branch became the Wilderness Road, while the Southern branch became the Carolina Road.”

The southern and northern ends of Appalachia were secured as part of the American Revolution when the Cherokee and the Iroquois sided with Great Britain and were defeated by the Continental Army.
