The staff here at Whitelaw Towers have noticed that there has been some awfully torrid sexual innuendo floating about recently. Indeed, White Nationalist circles are awash with a number of very odd rumours regarding the repressed (homo-)sexuality of some of its leading proponents. It may seem extremely unlikely that these tales are true, but who’s to say? Certainly, an obsessive preoccupation with racial purity often goes hand-in-hand with another regarding sexual hygiene. Hitler himself was a sexual pervert of some renown.
Of course, at Whitelaw Towers, we merely report.
In that spirit we offer the following for your edification, taken from David Greason’s book “I was a teenage fascist”.
The talk was full of backslapping and in-jokes, poetic parodies of far-right fantasies (‘If the Sons of Zion get up your nostrils/Just holler for Duke and his Crusading Apostles. He’ll get those niggers off your streets/Just put on your hoods, and your white bedsheets.’), and lots and lots and lots of boys will be boys comforters, with their references to homosexuality. Again, there were songs for this. ‘Oh I wish I was in the land of cotton/up some southern boy’s bottom…’
One member, who was indisputably heterosexual, had a theory that the degenerate aspects of homosexuality (liberal politics, disco) were only recent, and that its Grecian manifestations on the battlefield were noble and Aryan. That was another piece of wisdom I took on board. Virtually all the members had their own stories of near-seductions bravely fought off. [Jim Saleam’s] involved a breadknife, a hand in the wrong place and a former leader of the [National Socialist Party of Australia]. Nationalist politics did indeed have its risks.
It should be pointed out that there was a disproportionate number of homosexuals in the NSPA, a couple of whom were in the Alliance. The same went for drug dealers. And prostitutes, for that matter. A couple of them would work the streets occasionally to raise funds for the party, although one suspects the bulk of their working time would have been taken up by raising funds for their husbands. Party business could always wait. No one really seemed to mind such pursuits at the end of the day, although there was a lot of sniggering. It appeared to be acceptable if you were a colorful enough character. One of our national executive members was reputed to have been a kept boy in his late teens, which only added to his popularity – again it separated the Alliance men from the League of Rights boys or whatever.
It was more accommodated than condoned, yet the assumption was that there was something both attractive and revolting about the sexually unorthodox: the ideal National Alliance sexual act would no doubt have involved the member reflecting on the hopelessness of bourgeois liberal society while being blown by a forty-dollar junkie whore. Such liberalism wasn’t to be found in party policy, however. Homosexual rights were yet another manifestation of the liberal death-wish. I really didn’t think it was any of our business, and at least in the Alliance there were members who would agree with me, that is, if any of us were brave enough to express such an opinion seriously. I mean, it could happen to the best of us.
In reference to the sexually unorthodox, we note with some concern that the impostors at “Whitetrash Sewers” recently chose to promote the views of fellow White Nationalist Kevin Alfred Strom, a man sentenced in April 2008 to 23 months in prison for possession of child pornography. And as with FDB everything they have said will be around as long as this blog survives.
Embarrassed at their promotion of a man with such a sordid past, “Whitetrash Sewers” removed the post in question when the facts of his horrible record were finally brought to their attention. Sadly, “Whitetrash Sewers” failed to provide any explanation for their sudden reversal. Are they truly that ignorant of the glorious history of White Nationalism? For their own sake’s, the answer must be ‘Yes’.
We were also bemused to discover that the authors of “Whitetrash Sewers” have recently become fashion critics, cattily attacking actresses Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sarah Jessica Parker and pop stars Pink, Lady Gaga and Amy Winehouse (a “well fed Israeli Princess who’s been living off Goyim children’s blood and Palestinian body parts since childhood”) for their bad fashion sense and, well, Jewishness.
The staff here at Whitelaw Towers can only assume that the inhabitants of “Whitetrash Sewers” are beauteous and lovely youth. And who knows, perhaps this story will have a happy ending after all…
Neo-Nazi Gay Love Blooms in Brotherhood
The Village Voice
August 4, 2010
The Danish film Brotherhood, which won “Best Film” at last year’s Rome International Film Festival, arrives with a scenario that makes it easy to dismiss: Two young men, both members of a neo-Nazi street gang, fall in love. Sounds trashy, sounds silly, but first-time director Nicolo Donato, who wrote the screenplay with Rasmus Birch, and a superb ensemble refuse to wink, resulting in a film that constantly subverts expectation. Recently dismissed from the Danish army, 22-year-old Lars (Thure Lindhardt) falls in with a small gang of ultra-nationalist thugs whose leader (Nicolas Bro) sees potential in the smart, literate Lars. Eventually, Lars is sent to live with Jimmy (David Dencik), the leader’s brooding second-in-command, in a small house he’s remodeling for one of the group’s rich patrons. And there, as promised, the two men slowly fall in love. This still sounds like a potboiler, but here’s the thing: What lingers in the mind about Brotherhood isn’t the details of the plot but the soulful tension between Lars and Jimmy, whose merest glance at one another is a complex mix of passion, need, and fear. These guys are bigoted and violent, and don’t in any way deserve redemption, but you may find yourself hoping that they find it anyway.
Ageing idealists begin to see vultures
The Sydney Morning Herald
June 26, 2010
A humanist body believes it is under threat from opportunists, writes Andrew Stevenson.
WHAT do the Henry George Foundation, the Blavatsky Lodge of the Theosophical Society, the British-Israel World Federation and NSW Humanist Society have in common? Ageing memberships, open doors and very, very valuable assets.
The Georgists are still trying to remake the world according to the model described by a 19th century economist; the Theosophists aim to ”form a nucleus of the Universal Brotherhood of Humanity without distinction of race, creed, sex, caste or colour”; the British-Israelites reckon Anglo-Saxon-Celtic people are the true descendants of the Israelites of the Holy Bible; and the Humanists battle to present an ethical, secular approach to life based on compassion and tolerance.
But the NSW Humanist Society, according to one member, is actually battling for its very existence, having been ”infiltrated by racist groups”.
It started with Humanist House, a small but valuable property in Chippendale, just off Broadway, which the society hires out to a plethora of activist groups for public meetings.
For years one customer was the Public Information Forum – which has recently been turfed out and accused of links with the Ku Klux Klan and other racist outfits.
But it retains a foot in the door. One of its members, Mark Pavic, is now a Humanist vice-president. At least ”until they execute me”, he says.
Humanist Fred Flatow accuses the PIF of seeking control of Humanist House in order to ”sell it or put it to uses most of us would be alarmed by”.
”The infiltrators are very disciplined and vote as a bloc; they are playing for keeps,” Mr Flatow writes to members. ”They are not amenable to persuasion to desist. They have to be voted out!”
Mr Pavic concedes a few things. The PIF does contain fringe left and right-wingers, he says, and, while emphatic that he is no Nazi (”I have Jewish friends; I even had a Jewish girlfriend”), he does acknowledge some in the PIF have been ”metaphorical swastika armband wearers”.
”They [the Humanists] found a couple of PIF people who are dabblers in pretend-Nazism so they branded us all as fascists,” said Mr Pavic, 51.
Nazism is not the only dirt being dished.
Also raised is Mr Pavic’s conviction for the manslaughter of his mother in 1985.
At the trial he confessed to tying bricks to his mother Danijela’s body and tossing her into Lake Burley Griffin after she died suddenly during an argument.
”They can bring it up; it’s not relevant,” Mr Pavic says now.
In fact Mr Pavic – who insists he is a humanist – says the controlling group, headed by the society’s president, John August, is actually the real enemy as its members are beholden to the Secular Party, who themselves have taken over the society.
The NSW Humanists have an ageing and declining membership and so little money they have considered obtaining a reverse mortgage to stay afloat. But they do have Humanist House, worth well in excess of $1 million.
Ripe pickings for a takeover. ”There’s a lot of this going on,” Mr Pavic says. ”They have declining memberships and they have real estate they bought many years ago which is extremely valuable. There are people who join committees with an eye on the money.”
It has even happened a couple of times when Mr Pavic has been around. Two organisations, the Henry George and British-Israel foundations, found themselves mired in long and costly court action with Mr Pavic peripherrally involved, although he inssits he has always been a campaigner for the defence.
The Humanists, distracted from their true business, are optimistic they will ”weather the storm”, John August writes. ”It is a case of battening down the hatches … nevertheless, it is an object lesson of what can happen to an incorporated association when it is infiltrated by an outside group.”
