  • 'All religions are born from a false principle... Filled with the will for power, the voices of God (conniving priests) forged irons in which to chain men. And men, stupefied by their misery, willingly believed everything told them. Can religion, sprung from such motives, win our respect? Is there a single religion which does not bear the mark of falsehood and lies? What do we find in them: mysteries that cause reason to shudder; dogmas that outrage nature; and ceremonies that inspire only disgust and derision! Tell me, how can a reasonable man still believe the obscure words of Christianity, and her false miracles? Who was this leprous Jew, born of wanton and a soldier in the meanest place possible? Who appointed him the mouthpiece of the said creator of the world? What were his titles? What did he do to prove his mission? Did he change the face of the earth; did he destroy the plagues that afflict it; did he curb the viciousness that make it foul; are we any more happy? Then what did he do? Through jugglers' tricks and puns this man announces himself to the world. And to whom? -only to menials and slaves and sluts this ruler of Heaven manifests his greatness... I would rather die a thousand times than fall for such a tripe!'

  • 'Doomed o'er the world's precarious scene to sweep,
    Swift as the tempest travels on the deep,
    To know Delight but by her parting smile,
    And toil, and wish, and weep a little while;
    Then melt, ye elements, that formed in vain
    This troubled pulse and visionary brain!
    Fade, ye wild flowers, memorials of my doom,
    And sink, ye stars, that light me to the tomb!
    Truth, ever lovely, since the world began,
    The foe of tyrants, and the friend of
    -Thomas Campbell, Scottish poetry

I need not look beyond this room to see all the liars, haters, the killers, the crooks, the paranoid cowards-truly trematodes of the Earth, each one in his own legal profession... And no one knows that better than those who kill for policy, clandestinely or openly, as do the governments of the world, which kill in the name of God and country or for whatever reason they deem appropriate... I don't need to hear all of society's rationalizations... I've heard them all before and the fact remains that what is, is. You don't understand me. You are not expected to. You are not capable of it.'
    -Richard Ramirez, the so-called 'Night Stalker,' when asked if he had anything to say before his sentence for 12 first degree murder counts, replied with the above. He was given twelve death sentences. And in case you are wondering, trematodes are a type of parasite.

  • 'For four months I was heavily tortured by the Army in Rio de Janeiro, and then in the Naval Information Center.... Near death, I was taken to the hospital for the sixth time. The beatings had been so severe that my body was one big bruise. The blood clotted under my skin and all the hair on my body fell out. They pulled out all my fingernails. They poked needles through my sexual organs and used a rope to drag me across the floor by my testicles. Right afterwards they hung me upside down. They hung me handcuffed from a grating, removed my artificial leg, and tied my penis so I could not urinate. They forced me to stand on my one leg for three days without food or drink. They gave me so many drugs that my eardrums burst and I am impotent. They nailed my penis to a table for 24 hours. They tied me up like a pig and threw me into a pool so that I nearly drowned. They put me in a completely dark cell where I remained for 30 days urinating and defecating in the same place where I had to sleep. They fed me only bread soaked in water. They put me in a rubber box and turned on a siren. For three days I neither ate nor slept and I nearly went mad...'

  • 'Occultism is not magic, though magic is one of its tools.
    Occultism is not the acquirement of powers, whether psychic or intellectual, though both are its servants. Neither is occultism the pursuit of happiness, as men understand the word; for the first step is sacrifice, the second, renunciation.
    Occultism is the science of life, the art of living.'

  • 'Mein Kampf was like finding a part of me... I simply suffered from the vague, unhappy feeling that things were 'wrong' - I didn't know exactly how - and that there must be a way of diagnosing the 'disease' and its causes - and making intelligent, organized efforts to correct that 'something wrong'.
    In Mein Kampf I found abundant 'mental sunshine' which bathed all the grey world suddenly in the clear light of reason and understanding. Word after word, sentence after sentence stabbed in the darkness like thunderclaps and lightning bolts of revelation, tearing and ripping away the cobwebs of more than thirty years of darkness - brilliantly illuminating the 'mysteries' of the heretofore impenetrable murk in a world gone mad.'

  • 'The U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey, which interviewed 700 Japanese military and political officials after the war came to this conclusion: "Based on a detailed investigation of all the facts and supported by the testimony of the surviving Japanese leaders involved, it is the Survey's opinion that certainly prior to 31 December 1945, and in all probability prior to 1 November 1945, Japan would have surrendered even if the atomic bombs had not been dropped, even if Russia had not entered the war, and even if no invasion had been planned or contemplated.'

  • 'There is nothing more wicked, more disastrous, more widely destructive, more deeply tenacious, more loathsome.'

  • 'If an American is concerned only about his nation, he will not be concerned about the peoples of Asia, Africa, or South America.

    -Martin Luther King, Jr.

  • 'The preoccupation with animal protection in Nazi Germany was evident in other social institutions and continued almost until the end of World War II. In 1934, the new government hosted an international conference on animal protection in Berlin. Over the speaker's podium, surrounded by enormous swastikas, were the words "Entire epochs of love will be needed to repay animals for their value and service". In 1936 the German Society for Animal Psychology was founded, and in 1938 animal protection was accepted as a subject to be studied in German public schools and universities.'

  • 'I have chosen the struggle,
    Have bound myself to it,
    Will stay faithful to it,
    Until earth covers me.
    That they may kill my friends

    Is also possible.
    That we should capitulate:
    Never, never, never!'
    -Adolf Hitler, this poem was reprinted in the 'Mulhausen Tageblatt' on July 15, 1944. It was originally written by Hitler in 1932.

  • '1918
         You stood, with your shot, shattered arm in a sling, the gray helmet on your battered head, your chest covered in iron crosses, you stood in front of placid burghers, taking the oral examination for your high-school degree. Because you did not know a few figures, they decreed that you should not pass.
         Our answer: Revolution!

         The two of us were about to surrender to a mental breakdown. But we straightened up with one another's help and we barely stumbled.
         My answer was: Defiance!

         You challenged your destiny to a duel. All or nothing! But it was still too early. That was why you fell victim.
         Your answer was: Death!

         I stood at your grave; a quiet, green mound lay in the glowing sunshine. And it preached ephemeralness.
         My answer was: Resurrection.'

    [Leon Degrelle]

  • 'Hitler is always present before my eyes: as a man of peace in 1936, as a man of war in 1944. It is not possible to have been a personal witness to the life of such an extraordinary man without being marked by it forever. Not a day goes by but Hitler rises again in my memory, not as a man long dead, but as a real being who paces his office floor, seats himself in his chair, pokes the burning logs in the fireplace.'
    -Leon Degrelle, 'The Enigma of Hitler', Leader of Walloonian SS volunteers (Walloonian's are French speaking people of Belgium)

  • 'After 1945 Hitler was accused of every cruelty, but it was not in his nature to be cruel. He loved children. It was an entirely natural thing for him to stop his car and share his food with young cyclists along the road. Once he gave his raincoat to a derelict plodding in the rain. At midnight he would interrupt his work and prepare the food for his dog Blondi. He could not eat meat, because it meant the death of a living creature...'
    -Leon Degrelle, 'The Enigma of Hitler'

  • 'Adolf Hitler

    I'm not worthy to speak up for Adolf Hitler, and to any sentimental rousing his life and deeds do not invite.

    Hitler was a warrior, a warrior for humankind and a preacher of the gospel of justice for all nations.

    He was a reforming character of the highest order, and his historical fate was that he functioned in a time of exampleless [unequalled] brutality, which in the end felled him.

    Thus may the ordinary Western European look at Adolf Hitler. And we, his close followers, bow our heads at his death...'

  • 'He once said: "I wish nothing on my gravestone other than my name." Even his name will probably not stand over his grave, for we know that he must have perished while fighting bitterly in the Reich Chancellery. We know that the enemy will be able to find a body in the ruins caused by countless artillery shells and flame throwers, and that they may say that it is the Führer's body, but we will not believe it. If the enemy says that, we will not believe it. That his body is dead we believe, what is mortal of him has perished, has passed away, but he has fulfilled his most beautiful oath, this affirmation: "The most valuable thing God has given me on this world is my people. My faith rests on it, I serve it with my will, and I give my life to it."
    His life is fulfilled. He began by fighting for his people, and he ended that way. A life of battle.'

  • 'Everything on this earth can be made into something better. Every defeat may be made the foundation of a future victory. Every lost war may be the cause of a later resurgence.

  • 'Our god is the wonderful law of creation, whose amazing unity of all things shows itself in wonderful flowers, in growing trees, in newborn children, in the secrets of a mother, in the growth of our people, in work and accomplishment and creation, in life itself. It is the joy we have in everything. How beautiful everything is. Do you feel the same way? I am so happy to be alive. A priest recently asked me: "But what about eternity...?" I replied: "A day in National Socialist Germany is better for me than all of your Heaven."'
    -Robert Ley, from a speech entitled 'Wir oder die Juden...,' March 31, 1939

  • 'What happens to me when I die? I do not know. One thing I do know. I will return to the earth and will belong again to the wonderful Mother Earth. Isn't that enough? If only a blade of grass or a flower grows from my grave, that is enough for me. I am happy with what I have done so far. It was both hard and beautiful, and I am thankful for these 48 years. And if I remain alive long enough to finish my work, I can die in peace. Death will hold no terrors for me. I have seen many people for whom it was hard to die. I am sure that we will die in a worthy manner. I hope to have the strength not to die like a weakling, rather to die with the satisfaction of knowing I have done something. Eternity? I do not want to live forever, but I want my people to live on eternally.'

This speech was delivered before the General Conference of the National Alliance in Arlington, Virginia on Sunday, September 4, 1983. A little over a year later, December 8, 1984, Robert Jay Mathews was burned to death by a secret police task force on Whidbey Island, Washington.

  • [Below are the last words of those hung in Nuremberg, Germany by the Allies. The executions began at 1:11 a.m. on the 16th of October 1946 and ended at 2:45 a.m. A travesty of justice and a spectacle of revenge, men like Alfred Rosenberg were hanged for writing a book!]

    Joachim von Ribbentrop last words were: 'God protect Germany! My last wish is that German unity shall remain and that an understanding between east and west come about, with peace for the world.'


    General Wilhelm Keitel stood at attention at the foot of the gallows and said: 'May the Almighty have mercy on the German people! More than three million soldiers died for the fatherland and preceded me. I now follow my sons. All for Germany!'


    Ernst Kaltenbrunner said: 'I have loved the German people and my fatherland from the bottom of my heart. I have done my duties according to the laws of my country. I regret that crimes were committed in which I had no part. Germany-good luck!'


    Alfred Rosenberg remained silent in contempt of the murderous ritual. He mounted the scaffold and died without uttering a word.


    Hans Frank said: 'I pray God may receive my soul. May he receive me mercifully. I am grateful for the good treatment I had in prison.'


    Wilhelm Frick shouted: 'Long live eternal Germany!'


    Julius Streicher, executed soley for thought crimes, was dragged to the gallows. When he reached it he shouted defiantly: 'Heil Hitler!' As he mounted the scaffold he cried 'Jewish holiday 1946! Now I go to God! The Bolsheviks will hang you next!'


    Fritz Saukel said: 'I die innocent. The verdict was unjust. God protect Germany and make her great again!'


    Alfred Jodl clicked his heels and stood at attention when he mounted the scaffold, proclaiming one last word of love for his country and people: 'I salute you, my Germany!


    And lastly, Arthur Seyss-Inquart was the last to be murdered. Knowing this, he said: 'I hope this execution will be the last act in the tragedy of the Second World War, that its lesson will be learned, and that peace and understanding will follow. I believe in Germany!'

    -August Kubizek, 'The Young Hitler I Knew' (pg.42). Words prophetic of the greatest genius of our times. It's not surprising that Adolf Hitler would die nearly penniless some decades later. He never allowed himself to be paid as leader of Greater Germany, feeling that it was an honor, and one shouldn't be paid for such. Even as the most powerful man in Europe, or the world for that matter, he lived frugally. Although the book sales of Mein Kampf were substantial, he gave most of it to the Nazi party and Germany.

During the day I was out, mostly, with Rifle Regiment 4, or at meetings or lectures with some other army unit, etc. Only at night I slept in my quarters. As I used to wake up in the morning before five o' clock, I had gotten into the habit of throwing pieces of bread or hard crusts to the little mice which spent their time in the small room, and then to watch these droll little animals romp and scuffle for these few delicacies. I had already known so much misery in my lifetime that I was able to imagine only too well the hunger, and therefore also the pleasure, of the little things.'
