Storm, Break Loose!

American Dissident Voices Broadcast of April 8, 2000
by Dr. William Pierce


Let’s talk more today about a question that listeners have raised
repeatedly: What can I do for my people? What can I do to fight my
people’s enemies?

If you’ve been listening to these American Dissident Voices programs for
a while, you know that more than anything else I have urged people to
stop being spectators and become participants in the historical process.
If you don’t like what’s being done to our society, to our world, then
get off the sidelines and get out on the field. Don’t just sit there and
complain quietly to your friends. Do something!

The fact that not as many people as I would like have responded to this
urging is not entirely due to cowardice or laziness. Most Americans are
very much constrained by their need to earn a living. Relatively few
have complete freedom of action. If they are to join the fight they need
specific and practical suggestions as to what they can do — and still
earn a living. So today I want to make one or two such suggestions.

First, I want to warn everyone as strongly as possible: whatever you do,
be certain that it is legal. There is very little in the way of illegal
activity that is likely to be productive at this time anyway. Believe
me, I understand the frustration, especially in our young men, when we
see what’s happening around us and feel an almost irresistible urge to
strike back. But for now, let’s stay away from the bombs and machine
guns, There’s much else which must be done before we can use those
weapons effectively. We don’t need those things quite yet. Conditions
are not such that we can use them effectively, so let’s just forget
about them for the time being. If you want to collect weapons or
practice with weapons, keep your weapons legal. There are plenty of
legal things that can be done now that are effective, and very few
illegal things. And when we make a decision about what to do, it should
be based on considerations of effectiveness, not on how big a splash
it’ll make on the evening news.

As I said a moment ago, the biggest constraint on most of our people is
their need to earn a living. Anyone who is employed by a company which
is determined to stay on the good side of the government and the media
is in an especially delicate position. Even those of our people who are
in business for themselves often are dependent on good relations with
the public and can be driven into bankruptcy if attacked by the media.
The first thing for every person to do is make a realistic evaluation of
his situation. If you’re a policeman or an employee of a big insurance
company, then there may be a concerted effort to have you fired if you
say or do anything Politically Incorrect. You may get the John Rocker
treatment by the media.

Of course, you may have the law on your side. You may be able to sue
your employer if he tries to fire you . The way the judicial system
works in this country, however, that may be a frustrating and
disappointing endeavor. It is set up to favor the litigant who has the
most money to spend on lawyers, not the litigant who’s in the right. You
may want to go ahead and sue anyway, but most people would prefer not to
be obliged to take that course.

So, the thing to do is either arrange to have an income that can’t be
threatened by the self-appointed guardians of Political Correctness, in
which case you can do whatever you want to do, or you can remain under
the thumb of the system and act with circumspection. But regardless of
which choice you make, the important thing is to act.

I’ve been looking for ways to facilitate the first choice: giving people
who want to be activists an opportunity to do so by making it possible
for them to support themselves independently of the system. Here’s a
specific example: I recently bought a couple of record companies which
specialize in what is known as “resistance music.” That’s music that
has a pro-White or pro-European-American message — or an anti-system
message. It’s been essentially “underground” music for a long time,
composed and performed and distributed by amateurs on a part-time basis.
The Jewish media bosses would like to keep it that way, but my aim is to
professionalize it and mainstream it. I want to distribute enough of it
so that the people who compose it and perform it can become
professionals, can actually make a living at it. I believe that there’s
a huge, untapped market for resistance music.. Most Americans have never
heard any resistance music. They’ve heard it denounced as “hate music”
by the Jewish media, but they’ve not actually heard it performed. I
believe that many White Americans will like it when they hear it. If
you’d like to hear some of it yourself, go to my web site at

Anyway, if I’m successful in mainstreaming resistance music, it has the
potential for becoming a substantial industry employing at least a few
thousand people. And that’s just one example of what I have in mind. As
discontent with the government in America grows, as discontent with
uncontrolled immigration and other government policies grows, as
discontent with the bias and lies of the controlled media grows, there
will be many other opportunities for new industries which are
independent of the system. And if these new industries have a policy of
employing people who are willing to be activists in the cause of freeing
America and preserving the future of White Americans, they can open up
possibilities for many other people. And I hardly need to tell you, I’m
not the only one who can do this sort of thing. In fact, I’ve never
thought of myself as a businessman or an entrepreneur. If I can do it,
anybody can do it. A lot of you ought to be thinking along these lines.
If you believe that you were cut out to be an entrepreneur, then be an
entrepreneur for a worthwhile cause, and help free others to do what
they ought to do.

That’s one side of the coin. The other side — and at this time it’s the
more important side — is what you can do, with circumspection, right
where you are. And let me tell you, there’s no one, and I mean , no one,
who can’t take some effective action on behalf of our people, no matter
how sensitive his position. I don’t care whether you work inside the
White House with a Top Secret security clearance, or you’re on the staff
of the rottenest politician in the Congress, or even if you’re the token
Gentile in some Jewish law firm: if you’re really concerned about your
people, about your race, you can take effective action without your
family ending up starving on the street. All you really need, in
addition to average intelligence and an average amount of initiative, is
to have your priorities right — to understand that there is nothing
more important than the future of our people, nothing — and to feel a
sense of personal responsibility for what is happening to our world, to
our civilization, to our race.

Now a few specific suggestions: I believe that the most important thing
for responsible people to do is to speak out, to stop being silent. Many
of our people are afraid that if they let it be known what they are
thinking, their lives will be ruined. In most cases that isn’t true.
What each of us must do is evaluate his own situation realistically, to
think about only the real dangers and not the imaginary dangers, and
then speak out just as strongly as he can in his circumstances. In order
to survive it is not necessary, in most cases, to persuade everyone
around us that we are Politically Correct. We can say things which are
not Politically Correct and still survive. We always should use good
judgment, of course, and consider the effect of our words on others. But
when we believe that we are right, we must not let ourselves be
intimidated into silence. It is our responsibility to push the envelope,
to take a chance on saying too much rather than saying too little.

And taking a chance does not mean talking just to your personal friends
who already agree with you. It does not mean raging anonymously in some
Internet discussion group. It means standing up and saying to the
public: “This is my name. This is what I believe.”

I’ll read you a letter that was published just a few days ago in the
Russellville, Arkansas, Courier, the local newspaper there. The writer
of the letter, Billy Roper, is a personal friend of mine and a member of
my organization, the National Alliance. He also is a high school history
teacher in Russellville. He wrote his letter in response to an editorial
by the typically liberal editor of the newspaper. The liberal editor had
criticized Atlanta Braves pitcher John Rocker for expressing his
distaste for the “diversity” of New York City. In response Billy Roper
wrote, and I quote:

“In his editorial of March 4, the editor writes that John Rocker should
read Jewess Emma Lazarus’ paean to the colonization of America by the
Third World: ‘send me your tired, your poor, your wretched refuse’
yearning for their first welfare check. In reality the United States was
founded by White men for the express purpose of securing the blessings
of liberty for themselves and their offspring, not the offspring of
Africa or Asia or Mexico. What Mr. Rocker failed to realize but the
editor clearly illustrates is that Whites are not allowed to criticize
the new multicultural wonderland of diversity so long as Ms. Lazarus’
tribe dominates the mass media and government of this country. Instead,
Whites are ordered to be tolerant of the fact that, as President Clinton
bragged in his recent State of the Union address, we will be a minority
in this country within a generation.

“The country is being turned over to those who never could have created
it. Is an America which is more like Mexico or Ethiopia a better
America? Is an America where those who created this country have become
a minority a worthy destiny? Is John Rocker the only American who is
upset by the fact that the United States is becoming just another Third
World cesspool?

“Not by a long shot. We have enough tired and enough poor and enough
wretched refuse already. It’s time to tear down Emma Lazarus’ sign and
put up a fence instead.”

Well, that was my friend Billy Roper’s letter which was printed in the
Russellville Courier last month. He could have said a lot more, of
course. He could have expressed himself much more strongly. But in view
of the very general, mainstream, brainwashed nature of his audience, he
chose his words pretty well — well enough, anyway, to provide
encouragement to many other White men and women who believe as we do but
who have been too timid to speak out. The editor of the Russellville
Courier hated him for it, of course, and responded to Billy’s letter
with a snide remark. All of the other liberals who read the Courier also
hated him for expressing himself as he did. These days a man cannot act
honorably and responsibly without being hated for it. Any man who is not
hated is a shirker; he’s not doing what he should be doing.

Anyway, the important thing is that my friend Billy Roper expressed
himself — he spoke out — and he’s still a high school history teacher,
still earning a living. The people who would like to see Billy
unemployed, who would like to see him fired from his teaching position,
are themselves afraid of exposing their beliefs to the public. What they
believe is that anyone who is Politically Incorrect should be cast into
the outer darkness, should be shunned, should starve. They are
intolerant, narrow-minded, bigoted, vicious, hateful people. And they
are cowards. They attack only in gangs. They expose themselves only when
they are sure that they will have overwhelming support. And they
understand that many ordinary citizens in Arkansas don’t believe that a
history teacher should be fired for writing a letter to a newspaper
saying the things Billy said in his letter. And they know that Billy is
a fighter, that he won’t go quietly, and so they leave him alone.

What Billy Roper did is what thousands of other high school teachers
also can do and should do. It’s what thousands of attorneys and
businessmen and factory workers and clerical workers and engineers can
and should be doing. And they can do this without destroying their
lives or their careers or their families if they use reasonably good
judgment. And you know, when you speak out, it doesn’t have to be in the
form of a letter to your newspaper. There are thousands of ways of
speaking out.

The next time you go to a PTA meeting, don’t just sit there with your
mouth shut because you’re sure that no one else will agree with you.
Speak out, and speak out strongly on the school policies you disagree
with, or make suggestions for new policies you believe the school needs.
And sure, some Politically Correct lemming will disagree with you and
will criticize you for not being Politically Correct yourself. They are
bold because they have become accustomed to speaking out without
opposition. Put up a little real opposition, and they will run for
cover. And don’t be afraid to use your head and plan your opposition
like a military tactician. Get together with four or five other people
who share your views and have them go to the meeting with you. Plan what
each of you will say. Provide the liberals with some organized and
determined opposition. It’ll be a new experience for them.

If you’re a little shy about speaking in public, just get a small group
of people together and have them listen to one of these American
Dissident Voices broadcasts in your living room. That’s a very effective
way of helping to spread the word. There are millions of our people in
America who agree with us — or who are ready to agree, if we help them
organize their thoughts. They share our feelings, share our disgust and
our horror at what is being done to our world, but they just haven’t
thought it all out and reached any conclusions about what they should
do. They haven’t put it all together yet. Their biggest obstacle is that
they believe they’re all alone. They’ve been so intimidated and beaten
down by the controlled media that they are sure no one else shares their
feelings. So they try to suppress their feelings and just blend in. They
need to be told that they’re not alone.

There’s a storm getting ready to break loose in America. America’s
internal enemies have managed to keep the lid on this storm for a long
time. They have managed to keep the millions of people who don’t agree
with them or who are agreeing with them now only because they are
confused and misled — they have managed to keep these millions of White
Americans silent and disorganized and demoralized only because they
control the mass media. They have managed to maintain an illusion of
unanimous agreement with their policies through their media control. But
the illusion is wearing thin. The Jews are flooding America with
non-White immigrants from Mexico and the Caribbean and Asia and trying
to maintain the illusion that most White Americans agree with this
policy, that it would be un-Christian or racist to disagree.

Actually, they’re doing a pretty good job of maintaining that illusion.
They are succeeding in keeping most White Americans quiet about the
immigration disaster, afraid to complain about it. They use their
control of television effectively. But that doesn’t mean that most White
Americans are happy about the destruction of their country just because
they’re staying quiet. And it’s not just the flood of immigrants which
has White Americans seething quietly. The Jews and their allies have
been bragging about how their media propaganda has gotten more Americans
to accept racial intermarriage, and how the rate of miscegenation has
climbed dramatically as a result. That’s true enough. But for every
couch potato who has let himself be persuaded that it’s all right for
his grandchildren to be mulattos, there is a White American who is angry
enough to do some serious killing of the people putting out that
poisonous propaganda.

And that’s not all, by any means. The storm is brewing. The pressure is
building. The Jews and the politicians may believe that they can keep
the lid on. They may believe that by getting laws in the United States
like they already have in Canada and Britain and many other countries,
making it illegal to write or say anything which is Politically
Incorrect — that is, anything which they can label as “hate speech” —
they can delay the storm until it is too late for us to save ourselves.
They may be right, but I don’t think so. I think that storm will come
soon enough to allow our people to redeem ourselves. I also think that
when it comes it will be violent enough to blow every last member of
their tribe to hell — and also everyone who has collaborated with them.
At least, I hope so.

But you know we mustn’t base our future on hope alone. We must act as
well. We must do whatever we can to keep the pressure building. That’s
why it’s important for all of us to speak out. We don’t want just a
blind, undirected storm. We want a purposeful storm. We must help our
people understand what is being done to them and who is doing it and
why. And we must give them a target for their rage. Above all, we must
give them courage and hope now: hope that it is possible after all for
our people to survive and the courage to do whatever is necessary to
make that possibility become reality.

And it’s not really so difficult for us to do that. All that we really
have to do is speak out, to let others know that they are not alone and
then to help them straighten out their thoughts. We need to show them
just a little bit of courage, to let them know that they too can speak
out without being punished for it. We need more people to write forceful
but intelligent letters to their local newspapers, more people to bring
their friends and neighbors and colleagues into their living rooms to
listen to one of these broadcasts. And gradually the understanding will
dawn in the minds of that portion of our people which is still healthy,
that portion which still is uncorrupted, that we are stronger than all
of our enemies. And then the storm — the great, cleansing storm — will
break loose.

Thanks for being with me again today.
