William Luther Pierce
September 11, 1933 - July 23, 2002
The sad news has reached us of the death of Dr. William
Pierce one of the most articulate writers and broadcasters
and inspirational thinkers in American politics. His writings
on a stance highlighting the failures of multiculturalism
earned him both respect from patriots around the world
and hostility from the American established media.
Dr. William Pierce - hard talking American patriot, RIP.
A highly intelligent man he achieved a masters and a
doctorate in physics from the University of Colorado,
after earning an undergraduate degree at Rice University
and briefly taking graduate classes at Cal Tech. He then
taught physics at Oregon State University from 1962-1966.
Alongside his work in education he became interested in
the political system, in the history of European culture
and began to question why the people of European descent
who had created the United States had begun to lose control
of their destiny and lose control of their status in society.
A parallel situation is happening in the countries of
western Europe today, with a mass influx of refugees and
a political system that encourages positive discrimination.
After brief periods in organisations which Pierce dismissed
as immature he created a new movement called the National
Alliance, headquartered in the US capital Washington D.C.
The National Alliance quickly began publishing a magazine
for sale to the general public called 'Attack!' A hard
hitting publication with an uncompromising title it echoed
the period in the States of street protest during the
Vietnam conflict and the civil rights marches.Once it
was clear that this era was over, Pierce declared a change
of tactics, but not strategy, and renamed the magazine
'National Vanguard.' NV was a more sophisticated magazine,
designed to appeal to the professionals and others that
Pierce felt were needed to build a revolutionary organization.
In 1985, Pierce moved the Alliance from Washington to
a 400-acre parcel of land in Mill Point, West Virginia,
near Hillsboro. In one of the most isolated, mountainous
and unpopulated regions east of the Mississippi the Alliance
was free to grow without the problems of living in the
crime-ridden concrete jungle of Washington.
Pierce and the NA began a large number of ambitious projects
designed to spread their message, attract new members
and raise money to fund their work. Most projects were
an ingenious combination of outreach and fundraising.
National Vanguard Books, Inc. was started while still
in D.C. to sell a wide variety of books important to people
of European origin. In West Virginia NVB grew very quickly
with hundreds of titles, a yearly catalogue and ever-increasing
sales that required the building of a new warehouse.
Pierce also began a weekly broadcast called American
Dissident Voices. At first a number of people, most notably
Kevin Strom, wrote and broadcast the half-hour addresses
but eventually the task fell solely to Pierce. The Alliance
arranged contracts with a large number of AM and FM stations
and also broadcast on Short-wave radio. However, the ADV
address is now mainly a product of the Internet and tens
of thousands of people each week either read or listen
to it on the Internet or receive it in the mail as the
publication 'Free Speech.'
Dr Pierce had a high regard for the British National
Party, although we always differed from him in a number
of fields, particularly our long-term commitment to electioneering
and the democratic process. He no doubt regarded us as
'soft' and we in turn agreed with the admission he made
to the author of his biography, 'The Fame of a Dead Man's
Deeds', that his brutally frank rhetoric and prescriptions
were "self-indulgent." That said, even as our
paths diverged, we retained our admiration for his razor-sharp
mind, his dedication, his capacity for hard work and his
For many years Dr. Pierce worked a grueling 12-14 hr
day in his mountain base and when he was diagnosed with
cancer earlier this month and hospitalised he stoically
chose to return to his home in West Virginia on Saturday
He died at about 12 midday on July 23rd 2002.
The death of Dr. Pierce has opened a huge gap in the
nationalist movement in
the United States. We hope for the sake of the future
generations of white
children for whom he felt so strongly that it will not
be filled by crude inferior copies of William Pierce -
the man was unique! For several years, he had said that
the time was coming when a less blunt, more populist approach
could bear fruit in the USA. One of his unrealised projects
in that direction was the establishment of a mass circulation
newspaper which would present the Alliance message in
terms more on the wavelength of the 'Ordinary Joe'. More
recently, there had also been signs that his Resistance
operation was moving away from the excessive negativity
of the music scene which it had moved into, and was beginning
to push for a more positive message and image.
We hope that those who are left, at such short notice,
to carry on his work, will find ways to combine the principles
for which Dr Pierce stood so firmly with tactical approaches
which allow the white survival movement in the USA to
take full advantage of the impending collapse of the liberal
consensus and the pressures caused by the globalisation
of the US economy. We all face increasingly "interesting
times" - if this World can be seen from the battlements
at Valhalla, Dr. Pierce will be watching and analysing
with his dry sense of humour and his burning love for
