The following message was sent to me anonymously on the net. It is garbage
of course, so please don't flame me, but I thought readers of the list
would like to see how extremists are characterizing us these days. This

The Long March

by Ian P. McKinney

SINCE THE LAST ELECTION that heralded the so-called "Republican
revolution" we hear a lot of talk announcing that liberalism is dead,
or at least on its last legs. That is what well-known conservatives
like Rush Limbaugh and others would have us all believe. Yes,
listeners, all we have to do is support Newt Gingrich and, of course,
keep on buying those Rush beer steins, and hopefully, according to the
plan, when Bill Clinton is voted out of office in 1996 and after we
elect a good conservative president, then all our worries will be

Does anyone actually think that an election or two will reverse well
over fifty years of liberal and alien subversion of our government and
institutions, the moral decay, the decline of the public school
system, the out-of-control immigration, the explosion of non-White
crime, or any of the other consequences of "diversity"? The present
Republican politicians usually do not even directly address these
issues. It would not matter if the Republicans were to be elected in
large numbers for the next fifty years: these problems would obviously
continue to grow worse. Unfortunately, we've allowed ourselves to be
convinced that liberalism consists of mostly economic issues: taxes,
welfare, deficit spending, etc. The fact of the matter is that
liberalism, at its core, has little to do with economics.

The economic issues that are constantly discussed in conservative
circles are only by-products of liberalism. The foundation and
wellspring of liberalism is the fraudulent doctrine of universal human
equality. This doctrine states, in short, that a person is nothing
more than a victim of his environment, born into the world as a blank
slate. Everything that he will become, every impulse and instinct,
every talent or flaw, every like or dislike, and even his
intelligence, is solely the product of external forces and life

For example, those who believe in the doctrine of human equality state
that there is no danger to our nation from the millions of
low-intelligence, crime-prone, and violent people now immigrating to
and reproducing in our cities at astronomical rates. All that we have
to do, they say, is to make sure that these millions are guided into
some do-gooding government program, like "Head Start" or "Midnight
Basketball," and they will all eventually become engineers, doctors,
and other kinds of productive contributors to our country. And what do
conservatives say? No midnight basketball for them. But they really
aren't too different from the liberals. They say: Give these
non-Whites a good education, economic opportunity, and prayer in the
schools; and soon the Jamaican drug gang members will be
indistinguishable from Beaver Cleaver. Modern-day conservatives and
liberals both accept the liberal ideas of equality and of the
overriding importance of the individual's environment.

If individuals are born with equal potential, and what they eventually
become is determined solely by their environment, then certainly it
follows that the races are also equal. If someone was to remove an
infant from the jungles of Africa and place that child into the home
of a typical White family here in America, then according to the
theory of equality we should expect that the Black child's
intelligence and abilities would be no different than those of a
typical White child raised under similar conditions. If that African
baby had been placed in Beethoven's crib and raised identically to
him, then that child would have eventually written the Ninth Symphony.
Had that African child been placed in William Shockley's crib he would
have invented the transistor. My examples may be exaggerated, but that
really is the essence of the modern religion of equalitarianism, which
is espoused by Clinton, Gingrich, and every other politician who wants
to be elected. It is a false religion, with Communist roots, and with
no scientific basis whatever.

I have mentioned the Tanser Study on a previous American Dissident
Voices program. This study was conducted as part of the doctoral
thesis of Dr. H. A.Tanser who was Superintendent of Schools in
Chatham, Ontario, in 1939. For approximately 100 years, Chatham had
been the home of Blacks who had escaped slavery via the so-called
"Underground Railroad" of the 19th century, and their descendants. The
study's goal was to show that these Blacks, living in equal social
conditions with Whites and attending the same schools for about a
century, would have developed IQs comparable to the Whites. The
numerous other studies conducted up until that time, it was claimed,
showed lower IQs for Blacks because American Blacks had been
segregated and discriminated against for their entire lives. Chatham
was an exception to that. The findings of the Tanser study revealed
quite the opposite of those expectations, however. There was an
approximate 15 point deficit in the average Black IQ test score when
compared with the average White score: the same difference which
existed and still exists between Black and White scores in Alabama or

The previously mentioned study is only one of many dozens conducted
over the years by various private, public, and military researchers.
They are unanimous in their findings. The IQ gap is unquestionably
real. Read The Bell Curve, available from National Vanguard Books, for
an objective summary of the data. The theory of human equality has
been scientifically demonstrated again and again to be false. The
interesting question is: Why do we find so many fanatical advocates of
this thoroughly discredited theory in the academy, in the media, and
in government?

Another issue on which modern Republicans agree with Bill Clinton is
that of the wonderful benefits of Third World immigration. The
equality doctrine states that the race of an immigrant is of no
consequence. Gingrich and Limbaugh and company state that all that is
necessary is for the immigrants to be imbued with the American
culture, whatever that is, and after a sufficient period of
acclimatization, they would be functionally identical to native-born
White Americans. The Republican "revolution" has zero chance of
reversing or even slowing the browning of America.

If intelligence varies to such degrees among racial groups, then it is
logical to believe other less tangible psychological characteristics
also vary by race. I am referring to characteristics that enable a
racial group to collectively create and sustain such a unique
civilization composed of the body of art, learning, politics, social
organization, etc.: the mental characteristics comprising the natural
abilities and tendencies that exist within that racial group. It is a
synthesis of intelligence and racial "personality" that is the root
of culture.

Why does one group of people develop an advanced society, while others
remain at a savage level? Why do some races seem incapable of
developing or maintaining an advanced society even when exposed to --
and in cases actively aided by -- more advanced civilizations, while
others are able to quickly adapt outside ideas and technologies and
then go on to develop them in their own unique ways? Those are good
questions, but do not expect a rational answer from a liberal. Their
answer will be that it's "racism" and "bigotry" on the part of Whites
and in some cases Asians for the inability of Black Africa, for
example, to move much beyond the Stone Age. The glaring failure to
develop in Africa causes severe consternation among liberals, and
their shrill calls for more foreign aid, more exchange students, more
"uplift" programs, more "democracy," ad infinitum, are simply
desperate efforts to cover for the total intellectual bankruptcy of
the equality doctrine. For an equalitarian to face the fact that
an endless supply of money and assistance will not bring any lasting
improvement to a place like Africa would destroy his belief system and
would require a massive philosophical reassessment.

The deteriorating social conditions that are occurring in the United
States and the rest of the White world are the direct results of an
insane immigration policy and the tremendous birthrate of the
non-Whites already here. Both of these have their roots in the
doctrine of equality. How did this doctrine become the state religion
of the new rulers of America? Our ancestors 100 years ago certainly
never believed in such nonsense. What happened? To answer that
question, we must travel back those 100 years and examine the career
of one Franz Boas, whom the liberal intellectual establishment regards
with almost religious reverence. Boas was an academic with Communist
sympathies, and was actually cited by the United States Congress for
over 40 different Communist affiliations.

Communist strategy in the United States during the early part of this
century included what they called "the long march through the
institutions." This meant that Communists and sympathizers would
infiltrate and gain positions of influence in as many important
American organizations as possible; including churches, clubs, social
organizations, service groups, government departments, the legal
profession, and especially schools and colleges. In the event of a
Communist revolution, party members and sympathizers would already
have their fingers on enough levers of power to help the revolution
along and to govern once it took place. In the event that a violent
revolution did not take place, the "long march through the
institutions" would be an alternate road to power.
The Communists and those behind Communism, as we all know, took that
alternate road in this country. Once in positions of influence, they
were able to help each other, sway the minds of students and others
under them, and crush their disorganized and surprised opposition,
especially in the academy where they still rule today. Boas was one of
the most skilled practitioners of these skills.

Boas was born in Germany in 1858 of radical socialist Jewish parents.
His fame rests on his contributions to the field of anthropology, the
study of the origins and development of man and human societies. His
education included no study of anthropology; and how he got his Ph.D.
is something of a mystery, but nonetheless he went on to obtain a
professorship at Columbia University and subsequently created what is
known today as social or cultural anthropology. Cultural anthropology,
in contrast to physical anthropology, holds that external
environmental forces determine human development almost to the
exclusion of biology and genetics. Boas, who died in 1942, spent his
life energetically promoting the equality doctrine.

Over a period of several decades, the pupils of Boas were given the
air of authority that goes with doctoral degrees, and were placed into
positions of responsibility in anthropology departments of leading
universities around the nation. These Boas disciples received the
concerted backing of the press, radio, and TV (which were also by this
time in the hands of America's enemies). These media served as a
platform to freely espouse their "great" opinions on various issues.
At the same time, the critics of the "Boas School" were to a large
degree silenced.

A prominent Boas student, Professor Melville Herksovits, stated, "The
four decades of the tenure of his professorship at Columbia gave a
continuity to his teaching that permitted him to develop students who
eventually made up the greater part of the significant professional
core of American anthropologists, and who came to man and direct most
of the major departments of anthropology in the United States. In
their turn they trained the students who, with increases in general
interest in the subject... have continued in the tradition in which
their teachers were trained."

Thirty years ago America's pre-eminent physical anthropologist, the
late Carleton Coon, minced no words in describing the chicanery of the
cultural anthropologists: "More serious are the activities of the
academic debunkers and soft-peddlers who operate inside anthropology
itself. Basing their ideas on the concept of the brotherhood of man,
certain writers, who are mostly social anthropologists, consider it
immoral to study race, and produce book after book exposing it as a
`myth'... and [saying] we should pretend that race does not exist.
These writers are not physical anthropologists, but the public does
not know the difference." So while the liberal anthropologists
continually lecture the public on racial matters through an endless
stream of books and articles, the fact is that they have no real
credentials for such pronouncements. Those with such credentials --
the physical anthropologists -- are seldom given a media forum.

I do not want to leave the impression that physical anthropology was
somehow eliminated or absorbed by cultural anthropology. At the
present time the debate still rages between the two schools. Despite
decades of equality propaganda, some scholars are still intellectually
honest, you see, though the TV-watching and newspaper-reading public
almost never hears from them. Who were and are these cultural
anthropologists that have been propagandizing the public with the
equality doctrine? Therein lies the truly revealing aspect of the
matter. The most prominent among the Boas devotees are as follows:
Ashley Montagu (Jewish, despite the name), Raymond Pearl, Melville
Herskovitz, Herbert Seligman, Otto Klineberg, Gene Weltfish, Amram
Scheinfeld, Ruth Benedict, L.C. Dunn, Isador Chein, and Margaret Mead.
It is very noteworthy that a very high proportion of the Boas
illuminaries were foreign born, and in almost every case Jewish. The
two women mentioned, Mead and Benedict, were reportedly a lesbian
couple. Does Jewishness prove Communist or subversive motives by
itself? No, but when one considers the Communist connections of Boas
himself, and the fact that Ruth Benedict, Gene Weltfish, Melville
Herskovitz, and especially Ashley Montagu, had all been connected with
Communist activities, and when one also considers the long history of
Jewish domination of the Communist movement, it certainly would cause
one to view the whole group with extreme suspicion. It would be
reasonable to suspect that these individuals might not have America's
best interests at heart.

The history of Boas and the equality doctrine is an interesting
illustration in itself of the dangers inherent in the presence of
alien influences within even a relatively homogeneous nation, which is
what America was back during the era of Boas' domination of Columbia
University's anthropology department. Being non-political, as scholars
generally were, the physical anthropologists were simply unaccustomed
to dealing with an alien group within their midst possessed of both a
fervent political agenda and a powerful ethnic nationalism, who were
bent upon twisting scholarship into a propaganda tool. Combine the
collaboration of the partisan media with the willingness of the "Boas
School" to distort and falsify science, and we see the operation in
its essence and as it still functions today. It is a sobering example
of the kind of subversion that has taken place in so many areas of
American society.

Certainly the subversion continues today and has deeply damaged our
society. We have fallen so far that the Republican party, viewed by
many well-meaning White Americans as the nation's salvation, is
saturated with the equality philosophy. The examples are numerous.

The victory of Proposition 187 in California was a result of the total
frustration of Californians with the totally ineffectual efforts of
the federal government to stop illegal immigration. The initiative,
which has now technically become law though Jewish lawyer Mark
Silverman has vowed it will be "litigated for years" and the will of
California's people has been stifled, would simply prevent illegal
aliens from obtaining public welfare, public medical assistance, and
access to public schools, and would increase the penalties for the
counterfeiting of documents used by illegals to obtain employment.
When it began to look like the proposition was going to win, we saw
two of the most prominent "conservative" gurus, Jack Kemp and William
Bennett, travelling to California and making public statements
attacking the provision as "exclusionary" and "undemocratic." Another
example is the recent broadcast statement of the House Speaker, Newt
Gingrich, in which he proclaimed that we must accept an "integrated
society." Actually the evidence of Newt Gingrich's liberalism goes
much deeper than a few public statements.

Recently, Speaker Gingrich wrote the introduction to the book Creating
a New Civilization by Jewish authors Alvin and Heidi Toffler. Mr.
Toffler has written several popular books over the years projecting
his vision for the future of society; two of the most well known being
Future Shock and The Third Wave. Contained within the pages of their
most recent book is the advocacy of, among other things, both
homosexual and polygamous marriages, convenience abortion, and various
kinds of "New Age" claptrap. Also singled-out for praise in several
instances in this book is the liberal Democratic Vice President, Al
Gore, Jr.

Throughout the book they repeatedly make much use of standard
Communist phraseology, and the Tofflers are reported to hold a sincere
reverence for Karl Marx himself. Furthermore, targets attacked by them
include traditional families, patriotism, and national sovereignty,
and they refer to a homogeneous population as a "curse." They even go
as far as to boldly claim that the principles held by our founding
fathers, and embodied in the Constitution, are "oppressive and
dangerous to our welfare." In other words, the Tofflers are
espousing the same old liberal, anti-American, "one world" garbage
that has been propagated by our enemies for the past sixty years or
more. And Newt Gingrich, the standard-bearer for the Republican Party,
wrote a glowing introduction to their book. If you cannot reason from
these facts -- if you still believe that the Republicans really oppose
the liberal program -- then there is indeed no hope for you.

In reading the Toffler's book, we find repeated calls for "diversity"
in nearly every chapter, and warnings that our only hope is to promote
and foster "diversity" in every aspect of American society. In
addition to this we find the declaration, in so many words, that we
cannot stop Third World immigration.

The long and short of the Toffler's recommended vision for America is
a society consisting of atomized and disconnected individuals of every
race, unified as members of a giant network harmoniously exchanging their
thoughts and ideas, and out of all this will emerge a "new civilization"
in the land that was once America. It is just a repackaging of all the old
liberal hallucinations of the past: "the brotherhood of man," "the unity
of mankind," "one-world," "the new world order," "equality" and on and on
in the same old tired vein. Like trendy leftists everywhere these days,
the Tofflers do pay obeisance to "market forces" but then the economic
structure was never really the reason behind our enemies' calls for
revolution anyway.

As the Tofflers and their sycophants -- both Republican and Democrat
-- call for increased "diversity" as the remedy for our ills, more and
more White Americans are coming to the realization that "diversity" is
the cause of our problems rather than the cure. As ever-increasing
numbers of our people, especially in urban areas, are finding it
necessary to live behind electronic surveillance systems, armed
security guards, and barred windows -- all aimed at keeping
"diversity" at bay -- they will come to understand that in order for
our nation to survive, diversity is something to be prevented, not

A creative, conquering spirit still lies suppressed within the
consciousness of our people. That spirit has sustained us since the
beginning of our existence. It will emerge again.

Instead of conquering a vast wilderness or exploring uncharted regions
of territory or knowledge, we must come to realize that the present
struggle is an intellectual and spiritual one within ourselves. In
order to have any chance of survival we must purge from our minds the
popular superstitions and fetishes popularized by the media. We must
reject the do-gooding hallucination of "brotherhood," the self-hate
that has been so cleverly injected into so many of our people, and of
course, the destructive alien doctrine of liberalism and its parent,
equalitarianism, regardless of whether we hear them from conservatives
or liberals, Republicans or Democrats.

After that battle has been won, the job of straightening out North
America and our people's homelands around the world will be
comparatively easy. That is why the enemies of America are so
terrified that you might wake up.
