The Tale of Bob Mathews

In 1983, The National Alliance—a white activist organization founded and headed by William Pierce—held its annual convention in Washington, D.C.  A young mine worker from the Pacific Northwest by the name of Bob Mathews was scheduled to give a talk at the convention.  Mathews had been an Alliance member for three years and actively recruiting new members for the organization among the farmers and ranchers and working people around where he lived in Washington State.  Dr. Pierce asked Bob to tell the people at the convention how his efforts were going, and about the situation generally in his part of the country.  Bob wrote out his speech on his dining table at home and flew out to D.C. for the conference.1

The Bob Mathews those in attendance saw at the podium was a boyish-looking man thirty years of age.  He was about 5’7” and had a trim muscular build.  He was good-looking with even facial features.  His dark brown hair was short and parted to the side and fell forward onto his forehead.  Those who knew Bob said he had hazel eyes that shone with intensity and purpose.  They saw him as a serious and forceful person.  Even those who disliked his politics liked Bob the man.   In pictures I have seen of him, he reminds me of an army enlisted man home on leave, or the young working-class fathers I see walking past the stores in shopping malls with their wives, their young children in strollers.

An audio tape exists of Bob’s talk. His voice is youthful. There is a tension and fervor in his delivery that gives a sense of immediacy and electricity to the occasion.  Bob talked about ten minutes, not long.  An excerpt from what he had to say that day in the late summer of 1983 gives a sense of his message:

My brothers and sisters, from the mist-shrouded forested valleys and mountains of the Pacific Northwest I bring you a message of solidarity, a call to action, and a demand for adherence to duty as members of a vanguard of an Aryan resurgence and, ultimately, total Aryan victory.  The signs of awakening are sprouting up across the Northwest, and no more than among the two-fisted farmers and ranchers.   The task is not going to be easy.  TV satellite dishes are springing up like poisonous mushrooms across the domain of the tillers of the soil.  The electronic Jew is slithering into the living rooms of even the most remote farms and ranches.  The race-destroying dogs are everywhere.  In Metaline Falls [the town where he lives], we have broken the chains of Jewish thought.  We know not the meaning of the word “mine.”  It is “ours”: our race, the totality of our people.  Ten hearts, one beat!  One hundred hearts, one beat!  Ten thousand hearts, one beat!  We were born to fight and die and to continue the flow of our people.  The future is now!  Stand up like men and drive the enemy to the sea!  Stand up like men and swear a sacred oath upon the green graves of our sires that you will reclaim what our forefathers discovered, explored, conquered, settled, built, and died for!  Stand up like men and reclaim our soil!  Look toward the stars and proclaim our destiny!  In Metaline Falls we have a saying: Defeat, never!  Victory, forever!

Bob’s talk received a standing ovation.  He would be dead in a little over a year.

Robert Jay Mathews was born in Marfa, Texas in 1953 and grew up in Arizona around Phoenix.  From the time he was a teenager, Bob had a fierce racial pride in being a Caucasian.  It wasn’t primarily a matter of prejudice against minorities—harboring antagonistic feelings toward them, resenting them—as is usually attributed to whites who hold strong racial views.  Bob wasn’t so much against anything as he was for something: white people.  He held the conviction that it was white men who had created the greatness that is Western Civilization.  He was convinced that America was in a decline and that whites were being brought down to far less than they once were, and that they had to do something about it.

When still a teenager, Bob joined the ultra-conservative John Birch Society, and he tried to start a survivalist-type group called the Sons of Liberty, but that didn’t get very far.  He also got involved with a tax-protest movement in Arizona.  He wound up getting arrested and put on probation for not paying his taxes.

After high school, Bob didn’t go on to college, much to the disappointment of his parents.  He told them that he didn’t want to go through all the liberal propaganda they shove down your throat in college, and anyway, he wanted to get on with his life.  He wanted to get out of Phoenix, that was for sure.  There were too many laws, too many urban problems, too many minorities, and just too many people in general.

Bob got out a map of North America and started running his finger over it.  His finger came to rest on an isolated village in Washington State, Metaline Falls, the last town before the Canadian border.  Bob loaded up his pickup and drove to Metaline Falls to begin a new life.  Right away, he found a laboring job in a lead and zinc mine.  It wasn’t long before he could afford to buy fifty acres of land and put a mobile home on it.

A writer describes the place Bob went to:

Minorities were virtually absent from the Metaline Falls area, and a white man living there could imagine that he was existing in a country that wasn’t ethnically diverse or full of crowded, complicated cities.  A man could dream of starting over here, of rebuilding his life from scratch.  Mathews loved the landscape the town was set in.  Canada’s Selkirk Mountains rose in the distance.  At dawn, deer walked across the main street of Metaline Falls.  Heavy snow only made the hills and evergreens more beautiful.  God’s country.  It was the kind of climate one would find in northern Europe, where the Aryan people had flourished before their heirs came to America.  In centuries past, those ethnic groups had given rise to Norse and Viking sagas, grand tales of the courage and strength of northern warriors in battle.   They had no fear of death: if they perished heroically, the Valkyries (the handmaidens of Odin, the Supreme Being of Norse mythology) would whisk their souls away to Valhalla, where they’d be enshrined in the great hall of immortality.  A modern-day religion, Odinism, has sprung from these sagas.  Bob Mathews was familiar with it and liked it.  He regarded it the same way he regarded the Northwestern Passage—both could inspire a man to become a hero.2

Bob wanted to start a family, and he met his wife in an unconventional way, through an ad in the nationally circulated Mother Earth News.  His ad read, “Looking for a mature, intelligent woman, 18-25, to share my life and land in Washington.”  One-hundred-thirty women replied.   The letter that most caught Bob’s attention was from a Kansan who had moved to Wyoming after college by the name of Debbie McGarrity.  Debbie wrote Bob that she thought the most important job a woman could do was to raise children.  “You can’t have a good society unless the home is a decent place,” Debbie wrote.  Bob drove to Wyoming to meet Debbie.  She moved to Metaline Falls and they were married in 1976.  Debbie and Bob didn’t have children of their own, but they adopted a son.

Bob had really taken to Dr. Pierce’s book The Turner Diaries.3  He pored over every word in the book and gave it to his friends along with his highest recommendation.  But the thing about Bob was that he wasn’t content to just read the book and agree with what it said.  Bob was a man of action.  He had a fire burning inside him.   He was going to create an Order of his own like the one in the book, and start a revolution like the one he had read about.  Bob meant business.

Right after Bob returned home from his speech at the National Alliance convention, he gathered together eight men in a barracks-like structure he had erected near his mobile home.  “I’ve asked you to come here because I think we share a common goal.”  Earlier, he had talked to them about forming an Order like the one in The Turner Diaries, a group of racial kinsman who would let their deeds do their talking for them.  The goal Bob had in mind was to carve out a part of eastern Washington as a homeland for the white race, purged of Jews and minorities.  They would use The Turner Diaries as a blueprint for getting that done.  “I’m telling you now,” Bob said, “if any of you don’t want to get involved in this, you are free to leave.”

No one left.

“I’m going to ask each of you to take an oath that you will remain true to this cause.  I would like to remind all of you what is at stake here.   It is our children and their economic and racial survival.  Because of that, I would like to place a white child before us as we take this oath.”  A six-week-old daughter of one of the men was placed in the center of the circle as a symbol of a Caucasian future they were about to pledge to create.  She stared up at the figures looming above her in the glow of the candles.

The men clasped hands and recited an oath of loyalty and commitment to their race and to their cause Bob had written:

I, as an Aryan warrior, swear myself to complete secrecy to the Order and total loyalty to my comrades.

Let me bear witness to you, my brothers, that should one of you fall in battle, I will see to the welfare and well-being of your family.

Let me bear witness to you, my brothers, that should one of you be taken prisoner, I will do whatever is necessary to regain your freedom.

Let me bear witness to you, my brothers, that should an enemy agent hurt you, I will chase him to the ends of the earth and remove his head from his body.

And furthermore, let me bear witness to you, my brothers, that if I break this oath, let me be forever cursed upon the lips of our people as a coward and an oath breaker.

My brothers, let us go forth by ones and twos, by scores and by legions, and as true Aryan men with pure hearts and strong minds face the enemies of our faith and our race with courage and determination.

We hereby invoke the blood covenant and declare that we are in a full state of war and will not lay down our weapons until we have driven the enemy into the sea and reclaimed the land which was promised to our fathers of old, and which through our blood becomes the land of our children to be.

The group obtained a trail-clearing contract with the U.S. Forest Service, but that didn’t bring in enough money fast enough.  Bob and two others in the group robbed a porn shop in Spokane, Washington.  One of Bob’s partners slugged one of the clerks.  Their take was $36.

Bob went into a Seattle branch of Citibank, handed the teller a note and walked off with almost $26,000.  A snapshot exists of a smiling Bob Mathews in a long-sleeve flannel shirt holding a Halloween trick-or-treat bag containing the money.

The group captured the courier of an armored car while it was parked in front of a Fred Meyers department store and made off with $43,000.

They hit another armored car, this one parked in front of a Bon Marché food market outlet.  The take in this one was a half-million dollars.

The Order bombed an adult movie theater in downtown Seattle and a Boise, Idaho synagogue.  Neither bomb did much damage.

The group talked about people to assassinate.  Names thrown out included Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, and Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center.  The person they wound up taking out was a Jewish radio call-in host in Denver named Alan Berg.  The killing inspired part of the film Talk Radio.  One of the Order had lived in the Denver area and was very put off by Berg, who went off on monologues about the joys of oral sex, the flaws in Christianity, why whites were afraid of blacks, and how white women fantasize about sleeping with black men.

Bob and several others of the Order drove to Denver.  They ambushed Berg getting out of his car in front of his apartment.  One of the members of the Order, not Bob, started firing from close up.  Bullets hit Berg in the face, neck, and torso.  The garage door behind Berg splintered from the spray of bullets.  When Berg was found lying face up in a pool of blood, the cigarette he had been holding was still lit.  Autopsy reports couldn’t be sure how many shots there were because Berg was twisting at the time he was shot, although it was probably around twelve.  Two slugs struck near Berg’s left eye and exited on the right side of his neck.  Others hit the left side of Berg’s head and exited from his neck and the back of his skull.

The armored-car stick-ups continued.  The biggest one took place on the side of a highway near Ukiah, California, in the northern part of the state.  Bob and 11 others in two pickup trucks forced a Brinks truck to stop and jumped out of their trucks wearing bandannas over their faces.  One of them held up a sign that read “Get Out or Die.”  Bob jumped onto the front bumper of the truck and shouted for the two guards to get out, but they seemed frozen and didn’t move.  One of the robbers blew dime-sized holes in the windshield with an automatic weapon.  That did the trick—the guards opened the door and scrambled out.  

All this was happening with traffic going by on the highway.  People gawked as they went by, and some stopped their cars.  It must have seemed unreal to the passers-by, like a movie.  The group started a chain to unload the bags of money out of the money compartment in back of the armored truck.  They had given themselves five minutes to complete the job, and it was approaching seven minutes.   Somebody could have called the highway patrol.  A traffic jam—they hadn’t thought of that until now—could block their way out.  They had to get out of there!

Bob was inside the truck frantically scooping up money bags and passing them on.  In all the excitement, he didn’t notice that the 9mm pistol he was carrying had fallen out of his pocket.  It turned out to be a fateful error, because the gun was traced to him and the FBI knew whom it was looking for.

Finally, the men jumped in their pickups and sped away, tossing nails out of the back to slow down anyone chasing them.

The Order made a clean getaway (except for the gun left behind), and when they counted up the money they found that the take was a whopping 3.6 million dollars.  They used some of the money for salaries, and most of them quit their regular jobs.  Money went into things like mobile homes and a ski condo.  They purchased 110 acres in Idaho and 106 acres in Missouri to use as paramilitary camps.  Money went for all-terrain vehicles and guns and ammunition.  Two members of the group formed a company called Mountain Man Supply Company with the intention of using it to provide supplies to the Order.

Like the fictional Order in The Turner Diaries, Bob Mathews’ Order counterfeited money.  Along with the dropped pistol, the counterfeiting activity turned out to be Bob’s downfall.  One of the people who passed the money got caught.  In return for the FBI going easy on him, he told them when he was scheduled to meet Bob at a Sheraton Motel in Portland, Oregon.

On the day of the meeting, FBI agents and Portland city SWAT team members converged on the motel.  Bob was in room 24.  The other guests were herded into the motel’s small lounge and told to keep their heads down.  Bob went outside his room to stretch and spotted a man hiding in the bushes and realized what was up and bolted down the stairs past a female agent who fired a shot at him.  The shot missed Bob, and the slug smashed through the window of the lounge where the other guests were crouched down and ricocheted off a stone fireplace.

Bob ran two blocks down the street and got behind a concrete pillar next to an apartment complex.  Bob later reported that it was at this point he decided to stop being the hunted and become the hunter.  A couple of officers chasing him ran up to the pillar and Bob fired, wounding one of them in the shin and foot.  Bob later said that he first had aimed at the officer’s head, but when he saw that he was a white man he lowered his aim.  The other officer blasted a shotgun and the pellets smashed into Bob’s exposed gun hand and searing pain shot up his arm and blood shot from the wound.  Bob escaped, but the hand injury would throb for the remaining weeks he had left to live.

Bob made it to a house on Whidbey Island near Seattle.  There he wrote up a “declaration of war”:

It is now a dark time in the history of our race.  All about us lie the green graves of our sires, yet in a land once ours we have become a people dispossessed.

By the millions, those not of our blood violate our borders and mock our claim to sovereignty.  Yet our people only react with lethargy.

A great sickness has overcome us.  Why do our people do nothing?  What madness is this?  Has the cancer of racial masochism consumed our will to exist?

Our heroes and our culture have been insulted and degraded.  The mongrel hordes sever us from our inheritance.  Yet our people do not care.

Throughout this land our children are being coerced into accepting non-whites as their idols, their companions, and, worst of all, their mates, a course taking us straight to oblivion.  Yet our people do not see.

Not by accident but by design these terrible things have come to pass.  It is self-evident to all who have eyes to see that an evil shadow has fallen across our once fair land.  Evidence abounds that a vile, alien people have taken control of our country.  

All about us the land is dying.  Our cities swarm with dusky hordes. The water is rancid and the air is rank.  Our farms are being seized by usurious leeches and our people are being forced off the land.

They close the factories, the mills, the mines, and ship our jobs overseas.  Yet our people do not awaken.

Do you hear the approaching thunder?  It is that of the awakened Saxon.  War is upon the land.  The tyrant’s blood will flow.

From this day forward, we will no longer submit to the tyranny placed upon us by Tel Aviv and their lackeys in Washington.   Our people are being put into a lobotomized, lethargic state of blind obedience and we will not take part in collective racial suicide.

This is war!

This “declaration of war” was followed by an “open letter to Congress.”

All of you together are not solely responsible for what has happened to America, but each of you, without exception, is partly responsible.  The day will come when each of you will be called to account for that responsibility.

The day will come when your complicity in the betrayal of the 55,000 Americans who were sacrificed in Vietnam will be called to account.

The day will come when your subservience to the anti-American “Israel Lobby” will be called into account.  Your votes to strip American arsenals so that Zionists can hold on to stolen land and your acquiescence in a policy which has turned our Arab friends into enemies—those things are inexcusable.

The day will come when you will pay for betraying your race.  You may say you are against the forced racial busing of school children, that you are against the “reverse discrimination” which takes jobs away from Whites and gives them to Blacks, that you are against the flooding of America with illegal immigrants, because you know these things are unpopular.  But you brought every one of these plagues down on our heads.  You passed the “civil rights” laws which gave us busing in the first place, and then you refused repeatedly to outlaw this monstrous crime against our children.  It was your scramble for Black votes and your cowardice in the face of the controlled news media which allowed our cities to become crime-infested jungles.  You set up the requirements that employers had to meet racial quotas.  And you passed the immigration laws which started the flood of non-White immigrants into America—a flood that is out of control.

We hold you responsible for all these things: for every White child terrorized in a racially-mixed school, for every White person murdered in one of our urban jungles, for every White woman raped by one of the arrogant “equals” roaming our streets, for every White family hungry and desperate because a White worker’s job was given to a Black.  Each day the list grows longer, but the day will come when the score will be settled and you will pay every one of these debts in full.

On November 25th, 1984 Bob wrote a letter to a small weekly newspaper in Newport, Washington that included: “It is logical to assume that my days on this planet are rapidly drawing to a close.  I have no fear, for the reality of life is death.  I have made the ultimate sacrifice to secure the future for my children.”

*   *   *

On December 7th, one hundred FBI agents surrounded the Whidbey Island house.   Bob was alone inside.

They cut off his electricity.

They attempted to negotiate through a bullhorn—”Come out and we won’t harm you.”

His hand mangled and throbbing, Bob opened fire with an automatic weapon.

A standoff lasted through the night and into the next day.  The press converged on the site.

The FBI lofted in tear gas.  Bob must have had a gas mask.  He continued to fire—da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da.

“Give up or we’re coming in to get you.”

More automatic weapon fire from Bob.

At 3:00 p.m. on December 8th, a SWAT team stormed into the house. When they got inside, bullets rained down on them through the ceiling from the floor above.  The SWAT team returned fire as they retreated.

After it had gotten dark that evening, a helicopter flew over the house and dropped white phosphorous illumination flares onto the roof.  The house ignited, and flames shot one hundred feet into the air.

Bullets ripped from inside the burning house—Bob was still firing away!   The agents kept down as the slugs whistled through the night air and split the trees above them.

Then everything was still.

The next morning, in the charred ruins of the house they found a body burned beyond recognition.  Dental records determined it to be that of Bob Mathews.

    A rather upscale heritage American friend of mine (in a lineage that helped found the Republican Party and was prominent in politics), after experiencing the movie “Braveheart” commented that it is necessary that someone like William Wallace sacrifice himself before the corrupt “nobility” will stop being bought off, and fight for their people. Clearly, Matthews’s sacrifice failed in this regard.

    The failure to understand that white superiority to other races is precisely in our greater heritable moral opposition to supremacism — the protection of individual sovereignty — than other races is what is making it impossible for us to unite in a Declaration of War. Any State of War is, necessarily, an exercise in supremacism over the individuals comprising the military for the purpose of exercising supremacy in that war over the forces of supremacism. Untangling this psychological knot is the job of true leadership. This is why a viable Declaration of War must provide its own termination condition in terms of the operationally defined defeat of a supremacist adversary. One of the barriers to formalizing such a Declaration of War is the target-rich environment. The bewilderingly array of our adversaries requires a great deal of intellectual discipline, including intelligence estimates of the invariant structures underlying their protean forms. Only such actionable intelligence can focus, in simple language, the economics of war so that the precious bloodlines* of young heroes like Matthews are not wasted in futile, if not counter-productive, desperation. They must “get it” at a deep morally visceral level of their being.

    *Contrary to what some of our would-be “leaders” like to think, war is dysgenic because there is inadequate accounting of and compensation for the loss of heroic genes. The Biblical passage comes to mind: “And whosoever shall say, Thou Fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”

      Someone once told me that blocking the enemy’s metabolic pathway was preferable to killing him outright. I didn’t know what Bitcoin was at that time. Now I do. This path to individual financial sovereignty is also the path that bypasses the vessels of the enemy’s metabolic supply. Adoption of the former enables the occlusion of the latter. The host does not need to die to facilitate the starvation of the parasite.

        Yes, I remember. That’s an example of what I refer to as “actionable intelligence” based on “invariant structures”. There is an OO article in this general topic that I may try writing.

      Friedrik Ladof says:

      In my opinion it is completely useless to discuss about terms as supremacism, “our greater heritable moral opposition to supremacism..”. The issue is not the supremacism but the complete failure to include in the same Country, in the same History, in the same Heritage, different races. The “negro problem” is a smoke and mirror since the action plan has different actors, that is the Jewish people that wants, from the beginning, to destroy the white race to govern the Goym as chosen people. To do that, the destruction of the moral white values, the psycowar against the normal concepts of the life well illustrated by a sprout of neologism in the jargon, the confusion made by the Judges applying the Law in political terms, the not new wedding between Marxismus (originated by the Jews) and black people are all weapons for mass white destruction. Therefore we shall set again a simple order of the life where there is no room for different races. The melting pot is a sad failure, the tribalization of the society is the real truth. Fight or perish. Peacefully, politically, we hope but the enemy is now inside the same white people destroying its own heritage. Perhaps too late.

      ” white superiority to other races is precisely in our greater heritable moral opposition to supremacism ”

      Both the historical and scientific evidence clearly indicates that White supremacy , to the extent it exists , is precisely due to a higher aggregate average IQ than most , if not all , other races .

      White high IQs are commensurate with high intelligence in many domains of knowledge except domains of people knowledge ; where “intelligence” means information and knowledge — not IQ . Jews ( especially the ashkenazim tribe ) have supremacy in those domains of knowledge about people which includes anthropology , psychology , sociology , history , politics , economics , medicine ( human biology ) , et al .

      Westernworld high intelligence Whites ( usually but not necessarily high IQ Whites ) along with their jewmasters , whom employed or facilitated the employment of those Whites , have provided the whole world with most of the technology that supports the highest average standard-of-living enjoyed by more people worldwide than ever before in the history of humanity .

      Please note that appropriate morals are an important accessory for assuring group/social survival ; and for maintaining and raising standards-of-living .

      High moral standards are not the ultimate goal in life ( except for Christians whom try to score points with God for getting into heaven after they die ).

      Survival of future generations of mankind AND maintaining a continuous net upward trend in the standards-of-living for humanity is the primary goal ( or should be primary , or will soon be the ultimate goal ) where appropriate morals , which are also contingent on cultural factors , are an important accessory in attaining those objectives .

      The “Ten Commandments” were deemed necessary for indigenous tribal survival — not for the survival of exogenous tribes . Clearly , morals are contingent on a culture and its goals . Morals are therefore relative — not absolute nor universal . In other words , different cultures would require different moral codes for attaining the same objective .

      Also note that nonjewish Whites are typically politically retarded ; which is mostly an intelligence issue — not mostly an IQ issue . Consequently , Whites have little or no power to enforce any moral standards , for themselves or others , even standards which they frequently proclaim .

    You know, from all the bullshit that was circulating surrounding the Oklahoma City bombing incident, not to mention the video– just what passed for printer’s ink in what in those days was the Patriot press, you’re piece on Pierce on McVeigh is probably most valuable as a cautionary tale.

    Some didn’t like your last piece here. But these are temperament issues. And we all have to play the hand we’re dealt. It was good for you rubbing elbows with Dr. William Pierce.

    Yesterday, I commented to someone that I’m not fighting age anymore and it behooves the young to try to resuscitate chivalry which is in arrest at least in these parts. I appreciate the young mestizo with whom I interacted who hasn’t figured-out much of how the world works exhibiting a little bit of manners– which I consider common sense given circumstances. And therefore I showed a little restraint in my recalcitrance to follow my instincts and we both saved a little face, perhaps a few teeth. Would that Whites, these days, had a little more let’s just say class. These character sketches contain important lessons that my generation of parents obviously didn’t teach the current generation of parents judging from the behavior of current youth.

    More than anything else about you I like your skill and the growing you continue to do. Thank you, Sir.

    Outstanding article. I recently read Glenn Miller’s autobiography entitled, A White Man Speaks Out. He claims The Order donated a total of $200,000 to his movement, which he made good use of. And that he also helped David Lane escape apprehension. The 80s seemed like a more promising, and hopeful time to be alive.

    “After high school, Bob didn’t go on to college, much to the disappointment of his parents.”

    His parents were right to be disappointed.

    “He told them that he didn’t want to go through all the liberal propaganda they shove down your throat in college,”

    But that’s not all he would have gotten back then. No way.

    He would still have been able to learn what he needed to know in order to deepen his pride and increase his knowledge, of which he was severely lacking. Obviously.

    He was so dense he couldn’t see that pride and knowledge go together.

    Unfortunately for him he had that crippling insecurity so typical of Americans in regard to higher education.

    Which is why they so roundly rejected it, losing their minds in the process, literally.

    The Left went insane and the Right stayed stupid.

    Which means they got played throughout the entire 20th and into the 21st century by a bunch of crazy people.

    Once again, the Right and Left remind us that we shouldn’t laugh at the dinosaurs for getting themselves extinct.

    “…and anyway, he wanted to get on with his life.”

    And how did that work out?


    Was this article supposed to be inspiring?

    What has happened to TOO?

    Like many White men Mathews made himself as irrelevant as the rotary phone.

    And how do you become irrelevant?

    When the speed of change around you is faster than the speed of change in you.

    He didn’t want to learn, change and grow, probably because he knew in his bones he was incapable of it.

    So he rationalized it and justified his impulsive, thoughtless actions by virtue signalling, if only to himself, just like the Left does.

    Not only are guys like Mathews doomed to irrelevancy, but they’re actually a betrayal of the very people they claim to love and whose future they want to secure.

    His poor parents (unless they supported him in his “cause”, in which case they’re morons too).

    It never once occurs to guys like him that they might be wrong and so it might be a good idea to question their own assumptions and improve their responses for both rejecting the world they don’t like and for building the one they want to live in.

    He got what was comging to him. Dope.

      I have no idea who you are, Mr. B. But you strike me as the one who is the dope, criticizing a heroic man of his race like Bob Mathews — an historical figure as much as men of the Alamo — as a “dope” and a “moron” because he eschewed the collich route in which you put so much stock. Mathews was a self-educated man of books, the right books, starting with Simpson’s _Which Way Western Man?_. I know the years I spent at University were mostly wasted with those pointy-headed, intellectually dishonest professors trying, and failing, to shove their liberal propaganda down my throat. I learned more from William Pierce working by his side, picking his brain for two years than I could have ever learned in eight years at Harvard collich.

      Thank you for this tale of Bob Mathews, Dr. Griffin, and, again, for your biography of William Pierce. Our people need to hear Mathews’ story, shortcomings and all. I noticed just a couple of slight errors, one being that Bob was in room 14 in that Portland motel, not room 24.

      A fairly objective book about Bob’s group, the Order, or Aryan Revolutionary Movement (ARM) is _The Silent Brotherhood_, 1989, by Kevin Flynn and Gary Gerhardt (available on Amazon). A memorable excerpt from that book, page 322: “Bob accorded Pierce a reverence approaching outright worship that he deigned to give no other man. When William Pierce spoke, Mathews became reticent, almost as if he were afraid to interrupt with thoughts of his own. It was decidedly unlike Bob Mathews.”

      When I was Dr. Pierce’s National Alliance XO in WV in 1992 I’d read _The Silent Brotherhood_ and asked him why he didn’t carry that title in the National Vanguard Books catalog since it was favorable to him and to the Alliance. He told me it was because there was an unsubstantiated claim about him in the book. On that same page, 322: “Back at the hotel later Bob asked [his mistress] Zillah {Craig] to help count his remaining [expropriated Brinks robbery] money before he set aside an amount in a bag for Dr. Pierce. Later Pierce came to the hotel, and Bob escorted him down to a bench in a shaded, grassy area nearby. From a hotel window high above, Zillah watched as Bob handed his mentor a bag.”

      Dr. Pierce told me that there was no way that Zillah could have seen Bob hand him a bag because there was a big bush between the bench and her motel window high above.

      The admiration between Mathews and Pierce was mutual. In Pierce’s post introduction to Bob’s 1983 speech to the General Conference of the National Alliance, quoted in part above, this is clear, as is his commentary made after Bob’s full “A Call To Arms” speech. The audio version of that speech and Pierce’s commentary about it will be available later this month in Volume 10 of the Cosmotheist Church’s “Power of Truth” CD series, here:

      Shortly after Bob was murdered 35 years ago by the feds Dr. Pierce offered this eulogy to his friend, available here: Excerpt:

      “…ARM, on the other hand, set its sights on a full-scale armed revolution, ending with the purification of the U.S. population and the institution of a race-based, authoritarian government. It recruited its activists throughout the country, and it carried out its strikes in half-a-dozen states. Whether or not these strikes were ill-advised, whether or not the recruiting tactics were well thought out, even the question of the feasibility of any type of armed action against the U.S. government under the conditions which now prevail — these questions are beside the point. The fact is that because of ARM, White resistance in America will never again be the same. The stakes have been raised substantially, and a new level of action has been set, which will be the baseline for future efforts…”

        Richard B says:

        Your response to my comment proves what I’ve been saying for a long time.

        All ideologues are easily triggered.


        Because they make a big emotional investment in a belief. They allow that emotion to contaminate their intellect.

        Remember that Dante talked about intellect and instinct balanced equally by the light that moves the sun and other stars.

        In short, a wise man keeps it together. No matter how strong his beliefs he doesn’t lose his mind.

        Bob Mathews lost his mind.

        He wasn’t brave.

        He was foolhardy.

        Big difference.

        And it’s exaxctly because he was foolhardy that he was no hero.

        I welcome criticism and am not afraid of insults.

        Not because I think I’m superior.

        But because I value myself.

        One of the reasons why is because I am a White man.

        White men are the product of European culture.

        And that holds for us Americans.

        I’ve never even been to the European continent. But that’s of no matter.

        Because North America and South America are geographical extensions of European culture, as are Australia and New Zealand.

        And because of that we owe it to ourselves to not just “celebrate” our culture (how cornball left-wing), but value it by knowing and practicing it.

        I was born years after Bob and came from a family even poorer and grew up in a mixed neighborhood.

        Out of ten children only three of us went to college. I was lucky enough to be one of them.

        I was made fun of by the more privileged and even my other two siblings, who were climbers, distanced themselves from me because I refused to join in and go with the flow of where the culture was headed even back then (long before then as all good TOO readers know).

        But it never occured to me to go the route of insecure Whites who boast of White pride while being afraid of the very books that have helped make us who we are because privileged and opportunistic Whites have read those books too and use it to insult and attack those less privileged or not privileged at all.

        I answer to No Man when it comes to the pride I feel, and it was earned, daily.

        THAT’s why I know for a fact that he was foolhardy, not brave.

        He precipitated and blew his chance to truly do something for his people.

        He was in no way exposed to what so many Whites have been and are exposed to.

        They are the heroes!

        He should have made a point to be there for them.

        But they weren’t even on his radar.

        But he’s certainly on the radar of The SPLC and ADL, still, to this day.

        And I think about that.

        No. Bob Mathews was a boobus americanus race traitor who played right into their hands.

        By all means, feel free to do the same.

        You won’t be missed.

        • Will W Williams
          Will W Williams says:

          I’m surprised at some of the uninformed comments I see here about Bob Mathews, especially your insults, Mr. B.: “not brave,” race-traitor,” “moron” — really? Your reach in understanding our life or death racial struggle far exceeds your grasp of it.

          You are no combatant and never will be. So stay to the rear with your books and pontificate about your concept of honor. Your self-styled intellect has clouded your manhood.

          Bob Mathews didn’t have your problem. He was an honorable man who, when confronted with race-destroying evil, did not ignore it with the excuse that it was not his responsibility. He didn’t ally himself with it, like you do, because that’s where the “smart money” is. No, he took up arms against it and fought it with all his strength and without regard for the personal consequences, even if he had to do so alone.

          I have no idea what your ideology is, or if you even have one. His ideology was simple: our race is worth preserving, and that requires fighting — something that you make clear is not in your makeup.

          You will never worry about being on SPLC or ADL radar because you will never be a threat to the Jew’s status quo.

          To others, get real:

      Hi Richard,

      Thank you for your thoughts on education (placed on bottom). How true. I once nearly married an East German gal. Her dad was a high ranking officer. He’d tell stories about Eurocide II and the impossibility of matching industrial needs, the sad needless slaughter of his men, etc. He spoke of what could have been saved if April 1944 would have been successful. Imagine if Mathews would have mastered two or three foreign languages and/or worked his way up to become a CEO and had been able to contribute to others. Ponder about that.

      To me, Mathews was a hero, but lacked knowledge. Had he lived perhaps he could of had 4 progeny.

      Richard, as for formal sheep skins, today it’s a different story. Apes are attending universities, topics learned need not be discussed. Richard, suffice to say that monkeys are not only in labs. Further, as you know -cuz you are obviously a person who is well read- today it’s difficult to obtain a decent job. For one example (there are millions), I have a friend who is a pharmacist and he’s coerced into laboring 12 – 16 hrs a day. He can’t find a normal 9 to 5 job cuz everywhere they are hiring those with a 3rd world background.

      Richard, the revolution we see on TelAvivza and in cyberspace is the tip of the iceberg. Billions of $$$ are being bestowed on the nemesis of our people. Appeasement is in the open. Even mount Rushmore will go the way of the Whooping Crane, unless it’s guarded day and night. As for Herr Donald (the other side of that intellectual giant Bidden), seems he is essentially interested in another term and, to this point, has been unable to stop the revolution. Shades of Moscow’s Krensky…

      I hope you continue to write. Once again, thank you.

      –He would still have been able to learn what he needed to know in order to deepen his pride and increase his knowledge, of which he was severely lacking. Obviously.

      He was so dense he couldn’t see that pride and knowledge go together.

      Unfortunately for him he had that crippling insecurity so typical of Americans in regard to higher education.

      Which is why they so roundly rejected it, losing their minds in the process, literally.

      The Left went insane and the Right stayed stupid.

      Which means they got played throughout the entire 20th and into the 21st century by a bunch of crazy people.

      Once again, the Right and Left remind us that we shouldn’t laugh at the dinosaurs for getting themselves extinct.

      Though I have a 4 year college degree (in a discipline, not in poetry, philosophy, art or any of the other soft studies so loved by the left) some of the brightest people I have known had only an 8th grade education. One learns from life, not from school. You do Bob a disservice and dishonor yourself with your remarks on ‘learning’, etc…

      – Unless the intended major is STEM or medicine, college is a waste of money and time and simply an extension of the political indoctrination system that both elementary and high school “education” amount to in the USA. It has been this way since the Frankfurt School managed to extend its tendrils through the education system as far back as the 1930’s. A young person considering college today would do well to read a book entitled “Worthless” by Aaron Clarey before committing him or herself to the financial slavery resulting from four or more years of college. Trade school makes more sense for most White young people today.

Is the lowered lifespan of working class whites from deaths of despair eugenic or, at worst, neutral? If some Ivy League Ashkenazim Jew worked a little overtime in his biotech lab to produce a stealth virus keyed to the I1 Y-Chromsome to reduce testosterone levels, would this, in your book, be just another example of the genetic inferiority of the oldest European patriline?

      There are two basic kinds of people that are needed to establish and maintain a WN ethnostate __

      high caliber intellectuals such as TOO commenter and WN advocate Richard B


      high caliber men-of-action such as the KIA WN martyr Bob Mathews .

      Intellectuals are not known for being men-of-action whom are also eventually the ones that will make it — a WN ethnostate — happen .

      Intellectuals preside over vast domains of knowledge that is essential in order to finesse and prevail in a lethal engagement with the ((( ENEMY ))). Unfortunately , men-of-action do not always have the luxury of finessing an engagement with the ((( enemy ))). In other words , they cannot always wait until they are in possession of complete knowledge before acting upon the limited knowledge available to them .

      Consequently , men-of-action are not known for being intellectuals . However , the article conveyed the impression to me that altho Bob Mathews was not a high intelligence person , as are many commenters here on this TOO website , he was a high IQ person whom was in possession of some very esoteric knowledge that motivated him to engage the ((( enemy ))) — an inevitable necessity for establishing a WN ethnostate — which is something that intellectuals rarely do in person .

      I very much appreciate your valuable erudite comments ; but your denigration of the KIA martyr Mathews is appalling . Please rethink your position on this matter . WN intellectuals and WN men-of-action are both indispensable . Any WN leader would have to find a way for those two basic types of people to cooperate ; otherwise a WN defeat is eventually assured .

  7. Howard Chesterfiel
    Howard Chesterfiel says:

    I don’t really know these dudes I read the 14 words and a bit about the order and their thoughts.

    On many issues I have very different views. But they did have some points.

    Are genetics important, probably very much so YES.

    Is white genetics and white people threatened by genocide. Very much so yes. Is there a point in the orders focus on nature probably so although I would say circumstances, culture and history can be as important. It’s different perspectives.

    Looking back what did they achieve, maybe a knowledge about their ideas among people who are radicalized to a certain point. If they did not do what they did would people have known about it.

    I certainly think they were brighter than hitler and had more valid points. Then I really dislike hitler and have come to the conclusion he was most likely a pedophile.

    Then again hitler was good at propaganda and his actions in many ways has caused the current situation.

    The attempt at genocide of jews who had to pay a large ransom sum to leave nazi territory before the war, has lead to an attempt of revenging this.

    Then jews have mixed with arabs, iranians and sometimes negroes. This a clear breach of the laws laid down by GOD. It is clear in the bible whites which most jews at the time was should not mix with other races. In the bible a jew marrying an arab is killed at the altar when marrying. Jews should only marry other whites if white and so on.

    I certainly have jewish heritage. I’m also not a bit arab, not 1 % (it’s 0 %, I am like a unique exception). But that is just one of my many white heritages. Most jews are like 8 % arab.

    So do jews want everyone to be racemixed like they are? they are a very high IQ, sucessfull and for the most part racially mixed. They think they are great, probably they just want for everone what happened to them which was itself probably a plan by racemixed fakejews to spread their genetics and to make all jews racemixed. So they just do what they did to jews to all whites. And now they get more high IQ people behind them cause most jews are mixed so they join the program.

    In the bible it is stated that mixed folks are manipulative liars fraudulent, often.

    But many italians, if not most are also mixed with arabs and they are not as anti white. They are more part of society. but most jews with normal jobs are even more part of society in my impression.

    The most stunning thing about it is the incredible stupidness of jews. Tryin to take out the white race through manipulative propaganda and money. Really? It can backlash, very hard on them. It’s very very dangerous for them. (then you hear some arab jew laughing goin: but we have Israel now, we can just move there or eastern europe haa haaaa).

    I think many jews became marxists because of the way it may lead to some of them marrying gentiles instead of mixed arab jews so it’s a way of securing white special genetics they have had also it’s their religion being a part satanist mess cause they (or their heavily racemixed religious leaders to be more exact what a buncha a holes) did not accept jesus who was of course GODs son. And probably the religion was used to racemix the true jews with arabs and other bad things mentioned and so on, so they wanted to get away from the religion.

    I think any things such as the order is useless when the public is not informed or sympathetic to a cause. Unless they hope for something like a communist revolution. But Gramsci concluded the burgoise society, the hegemony as such, which is by now to the majority extent a racemixing hegemony a commie hegemony effectively suppresses such measures. This is why the leftists have occupied the institutions.

    Karl marx was probably racemixed.

    So could jews change their ways, and become non hostile to non racemixed whites? I certainly think so and hope so, but it remains to be seen. They certainly read this homepage, so hello jews, stop tryin to kill us because you are mixed. NOONE cares if you are mixed. Noone cares about your religion, I couldn’t care less about jews. Some jews do great things that are important for the west and I hope they can continue to do so. Therefore I hope this is solved in a nonviolent way.

    And let’s not forget that africans themselves have had an effective movement aswell as many other mixed groups that have worked for mass immigration.

    Wasn’t JFK racemixed/ gypsy part that and changed the immigrant laws… Look at nothern sweden tons of folks there are finnins (heavily asian, most likely mongol), part sapmi… Some swedes are part african and they work extremely for massimmigration although like 1/16 part african. Same for people who are part arabs since back hundreds of years…

    I also hope all arabs and africans are thrown out of europe very very fasts. Same for mongolians or whatever. I also hope litterature childrens books with racial themes and language becomes the norm to read aswell as for IQ diferences because race are taught in schools aswell as results of genetest on larger populations which will increase in the current future most likely.

    Regardless I think the actions made by the order just makes white nationalists and ethnocentrics look bad cause the public don’t get the reasons for their actions and their way of thinking it is so far from the mainstream today.

    I also think most right wing extremist attacks such as the one in new zeeland, breivik and the like is sponsored by heavily racemixed maybe half white kinda whiteish looking criminal pedophiles who wanna undermine the movement and fear it because of their racial mixture so it’s a way of making all pro white folks look bad. Like the thing at unite the right rally probably just a way of crushing the movement probaly with deep state elements and so on…

    Ethnocentrism as the ancestral superior vital force of evolution and ethnic-spiritual-social-cultural-territorial survival.
    Any extraterrestrial species that is traversing the stars have to be highly ethnocentric from the beginning, that is explained by observing divergent evolution, where all life forms seek their own path or lineage. Bio-genetic lineage is power (Race-Ethnic-Human), the ultra-ethnocentric Semitic parasite discovered that absolute truth, therefore it tries to attack fiercely the ethnocentrism of competition, in this case that of other ethnic groups, peoples or races (Example race white). Forced diversity fulfills that objective, in reality it is first to get the most money, then that leads to achieving power, and finally you get to get total control (current censorship), from the parasite, all this is nothing but a biological warfare on other races. The political, legal, spiritual, philosophical, biological, psychological, ethical, moral dialectics (political correctness) is but one of the many forms of warfare employed by the Semitic parasite. Its ultimate goal is to destroy or weaken ethnocentrism through dilution (miscegenation), and all manner of degrading and debilitating tricks. The IQ is another of their objectives, since if they manage to lower the IQ <90 of the intelligent races, they will have an almost absolute power of intellectual supremacy. The Ashkenazis of IQ = 110 know it very well that's why they reproduce only among themselves, (Intelligence is a hereditary genetic factor), but they promote degrading multiculturalism among others.

    Nathan says:

    One vital aspect of the jews’ monopoly of domestic force since WWII has been their ability through their media and well-funded advocacy groups to stoke blacks as vengeance proxies to intimidate and cow white people. The credibility of this “soldier class” of blacks—of murderers, thugs, rioters and rapists—is twofold: First, blacks really do murder, rape, riot, and assault by orders of magnitude greater than other races; and, second, the jewish media have their backs to justify and romanticize their victimizations. You only need have listened to the very jewish CNN or read the very jewish Washington Post or New York Times the last two weeks to conclude these jewish media are little more than BLM advocacy arms for our intimidation and extinction, or that ultimately jews are what make these blacks’ threat of force (i.e., “no justice, no peace”) meaningful. Our “soldier class” by contrast, when it’s not dying of drug overdoses to enrich the Sacklers or to protect Israel, can march with mere tiki torches in Charlottesville and live in infamy among these media, and consequently the public, for eternity–notwithstanding that their white fathers and grandfathers killed several million of their own race to liberate these jews to, it turn outs, integrate, bus, mongrelize, and extinguish their history and posterity. Such is the thanks our fathers and grandfathers get—from the jews. Nevertheless, I have to say I’m not into guns and armored car heists, and though Bob Mathews and I are both white advocates, I don’t think we would have ever clicked socially. Ironically, I’m probably more jewish than Bob strategically. Or, to summarize a report in the London Sunday Times I read many years ago: “Israel is reportedly developing a biological weapon that would harm Arabs while leaving Jews unaffected. This ‘ethno-bomb’ program is based at Israel’s Nes Tziyona research facility. Israeli scientists are trying to modify viruses and bacteria to alter DNA inside living cells and to attack only those cells bearing Arabic genes.”

    Could it be that white survival lies in similar research? That heirs apparent of James Watson and Francis Crick, their genius bumped to a community college by virtue of affirmative action, are working quietly in a lonely lab somewhere for our salvation? If so, I can promise you, Arabs are the least of their concerns.

    I was sympathetic up until I read, “Bob and two others in the group robbed a porn shop in Spokane. One of Bob’s partners slugged one of the clerks. Their take was $36. Bob went into a Seattle branch of Citibank, handed the teller a note and walked off with almost $26,000…”

    That is not a political movement. It is common criminality. It endangers innocent bystanders and indirectly hurts other people who are innocent.

    In practical terms it leads to death or prison. It is also sure to lead to blowback against white nationalists and white people in general.

    White nationalism is a political movement. A political movement must appeal to a large enough group of people in order to change society or form a new nation and society. That cannot be done through criminal behavior. It cannot be done using tactics that inspire more sympathy for the victims than for the perpetrators.

    White nationalists are frustrated. White people are asleep. We who are pro-white see their future if things continue as they have been, but they do not.

    Well, there is nothing we can do to change that beyond what we have been doing, which is trying to wake them up. We can only do our part. It is up to them to do the rest.

    Will they? I think it is possible, considering what has been happening during the last few weeks. We shall see.

    America is going to resolve its racial conflicts (possible; but not looking promising at this point), break up into separate ethnostates, or turn into another South Africa.

    We need to be prepared for each of these possible outcomes. When I say “we,” I mean younger people. I’ve lived most of my life. So the future — whatever it holds — is not as important to me as it is to the younger generations.

      I don’t know how one prepares for it if not getting off the usury hamster-wheel and building something such as the William Pierce Library and White living space– whatever that takes. I for one don’t hold much hope that the young people with whom I’m acquainted will ever be prepared for a South Africa-type future but I see that as already here and simply becoming worse in the future.

      The cure for this attitude is facing reality rather than fantasies from comic books/porn to the childish view of life-after-death: Life goes on and it will either do so with Whites or without them. What I particularly appreciate about Dr. Pierce’s approach was teaching his spiritual descendants to teach this principal and what he coined Cosmotheism. In many cases it is exactly deprogramming cultists which has about the same prognosis as working with alcoholics, smokers, and meth addicts. Building is going to have to begin anew with brand-new young people and that is why careful marriage, family, and waging war on everything antithetical to those values including pornography and usury by whatever means is effective is necessary. Yes, building media, awareness, and hope through publishing on examples that encourage is important but those who are literally destroying and preventing our people, aren’t just writing and talking about doing it: It is war, genocide, and discouragement is one of our biggest obstacles. Associate with those who are positive

        Setting aside the “two wrongs don’t make a right” argument, engaging in criminal behavior is problematic for two reasons: The most important reason in my view is the possible effect on innocent bystanders. A gun gets fired, a stray bullet hits an innocent person. That is just wrong. But it can and does happen.

        The second reason is that criminal behavior is not a practical way to achieve positive outcomes for white people. Those who might otherwise become allies won’t be sympathetic.

        It is an inconvenient but true fact that when right is on your side, you have to behave accordingly. You have to be honorable. You are held to a higher standard.

        The scum who “get away” with everything are not honorable. Neither are the people who let them get away with it. That, unfortunately, is a very large group of white people. If they do not wake up and change, then it is over. There is nothing left to do.

        But I will fight for as long as I can to enlighten them. And I think that events will help me in that regard. If we look at the history of America, we know that the corruption has been with us almost from the very beginning. But white people have only recently had reason to feel that they are being targeted simply because they are white.

        It began roughly seventy years ago with forced racial integration, followed by affirmative action and mass immigration. All of this was tolerated and overlooked. You were supposed to “buck up” and make it on your own as a white man in spite of these problems for white people.

        But now, today, we see corporations allied with BLM and Antifa. We see the “white privilege” concept being coupled with the claim that white people are genetically and irredeemably racist and evil. We see Democrats promoting this anti-white racism and Republicans pretending that it doesn’t exist.

        Whites still have a chance. They make up at least 58% of the U.S. population. What are they going to do in response to all of this open hatred? We know that a small percentage of whites are very pro-white and Jew-wise. A larger percentage of whites are anti-white. The great majority fall in the middle. By now, we should know that politicians are not going to save us. So what are white people going to do?

        I suggest three possibilities: 1) There will be enough push-back that the Democrats are defeated and the anti-white nonsense is rejected. In that scenario, the races will get along and we will all be “Americans.” This is the Trump 2020 scenario.

        2) There will be “white flight” away from cities and the beginnings of the formation of white ethnostates. The government won’t like this, of course, so there will be a lot of problems, up to and including civil war and massive population relocations.

        3) Things will continue as they have been. The majority of whites will be bred out of existence and/or exterminated. Pro-white, Jew-wise whites will form enclaves to defend themselves or leave the country.

        One idea that I’ve had is that southeastern Alaska might be a good place for this relatively small group of whites to retreat to. It’s isolated both from the lower forty-eight states and the rest of Alaska, and is right next to Canada.

      You are exactly right Eric.

      I didn’t START getting woke to how the Jews were playing race until about 5 years ago If I had read this Griffith essay back then, I might have shuddered and gone back to sleep. This is just vintage crack pot right wing stuff that the Left loves because it fits the stereotype of the crazy Anglo guy with too many guns. No matter how bad it gets, WE have to be the intellectuals raising awareness of real history and biology. Lets leave the craziness to the Left

      “That is not a political movement. It is common criminality. It endangers innocent bystanders and indirectly hurts other people who are innocent.

      In practical terms it leads to death or prison. It is also sure to lead to blowback against white nationalists and white people in general.”


      Couldn’t agree more.

    A moving story and a heroic person. But before someone tries to imitate him, let us ask: what distinguishes him from, e.g., Leonidas? Leonidas had a strategy: delaying the Persian inroad into Greece until the Athenians could win the decisive battle at sea. Mathews had no visible strategy, so his sacrifice didn’t change history in any sense. He could have done more with less sacrifice.

    The solution is simply repudiating fraudulent debt and deciding for yourself whether that’s right or wrong rather than searching “scripture” for “fraud vitiates everything” and expecting not to have to defend your life, liberty, and honor, not to mention property you bought on what Brits refer-to as “high purchase” meaning mortgaging a depreciating asset in a rigged game. Understanding and even teaching it is one thing while quitting it altogether– as a nation as well as individually- makes a difference you must take a damn the torpedoes position including self-defense..

    Today most people would never be able to save up to build a house without a loan or apartment especially not on any city.

    The reason is our technology, design and high level driven high IQ white driven economy. Which makes salaries in the west high. Hence it is expensive with land and labour.

    So we need to have loans in order to have somewhere to live.

    Loans are not good. I advise everyone to try to keep away from them for many reasons.

    And it’s not the jewish banks. Cause there aren’t any big jewish banks in the us now for example and very few in europe. Although jews did invent interests thing and loans (egyptian exile, bible). Its now Bank of America (Italian mafia?)and other non jewish banks who run that kind of thing.

    Afro americans have alot of banks surprisingly stabile ones, I think 7 ones in total.

    Often these racemixed pedophile gypsy bastards use nazi contacts from wwII to attack whites. So nazism has become the white peoples enemy a tool for racemixing with half gypsies and the like and their aggresive murder driven attacks on white businesses.

    Maybe Hitlers economy guy Martin Bormann was part gypsy. They invested in gypsy (half gypsy) companies after the war. His family also invests in jews a lot i heard. Maybe alot of people in general in the west are part gypsy and many may not even know it…

    A great article, indeed. Like him or not, Matthews is a real White revolutionary martyr, 40-50 years ahead of his time.

    It’s a shame this fellow wasn’t mentored by a wiser more temperate leader, although he wasn’t yet teachable.

    He was a typical warrior type that could have excelled in an open tank battle. He fought using the wrong tactics in a battle that still required a different approach, this isn’t yet an ‘open’ battle, it’s still underground. Good opportunities and assets can easily be wasted by a lack of understanding of the type war and the phase this war was in at the time.

    Yes, I agree, his actions were foolhardy and his vision was inadequate but he could have been an asset if his energy was channeled into more strategic work. He was still immature for the type of work that was needed back then.

      Angelicus says:

      Excellent assessment of the man and the circumstances that led to his tragic death.

      Yes, he was not a smart fellow, but who has not made wrong decisions? It is very easy to criticize him now with the benefit of hindsight, in fact, an obnoxious and arrogant fellow here called him a moron and even said that “he got what was coming to him”.

      Yes, Bob Matthews was foolish and did not achieve anything, but he did not betray anyone or surrendered like a coward to apologize later for what he did. He does not deserve to be insulted in that way.

    • Canadian guy
      Canadian guy says:

      my thoughts exactly. A well organized people can make use of even the most extreme types since their bravery can be valuable if properly channeled. But, as with all warriors, without an intelligent general that can give them direction, their actions are useless.

    It’s a shame that Bob Matthews has been largely forgotten today, even in WN circles. He said how cowardly and degenerate we were back in 1984, I can’t even imagine what he would say today.

      He would say, “I warned you but you wouldn’t listen.”

      Bob is not forgotten by those who count, Kevin. His “open letter to Congress,” and his “Declaration of War” will be read by generations of kinsmen who follow. His “Call to Arms” recorded speech will be available on volume 10 of the Power of Truth CD series, available here later this month, here:
