CREATIVE AND CONSTRUCTIVE MODELS
FOR EFFECTIVE NATIONALIST POLITICAL ACTION
A Commentary And Critique On The Current State Of Nationalist Affairs
By Harrell Rhome, Ph.D.
(Colaboración para TSUNAMI POLITICO)
Hello again to all my readers. My article is a modern history feature about an active nationalist group in Argentina, a large nation settled by Europeans, about which most Americans, nationalists or not, know very little. This article is also, as you will see, a brief venture into nationalist political theory, an exercise in what I choose to call metaphysical politics. It appeared as an exclusive feature for the March 2006 issue of The Nationalist Times, a courageous newspaper, and I say “thanks” to Ed./Pub. Don Wassall and his staff. To learn more, visit www.anu.org, and see a photo of the controversial symbol, described below.
words are especially meaningful here in 2006, when a core cadre of
revisionists -- Zundel, Rudolf, Irving, et al -- is imprisoned for
thought crimes. Thousands
of words will be written about this tragedy, but I want to share a
positive story about a nationalist, populist, politically revisionist
movements have already had tremendous impact in Venezuela and Bolivia,
but their leadership and inspiration comes mostly from the Left.
The movement featured here is also a movement of the people,
dedicated to progress and positivism for their nation.
But they are not inspired, by the weak and ineffective ideologies
of the left, being solidly rooted in classic Western nationalist thought,
a true Third Way between the equally destructive ravages of Capitalism
and Communism. This is a
story of a seed that is growing into a beautiful plant, a story of
progress and activism in the face of stern opposition from the Powers
That Be. While there are
volumes about the nationalist movements of Europe, which are on the rise,
our sole focus is on the Americas, both South and North.
I am not saying that what is presented here is any kind of
“magic key”, but join me in a brief look at a dignified, dedicated
and successful populist/nationalist movement.
This article is intended for anti-globalist, nationalist-minded
readers all over the world, but especially those who do not read the
NEW TRIUMPH PARTY OF ARGENTINA: STRONG
INTERNET PRESENCE LEADS TO FEET ON THE STREET
Some time ago, I discovered a colorful and useful web site with a
name I really liked: The City Of Free Expression (Ciudad de Libre
Accompanied by my trusty and travel-worn Spanish dictionary, I
began spending time in this virtual city.
Even if you don’t read very much Spanish, visit anyway to see
photos and controversial party images (more below).
If the ever vigilant anti-anti-semitic groups are correct, the
City of Free Expression is a portal to over 300 “nazi”,
“fascist” and “extremist” (read “nationalist”, “patriotic”)
Internet sites. Indeed, it
is a direct link to the subject of this article, the New Triumph Party (Partido
Nuevo Triunfo), PNT. If
La Ciudad truly is the host to that many sites, this further
demonstrates their positive, persevering political activism.
However, this was never limited to sending email and launching
web sites. Nationalist
comrades began to meet together for positive change in Argentina, a
nation with tremendous potential. But,
sadly, Argentina is also the perfect example of a victim nation in the
clutches of the international monetary mafia.
In spite of this, a New Hope, a New Model, a New Way presents
itself under the influence of an inspiring and dedicated movement.
A new political party was founded, with election campaigns,
public meetings, parades and demonstrations soon to follow.
BIONDINI, THE KALKI OF MODERN POLITICS
Among the links at La
Ciudad is the Red Kalki News Agency, with new postings each week,
and a journalist by the same nom de plume.
As a student of ancient Indo-Aryan religions, I know that Kalki
is to be the tenth and final Avatar of our present cosmic age.
Kalki, manifested as a great white horse carrying an angry Vishnu
on his back, will sweep away the old corrupted and decayed order (Kaliyuga)
and cleanse the world in preparation for a New Order, a New Age (Majayuga).
This is exactly what nationalists, today and yesterday, have
always attempted, but alas, have not always succeeded.
This kind of creative and cataclysmic change is exactly what the
Argentine Political Kalki, Alejandro Biondini, and the New Triumph Party
have as their goal. And,
Christian readers: don’t get upset about the Kaliyuga and all of that.
That is merely my personal interest.
The principles of the PNT are solidly and traditionally
MOVEMENT CREATES CONTROVERSY FROM THE BEGINNING
Alejandro Biondini is not
just a good writer, but also an orator and effective organizer.
He began his political activities in the 1980s, founding
National Alert, (Alerta Nacional) in 1986. After
attracting numerous interested followers on the Internet, in 1990, he
organized the Nationalist Workers Party (Partido Nacionalista de los
Trabajadores) in 1990. In
1996, he created the National Socialist Youth of Argentina (Juventud
Nacionalsocialista Argentina – JNSA), attracting young folk
between 18 and 30 years. Among
other controversial stands, the JNSA web site criticized the 1991 ban on
the use of the Hakenkreuz symbol.
By 1998, the national campaign began in full force, later
coalescing into the PNT and the now well-known City of Free Expression,
a powerful Internet presence and nationalist resource.
The very up-to-date Red Kalki News Agency and the new party
banner soon attracted new readers, members -- and attention.
In September 2000, the PNT held a conference in a Buenos Aires
hotel. The commercial TV
channel, Crónica, broadcast the proceedings, including a speech by
controversial Chilean nationalist leader Alexis López Tapia.
The party continued their activism during 2001 and 2002,
including participation in municipal elections, getting ready for the
2003 presidential campaign. While
garnering only a few votes, Mr. Biondini was a very active and
attractive candidate, gaining name recognition and media exposure for
the PNT’s positions on issues vital to the Argentine people.
SYMBOL CAUSES POLITICALLY-INCORRECT FIRESTORM
party symbol is very politically incorrect, to say the least.
It now resembles a European style seven, but in the revolutionary
red setting, one has little doubt of the origin.
In the beginning, it was not just a likeness, but the entire,
bold, unabashed Hakenkreuz itself!
Mr. Biondini served a year and a half in prison in 1996 for
displaying the old Indo-Aryan symbol on the cover of his Libre
Opinion publication. He
was convicted under so-called anti-discrimination laws, even after
presenting evidence that the hooked cross was nothing more than an
ancient solar symbol – which, assuredly, it is.
While the PNT had the truth, once again, the enemy had the power
– and they used it to oppress and silence Biondini.
This fortunately failed, but after that, the PNT adopted the new
symbol. Is there any
connection with the number seven? Maybe
not, but I didn’t read everything.
Nonetheless, if you like numerical symbolism, then connect with
the PNT’s seven principles for both spiritual and political
following commentary and position statement is my own, and not
necessarily that of the PNT.
SEVEN VIRTUES OF THE NATIONALIST ACTIVIST
SPIRITUAL STRENGTH AND COURAGE
-- Discipline -- Loyalty -- Solidarity -- Discretion -- Patience -- and
– Disciplina – Lealtad – Solidaridad – Discrecion – Paciencia
– y Alegria.
As I meditated on
these lofty themes, the Seven Virtues of the Nationalist Activist, I
reflected on the words of Third Position theoretician, Derek Holland.
"To the Political Soldier, it must be said:
we stand before the Apocalypse!
Gird yourself and prepare for battle! …
and relativists, the tyrants of the modern world, fear Death because for
them Death is the End. But for us, revolutionary warriors, Death is
not the End, but the Beginning. It is the doorway through which the
Political Soldier alone can pass, for it leads to the world of the Elect
- of those who fought on the Way of Truth, who sacrificed and struggled,
and who merited their Just Reward.”
are truly inspirational words. When
operating on this level, we know that many of us have already met death,
and that more are to follow. Yet,
even though strange in the eyes of the world, we are not really
concerned! At this level of
awareness, we are liberated from the fear of death, knowing that the
living ideas of our Light-Seeking Movement are eternal and forever.
Even if the Dark Forces kill all of us but one loyal comrade, the
ideas live on. The movement
of Truth and Light never dies. It
recreates and renews itself over and over, always resurfacing at the
proper times and places. This

Discretion and Patience, that leads to the genuine Joy of the final

Julius Evola said much the same thing.
“The only thing that matters today is the activity of those who
can ride the wave and remain firm in their principles, unmoved by… the
fevers, the convulsions, the superstitions, and the prostitutions that
characterize modern generations.”
And, he recognized the crucial need for a spiritual foundation.
little hope that anything may be saved when, among the leaders of a new
movement, there are no men capable of integrating the material struggle
with a secret and inexorable knowledge, one that is not at the service
of dark forces but stands instead on the side of the luminous principle

Even a few activists committed to these values can literally
Any successful nationalist movement must move forward from a
solid spiritual base. This
is evident to almost anyone who studies the past.
A New Order of Spiritual Awareness is the first step toward
ultimate victory for the nationalist activist, for the later doctrines
and principles – and actions -- rise from this foundation.

PARTY PLATFORM FOR A NEW NATION, FREE OF INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND (IMF)
USURY AND AMERICAN HEGEMONY
There is neither time nor space to do it justice here, but those
who examine it will see that the PNT is a serious political party, with
a carefully drafted thirty-four-point program for governing the nation.
A Kalki government? Probably
not, but with the way situations can change in the blink of an eye, I
wouldn’t entirely rule it out either.
The PNT intends to thoroughly reconstruct Argentine society.
Universal military service would guarantee a strong nation, well
able to defend itself. American
readers must remember that lack of military preparedness was greatly
responsible for the Malvinas War defeat in the early 1980s.
For the Argentine patriot, this must never happen again.
Moreover, the program demands the return of ALL territory ever
taken from Argentina, including of course, the Malvinas Islands.
The New Argentina would implement a completely pristine,
non-usurious economic system, effectively freeing it from the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) dictatorship that has maintained a
stranglehold on this nation. Naturally,
like all forward thinking South Americans, the PNT also knows that the
USA hegemony must end. There
is much, much more to this well constructed program.

NATIONALIST REPUBLIC MUST BE ECONOMICALLY INDEPENDENT
True independence, genuine
personal and national sovereignty, is essentially based in economics.
If a nation cannot support itself, then it is, by necessity,
compelled to make alliances and accept negative usurious debt terms.
Argentina is the eighth largest country in the world.
By all rights, it should be a prosperous state.
If the non-usurious economic reforms of the PNT were adopted,
with a foreign policy independent of various hegemonies, it would be.
There is no reason why the USA. (or certain regions within it) cannot be
almost totally self-sufficient as well.
Ideally, such nation-states would achieve a currency that would
be valuable on the world money market.
A totally non-usurious system would require complex logistics to
implement, but the first step could be interest-free loans, within its
borders. Instead of the
corrupt “foreign aid” system, an independent nation-state might
decide to make a loan to another friendly nation in need.
Such loans, in country and out, could be more like loans from
Islamic non-usurious banks. They
regard the outlay of funds, not as a loan, but as an investment, a
partnership, intended to make money for the lender as well as the
borrower, a true win-win model. There
are other ideas as well, but it is surely enough to say once again –
there will never be a truly independent state without economic
this means a non-usurious system.
BRIEF REPORT ON NATIONALIST MOVEMENTS IN NORTH AMERICA
know mail will come; telling me about other plans and groups.
An omission in no way implies disrespect or disdain for those not
cited. I truly wish them
all well, but choose to limit my coverage (in this particular article,
at least) to the ones below. Not
surprisingly, I hope that some of the models and concepts presented
herein will inform and enlighten all nationalist-minded readers and
writers, no matter what party or group or position they endorse.
Canada has a great activist model with Canadian Association For
Expression (CAFE). The
Canadian Nationalist Party (CNP) continues its efforts, and the
Northwest Homeland project in the USA also has Canadian sympathizers.
There probably are other groups and figures unknown to me, and we
must note that there are still plenty of independence-minded folk in
Quebec. My comments about
Canada are brief because our primary focus is on the USA.
good news is that there are several movements, some rather new.
The bad news is that, so far, they have had minimal impact, and,
the most successful one has nothing to do with Euro-Americans at all!
I’m told that groups in Vermont have seceded, but heard little
more. Christian activists are moving to South Carolina with plans for
eventual politically impact, and the Free State movement has targeted
New Hampshire, but again, I have not heard much more.
The Northwest Homeland project is still under way, but greatly
deterred by lack of funds and actual feet on the ground.
If it, like the PNT, could go from the Internet, where it
apparently has a number of followers, to settlers on the ground, this
one might bear fruit. On
another part of the spectrum, the Nation of Islam continues their Black
Nationalist separatist agenda, and they have plenty of feet on the
ground. Regardless of your
view of the NOI, their operation is diligent, dedicated, and spiritual.
As did American nationalist George Lincoln Rockwell, I wish them
Republic of Texas is back, with a “capital” (a former hospital
building), and other accoutrements of a state.
If you remember, the leaders of a former Republic of Texas group
are serving long prison terms for an armed encounter with state police.
In reality, Texas is a very viable nation-state possibility, and
there are some feet on the ground.
If the PNT model of demanding return of land that was seized or
coerced away were successful, Texas would be one of the largest nations
in the world. But, like
many other Americans, most Texans don’t really think regional
independence is viable, nor is it desirable to the business community.
Not to mention that as of 2004, Texas is a majority Mexican-American
state. This is not to say
that a Republic of Texas cannot rise again, but the climate is not right
-- at least not for Euro-Americans (see Aztlan, below).
there is a healthy and active movement of those following the model of
the Confederate States of America, some regarding the CSA as still in
legal existence. That’s
fine, but exactly how such a nation state can be reconstituted is a
major logistical problem, given the new population of the South, not
nearly so white and “southern” as it once was.
On a positive note, CSA has feet on the ground that turn out for
rallies demanding respect for the old flag and related patriotic issues,
tune in to radio shows, support candidates and causes, and participate
at CSA-related web sites. There
is a lot of enthusiasm, and spiritual underpinning, for this activist
group. The CSA constitution
is an important model nationalist document.
Now, as to the original CSA:
it was far from perfect, having enslaved itself from the
beginning to the world banking and trade cartel, then chiefly manifested
in the powerful banking houses of Europe.
Moreover, they allowed Judah P. Benjamin (a Rothschild agent) to
hold the purse strings! We
all know Confederate money was a sad joke, but are we “shocked and
surprised”? Even if they
had won the war, the CSA would have been even deeper in Rothschild debt.
The new CSA will have to do better than this – and I think they
will. Following the PNT
model of just saying “no” to usury (perhaps getting Southern bankers
to make some exploratory no-interest loans?) might give even more thrust
to this movement. CSA has
supporters in several states, including some outside the Old South.
A courageous and creative alternative to the usury monster might
just do the trick. Could we
someday have Confederate money that is actually worth something?
It’s not impossible, you know.
now last, but surely not least, we look at the most successful new
nation project in North America, that of Aztlan, the aggressive and well
planned movement of the “Chicanos” (mostly Mexicans and
Mexican-Americans) to dominate the states that once were part of Mexico
until 1848, after an imperialistic war displaced them.
But they are displaced no more, having succeeded by birth rate
and immigration where their more thinly spread ancestors were overcome.
If successful (and it very well could be!), it would claim most
of the American West, up into the Northwest as well.
It would be both a new nation, and an ancient nation finally
restored to La Raza, the brown race.
Aztlan has taken several bold in-your-face stands against
oppressive government here in the states, and oppression in Palestine,
and stands solidly against the Iraq War.
Moreover, they clearly and bravely recognize and expose the dark
forces for who and what they are. As
far as activist followers, they have them, but mostly in Los Angeles –
for right now. This is
surely a movement to watch, with both a strong Internet presence and
feet on the ground -- eventually it could be tens of millions.
There is an Aztlan governmental structure already in place.
If Euro-Americans had such a network, the future might look a lot
brighter! Check it all out
with numerous articles in English.
TO THE FUTURE
While parts of the PNT model are not applicable in all places, others are quite useful and inspirational. Intense and sincere spiritually based patriotism combined with a workable program has attracted a growing number of followers. Sadly, nothing like this has happened in the USA in over seventy years. The day of the old patriot right wing, which was never very successful anyway, has come and gone. Are Argentineans more patriotic than Americans? Yes, I think so. Argentineans are, fundamentally, part of a homogenous population with origins in Europe. This is no longer true in the USA. A New Patriotism, based on new and creative ideas for a viable nation-state, will have to arise here, but it will never sweep the whole country. Just don’t expect that the essentially de-Europeanized USA to respond that way, except in certain marked regional exceptions. If the doomsayers are correct about an oncoming economic collapse (and they probably are), then the opportunity may be at hand for nationalist groups to once again rise to the challenge. They can be the catalyst that causes the world to shake off the chains of oppression that the dark forces have placed upon us. Devolution and Revolution are on the horizon, and a New Nationalism will come forth in the crucial phase. True and brave leaders will arise when the people are ready to sweep away the old corrupt order and usher in the New. Aztlan and other non-Euro-Americans, such as over 6,000,000 American Muslims and assorted other ethnic enclaves, are preparing for pivotal events in a rapidly devolving USA. I have no doubt that the PNT is ready in their homeland. Will Euro-American nationalists be ready when that decisive moment comes? I hope so.
