Tom Metzger on NSM rally

Soon after the rally in Lansing I read that Tom Metzger was in attendance. At first I was surprised at this. Reflecting some more this makes sense. Metzger who has been on the Westcoast for the last 30 some years has recently moved back to the Midwest, possibly Indiana, where I think he is originally from. This would put him only a few hours drive from Lansing. Metzger has recently disbanded W.A.R. and is now doing a project called, The Insurgent. He comes across as "non-sectarian". He obviously is a nazi partisan but he seems to critically support alot of the movement, especially if they are "active" - and that is definatley what the NSM is.

Below is Metzger's take on the situation. I'm not posting this stuff as any kind of endorsement. Only to let people see what others in their movement are saying. Metzger is looking around and analyzing what works and what is gonna drive people away from White fascism. - RX

From Metzger:

On Saturday I was able to view the demonstration from the audience side of the fence. This was probably the most secure event I have seen but also one that had serious negative effects on free speech and assembly.

About one half block from the viewing area check points were set up .Beyond that for several blocks no auto or truck traffic was allowed. At the check points a total body check was made just short of a strip search identical to an airport search.

You can imagine what a slow project that was with several hundred people attending. There were two holding pens of 6 foot chain link plus chain link between the entire audience and the capital steps where the NSM were to speak. Both holding pens would hold perhaps two to 3 hundred people with locks on the only exits to these pens. Of course they were unlocked but could easily be quickly locked if things got to tough for the cops to handle. Essentially when you entered either you were agreeing to a quasi arrest. You did not have to enter either pen since there was ample room between the two areas to stand view and listen.

The problem was many fold. The NSM was not allowed to be closer than about 400 ft. from the crowd. They were not allowed a P.A. system that was effectively heard by much of the crowd. Essentially they were voluntarily under arrest because the police caused them to meet with them at a police controlled area and be rigorously searched then agree to ride in police vans to the event.

This is not a good thing for the NSM since it demonstrates to the public that their members are completely under police protection. We know this is not for the best interests of the revolutionary struggle. We also know it is a wrong perception that the social Marxist promote to identify our struggle as a State assisted struggle. The entire set up for the event was for the convenience of the state and not free speech.

Only the vary boldest of people that supported the NSM cause or the Racial Separatist cause would dare attend such a gathering and be placed in a virtual jail surrounded by hundreds of social Marxists many bent on violence to squash free speech. In this case only about 6 or seven brave civilian people chase to do so.

The only observable violence that occurred was when many of the anti's started filtering into the supporter chain linked area. Even though this was obvious to the police it was not stopped until the anti's surrounded the supporters and attacked them. It was a short fight and the supporters did well considering the odds. Finally the mounted police entered to drive the Social Marxist's out. This was bad because it allowed the press to get photos misleading the public that the NSM members were beaten by the crowd . Its a clever tactic the media use.

Since it was a reasonably small area for a dozen horses to operate this was a stupid act by police that endangered everyone when they had hundreds of on foot cops available to do the job quicker and more safely.

It is my opinion the this was no accident but the police did not want to have pictures in the news of foot soldier cops beating on the anti's while horses tended to obscure the view of prying cameras.

Another tactic that ties the neo con capitalists to the social Marxists was police helicopters hovering so low that much of the speakers were almost impossible to hear. Also down town business were either instructed to shut down or scared into it by system cops and their bosses.
The content of the speeches were generally good but in some cases sent a mixed message. I monitored the crowd quite carefully as to their response. Discounting the professional so called Social Marxist's who would never agree with anything a Nazi said no matter how logical . There were many curious observers that a times agreed with the speakers.

When the speakers attacked Bush, Washington, big business, environmental issues, the war in Iraq along with other imperialist activities many in the crowd around me in the anti section made approving comments. Some speakers unnecessarily baited the crowd because it was made up largely of the lowest elements just their for the circus. I certainly agreed in principal but not in the tactic. Its a hard line to walk but even I who was surrounded by screaming morons so close they were touching me see the benefit of not using that tactic since it sends a wrong message to those Whites on the fence and are still salvageable.
The contingent of NSM was much better than usual. It appeared that nearly one hundred were on the steps of the state house and their salutes were quite audible. The contingent of around 4 ladies who appeared had an effect on the crowd, To many it softened their insults quite a bit. To others primarily niggers and whigger druggies you can imagine what they were screaming.
Tactically I must say the organized opposition put on a good show as they showed up at least a three hundred strong beyond the checkpoints marching up and down and around the intersections.They were loud with drums and large brightly painted canvas signs. Much more impressive than NSM members being hearded around by the cops unable to be close to the crowd.

Before you get over my ass understand one thing . I simply calls them the way I sees them. Its never personal or meant to support the enemy.

I talked to many of these people in the crowd and found many could be reached at least on some points. Of course I could not identify myself for obvious reasons.
In conclusion I feel the demonstration served a few conclusions. The NSM did not lose ground with those that agree and respect the guts it takes to put on the shirt as my National Socialist friends used to say back in Rockwell's day. But the albatross of uniformed Nazi's will always only appeal to a tiny percentage of Whites even if many do secretly admire the National Socialists.
To get around the obvious visible road blocks that have been practiced ever since Rockwell operated in a similar manner their needs to be a modernization of National Socialism to bring it into the 21st century and leave the 30's and 40's to history. In Russia and eastern Europe did you notice how hard core communist's repackaged themselves and slipped right back into power? It is not cowardice to repackage oneself or a movement as long as it moves one closer to a goal.

I stood in the crowd I tried to put myself in the shoes of those seriously interested. Would I be more apt to consider the argument from a person in working class clothes or in black or dark blue suits with red ties or someone who looks like he or she walked off the set of a Hollywood Jew movie about the third Reich.? Would I be more impressed if I saw normal looking Whites picketing the big outsourcing corporations?

Or joining into large anti war demonstrations gradually recruiting mislead people on the left.They must be convinced that the present leadership of the left consciously or sub consciously support the same wishes or the elitist money grubbers that they shake their fist at.

The present leftist opposes globalization, war, environmental destruction, over population etc several other points The Insurgent can agree on these points also. In today's sense of the word we are not Nationalists and by today's capture of Socialism by the Jews and its perversion we are not Socialists or Capitalist either.

So we are simply White and fanatically promote a healthy White Society world wide. Right and left are meaningless buzz words today that only serve to divide White people. That's just what our masters want.

So lets really think over our direction no matter what group or faction or network you support.

The message must be clarified and made simple. Our skin is our uniform . We need no other.PS. If I didn't offend everyone then call me and I will try to figure a way to do so.

I can't believe we (I) didn't spot this scumbag if he was truly walking around the area.

I dont think many were expecting Metzger to be at the rally. And to be honest, for many of the newer anti-fascists, i wonder how many of them actually know of Metzger? He has moved away from being the major public figure he used to be in the 1980's W.A.R. era. He has moved on to be kind of the elder statesman of the radical fascist movement. Looking at his site he would rather be playing the covert lone wolf role than anything the NSM may do.

Since he was there to get an overall vibe of the event, was not hanging with the nazis (in fact he was mingling with the antiracist opposition), and was probably trying to not look like a suspicious nazi if people did see him they either, A) thought little of him, perhaps thinking him a curiosity seeker or an anti-racist, or B) thought he was a cop, which is (unfortuanatley) not uncommon to think when you see an older white straight looking guy hanging around in the middle of the protest. If the later was the case then it would be normal to avoid the guy - least you wind up arrested.

Either way, i think the radical antifascists have to be better at understanding the different sides, who is connecting or is critical of who and why, and what their politics and strategies are. Too often the antiracists just reduce the facists to their more comical shortcomings.

Beyond all this, i wonder what others think of Metzger's critique?
