United States

In the Name of Hitler

“We must secure the existence of our people and for white kids”

This words – pronounced by David Lane – comes directly from “Mein Kampf” and represent one of the main concepts of the American National Socialist Movement. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center in Washington, the NSM is now-a-days the most important and active party of the extreme right in the United States and counts at least 61 groups in 35 states. Born in 1974 – from the ashes of the American Nazi Party – the movement roots its ideals in defense of the rights of the white race combining the best (worse…) of capitalism and socialism. Members of the movement call themselves “organization for the civil rights of whites”. The American National Socialist Party states 25 points in its political philosophy: among these there are the request to all non-whites to leave the U.S., the denial of citizenship to Jews and gays, the discharge from NATO, the WTO and the International Monetary Fund, the expulsion of foreign nationals in the event that the U.S could not provide resources for the entire population and the nationalization of enterprises and companies, if needed.

National congresses are held twice a year and are characterized by real paramilitary parades during which many members wear uniforms of the Sturmabteilung, the paramilitary wing assault divisions of the German Nazi party used during World War II. Nazi salutes, deliveries of degrees and swastikas can be seen everywhere, of course. Plus very special tattoos, including the 88 number, the numeric transliteration of the double H of the “Heil Hitler” slogan.
