Hobbyism, Blobs, and Retards - keeping them here for now

The Perils of Hobbyism
by William Pierce
National Alliance Bulletin of November-December 1992


Among racially conscious White Americans there are, unfortunately, a number whose emotional and intellectual development became permanently stalled somewhere around puberty. They are the folks who are attracted to the National Alliance not because it offers them a means to work for the survival and progress of the race, but because they hope it will provide them an opportunity to meet others who also like to dress up in home-made SS uniforms and salute themselves in the bedroom mirror, swap Nazi mementos, and engage in titillating gossip about the so-called “movement.” These are the hobbyists, about which much more is said in the new Membership Handbook, soon to be published.

We try to weed out the hobbyists when they apply for membership, just as we weed out homosexuals and drug abusers, but sometimes one or two of them manage to sneak in nevertheless. Not only are they a potential source of embarrassment if a newspaper reporter ever should get hold of one of them, but they actually can be disruptive by distracting serious, mature members with their juvenile fixation on “movement” gossip and by providing the enemies of our people with information. Our enemies, in fact, make very profitable use of these pitiable creatures by taking advantage of their manifest weaknesses. In return for a few hundred dollars a month for liquor or drugs, they can employ one of them as a “verifier,” for example. A “verifier” is a hobbyist who is used to make contact with putative members of a patriotic organization and verify that they are, in fact, members and then to acquire from them the names of other members or other information which might be useful to his employers. The fact that he can drop names and exhibit some familiarity with “movement” activities and personalities gives him an entree among other hobbyists which an outsider usually doesn't have.

Hobbyists interact mostly with each other, which limits the damage they are able to cause; a serious member contacted by a “verifier” will not be interested in exchanging gossip with him. The Alliance’s very small (and decreasing) number of hobbyists gives us a decided advantage in this regard. Nevertheless, several members have reported being contacted by a notorious hobbyist recently who attempted to induce them into corresponding with him and providing him with information about the Alliance.

This hobbyist, Harold Covington, is currently using the pseudonym “Winston Smith” as well as his own name. He most often uses as a mailing address a post office box in Raleigh, North Carolina, but he also has used other addresses from time to time. He is 37 years old, is grossly overweight, and has hobbied over the years with some of the most bizarre and disgusting characters in the lunatic fringe of the “movement,” most notably as second-in-command to the half-Jewish American Nazi Party leader Frank Collin (bom Cohn), who was convicted in 1980 of homosexually molesting young boys in his Chicago headquarters.

Covington has insinuated in his recent letters that our Membership Coordinator, Will Williams, is a homosexual, a police informer, and an impostor who falsely claims to be a former Special Forces officer. The outrageousness of his charges seems to be calculated to provoke a response from those to whom he writes.

Before he began writing to Alliance members, Covington spent most of his waking hours during the previous two years harassing a racially oriented organization headquartered at the time in North Carolina, the Church of the Creator, led by Ben Klassen. He wrote hundreds of letters, some ten pages or more in length, to members of that group asserting that Klassen was a Jew, a homosexual, a pederast, and a murderer.

Mr. Klassen may have some ideas about diet (people should eat only uncooked fruits and vegetables), language (we should adopt Latin as a universal European language), and other matters which seem odd to many people, but he most certainly is not a Jew, a homosexual, a pederast, or a murderer.

Because the Church of the Creator had very loose membership policies and attracted a large number of hobbyists, Covington was able to elicit many responses to his mailings and eventually built up a nearly complete membership list for the group. He also was able to keep the gossip in the group boiling at a destructive level. The language he used in his personal correspondence and in a newsletter he wrote (Resistance) was scatological and designed to appeal to teenaged males and to men with arrested personality development, but it also was witty and clever enough at times so that many of his correspondents were persuaded that he should be taken seriously.
Covington's technique was to mix half-truths with outrageous lies which he simply invented.

In his correspondence and newsletters he sometimes gave detailed, first-person accounts of supposed personal experiences which were wholly imaginary. As Adolf Hitler warned in Mein Kampf \ this essentially Jewish “big lie" technique works well with unsophisticated people, who cannot believe that anyone would be so brazen as to tell whoppers with absolutely no basis in fact. They naively think that the target of such slander as Covington's merely has to run for a lawyer and sue his slanderer in order to vindicate himself. Suing a person with no visible assets or means of support is usually an unrewarding endeavor, and it can place a much heavier burden of expense and wasted time on the suer than on the suee.

To date Covington has written only to non-member hobbyists and to those few Alliance members whose names and addresses he obtained from hobbyists in contact with those members, and he has focused his poison-pen gossip only on our Membership Coordinator, but if he follows his earlier pattern he will continue to try to increase the number of his correspondents and also will invent new libels.

It is unfortunate that we even have to address such unsavory matters, but as the Alliance continues to grow in numbers and effectiveness, we inevitably will be assailed with every libel, dirty .trick, and harassment technique in the enemy's arsenal. Our armor against all of this is first and foremost the quality of our membership, as exemplified in such members as Membership Coordinator Will Williams and American Dissident Voices Producer Kevin Strom. We must endeavor to maintain that quality in the future and to eliminate from our ranks the last traces of hob- byism, whether it manifests itself as uni form-and-memento fetishism or as an unhealthy fascination with the gossip in every crackpot “movement" newsletter and the doings of every one-man “party" and its self-appointed Fuhrer.

Losers, Hobbyists, and the “Movement”

Losers, Hobbyists, and the “Movement”
Editorial by Dr. Pierce from National Alliance BULLETIN, March 2000


An interesting psychological phenomenon on which I have commented on in several issues of the BULLETIN is that displayed by people who send hostile letters to the National Office saying, in effect: “You people claim to be Christians, but you ignore the teachings of the Bible, which says that all races are the same. Don’t you even know that Jesus was a Jew?” They have had the idea planted in their heads that the Alliance is some sort of Christian organization, presumably by Jewish propaganda linking us to Christian Identity and Catholic traditionalist groups, which also are on the Jews’ hit list. Reading our material or listening to one of my broadcasts should persuade them otherwise, but it doesn’t. It probably took quite a bit of effort by the Jews to pound the idea into their heads, and it’ll take dynamite to get it out.

Unfortunately, one can observe a similar phenomenon in many people nominally on our side, even in some Alliance members. I have announced over and over again our policy toward other organizations, and I nevertheless continue to receive letters to the effect: “All of us in the ‘movement’ must stick together. We should unite with all of the other patriotic organizations, and then we’ll be much stronger. Etc.” To me this view indicates either hobbyism or a serious deficiency in the writer’s powers of discrimination. If you don’t remember what hobbyism is, re-read section 3.c.iii.2 of your copy of the Membership Handbook.

The Internet has given many inadequate people the ability to pretend to be more than they are. Any troubled teenager or unemployed alcoholic can get a web site, set himself up as a phone-booth Fuhrer, and begin collecting “followers,” and many do. They are the ones to whom the Simon Wiesenthal Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center are referring when they announce that “the number of ‘hate groups’ on the Internet is now 457, up 23 per cent since 1999.” Two outstanding examples are a teenaged Jew named Andy Greenbaum, who used the name “Bo Decker” and set up an “organization” he called “Knights of Freedom”; and a professional disseminator of disinformation named Harold Covington (a.k.a. “Winston Smith”). Greenbaum self-destructed last year, when he announced a giant march in Washington and only two of his “followers” showed up for the march. Covington occasionally still makes Internet attacks on the Alliance, but he is far less prolific than he was a year or so ago.

There are dozens of others who are still active, however. One is a TV repairman in California named Tom Metzger, who publishes a tabloid addressed primarily to skinheads and prisoners called “White Aryan Resistance’ (“WAR”). Metzger promotes an ideology that is a blend of racial nationalism and class resentment, commonly called “national bolshevism.” Another, also in California, publishes a newsletter called “The Nationalist Observer.” Both are proponents of an “strategy” known as “leaderless resistance,” according to which, at the appropriate time, hundreds or even thousands of revolutionary cells, consisting of one to five patriots each, will materialize spontaneously and will overthrow the government by sabotaging or bombing government and media facilities and assassinating politicians, leading Jews, collaborators, and other enemies of our people. All of these cells will operate independently, without centralized organization or direction or infrastructure, so that it will be nearly impossible for the government to infiltrate them or spy on them, and the government never will know where or when they will strike next.

Actually, Metzger and other “leaderless resistance” advocates are not so much in favor of “leaderless resistance” as they are against any sort of organized activity. Their thesis is that any organized activity is certain to fail because it will be infiltrated by government informants and provocateurs, and that any racial patriot who joins an organization is a fool who is allowing the government to get his name on the blacklist for unspecified, but presumably severe, reprisals.

All of this theorizing takes place in the make-believe world of revolutionary hobbyism. In the real world, “leaderless resistance” is simply an excuse for losers, cowards, and shirkers to do nothing except talk to each other. Building an effective organization of any sort is difficult work, and those who don’t like work or who have tried to build an organization and failed often are resentful of any effort that shows signs of success. Their reasoning is, “I tried it and wasn’t successful; therefore, it can’t be done.” And the reason that nearly every organizational effort has failed has not been government spies or provocateurs; it has been the low quality of the human material in the organization. Certainly, the Alliance has never had any damage done to it by government agents. Every major difficulty we have had has been the consequence of bad judgment or bad behavior on the part of a member.

It’s always difficult working with people. It must be a real nightmare trying to run an organization that has no quality standards for membership and that maintains a flamboyant and sensationalist public image attractive to hooligans, drunken brawlers, criminals, sociopaths, and other losers.

The latest issue of Resistance Magazine (of which I am the publisher) had an article written by a professional soldier who pointed out the unworkability of “leaderless resistance.” Unfortunately, he mistakenly used the “Order” organized in 1984 by Robert Mathews as an example of why it doesn’t work. In fact, the “Order,” based on the fictional organization of the same name in The Turner Diaries, was a centralized organization with a strong leader. Because of the author’s slip, a few of the phone-booth Fuhrers, who already were resentful of the Alliance’s progress and were stung by the article’s undiplomatic treatment of their favorite excuse for their own failure, saw an opportunity to criticize the Alliance and seized it. They Xeroxed dozens of copies of the offending article and mailed them to everyone on their mailing lists, including the imprisoned surviving members of the “Order.” They wrote a letter to go with the Xeroxed article, and although Robert Mathews is not even named in the article, their letter said, in effect: “Look, look! Pierce is attacking Bob Mathews, our martyred hero! Isn’t that shameful?”

Seeing the article described as an attack on Robert Mathews led some of the readers to look at it that way, and they duly registered their own indignation. The phone-booth Fuhrers then posted everything to the Internet, where it was the most titillating subject for gossip among the hobbyists for several weeks. The term “movement” was frequently used by the hobbyists, as in: “Pierce has shown disrespect for a martyr of the ‘movement.’ He should be expelled from the ‘movement.’” Or: “No, no! We must have unity in the ‘movement.’”

It’s a little hard to say exactly what the term means to the Internet gossips. To most, it seems to be a clubby sort of concept which includes all of “us” and excludes everyone else. Although I have found the term useful in some contexts in the past, it probably should be abandoned because it has been so badly misused by the hobbyists. Really, what self respecting racial nationalist wants to be considered part of a “movement’ which includes all of the phone-booth Fuhrers, the Internet gossips, and an embarrassingly high quota of born losers?

It’s easy enough to understand this club mentality. As our society disintegrates under the onslaught of Jew-instigated multiculturalism, people look for something to hold onto: a sense of belonging, of community. We feel more secure when we have a sense of solidarity with others of like mind. A comforting sense of security is not the primary thing that Alliance members should be seeking, however. We want strength. We want new capabilities. We want to gain an advantage over the enemies of our people. We want anything which brings us closer to victory, whether it is comfortable or not.

The truth of the matter is, there’s not much advantage to be gained inside the “movement.” It is too heavily freighted with chronic losers, incurable hobbyists, phone-booth Fuhrers, and other defectives. Perhaps the “movement” is no worse than the general public in this regard, but we’re looking for the best and strongest people we can find, and we find them much more often outside the “movement” than inside it. It is time for all members who have been focused on the “movement” either to reorient themselves in an outward direction or to find another organization to devote themselves to. As our tempo and our work load increase, being in the Alliance will be less and less fun for those whose primary aim is to amuse themselves with “movement” gossip. And I will have less patience with hobbyists and with those who believe that the Alliance is part of the “movement.” Our aim is not to be the biggest and best organization in the “movement”; it is to leave the “movement” to its clubby introspection while we get on with the job of building a revolutionary infrastructure.

We respect our martyrs, and all of those who have shown courage or made sacrifices for our people, but we’ll build monuments to them after the revolution. Meanwhile, winning is all that we care about, not the fun of playing the game by “movement” rules.

Well said, Dr. Pierce. This fleshes out the section of the Membership Handbook where hobbyism is discussed to help members avoid the pitfalls others have done.

Written to Alliance members 27 years ago. Who knew then that Kevin and I would be carrying on Dr. Pierce's work today? As for Mr. Tubbington, it's always good to outlive one's enemies. :|
