A passage from White Power
by George Lincoln Rockwell

So far, our side is utterly, unbelievably stupid and blind in dealing with masses of human beings. Some who do understand the psychology of masses explain their failure to use that knowledge effectively by claiming that it is “wicked” or “immoral” to be a “demagogue”, etc. This is like watching a robber and rapist tearing up your home, ravishing your wife and kidnapping your children and refusing to try to stop him because he has a gun, and it would be “wicked” for you to use a gun, just like the criminal.

As long as bad men use psychology and demagoguery to win the masses for evil purposes, good men must use these methods to help our people unite and survive, or we die!

I am not the least bit ashamed to admit that I would draw the line at nothing to save our White race. And that includes risking my own life countless times, being beaten, jailed and lied about by almost everybody. I can see no great moral victory in seeing our people, our women, our little White children and young girls rounded up for Chinese Communist slave-labor camps or brothels, or turned over to billions of howling African savages—all because our side is too “nice” to use sound psychology to win the masses.

But we don’t have to do anything really “vile” to win. We have only to quit the sterile effort to win by trying to drive cold, hard unsympathetic facts into the minds of the masses. It won’t work. We have only to put the truth into a form suited to the people. You don’t do that with long dissertations, rationalizations, statistics, facts and unvarnished truths. You do it with parable, analogy, slogans, diagrams, posters, demonstrations, and above all combat-things that reach the hearts of men and then filter into their minds…

Our side has been too damned snotty and uppity to take stock of itself, and is still peddling the bitter and icy “pill” of economic “conservatism” to the masses of people who have rejected it for fifty years, by bigger margins each time. It took me 15 years to figure that out…

As long as the right-wing confines its fighting to being “nice”, the great masses of the public will bow down like sheep to the left-wing which is not nice—which uses smear, economic persecution, legal harassment, and finally physical terror to maintain its domination of our national life and culture by force. The force is disguised, of course, in checkbooks, judge’s robes, rigged party conventions, etc.—but it is still either the force itself, or the threat of force which has America down and afraid.

No amount of papers and pamphlets, were they all masterpieces of propaganda, and no amount of talk and meetings, can stop this growing left wing force and the power and fear it inspires—much less drive it back and finally destroy it.
