The U.S. Nationalist Party

The U.S. Nationalist Party was a tiny, short-lived group formed in the early 1960s by Douglas Kaye and John Sullivan with help from Fred Weiss. Weiss had been the brains (along with H. Keith Thompson) of the National Renaissance Party with James H. Madole as the nominal front man. Weiss didn’t have all that much faith in Madole to carry forth the message of Francis Parker Yockey so he hedged his bets.

During the short time it existed, I managed to get only couple bulletins from the U.S. Nationalist Party. If I recall, much of their invective was aimed at George Lincoln Rockwell and his so-called ‘American Nazi Party’ whom they termed ‘nutzis.’ Weiss’s ally Thompson was a real SS man and also both contemptuous and suspicious of Rockwell. Rockwell, at best, was a just a conservative with a taste for Jew-baiting and wearing the swastika. Like Thompson, I think Rockwell was worse. Rockwell supported U.S. foreign policy which included the continued occupation of Europe. That,in turn, would lead to the de-industrialization of Europe and the mass Third World immigration.

Rockwell hated Yockey so a U.S. Nationalist Party, which supported Yockey was needed. But the times were too early.

To keep pure Yockeyism alive, Kaye and Sullivan started a new publication called TRUD!: FROM THE WHITE UNDERGROUND. Many regarded “TRUD!” as a play on words of “Trud”, the Soviet trade union paper.

Sullivan wrote me and said TRUD! stood for Terror Removes Unwanted Democracy.

Because TRUD! was very Yockeyist in its pro-Russian stand–something Yockey’s ‘official’ American promoter, W.A. Carto, avoided like the plague–many, at first glance, thought it was a run-of-the-mill radical or New Leftist sheet, common at the time.

But in a 1969 letter to subscribers, Kaye and Sullivan wrote this:

“TRUD! Listen to that word! Listen to the sound of TRUD! It’s the sound of a police club crushing the skull of a ghetto rioter or student anarchist. TRUD! the sound of a boot kicking the backside of a pinko college professor. TRUD! the sound of a peacenik being strangled.”

TRUD!: FROM THE WHITE UNDERGROUND didn’t last too long either. Like the U.S. Nationalist Party, it was not understood in the milieu of a brain dead American Right.

But with the situation of the USA and its alien regime so dire right now, maybe this time the message will find an audience. I’ll be re-printing some stuff from them in the near term.

    I’ve always maintained that Rockwell was the Abbie Hoffman of the Nationalist Right: a brilliant provocateur who played the media like a Stradivarius, but ultimately a rather pathetic, clownish figure who never took his fight beyond baiting his opponents and outraging Middle-American sensibilities.
