IN 2002 William Pierce created his first video production, entitled America is a Changing Country. The visual portion of the production was a bit amateurish and now looks quite dated — and we are seeking a video producer to re-make it to a much higher standard of impact and professionalism — but the audio content, Dr. Pierce’s actual words, are of high quality and permanent value. In this piece, William Pierce tells us how America has been changed for the worse by our enemies, why we are in a state of deep decline that may well prove fatal — and outlines for us the changes that we must make if we are to save ourselves. It is one of his most powerful speeches, and we will be presenting it to you today and over the next two weeks.
I give you Dr. William Pierce and Changing America, part 1:
* * *
America is a changing country. With more than a million non-White immigrants, both legal and illegal, pouring into the United States from Asia, Africa, Mexico, and the Caribbean region every year, the complexion of our population is rapidly becoming darker.
Our culture is changing too, reflecting both the changes in population and trends being pushed by the entertainment and advertising media. America is becoming less White, less European, less civilized and more like the Third World. Demographers predict that White people no longer will constitute a majority of the US population at the middle of this century. The country already has declined from 90% White to 70% White during the past 50 years.
America still has a relatively prosperous economy and White Americans are still relatively well-off. Our economy still is being fueled by the technological revolution wrought by the most creative elements of our people during the latter half of the 20th century — with the invention of the transistor, the development of micro-electronics and the computer, the invention of the laser, and a thousand other technological marvels. But we’ve poured much sand into the gears of our economy in recent decades with increased welfare spending and increased government programs of every sort, many of which discourage thrift and individual initiative.
As the population continues to decline in quality, and as more American industries are driven into bankruptcy by uncontrolled imports from the non-White world, economists have increasing concerns about the inevitable decline in American productivity and the American standard of living. If we measure our standard of living by things other than money — by the quality of education, by the quality and safety of our neighborhoods, or by the fitness of our people — our standard of living already may be in sharp decline.
Considering everything, many White Americans are becoming increasingly pessimistic about America’s future. Suicide rates are up. Many young people see no prospects for themselves. They have no vision of their own future or the future of their country. They are very concerned about how their children and grandchildren will fare when non-Whites constitute a majority of the voters in America.
It wasn’t always this way in America. Until about 1960, America was a white country — racially, culturally, morally. We still had a civilization and a culture which were essentially European, essentially ours. We didn’t persecute or abuse the minorities here, but we didn’t mix with them. We understood that they were different from us, and that if we mixed with them, our civilization, our culture, our lifestyle, our standard of living, and eventually our people — our genes — would change irreversibly. We didn’t want that, so we remained separate: We kept our own identity; we raised our children our way; we controlled our borders; we didn’t coddle criminals; we didn’t tolerate racially mixed couples; we had laws against miscegenation. We didn’t put up with the sort of public behavior which has become common today. And we kept our society decent and orderly and White, with much less governmental intervention in our lives than we have today — because that’s the way our people wanted it.
That’s the way it was until the Second World War. After the war things began changing. The principle agent of change in America was television — which really became an important propaganda medium, reaching into every American living room, only in the 1950s. Subtly at first and then more and more blatantly, television entertainment began ridiculing and denigrating the beliefs and attitudes and values that had characterized pre-war America.
Television wasn’t the only agent of change, of course. Hollywood films were right in step with TV. So was radio, and so were the big city newspapers such as the New York Times and the Washington Post, and virtually all of the popular magazines. The mass media had a virtually unanimous party line, and that line was that White America was “narrow-minded,” “bigoted,” “unfair,” “repressive,” and “old-fashioned.” We needed to change, we needed to become more broad-minded, more tolerant, and less repressive, they told us. We needed to become modern, to become fashionable. We needed new ideas, new attitudes, new laws, new values, and new types of people in the country. We had been unfair and repressive in the way we had dealt with the Black minority in America, we were told. The only reason most of them were poor and uneducated and prone to criminal activity was that White people had kept them down. We hadn’t given them a fair chance. We had been very narrow-minded and old-fashioned in our attitude toward homosexuals, we also were told. It really was unfair of us to look down on them and consider their way of life less normal or less desirable than ours. And White men had been bigoted and unfair and repressive in their treatment of women, the media told us, trying to keep them at home, keep them pregnant, keep them from becoming US senators or corporation executives or fighter pilots.
By the 1960s, propaganda which had been subtle and occasional had become intense non-stop brainwashing. Popular television series such as All in the Family and Mash were heaping scorn on everything traditional, everything connected with the old order in American life. With the encouragement of this media blitz against traditional America all of the subversive, anti-White, anti-patriotic, anti-masculine, anti-heterosexual elements began coming out of their closets and out from under their flat stones. Blacks began demonstrating in the streets demanding new rights. Then they began rioting and burning America’s cities. City after city went up in flames during the 1960s. Communists organized openly on America’s university campuses. Huge demonstrations were held in Washington, supporting the Communist Viet Cong at a time when young American draftees in Vietnam were being killed at the rate of a hundred a day. And the government seemed as unable to prevent the Communist demonstrations, as it was unable to win its war in Vietnam.
This governmental impotence in the face of Black arson, looting, and insurrection in the cities — in the face of Jewish agitation on America’s university campuses and of massive Communist treason in Washington — greatly undermined the confidence of the average White citizen, not just in governmental authority and rectitude, but in all of America’s established social institutions.
The reason for the government’s impotence was the support by the media — sometimes implied and sometimes open — of the Black insurrectionists, the Jewish agitators, and the Communist demonstrators. The politicians and the government were fully aware of the power of the media to sway public opinion, and to make or break any political career. They understood where the sympathies of the media bosses lay: With the Blacks and other non-Whites, with the Jews, with the Communists — and they were unwilling to incur the enmity of the media by cracking down on any of these elements.
The reason behind the peculiar sympathies of America’s mass media is to be found in a common characteristic shared by nearly all of the media bosses, as well as by a very substantial portion of the mid-level media management and even the media rank-and-file: the assistant editors and the scriptwriters and the executive directors in charge of TV news programming and the vice presidents in charge of entertainment programming and the Hollywood film directors. The media moguls then, back in the 1960s and 1970s, were the Sulzbergers, and the Meyer-Grahams, and the Newhouses and the Sarnoffs and the Paleys and the Goldensons. Today they are the Sulzbergers, and the Meyer-Grahams, and the Newhouses — and the Eisners, and the Levins, and the Redstones, and the Bronfmans, and the Zuckermans — and many more with names having a similar ring. They are and were nearly all Jews –an astounding concentration of power for an ethnic minority making up only 2.5 percent of the American population.
How they came to acquire such a stranglehold on our media and what motivates them to use their power so maliciously and destructively is another story in itself. The fact is that they did acquire control of our media and they have used that control to transform America — deliberately — from a White America where men were men and women were women and there was no mistaking which was which; from a White America where neighborhoods were clean and safe and schools were orderly, disciplined institutions where our children and young people learned about their European roots, about the civilization built by their own ancestors, and also learned the techniques and skills and the work habits and strengthened the character traits that would make them strong and productive citizens; from a White America without rap and without drugs and without whiggers and without race mixing — they transformed our America to the multicultural degenerate mess we have today.
The media bosses transformed America and are continuing to transform it. They are orchestrating a cultural war against everything White, everything traditional, everything which in the past gave us a sense of identity, a sense of racial community, a sense of belonging and responsibility, a sense of pride and of solidarity. Through their unremitting propaganda barrage they are alienating our young people, cutting them loose from their roots, conditioning young men to be unmanly and young women to be unfeminine, brainwashing everyone to abandon the values and standards of our forefathers, and to accept new and alien values, alien customs, alien attitudes and behavior.
They are brainwashing us to feel guilty for believing in and wanting the things which are right and natural for us. They are brainwashing us to tolerate everything which should be abhorrent to us. They are brainwashing us to let the filth engulf us without resistance.
That is what has transformed America and will continue to transform America as long as we permit it — as long as we stand around with our hands in our pockets and watch it happening and do nothing about it.
You know, it doesn’t have to be that way.
I’m William Pierce, Chairman of the National Alliance. Our mission is to ensure that it doesn’t continue going that way forever. We are an organization of men and women of European ancestry, White men and women, who’ve set ourselves the task of freeing our people from the alien influences which are destroying us — and then providing healthy and constructive influences in their place.
Our ultimate goal is to ensure the survival and progress of our people. But, of course, we must approach that ultimate goal a step at a time. A huge amount of preparatory work is required. Nearly all of our efforts now are directed toward simply developing the means for communicating with our people.
Many White Americans aren’t really aware of what’s happening. They see the world around them only one day at a time. They don’t see the trends; they don’t compare the situation today with what it was in the past and then look ahead to what it is likely to be in the future. They don’t ask questions about what is happening or who is responsible for it, or what motives are behind it.
Other White Americans have sensed that our society, our civilization, and our race are under attack — but they haven’t been able to figure it all out. They haven’t been able to put all of the pieces together and see the big picture.
We must be able to communicate with all of these people. We must be able to provide to those who have sensed that something is wrong the vital information they are lacking, and then explain to them how it all fits together. We must show them the big picture. And we also must be able to catch the attention of as many as we can of those who haven’t even begun asking questions yet. We must wake them up, we must alarm them, we must provoke them so that they do begin to ask questions.
Unfortunately, many of these people who are still unaware of what’s happening really don’t want to know the truth. They aren’t really bad people or stupid people, but they are thoroughly under the spell of the controlled mass media and are determined to have only the Politically Correct view of the world. They are the ones we call “lemmings.” Many of them can’t be reached as long as the mass media are in the hands of our people’s enemies, because they will listen only to the loudest voice, the voice which seems to them to have the most authority behind it. It’ll be a while before we can speak to these people with a voice louder than that of Hollywood and the controlled television networks. But that is one of our goals.
