Overthrow.com editor Bill White has revealed that the National Socialist Movement (NSM) has fronted a rival Presidential candidate to John Taylor Bowles, who represents the National Socialist Order of America. The NSM has chosen to sponsor and support Brian Holland for President.
The initial announcement of Holland's candidacy actually took place during the NSM's April 19th Rally in Washington D.C. Holland has reportedly already qualified for the presidential ballot in ten states, and is attempting to gain ballot access in an additional thirty states.
To briefly summarize his background, Holland worked as a reporter for the Suffolk News-Herald and was a radio talk show host for 17 years. He previously served as an aide to Dr. David Duke and was instrumental in Duke's only electoral victory. However, after Dr. Duke decided to re-direct his efforts from electoral politics to educational outreach, Holland looked for another venue offering more direct political activism. Consequently, he joined the NSM in 2006 and quickly rose to become its Director of Internal Affairs. Holland has an official campaign website currently under construction, accessible at the following link:
Brian Holland's campaign platform is further described on the NSM website:
This nation and this world needs leadership that is prepared to face the real issues, the real problems. The United States needs to see its interest rates dropped and held at a reasonable rate.
We need to make it possible for those that need to be provided for are indeed provided for.
We need to guarantee this nation's freedoms, regardless of your stand or your beliefs, we need to guarantee that you have the right to express it peacefully.
This nation needs to develop a real plan to end the quagmire in Iraq, and to bring our brave men and women home from battle.
Taxation needs to be overhauled, and we need to follow the examples of the former Soviet Bloc nations who have implemented a flat tax for all citizens. Those former Eastern Bloc nations are now flourishing because of their fair and equal taxation system.
Our borders need to be protected at all costs. Borders, language, and culture needs to be the backbone of our efforts.
Crime has to be met face to face, and stopped at all costs.
Illegal aliens need to be returned to their homelands. One out of every three inmates in our Federal Prison System is an illegal alien, they are not our responsibility. America is not the world's police force, and I will not allow it to be.
We are not at the disposal of every third world nation that needs us to bail them out, then when the work is done, they return to their America hating ways. No more.
Education, real education, must be returned to the people.
The protection of the American family. These are the things that haunt me, and the reasons that I have proudly accepted my Party's nomination for the Presidency of the United States of America. With the efforts of Commander Schoep and the help of our supporters worldwide, these goals can be met. It is important to remember, this is not about hate, it is not about the blame game, it is about preservation, heritage, culture, it is indeed about the future.
The campaign will begin full swing in May, with Holland visiting supporters in Arizona, Florida, and Oregon. Future campaign information will be provided on the soon to be published official website.
Analysis: On the surface, Brian Holland appears to be just as qualified for consideration as John Taylor Bowles. And in one particular area, direct political activism, Holland clearly has a superior resume, as he is more familiar with the "nuts and bolts" of running a campaign than Bowles.
However, John Taylor Bowles has not only already been campaigning, but has built up superior name recognition as a public spokesman for the national socialist worldview. He's posted his platform on VoteSmart, and given interviews to Wikimedia as well as to numerous other sources. Consequently, by running for President, Brian Holland runs the risk of sowing confusion about national socialism and dividing the pro-white vote. Holland's efforts would have been much more efficiently directed in running for Congress from his home state; this would have given him the same significant publicity similarly accorded to Indiana's Tony Zirkle without confusing the issue.
Consequently, while Holland appears to be a viable candidate, I must recommend that those sympathetic towards national socialism continue to direct their support towards John Taylor Bowles. Not only does Bowles meet the character test, but he's been campaigning longer and has greater name recognition. And to increase his appeal to the greater population, he took on the dynamic Matthew Ramsey as a running mate. Ramsey, who runs the Zogsnightmare website under the name of Jim Ramm, has demonstrated a special talent in reaching out to younger white racialists who need guidance in expressing their activism in constructive ways that won't get them thrown into jail. The Bowles-Ramsey team is still the way to go.
