Racially-conscious White Americans may end up having three distinctly pro-White Presidential candidates to choose from in 2012. Billy Roper intends to run for President under the auspices of the Nationalist Party of America, provided he's not elected governor of Arkansas this year. And Dr. David Duke has discussed seeking the Republican Presidential nomination as well.
Now there's a third pro-White entrant. It turns out that at the National Socialist Movement's Los Angeles rally on April 17th, 2010, Brian Holland was in attendance (not reflected in their after-action report), and he announced his intent to form an exploratory committee to test the idea of a 2012 Presidential run. Holland's campaign continues to progress; he's now fired up an official campaign website:
Holland previously ran for President as a national socialist candidate in 2008, but his campaign never developed any significant traction, in part because he was overshadowed by a much more capable national socialist candidate, John Taylor Bowles. Unfortunately, Bowles' campaign was grounded by personal illness. Holland had a weak website which he failed to update on a regular basis. He seems to have learned from his mistakes this time around, so far, although Bowles remains quite skeptical.
Brian Holland became politically active for the first time in the late 1980s after working as a radio host. He served in 1991-1992 as the Fourth District Communications Director for the Ross Perot campaign, departing just weeks before the election due to differences with management. He then worked as a campaign director for Democratic candidate Norm Jackman in New Hampshire, believing that Jackman was really a patriot running as a Democrat. When he found out that Jackman was really an enthusiastic proponent of New Deal-type big government solutions, Holland bailed out.
Brian Holland will be making a national appearance at the NSM's "Stand In The South" rally to be held in Knoxville, TN on August 14th. Scuttlebutt holds that at least 200 patriots intend to show up for this rally, and that's just for starters.
Holland's platform is posted after the jump:
On Our Currency:
"Our national currency is, at this present time, literally not worth the paper it's printed on. The gold standard is what made our economy the strongest in the world. Printing worthless paper is what made it what it is today."
On Health Care:
"I do not believe, in my heart of hearts, that it is the government's responsibility or right to be involved with our health care. Yes, there should be improvements in the system, yes, there are inadequacies, and yes, I'd like to see them all fixed. But our government's job is to govern, to serve, to protect, not to operate businesses. Frankly, any candidate that speaks of offering you free health care is bordering on Marxism. And isn't that what we are all trying to stop at the moment?"
On States Rights:
"I would never, nor should any true American, force any items of legislation or other requirements from the federal government onto the states. This nation was founded on the concept of the states having their own, sovereign rights, and that should never change."
On Compulsory Military Service:
"It's odd to me that the same folks who criticize and condemn certain types of government want to adopt some of that government's policies here in America. This is a free nation, and freedom means not having to be forced to do anything. The federal government should be out of our lives totally. It is there to serve and protect, not to force us into some quasi national civilian police force. We have an all volunteer military and the best law enforcement officers in the world serving our communities. Taking our free citizens and forcing them into service smacks of communism and totalitarianism. Doesn't Pres. Obama endorse a national civilian defense/police force?"
"This nation was built on immigration, and by immigrants. However, when we immigrated, there were very few of us coming over. As time went on, controls were put on that immigration to prevent an overwhelming onslaught. Those controls have been eroded by folks who are looking for a permanent voter base, unfortunately, and our nation has suffered. I'd like to see a five year freeze on any immigration at all at this point. After that, we can develop a system that won't strangle our America."
"My first idea for education is simple. Get the federal government out of it, period. The federal government can't even manage itself, how is it going to educate children? Second, I'd like to see the states put teachers on merit pay. If your class can't read, then you probably shouldn't be highly paid. But, this is a state's rights issue, and state's rights is something that I will defend until my last breath."
On the Federal Budget:
"I released a plan a couple of years ago that would have instantly cut almost three hundred billion dollars from the federal budget. I sent it to several key leaders, well, alleged leaders, of our nation, and never heard a word. I'm led to believe by this that perhaps the permanent folks in Washington don't have the best budgetary interests at heart. Perhaps it's time we cut a good chunk out, namely the salaries of these people who don't represent our interests."
On the Economy:
"The only thing Bill Clinton ever said that had any truth to it was his statement of 'it's the economy stupid'. That applies today more than ever. Our economy is spiraling downward, not because of the reasons we're being told. We can't blame big companies for being successful, we can blame the government for not staying out of economics to start with. Little known fact. Some years back the IRS seized the infamous Bunny Ranch Brothel in Nevada. Under the government's management, it went belly up, no pun intended. If the government can't run a brothel and make money, come on now."
On the Right to Bear Arms:
"It says it in the Constitution, and call me crazy, but if it's there, it's good enough for me."
On the Wars in the Middle East:
"I would love to scream 'bring them home now', but that is simply not an option. I do, however, believe that we need to begin scaling back. Our brave men and women are fighting diligently, and have done what can be done. I don't want to see a total withdrawal, but I would love to see a situation where the nations in question can step up to the plate an play the games for themselves. I don't mind the US being in a coaching position, but not always being the whole team."
