Yet NSM Commander Jeff Schoep is flexible and open-minded enough to recognize when the ANP comes up with an innovative idea. On two separate occasions, the ANP's SA Political Advisor, John Taylor Bowles, has lectured high school students on national socialism. Both times the lectures were reportedly well-received.
Now Jeff Schoep has replicated this example. In this official release, Schoep reports having given a presentation on national socialism at an unnamed school in Ohio. It is probably prudent not to identify the school, for it would most likely be targeted and harassed by anti-racists if its identity were known. Schoep writes:
Comrades, Today, (1-12-11) I gave a lecture to a school in Ohio addressing a Political History class about the history of the National Socialist Movement, our goals and mission. After the lecture we held a question and answer session with the students. The lecture went well, everyone was respectful, and many excellent questions were asked and answered. The National Socialist Movement continues its forward momentum from the streets to the classrooms, and everywhere in between! The National Socialist doctrine stands above all other Political Idealogy on a platform of truth, bringing a message of hope. Our America First Policy shines like a beacon of light, showing the way to a Nation that is reaching out to be saved from Economic doom and rampant illegal immigration. Hail Victory!
While the National Socialist Movement remains best known for its signature agitprop street rallies which not only attract instantaneous media publicity but draw out anti-racists and expose them as proto-terrorists, the NSM continues to explore and adopt a wider variety of tactics to promote race consciousness and national socialist literacy among White Americans. They're building an environmental legacy by participating in Adopt-A-Highway beautification programs. They've run people like Jeff Hall for local political office, where they can actually get their names on ballots. Harry Hughes also applied for a suddenly-vacated school board seat in Arizona. And they're preparing to run Brian Holland for President a second time in 2012, even if it ends up being another write-in candidacy.
Of course, the American Nazi Party has not remained idle. In their January 4th report, Chairman Rocky Suhayda sets forth a series of internal reforms which are designed to weld the organization together more tightly. In particular, those who aspire to leadership positions will have to explicitly earn them -- through documented activism. Want to be one of their Cell Leaders? Prove it by successfully recruiting more members in your area. No freebies. In addition, all ANP members will be expected to submit regular activity reports. Not only will this document specific activism, but this will also help build the written communications skills of its members. And finally, the ANP envisions holding at least five major gatherings throughout the country during 2011.
The NSM takes a lot of heat from both within and without the White Nationalist community, but they provide a disciplined form of activism which best appeals to the younger comrades who simply would not thrive in a suit-and-tie environment like the upcoming American Renaissance Conference. Parallel forms of activism are needed to promote better racial awareness and subsequent mobilization.
