    I agree any disengenuous mainstreaming is a waste of time but theres nothing wrong with variety. How was it when BNP were the only game in town. I’d be wary of any UK based outfit, or individuals attempting to unify ‘the right’ under their style of umbrella. Especially if the umbrella has a swastika on it. Yes by all means be loud and proud national socialists but nothing should be at the expense of saving souls. If its the EDL, UKIP, that break the first chink in establishment brainwashing for ppl, are the gateway drug into further dissent, then good luck to them. The Hitler brand is toxic and the Left would love to continue painting their enemies as Nazi’s. They have their infiltrators to do just that. Casting no aspersions on this gentleman but use that zeal against the real enemy

      If you don’t embrace the purity of National Socialism over half baked solutions that’s your choice, but the whole, “If we’re nazis we won’t get support because people think nazi’s are evil” argument is ridiculous because it means you are submitting to a rigged game that the left has created, and so long as you play by their rules you’ll lose because it’s made so only the most shill,sold out option out there gets a taste of power so they can give credence to the idea that being “moderate” is the way forward.

      But then of course once an organizations hard line supporters (that are it’s lifeblood) become disenfranchised and the more radical options are gone, then the system attacks the “moderates” just like if they were “radicals” and they don”t achieve jack squat.

      This is what’s happened for 70+ years, it does not work.

      National Action believe Fascism is the best/only way foreward, but the’re willing to work with any legitimate nationalist organizations that are willing to fight, the’re not the ones selling out their compatriots for brownie points for the “moderate masses” the way endless amounts of kosher nationalist groups do by thinking that if they insult “the nazis” enough that people will stop calling them “nazis” and like them.
