Revolution measured by taking power
Nationalists had succeeded in turning the tables on their opponents, by assessing damages against public-officials and rolling back restrictions on free-speech and public-assembly. These efforts were challenged when Shaun Walker took up criminality-instigating from the late William L. Pierce. Pierce had encouraged bomb-making and violence and had been assessed over $100,000.00 in damages for fraud. Among associates of Pierce and Walker had been Todd VanBiber, who was maimed for life when his own bomb exploded, Benjamin Smith, who killed himself after a shooting-spree, Wallace Weicherding, who drew a long prison-term, Kevin Strom, who was busted for child-pornography, and Larry Shumake, who died in a shootout with police.
Walker and two confederates, however, were convicted of "hate" and "conspiracy," when one of Walker's own co-conspirators testified against him, ending what had been an "embarrassment" and a "liability." Some suggest that in order to be "revolutionary," one must advocate or engage in violence or wind up, as Alex Linder, being hauled off in handcuffs for assaulting the police. Richard Barrett has countered that a revolution is measured by taking power, not necessarily by snubbing the law. So, despite foibles by "Costumists," Nationalists remain in charge. Despite chipping away at rights by local magistrates, Nationalists remain authors of the law of the land, on public-events and police-protection, in the United States Supreme Court.
When Barry Hackney was sued by the Texas Human Rights Commission for violating the "rights" of minorities, for instance, all charges were dismissed and Director William Hale was sacked. When Karl Wildermuth was banned by the City of Dubuque, not only was the ban lifted, but Mayor Jim Brady tossed out. When Travis Golie was charged with being a member of a "security-threat" group, all charges were dismissed and a public-apology issued by officials. When Nationalists set the precedent that police-protection be provided, at no cost, pro-majority momentum built up. But, police-excesses, also, had to be tamed, which Nationalists had the ability to do.
Their their victory-celebration in Georgia shattered all bans, restrictions and penalties upon them, followed up by their victory over Jena, Louisiana. However, when those lacking legal-resources, such as Andrew Greenbaum, attempted to make public-appearances, they were either fined, backed down or exposed as "Costumists." Officials threatened to fine Greenbaum, but backed off, although Greenbaum was separately fined $14 million for fraud, and William White was fined court-costs. David Lane, a convicted murderer, had called for Golie to be killed, for not joining in his assassination-campaign. The hope, however, is that Walker-style debacles will yield to the lessons taught by Hackney, Wildermuth and Golie.

RichardBarrett wrote 695 Days Ago (neutral)0Background
Boston Police Inspector James Claiborne accosted Nationalists preparing to rally at South Boston High School and asserted, "I am in charge here." Richard Barrett retorted, "No, I am in charge here." Claiborne backed off. Likewise, York Police Detective Phillip Roberts insisted that Nationalists preparing to rally at City Hall be searched. Richard Barrett replied, "No, they will not be," producing a court-order which barred officials from "interfering in any way." Roberts backed down. In contrast, Lansing City Attorney Brigham Smith asserted that he was in charge of a "costumist" affair at the State Capitol.
William White, who claimed to be an "unlicensed lawyer," was admonished by a judge and sacked with searches, metal-detectors and restrictions. White, then, called off a Cincinnati gig, when the ACLU declined to represent him, and, eventually, was jailed over a murder-plot. Officials have been required to pay the Nationalists for violating their rights, while Costumists have been slapped with costs for failed litigation. When Nationalists take to the streets, they are lambasted by pro-minority fund-raiser Morris Dees as "ineffective" and "unimportant," a sour-grapes response, insofar as Dees had been beaten by Nationalists in court. When Costumists rear up, Dees lavishes praise that they are "large" and "powerful."
Winning versus constricting
While the Dees-opposed Nationalists are expanding free-speech rights, by winning in court, Dees-backed Costumists are constricting them, by losing in court. Dees, also, claims that the Costumists number in the "thousands," while Nationalists are "insignificant," even though facts indicate quite the opposite. Dees, also, extolls Costumists for trying to go to court, without lawyers, and being slapped down, whereas when Nationalists litigate, with their own lawyers, and win, Dees dismisses them as "imaginary." Dees has pursued a two-pronged approach. First, savage rightists, by suing them. Second, demonize them, by "creating them in his own image." The technique was described by George Wolfskill as casting the target as "dangerous" and "ridiculous."
Robert Welch called it "sending the left over to lead the right." Costumists play into Dees' hands by making extravagant claims that court-cases will be overturned, laws overridden and officials scotched, when the opposite takes place. While White spends time claiming that judges are wrong, laws foolish and officials should be assassinated, Barrett is noted by federal-judge George O'Toole to have used the system to advantage. Can Rightists continue to expand, in the Nationalist-way? Or, will they implode, in the Costumist-manner? The answer lies with those who can provide structure, legality and effectiveness, amass resources, dedication and cadre and instruct and educate, while policing their own ranks.0 points
