Nazism—Still Alive In The USA

The NAZI movement is not dead in the United States. Founded in 1974, the National Socialist Movement (NSM), is now a fast growing organization. Prior to World War II this movement was known as the German-American Bund, an outgrowth of German organizations reaching back into the 1920s. Bund membership nationwide was between 50 and 60 thousand, with three times that many auxiliary members. The Bund security force (OD—Ordnungsdienst—order division) consisted of between 5 and 6 thousand men nationwide. Chicago also had a unit of American SS.

The Nazi movement went underground until the formation of the American Nazi Party (ANP) in the U.S. Organized by American naval veteran George Lincoln Rockwell in 1958, the ANP still exists, Rockwell was assassinated on August 25, 1967. The ANP states its purposes in this manner:
Although National Socialism encompasses many various issues of concern to Aryan Americans, including a healthy environment, children's welfare, and freedom of belief without fear of System persecution...the two main tenets of National Socialism embodies the Struggle for Aryan Racial survival, and Social Justice for White Working Class people throughout our land. 
As Aryan Revolutionaries, we recognize the fact that behaving in the manner of past activities, little progress has been achieved for our Cause. That is why we have taken a new direction. In the American Nazi Party, you will find no uniforms or ranks, we do not engage in publicly exposing our Comrades to undo publicity through pointless and dangerous Rallies or Marches. We instead stress Small Cell, and Individual Activism as the path for which to build our Movement, as securely and in a responsible manner as possible.

The NSM, however, continues to speak and publish openly, to rally and protest to promote its agenda. 

The NSM's core beliefs include: 
  • defending the rights of white people everywhere 
  • preservation of our European culture and heritage 
  • strengthening family values 
  • economic self-sufficiency 
  • reform of illegal immigration policies 
  • immediate withdrawal of our national military from an illegal Middle Eastern occupation 
  • promotion of white separation 
Membership is open to non-Semitic heterosexuals of European descent.

The National Socialist Movement was founded in 1974 by Robert Brannen, former member of the American Nazi Party before its decline. The NSM is currently led by Jeff Schoep

The Southern Poverty Law Center says this about the NSM:
An organization that specializes in theatrical and provocative protests, the National Socialist Movement (NSM) is one of the largest and most prominent neo-Nazi groups in the United States. The group is notable for its violent anti-Jewish rhetoric, its racist views and its policy allowing members of other racist groups to join NSM while remaining members of other groups. Until 2007, NSM members protested in full Nazi uniforms, now traded in for black “Battle Dress Uniforms”. . .
Starting in 2004, the NSM began to overshadow all other American neo-Nazi groups, including two, White Revolution and National Vanguard, that emerged from the ashes of the National Alliance. The NSM made its presence felt through frequent theatrical street actions undertaken in Nazi garb. Unlike other neo-Nazi outfits, the NSM adopted an open-arms recruiting policy that allowed members of other white supremacist groups to participate in NSM actions and join the NSM.

Schoep was only 21 years old when he took control of the group in 1994, and his relatively young age has helped him attract a younger generation of neo-Nazis. In fact, under Schoep’s leadership, the NSM set up a unit specifically focused on recruiting teens that it called its Viking Youth Corps. It also launched a Women’s Division and a Skinhead Division. It bolstered its online presence with a revamped website featuring the group’s newsletter, downloadable leaflets for printing and distribution, and field reports from NSM chapters around the country. The group created its own hate rock music label, NSM88 Records, and in April 2007 purchased the now-popular white supremacist social networking site New Saxon.

Christians who base their faith upon the Christ revealed in Holy Scriptures, rejoice in a Savior who had these words nailed upon His cross: "The King of the Jews" (Luke 23:38; John 19:19).

They also rejoice to proclaim: "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." - Jhn 3:14-17 ESV
