Who Can Join the National Alliance?
by Dr. William L. Pierce
and National Alliance staff
WITH THE exceptions noted below, any White person, male or female, 18 years of age or over, of good moral character, who is in agreement with the policies, goals, and program of the National Alliance [LINK to What Is the National Alliance at natall], and who is willing to support that program may be considered for membership.
Though most members live in the United States, it is race that counts, not nationality: A citizen or resident of any nation except Israel may apply.
For the purpose of membership eligibility, a White person is any non-Jewish person who appears to be of wholly European ancestry. It is especially important to keep this definition in mind when talking with potential recruits, because of the deplorable state of public understanding of racial matters.
One occasionally will encounter persons with Italian, Irish, Spanish, or Slavic names who believe that an Aryans-only policy automatically excludes them. They have been persuaded by the controlled mass media that only Anglo-Saxons or only people of Germanic (English, German, Dutch, Flemish, or Scandinavian) ancestry are Aryans.
The use by the controlled media of the term “Hispanic” as a racial designation also confuses the issue. A Spanish-speaking person of European ancestry is presumed to be as White as an English-speaking or a Polish-speaking person of European ancestry and is eligible for membership, whereas a Spanish-speaking person of Mestizo ancestry (most Mexicans and other Central Americans) or mulatto ancestry (most Puerto Ricans) is not.
The question about membership eligibility on racial grounds that arises most often comes in the case of persons who have, or suspect they have, some North American Indian ancestry. North American Indians comprise several distinctly different ethnic groups, reflecting the arrival of their ancestors in the Americas in different migration waves, spanning at least 20,000 years, from different parts of Eurasia. While some of these ethnic strains are distinctly Mongoloid (most Central and South American Indians), a few are substantially European (of which Kennewick Man may have been an example), and it is not surprising that it was from the White-looking Indians that most admixture between European settlers and Indians took place in North America.
The Alliance does not want to attempt to sort out the various Indian ethnic strains at this time. The rule for membership eligibility is that a person who has no more than one-eighth Indian ancestry (that is, no more than one great-grandparent who was a full-blooded Indian) and who is wholly European in appearance is eligible for membership.
No homosexual, bisexual, sexually confused (“transsexual” or the like), or otherwise sexually abnormal person, no person actively addicted to alcohol or to an illegal drug, no person with a non-White spouse (whether under civil law or common law) or sexual partner, or a non-White dependent, and, except in extraordinary cases, no person currently confined in a penal institution may be a member.
Addiction to nicotine, deplorable though it may be, will not of itself make an applicant ineligible for membership.
The extraordinary cases in which an inmate of a penal institution may be eligible for membership are those cases in which the offense for which the applicant was imprisoned casts no shadow on his moral character (e.g., an economic offense against the government, such as tax evasion; or a purely political offense, such as an offense in the new category of so-called “hate crimes”), or when the real reason for the applicant’s prosecution was political regardless of the offense. Eligibility for admission of a prisoner to membership is decided conservatively and only in cases in which the facts are quite clear. The National Alliance does not advocate any illegal activity and expects its members to conduct themselves accordingly.
