Spanish Nationalist History in the Spotlight

 Isabel Medina Peralta

SPANISH racial nationalism — past and present — has received ‘viral’ attention online in recent weeks following a controversial speech by young Falangist activist Isabel Medina Peralta.

This speech, widely shared online and reported by the mainstream media, was part of a rally of 300 Spanish nationalists in central Madrid on February 13th, commemorating the anniversary of the Battle of Krasny Bor, near Leningrad in February 1943.

During this battle the Division Azul (Blue Division), comprising Spanish volunteers dedicated to the struggle against Bolshevism fought a heroic action against Stalin’s Red Army hordes. Though they incurred heavy casualties — more than 70% of their troops killed, wounded or captured — the Blue Division and their comrades from the 4th SS Polizei Panzergrenadier Division turned back the Soviet advance.

Adolf Hitler personally designed the Blue Division Medal following the noble sacrifice of the Spanish volunteers at Krasny Bor.

About 20% of the first Blue Division volunteers were students, mainly supporters of Falangism, the radical wing of Spanish nationalism associated with José Antonio Primo de Rivera until his capture and execution by communist republicans in November 1936 during the early stages of the Civil War.

Paying tribute to the Blue Division, Isabel Medina Peralta said: “It is our supreme obligation to fight for Spain, to fight for Europe, now weak and liquidated by the enemy. The enemy is always going to be the same, although with different masks.”

Isabel Medina Peralta is an organiser for the women’s section of La Falange, a party founded in 1999 whose ideological origins are in the Falange Española de las JONS, the party that upheld José Antonio’s political legacy as the voice of radical nationalism during the Franco years.

However there were very different reactionary elements in and around Franco’s government who took an implicitly pro-British stance.

Falangists were undermined by an extraordinary conspiracy masterminded by British intelligence via an international gangster of Majorcan Jewish origin — Juan March.

In Issue 58 of H&D, published in 2014, our assistant editor Peter Rushton wrote a detailed article about this operation — codenamed Goldeneye — in which the “Cavalry of St George” — massive quantities of gold — were deployed to keep Spain out of the Second World War.

The strange story of Juan March was first brought to Peter Rushton’s attention almost thirty years ago by an elderly Anglo-Spanish couple who attanded reunion dinners of the Friends of Oswald Mosley in London. He was later able to document the story in extensive research at the UK National Archives.

In the 1990s Peter Rushton was one of several H&D readers who represented John Tyndall’s British National Party at annual November 20th rallies commemorating José Antonio, both in Central Madrid and at the Valle de los Caidos mausoleum.

As part of these events Mr Rushton visited a private Division Azul museum in central Madrid, as well as the offices of Pedro Varela’s CEDADE and the Alianza por la Unidad Nacional (AUN). Since that time, the great heritage of Spanish nationalism seemed to have been repressed by leftwing Spanish governments, including the disgraceful disinterring of Gen. Franco from his tomb at the Valle de los Caidos. However the latest Madrid demonstrations and the widely publicised speech of Isabel Medina Peralta mark the movement’s revival and the first signs of a new dawn for Spain.

An excellent article, and it is good to see the spirit of racial nationalism lives on. A small note, the medal pictured was not the medal awarded to those of the Spanish Division who fought on the Eastern Front. The medal pictured was the one awarded by the Spanish government to the international volunteers who helped turn back the communists in the Spanish Civil War. All members of the German Condor legion received that medal.

Very interesting article, although I must say that the claims about Juan March supposedly Jewish roots are not right. I have checked five Spanish websites and none of them mentions Jewish ancestors, all coincide that his parents were very poor farmers, something that Jews are not. The man was a despicable ruffian, to say the least, the kind of person who would sell his mother. Although that is a typical Jewish trait it does not guarantee his belonging to the “chosen people”. Juan March was a greedy and ruthless character, as such, he would do business with ANYONE. He founded and supported Communist and Nationalist newspapers and groups. Of course, all the websites emphasize his role as a very prominent and influential businessman under Franco, but that is to support… Read more »

The issue with Spain and race nowadays is how if you say you’re “Spanish”, you’re naturally assumed to be one of those brown goblins from south of the border. The term has been hijacked. The term “Spaniard” however hasnt and when you say you’re that, you automatically think of SPAIN. Spain also has a fair share of brown goblins which drag everything down and tend to mix in the genetic stock. Spaniards, the real European ones really needs to get a grip on things. The woman in the image has a “latino” look but she still is fairly Spanish (thus European/White) (Clarification: thin nose, lips, pale-ish skin, non pointy ears (Mestizos have sharp goblin-like features, not joking) and brown hair) The racial identity of “Spanish” needs to be reclaimed and… Read more »

True Whites are the ones with “edgy” and sharp features, faces with straight lines. Mestizos have rounded and curved facial features. You see someone with a curved nose, you know they have Indian or something else in them. Pretty sure I’ve never seen a Mestizo with “pointy” ears.
