If you’ve kept up with the Radical Agenda or pro-White movements for any period of time, you’ve probably heard of Matt Heimbach before. He had been a prominent figure in our movement for quite some time in various roles, perhaps most notably in his leadership of the Traditionalist Worker Party.
I didn’t always care much for Matt. As I came into this movement, I was more an edgy libertarian than a Nazi, and thought of socialism as a dirty word with no place on the Right. We had Matt on the show for EP298 to debate the virtues of free markets vs. central economic planning, and whatever disagreements we might have had over the subject, the guy had earned my respect.
Fast forward down the timeline a bit, after I ended up in an enemy cage, and was subsequently silenced and made to suffer financially at the hands of Jewish market dominance. I finally came to see State intervention in the market as a vital necessity. I read Mein Kampf, Hitler’s Revolution, and came to understand the difference between National and “Democratic” socialism.
I further came to appreciate that while Matt was an intelligent guy, and talented orator, he didn’t shy from getting his hands dirty either. Matt and the men who saw fit to follow him showed unrivaled courage in the face of enemy aggression. It is thus appropriate that we speak to him today as our countrymen celebrate veterans’ day, and when people in our movement threw him and his guys under the bus following the Battle of Michigan, I became absolutely furious.
Then the box broke, and Matt largely faded from public view in disgrace.
After a brief stint in jail. Matt has returned in association with the National Socialist Movement. I’m really glad to have him back for a lot of reasons. In addition to what I outlined above, Matt was actually one of the first people to introduce me to identitarianism.
Heimbach came onto my radar in 2014. At the time, I was still writing at A Voice for Men, and their conference had been getting terrorist threats from feminists and other communist agitators. The “thick vs. thin” libertarian divide was at its height, and I was only beginning to realize the power of identity politics, when I just happened to see this piece from Vice in my Facebook feed about a “White Student Union” formed by Heimbach and friends at Towson University, in Maryland.
As I read and watched video from the story, it was pointed out that every imaginable identity group had already been established on the campus, save for that of whites. When Matt decided to start his White Student Union, you might be less than surprised to find out that he met a great deal of resistance. Whites organizing for their interests was deemed uniquely wicked by students and faculty alike, because racism.
Ultimately, the university never did recognize the WSU. During the course of the debate however, Matt did manage to get Jared Taylor of American Renaissance to speak at the campus. Extra security was needed to deal with the threats of violence by those who oppose white interests, but luckily Antifa hadn’t resorted to arson yet and Mr. Taylor was able to give his talk.
This was my first exposure to Taylor, and a well articulated white nationalist message centered around white interests as opposed to complaining about other racial groups. Taylor rightly pointed out that diversity is antithetical to the way people actually organize their lives. Whites tend to live around other whites, blacks tend to live around other blacks, and you can extrapolate this out to other racial, ethnic, and identity groups. For an hour and a half, Taylor spoke and took questions from the audience. No matter how hard his detractors baited him, he never got angry or attacked any other group. He simply pointed out the facts and discussed how those facts placed pressure upon whites to organize for their interests.
Predictably, the entire thing was dismissed as racism and hatred anyway. It took awhile for me to get to a point where I felt compelled to more actively speak out for white interests, but I clearly remember this as the time I realized it was necessary, and not a day has gone by since where I haven’t gotten a reminder as to the importance of this.
