The Turner Diaries

or

“The Joy of Genocide”

Cover of Book
Introduction:

The Turner Diaries, was catapulted into belated fame by the Oklahoma City tragedy of the mass murder of 165 people by Timothy McVeigh. Most of the focus of attention on The Turner Diaries, has been on its paranoid view of the American Federal government, and its vision of a terrorist war against the Federal government by bombing Federal office buildings using such things as trucks filled with fertiliser as bombs. What usually escapes attention is the book’s genocidal racism.

The book is in fact among other things a primer in mass-murder. The book is not about eliminating, overthrowing a wicked government but about the extermination of “enemies”, the reason for the revolt is in fact a mere precedent, excuse, for the real aim; mass-murder on a planetary scale.

This essay is devoted to looking at the genocidal aspects of The Turner Diaries, which are not incidental to the plot but its central focus.

Summary:

The book takes the form of a published diary of a Mr. Turner who was a member of an organisation dedicated to overthrowing the wicked Jewish controlled government (the “System”) of the USA and saving “Whites”, (my quotation marks), from oppression and restoring their rightful domination of the planet and exterminating “sub-humans”.

The diary is being published about a century after Turner’s death, when all that he desired has been accomplished, as a monument to his “courage”.

This type of literary device has been used many times; two examples are Jack London’s The Iron Heel, and Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.

In The Turner Diaries, the organisation revolts after the government confiscates people’s guns. Mr. Turner takes part in various attacks, is captured by the enemy, is involved in taking over Los Angeles and helps atone for his capture by a suicide bombing of the Pentagon. The afterward then describes the “White” conquest of the planet.

This highly repellent stew describes, although the author would deny it, the conquest of the earth by self-made “sub-humans”.

Heroes:

Mr. Turner is not the “Hero” of the Novel the real “Hero” is the “Organisation” and it’s spiritual founder Adolf Hitler, who Mr. Turner greatly admires and whose Nazi party is the basis for the “Organisation” and whose ideology is Nazi also. The author of The Turner Diaries, was William Luther Pierce, (died 2002) who published it under the name Andrew Macdonald. Mr. Pierce was a died in the wool extreme racist who worked with the American Nazi party, and was the leader of the white seperatist National Alliance organization. He later founded the Cosmotheism a racist religion.1

Precedent:

The excuse for the “Revolution” is the confiscation of Guns by the Federal government from “White” citizens. Of course this is an unacceptable provocation. Blacks and others take advantage of this to rape, pillage and ravage. The precedent is called the “Cohen Act”. To quote our author:
As more and more details of the raids leaked out, public restlessness grew. One of the details which bothered people was that the raiders had, for the most part, exempted Black neighborhoods from the searches. The explanation given at first for this was that since "racists" were the ones primarily suspected of harboring firearms, there was relatively little need to search Black homes.

The peculiar logic of this explanation broke down when it turned out that a number of persons who could hardly be considered either "racists" or "fascists" had been caught up in the raids. Among them were two prominent liberal newspaper columnists who had earlier been in the forefront of the antigun crusade, four Negro Congressmen (they lived in White neighborhoods), and an embarrassingly large number of government officials.2
What is interesting is that our “hero” Mr. Turner whines repeatedly about this horrible violation of his and other “White” peoples rights. In light of what his group is planning and in fact implements this is a mere precedent, and a pretty example of bold faced hypocrisy amounting to lying. The rest of the American Constitution is scrapped by Turner and his fellow followers. Free expression, voting, due process, democracy etc., are unimportant and irrelevant. And of course denial of guns to “White” people is the only thing violating the American Constitution worth a damn. Although The Turner Diaries does not say so explicitly it is obvious that the author believes and so does the organization that only “White” people should have guns. Obviously this is what is called a “mere precedent”, an “excuse” to carry out the real aim of the organization - mass murder.

As an example of breath taking hypocrisy what about the following:
For a second thing, I am sure now that we were overoptimistic in our judgment of the mood of the public. What we mistook as general resentment against the System's abrogation of civil rights during the Gun Raids was more a passing wave of uneasiness resulting from all the commotion involved in the mass arrests.3
Considering that the “Organization” was plotting genocidal mass murder this self righteous concern about civil rights is breathtaking.

Now it is pretty obvious to me that some, Blacks, Jews and Hispanics etc., (i.e., the author’s “non-whites”), would not want their guns confiscated by the government. But since neither the author nor the organization have the slightest interest in using this as anything but an excuse that is irrelevant.

Ideology:

The diaries fictional author refers to the anniversary of the birth of that great “hero”, (the revolution starts 110 years after the birth of Adolf Hitler), and the ideology of the organisation is pure Nazism An infatuation with “race” and “blood” purity. Like in Adolf Hitler’s paranoid fantasies, in these diaries Jews control everything and of course are evil “sub-humans” meriting only total annihilation. There are for example such coded references to Jews as:
Indeed, we are already slaves. We have allowed a diabolically clever, alien minority to put chains on our souls and our minds. These spiritual chains are a truer mark of slavery than the iron chains which are yet to come.

Why didn't we rebel 35 years ago, when they took our schools away from us and began converting them into racially mixed jungles? Why didn't we throw them all out of the country 50 years ago, instead of letting them use us as cannon fodder in their war to subjugate Europe?4
Of course a long list of other “races”, Africans, Indians, Chinese, merit complete extermination right down to the last man, women and child and the “organization” carries out its extermination with panting, orgasmic joy.

Our Author says about the goal of the “Organization”:
But one thing which is quite clear is that much more than our freedom is at stake. If the Organization fails in its task now, everything will be lost-our history, our heritage, all the blood and sacrifices and upward striving of countless thousands of years.

The Enemy we are fighting fully intends to destroy the racial basis of our existence. No excuse for our failure will have any meaning, for there will be only a swarming horde of indifferent, mulatto zombies to hear it.

There will be no White men to remember us-either to blame us for our weakness or to forgive us for our folly.

If we fail, God's great Experiment will come to an end, and this planet will once again, as it did millions of years ago, move through the ether devoid of higher man.5
It is fascinating to record that the above, especially the last line, is a paraphrase of lines from Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.6

The author’s sexual and anti-semitic and racial obsessions are revealed clearly in the following passages:
In other words, rape has been reduced to the status of a punch in the nose. In cases where no physical injury can be proved, it is now virtually impossible to obtain a prosecution or even an arrest.

The result of this judicial mischief has been that the incidence of rape has zoomed to the point that the legal statisticians have recently estimated that one out of every two American women can expect to be raped at least once in her lifetime. In many of our big cities, of course, the statistics are much worse.

The women's-lib groups have greeted this development with dismay. It isn't exactly what they had in mind when they began agitating for "equality" two decades ago. At least, there's dismay among the rank and file of such groups; I have a suspicion that their leaders, most of whom are Jewesses, had this outcome in mind from the beginning.

Black civil rights spokesmen, on the other hand, have had only praise for the Supreme Court's decision. Rape laws, they said, are "racist," because a disproportionately large number of Blacks have been charged under them.

Nowadays gangs of Black thugs hang around parking lots and school playgrounds and roam the corridors of office buildings and apartment complexes, looking for any attractive, unescorted White girl and knowing that punishment, either from the disarmed citizenry or the handcuffed police, is extremely unlikely. Gang rapes in school classrooms have become an especially popular new sport.7
Another example of the anti-semitic hysteria of our author is the following:
The subsequent interrogation sessions were worse-much worse. Because a public "show trial" was planned for me, presumably in the Adolf Eichmann manner, Rubin avoided the eye-gouging and finger-cutting, which would have disfigured me, but the things he did were fully as painful. (Note to the reader: Adolf Eichmann was a middle-level German official during World War II. Fifteen years after the war, in 39 BNE, he was kidnapped in South America by Jews, flown to Israel, and made the central figure in an elaborately staged, two-year propaganda campaign to evoke sympathy from the non-Jewish world for Israel, the only haven for "persecuted" Jews. After fiendish torture, Eichmann was displayed in a soundproof glass cage during a four-month show trial in which he was condemned to death for "crimes against the Jewish people.")8
The above is a tissue of lies. Eichmann for one thing was not tortured at all although this is a familiar lie from Neo-Nazi circles.9 But this passage reveals with great clarity the racist, anti-semitic hysteria of our author.

The take over of Los Angles:

The organisation takes over Los Angles by means of a terrorist campaign, as their first base. During this takeover they set up Ghettos for Blacks and when Blacks and others protest this they respond with terror. The organisation rounds up the Jewish population of Los Angeles, takes it local canyons and ravines and murders them. Since the Jewish population of los Angles is c. 200,000 we are talking about mass murder on an impressive scale. The murders being described are similar, probably deliberately, to the slaughter at Babi-Yar in Russia, 1941, during World War II. There 30,000 people were murdered in a few days in a ravine near Kiev. In this case our fictional diary writer celebrates this massacre, with a few words about how they had to do it. No doubt our “hero” finds mass murder a turn-on.

How about the following from our hero:
Coming through the mountains just north of Los Angeles we encountered a long column of marchers, heavily guarded by GI's and Organization personnel. As we drove slowly past, I observed the prisoners closely, trying to decide what they were. They didn't seem to be Blacks or Chicanos, and yet only a few of them appeared to be Whites. Many of the faces were distinctly Jewish, while others had features or hair suggesting a Negroid taint. The head of the column turned off the main roadway into a little-used ranger trail which disappeared into a boulder-strewn canyon, while the tail stretched for several miles back toward the city. There may have been as many as 50,000 marchers, representing all ages and both sexes, just in the portion of the column we passed.

...
Back at HQ I inquired about the strange column. No one was sure, although the consensus was that they were the Jews and the mixed breeds of too light a hue to be included with the evacuees who were sent east. I remember now something which puzzled me a few days ago: the separation of the very light Blacks-the almost Whites, the octoroons and quadroons, the unclassifiable mongrels from various Asian and southern climes-from the others during the concentration and evacuation operations.
And I think I now understand. The clearly distinguishable nonwhite are the ones we want to increase the racial pressure on the Whites outside California. The presence of more almost-White mongrels would merely confuse the issue-and there is always the danger that they will later "pass" as White. Better to deal with them now, as soon as we get our hands on them. I have a suspicion their trip into that canyon north of here will be a one-way affair!10
Another passage:

If they were non-Whites-and that included all the Jews and everyone who even looked like he had a bit of non-White ancestry - they were shoved into hastily formed columns and started on their no-return march to the canyon in the foothills north of the city. The slightest resistance, any attempt at back talk, or any lagging brought a swift bullet.

The Whites, on the other hand, were, in nearly all cases, hanged on the spot. One of the two types of pre-printed placards was hung on the victim's chest, his hands were quickly taped behind his back, a rope was thrown over a convenient limb or signpost with the other end knotted around his neck, and he was then hauled clear of the ground with no further ado and left dancing on air while the soldiers went to the next name on their list.

The hangings and the formation of the death columns went on for about 10 hours without interruption. When the troops finished their grim work early this afternoon and began returning to their barracks, the Los Angeles area was utterly and completely pacified. The residents of neighborhoods in which we could venture safely only in a tank yesterday were trembling behind closed doors today, afraid even to be seen peering through the crack in drawn drapes. Throughout the morning there was no organized or large-scale opposition to our troops, and by this afternoon even the desire for opposition had evaporated.11
Blacks meanwhile are imprisoned in a bestial ghetto. It is of interest to note that Mr. Turner considers that their protest against this vicious denial of their rights to be an affront and unpardonable. I suppose that imprisoning guiltless people for the purpose starving them to death can be seen by some has nothing much to get upset about. Turner whines like his colleagues in the organisation about the protest. The gall of oppressors, tyrants and murderers who whine about the audacity of their victims daring to resist, can take your breath away.
Most Blacks moved along the streets leading into the designated areas a block or two ahead of the slowly advancing infantry, who made quick searches of each building as they came abreast of it. Blacks who had not already vacated the premises were roughly driven into the streets at bayonet point. If they put up any resistance at all they were shot on the spot, and the sound of this occasional gunfire helped to keep the other Blacks moving along.12
And.

Actually we have done pretty well at concentrating the Blacks. About 80 per cent of them are sealed in four small enclaves now, and I understand that the first mass convoy of them is heading east tonight.13
During all of this the Organization murders, imprisons etc., any “White” person who may oppose their murderous deeds and acts. They enact strict censorship. So much for freedom of speech. Due process disappears entirely has death squads do their ghastly business. What’s describes bears a more than coincidental similarity to the Nazi terror after Hitler’s coming to power in 1933 , and the Rohm purge of 1934, but on a vastly larger scale.

As part of the terror “Whites” who married Jews, Blacks etc., are murdered by being hung from lampposts etc. One can guess what happens to their children. No doubt these individuals in many if not all cases would have protested or acted to save their spouses. But in the eyes of our “hero” Mr. Turner they are “race traitors” deserving death. The organization obviously thinks that the Non-Jewish spouses and relatives of German Jews during the Nazi era were treated far too leniently by the Nazi government, this time it will be done “right”.

For example:
In the lighted areas one sees them everywhere. Even the street signs at intersections have been pressed into service, and at practically every street corner I passed this evening on my way to HQ there was a dangling corpse, four at every intersection. Hanging from a single overpass only about a mile from here is a group of about 30, each with an identical placard around its neck bearing the printed legend, "I betrayed my race." Two or three of that group had been decked out in academic robes before they were strung up, and the whole batch are apparently faculty members from the nearby UCLA campus.

The first thing I saw in the moonlight was the placard with its legend in large, block letters: "I defiled my race." Above the placard leered the horribly bloated, purplish face of a young woman, her eyes wide open and bulging, her mouth agape. Finally I could make out the thin, vertical line of rope disappearing into the branches above. Apparently the rope had slipped a bit or the branch to which it was tied had sagged, until the woman's feet were resting on the pavement, giving the uncanny appearance of a corpse standing upright of its own volition.

I shuddered and quickly went on my way. There are many thousands of hanging female corpses like that in this city tonight, all wearing identical placards around their necks. They are the White women who were married to or living with Blacks, with Jews, or with other non-White males.

There are also a number of men wearing the l-defiled-my-race placard, but the women easily outnumber them seven or eight to one. On the other hand, about ninety per cent of the corpses with the I-betrayed-my-race placards are men, and overall the sexes seem to be roughly balanced.14
Those who hide Jews to keep them from being murdered will also be shown no mercy. Those hiding Jews are killed, no “mercy” in sending them to prison or concentration camps, (although in Poland and in Eastern Europe people who hid Jews were shot).

And we were the ones who pasted up the proclamations from Revolutionary Command in each block, warning all citizens that henceforth any act of looting, rioting, or sabotage, or any failure to obey the command of a soldier, will result in the summary execution of the offender. The proclamations also carry a similar warning for anyone who knowingly harbors a Jew or other non- White or who willfully provides false information to or withholds information from our police units.15
Meanwhile in the Black ghettos, people are deliberately deprived of food. And our “hero” is horrified but not really surprised to find out that Blacks are preying on each other, even engaging in cannibalism. Our Mr. Turner just finds it so horrible and thinks it is scandalous that blacks treat each other so bad. Of course to Mr. Turner Blacks are only demonstrating their “sub-humanity” by acting in this way. The climax so to speak is when blacks in their hunger start to eat each other and then start to raid “White” areas to eat “Whites”. This of course is further “proof” to Mr. Turner of the “sub-human” nature of Blacks.

We also found gruesome evidence of one way in which the Blacks have solved their food shortage: cannibalism. They began by setting up barricades in one main street to stop cars driven by Whites, apparently as early as Tuesday of last week. The unfortunate Whites were dragged from their cars, taken into a nearby Black restaurant, butchered, cooked, and eaten.16
The organization doesn’t care about Blacks eating each other, but when they prey on “white” people it has to be stopped. So of course the organization stops it with considerable violence. Then shortly afterwards the Blacks are sent to areas under the control of the government. Our “hero”, Mr. Turner again whines about how badly Blacks treat each other. An example of our “hero’s” outrage:

I have been surprised to see how callous our volunteer Blacks are toward their own people. Some of the older Blacks, who haven't been able to fend for themselves, are obviously near the point of death from starvation and dehydration, yet our volunteers handle them so roughly and pack them so tightly into the cars that it makes me flinch to watch them. When one overloaded Cadillac started onto the eastbound freeway with a lurch this morning, an ancient Negro lost his grip and fell off the roof, landing headfirst on the pavement and crushing his skull like an egg. The Blacks who had just loaded the car roared with laughter; it was apparently the funniest thing they've seen in a long time.17
Unmitigated gall seems to be a trait of most if not all of the world’s great terrorist movements. The above sections demonstrates it in spades. Aside from the sickening racism of the passages describing the ghetto. Our “hero’s” whining is stomach turning. Mr. Turner and the organization he is a member off are planning to kill every Black person on earth. They have slaughtered hundreds of thousands in ravines near the city and they have instituted policies to create mass starvation. Yet Mr. Turner complains about how they treat each other!!

The model for all of this seems to be the Jewish ghettos created by the Nazi’s during World War II which were by deliberate design places of despair, starvation and disease. There too some Nazi’s used the appearance and behavior of desperate, starving people to justify considering and treating the involuntary inmates has “sub-humans”.

The rest of the USA:

The war described in the book is one long campaign of terror and murder. The tactics of the organization are ruthless. If you aren’t for us, you are against us. A strategy of encirclement, and divide and rule follows carried out with through ruthlessness, with the widespread use nuclear weapons as the organization advances “non-whites” are murdered or flee. But since the organization’s plans are for a “White world” there is safety nowhere. Those who oppose the organization from within the “White Community” are ruthlessly killed. The organization deliberately creates as much chaos as possible. When it is over about ¾ of the American population is dead.

Tens of millions perished during the first half of 1994, and the total White population of the country reached a low point of approximately 50 million by August of that year.18
In all of this our “hero” in a plane suicide bombs the pentagon, sounds like 9/11, but the editors fill in the rest of the whole sick, twisted story.

To quote the epilogue concerning events in the USA:
Then, of course, came the mopping-up period, when the last of the non-White bands were hunted down and exterminated, followed by the final purge of undesirable racial elements among the remaining White population.19
The World:

The world wide Anti-Semitic obsession of the author and his genocidal aims are clear in the following passage:

But we won't forget! That alone is enough to insure that history will not repeat itself. No matter how long it takes us and no matter to what lengths we must go, we'll demand a final settlement of the account between our two races. If the Organization survives this contest, no Jew will-anywhere. We'll go to the uttermost ends of the earth to hunt down the last of Satan's spawn.20
That “Satan’s spawn” consists in part of pregnant women, babies and young children is of course irrelevant to our “hero”.

The organization nukes several cities, and countries including Toronto, and Israel. Apparently they opposed the genocidal insanity of the organization. Eventually through the chaos that the organization generates in Europe and elsewhere it gains control of the world. In an earlier passage our “hero” expressed sympathy for the Palestinians, another exercise in hypocrisy considering what happens next.

In Europe the following happens:

The blood flowed ankle-deep in the streets of many of Europe's great cities momentarily, as the race traitors, the offspring of generations of dysgenic breeding, and hordes of Gastarbeiter [Foreign workers] met a common fate. Then the great dawn of the New Era broke over the Western world.21
The organization launches radio active weapons against India and China and devastates the most of Asia annihilating billions of people, and making the area uninhabitable for centuries. Then the “mutant” survivors are hunted down and killed.

Therefore, the Organization resorted to a combination of chemical, biological, and radiological means, on an enormous scale, to deal with the problem. Over a period of four years some 16 million square miles of the earth's surface, from the Ural Mountains to the Pacific and from the Arctic Ocean to the Indian Ocean, were effectively sterilized. Thus was the Great Eastern Waste created.

Only in the last decade have certain areas of the Waste been declared safe for colonization. Even so, they are "safe" only in the sense that the poisons sowed there a century ago have abated to the point that they are no longer a hazard to life. As everyone is aware, the bands of mutants which roam the Waste remain a real threat, and it may be another century before the last of them has been eliminated and White colonization has once again established a human presence throughout this vast area.

But it was in the year 1999, according to the chronology of the Old Era-just 110 years after the birth of the Great One [Adolf Hitler]- that the dream of a White world finally became a certainty. And it was the sacrifice of the lives of uncounted thousands of brave men and women of the Organization during the preceding years which had kept that dream alive until its realization could no longer be denied.22
During all this, from the fictional “editorial”, comments in the diaries we learn that the Puerto-Ricans were wiped out, that Uganda no longer exists and neither do Black Africans in Africa.
(Note to the reader: Uganda was a political subdivision of the continent of Africa during the Old Era, when that continent was inhabited by the Negro race. Puerto Rico was the Old Era name of the island of New Carolina. It is occupied now by the descendants of White refugees from radioactive areas of the southeastern United States, but before the race purges in the final days of the Great Revolution it was inhabited by a mongrel race of especially unsavory character.)23
In fact it is now a “White World”. The fate of American Indians, Hispanics, Latin Americans of all stripes, the Arab and Semitic peoples of the Middle East, are not mentioned but easily imagined. The fate of all those who hide individuals being hunted down, those who denounce the moral obscenity of these acts is also easy to imagine in this nightmare world.

What’s left out?

Reading The Turner Diaries, I am reminded of the passage in Orwell’s 1984, when O’Brien tells Winston that the entire future of the human race will be a boot stamping on a human face forever. In The Turner Diaries, what is next, finding new people to murder? An endless stream of justification for murder? A world society wallowing in its “Whiteness”? It sounds simply evil.

What is also left out is the child, who is killed, by the gun, the knife etc., simply for existing. In World War II those in involved in the genocide killed children sometimes by crushing their heads with their boots or hitting them against walls. In the los Angles section of the book is described the butchery of hundreds of thousands in canyons and ravines. Where is the child holding a parent’s hand, clutching a favorite toy before being murdered? The children starving to death in ghettos, dying of radiation sickness? Those being killed in un-mentioned extermination plans? The book does not mention gas chambers but that is an all too reasonable guess about how many of the “sub-humans” are killed.

Pregnant women, the old, the ill, the slow, die because they commit the crime of existing. All these humans are not worthy of any consideration. They have no rights at all, not even the right to exist. Their very existence is a crime punishable by death, by virtue of being born in the “wrong” groups. In the world of The Turner Diaries, we see cold ruthless men gloating over the murder of billions of innocents.

In 2002 the author ,William Luther Pierce, of The Turner Diaries, died so that the Earth was no longer defiled and polluted by his vile presence. I have little doubt that he continued to, until his death, to be turned on by sick fantasies of murdering pregnant women, shooting children in the head and committing mass murder. I am also in little doubt that he would have with gusto and pleasure committed such acts and I am grateful he never seems to have had the opportunity.

In the title of this review I rather flippantly referred to The Turner Diaries, having as an alternative title “The Joy of Genocide”. The point of the novel is not about the evils of an out of control federal government and how to resist it. The novel is about how a racist group could seize power in order to carry out its goal of world wide mass murder. Certainly neither resisting tyranny nor establishing freedom is the goal. The goal is to set up a tyranny in order to accomplish the main goal of the annihilation of most of the human race. It is that goal which is paramount and all else is subordinate to that goal.

It is a goal which the fictional “author”, Turner, and his fictional “editors”, relish as the expression goes “to the bone”. It is because of this that I described the members of the organization described in the novel has “self made sub-humans”. No one is born “sub-human”, but each of us can become one through the things we do. Certainly the planning and carrying out of mass genocide on a planetary scale is “sub-human” on a colossal scale. The author and the “hero” he created are indeed examples are indeed “self made sub-humans”.
