This is a redo of an early article by Tim Turtle that has been republished due to its contents being relevant for the current times.
We must always study history to find what works with direct action tactics. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to blindly repeat its failures. We look for good and bad examples. Leon Czolgosz is a prime instance of a good example. While he is barely known, there is much to be learned from his life.
He was born to Polish immigrants on May 5th, 1873 in Alpena, Michigan. Like many of his peers, he was just a simple steel worker. However, he lost his job during the turbulent economy of the Gilded Age. Then, he was fucked by the lack of help for unemployed people. Rapidly, he plunged into the growing radical leftist underground. Specifically, that of anarchism.
The primary event that radicalized him was the assassination of King Umberto I by an anarchist via Propaganda of the Deed. Within the US, a climate of terror had been sown and cultivated by the anarchists. There was the attempted assassination of Henry Clay Frick, a powerful steel magnate. This reign of tension lasted for literal decades. In 1920, anarchists even bombed J.P. Morgan Investment Bank on Wall Street.
This of course isn’t in praise of anarchism. Don’t get me wrong. Many of anarchism’s targets deserved it. The anarchist movement back in the day was 100% Jewish owned and controlled, just as it is today. As always, the Jews simply co-opted natural, righteous outrage against the capitalist robber barons who deserved nothing but violent hatred. Jews, such as Emma Goldman, practically led US Anarchists at the time.
This was before Jews had total control of the US. This total control was something they wouldn’t achieve until the late 1960s. At this time, it was mostly just greedy WASPs ruling over the US. This is the nightmarish political climate within American society during the late 19th Century. This culture would lead Leon down his path.
Long story, short. Leon gets mad. He idolizes assassins. More and more, he is enraged at the filth and injustice of his society. So what does he do? Simple. He plans to kill the current president of the United States: William McKinley. McKinley was known as the puppet of the robber barons. Essentially, he was one of the first US presidents to be bought and sold to the highest bidder openly. Most everyone knew this.
So Leon traveled to Buffalo, New York with a revolver after finding out that the President was going to attending the Pan-American Exposition there. There was going to be a “Meet the President” where McKinley shakes people’s hands for photos in newspapers to show how much of a “Man of the People” he is.
Leon shows up. As McKinley reaches out to shake Leon’s hand, Leon slaps the hand away. He fires two shots from his revolver before he gets knocked down by a bystander. The President is injured but still alive. He rests in a hospital bed for eight days. Eventually, infection from his wounds ends his life. Leon, in turn, makes international news. He is tried and executed with the electric chair.
What came after was absolute terror from the ruling class. After all, if a random person can kill a US President, then any one of them could be targeted. As per the line of succession, McKinley’s Vice President, Theodore Roosevelt, became the 26th US President.
Then, came the concessions of the US Government to pacify the US Labor Movement. Specifically, the US government targeted the anarchists with concessions. From Theodore Roosevelt came the “Progressive Movement” and his “Progressive Reforms”. He introduced trust busting and regulation on monopolies, yielded concessions to striking workers, brought regulation to the food and medicine industries and more. He created the US Forest Service as well. All of these things were concessions to pacify any violent insurrection from happening.
We can easily see that Roosevelt didn’t do these reforms out of the kindness of his heart. He did so because people were pissed off. Roosevelt was afraid. Terrorism worked. The system was so rotten that even the average person couldn’t ignore it. This caused many to become radicalized. Many seeked revolution. Many such as Leon willing to kill important people.
This caused the ruling class within old US society to be afraid for their lives. Money is worthless if you are dead. As a result, the elite gave many concessions to calm down the populace just enough so they wouldn’t try to kill the elite. Self interest and fear works.
Even after the assassination of McKinley, there were more terrorist incidents. Especially from anarchists. So the US Government and Corporate America just kept giving more and more concessions as a result. Eventually, social Democrats created a welfare state. They included policies such as The New Deal and its many regulations and reforms. Of course, all of these reforms, concessions and regulations have been slowly destroyed. They’ve been watered down and dismantled since the 1980s by Neo-Liberals such as Ronald Reagan.
Now, we are right back in a new Gilded Age. Once more, we have an Oligarchy. The US Dollar is becoming more and more worthless. Jobs are either automated or shipped to the third world. Wages are stagnant as the common man and woman is neglected through spite. Mere individuals are now worth obscene amounts, hundreds of billions! Yet we can’t even muster up enough money to repair our potholed roads and collapsing bridges. Within this American nightmare, White America is being absolutely raped by opioid addiction and alcoholism. Many people just want to escape this hellscape by any means, even chemical means. The average American is becoming a slave to the rich. Property ownership is collapsing while Bill Gates has been buying up enough property to become the biggest owner of farmland within the US. Anyone who isn’t a mental retard can see our society and civilization is nothing but a rotting corpse as the rich prey like vultures on the weak and common man.
To our benefit as fascists, our leftist rivals today are concerned with useless issues like tranny hatchet mutilations. As a result, they can’t do anything effective. They can’t even acknowledge the real issues.
The leftists of today would have been rightly killed by the leftists of yesterday. They don’t hold a candle to people like Leon. This is because the leftists of today simply are not leftists. They are useful idiots. These fake leftists, especially those identified with the modern “Breadtube” left variant, haven’t read a single word of Marx, Bakunin and the like. In reality, they’re just pro-system losers and RadLibs who want to feel special and edgy. So, they parrot lines that the official state sponsored Opposition™ such as Black Lives Matter and alike blurt. The only things they actually give a fuck about are unchallenged hedonism and maintaining the current system at all costs while claiming to be rebels against it. Why do you think so many of these self-proclaimed “anti-fascists” are sex-obsessed pervert trannies, drug addicts, and Jews. But I repeat myself. There is no radicalism there. They just adopted that position because they know that without this current system people won’t tolerate their shitty behavior. These new fake leftists are inherently destructive and corrosive to society at large.
This is nothing but a gift to us. Instead of the left attracting people worth a damn with actual grievances, they instead attract hedonists, perverts and rich kid spoiled brats. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am who I am because I saw the injustices of the world around me. The corruption where I grew up in was rampant and obvious. Racial differences were obvious. The insanity of this world was a festering corpse. Some dipshit e-celeb or college class didn’t tell me why this system is rotten. I simply had to observe reality in front of me and find out solutions to those issues. Which I later found with Fascism. Now, specifically, American Futurism.
The modern left however got “radicalized” by being basic liberals who later stumbled into people like Ian “Vaush” Kochinski and adopted official Opposition™ opinions without actually thinking for themselves or seeing actual problems with the system. We get a monopoly on all the true dedicated radicals who yearn and bleed for the people. They get all the useless losers, entitled brats, and mentally ill trannies.
Leon Czolgosz showed us, despite him being the opposite of our worldview, that the only way to make major change in this world isn’t by begging the masses to follow you. It isn’t by being some e-celeb with some inflated ego who develops a psychopathic cult of worshipers.
No, the true solution is revolutionary tactics. It is simple. But it requires courage and sacrifice. That’s the only way to get noticed and have your ideas fairly heard and considered by the people. It’s the only way to get concessions by this system. One can only look into history to see that this as correct.
Hail Victory! Never forget what is possible!
