Together, We Can Take Back America!

(Following is the full text of remarks prepared for my address to the Duke Unity Conference held in New Orleans, May 30, 2004.) (Go here http://www.davidduke.com/conference/sunday.html for the abbreviated and edited audio version available on line at Duke's web site.)
Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
Some say that patriotism is old fashioned. Some think that love of country is out of date. Some consider the slightest show of sentiment toward one's homeland to be naive.
But, God help us -- and God help our country -- if the cynics, the one worlders, the Zionist Neoconservative intellectual dilettantes ever persuade us that these things have passed us by.
Because, ladies and gentlemen, patriotism, loyalty, sentiment...THESE THINGS ARE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
In my lifetime, I have seen America grow and change. I have seen her stand tall and I have seen her brought low.
I have seen the best that America can be and now, just recently, I have seen the worst that America can be.
But always, she has been my America ...our America...and she will be our America, come what may...for better or for worse.
We have a habit here in America of forgetting what a grand and noble experiment she represented when our founding fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and, then, the Constitution. We forget the sacrifices they made...in property...in family...and, finally, in their own blood.
We forget the sacrifices by all those since that time. Sacrifices made so that we might have the freedom to come together like this and discuss change.
Yesterday we spoke some about the so-called "Holocaust." Tomorrow is Memorial Day. Seems like we should really remember all those who gave everything in WWII.
75 million people throughout the world died in WWII. 75 million. Yet, we are supposed to honor and remember only 6 million? Out of 75 million!!! Just 6 million...Most of whom never even existed in the first place!
Nobody asked, but I've got a somewhat different take on the Holocaust: Why would Germany, fighting a war on two fronts...with fuel scarce...short of all resources...ship millions of Jews by railroad...hundreds and thousands of miles...to camps specially-built, just to hold them...feed them...clothe them...tattoo them in order to keep track of them....just so they could KILL them?
It doesn't even begin to make sense. If the Germans had wanted to kill the Jews, they would have done it just the way the Russian Jews killed well over 20 million Russian Christians earlier in the century...With a bullet to the base of the skull, wherever they were found.
Or, as my buddy Al likes to say: In all of German-occupied Europe , there were 2.8 million Jews. After the war, 3.6 million Jews applied for Holocaust reparations. Tragically, the remaining 6 million were lost.
America once was a beacon to the world. She was a beacon of liberty. A beacon of freedom. A beacon of moral strength. That reality became our reputation and a part of our heritage.
Now it is revealed that American troops, under orders from on high, humiliate, torture and sexually degrade prisoners of war. American troops shoot innocent Iraqi civilians...more than 10,000 of them, so far...many of them women and children.
Our heritage has been squandered for the sake of Jewish empire. Yes -- Jewish empire, not America's...not Israel's...Jewish empire.
For America has become a Jewish nation in word. America has become a Jewish nation in deed. And America has become a Jewish nation in fact.
Torture is what Israel does. Humiliation is what Israel does. Lying, double dealing and, even, genocide are Israeli traits...because those things are Jewish traits. "By deception, we shall do war." The motto of the Mossad.
We have become everything that America once stood against.
Last month, when my son told me that, at school, he no longer stood for the Pledge of Allegiance or rose when the flag went by, I replied, "Son, don't confuse America's current government with America herself. America still is here and she still has greatness. America is in her people and her back roads and her magnificent cities. But we must shake free of the Zionist cabal that rules us today."
I told him, "Pledge allegiance to the America that we know and love, for she still deserves us and she needs us now, more than ever. Stand for the flag because that flag represents us -- the real America. Our flag has been taken from us only temporarily. We will take it back."
Ladies and Gentlemen, modern self government originated with the Pilgrims, as written into the Mayflower Compact. That was to grow into America's Constitution, which was then amended to guarantee every American's God-given rights. America 's 1st Amendment is about the only thing left of that document -- and even it now is in danger of being extinguished.
Truth always used to be an absolute defense to any charge. Not any more, though. Not in the field of defamation and, now, not in the new field of thought crimes.
A legislating Supreme Court has declared a great many things not even to be speech and, therefore, not deserving of the First Amendment's protection. Obscenity laws -- "not speech." Yet, somehow, dancing nude on a table in public is protected free speech. Commercial speech, as in advertising -- "not speech."
Flag burning used to be symbolic speech, then it wasn't -- and now, it is again. Who knows what it will be tomorrow? This alone shows how we have become a nation of men and not of laws. Today, cross burning no longer is symbolic speech. Now it is a crime...per a US Supreme Court decision handed down just recently.
Hate used to be something kids did on the school grounds. Then, somehow, it became an enhancement for sentencing criminals. Now we have laws charging hate as a crime itself, separate from any other crimes.
Until recently, hate crime laws required a physical act. Courts were fond of saying, "We don't prosecute just speech in America." They don't say that any more.
The line is being blurred in application of the hate crime laws. The courts strain to find any excuse to punish the thoughts being expressed. This is the way it's done, folks.
Once people get used to thinking it's illegal to say the word "nigger," then they pass the law that actually makes that a crime, just as they are trying to do in America right now.
Leftists say there is no difference between hate crime enhancement and direct hate speech law. Oddly enough, I agree...but for a different reason. I say, that's why the laws should be rescinded.
And application of hate crime laws really work only in one direction -- I had a client recently in southern Idaho, Lonny Rae, who was charged under Idaho's hate crime law for having hurled a racial epithet through an empty doorway into which had disappeared a hulking black man who just had assaulted his wife: "Tell that nigger to get out here, cuz I'm a gonna kick his butt." He said it once.
The black man who injured his wife never was charged with anything, but Lonny Rae faced five years in prison for what he said. We finally prevailed on appeal of the conviction on a lesser-included offense, but that was a technical victory only. I'll take it. It's rare enough that the politically incorrect win in America these days, after all.
As Americans learn every day, all over America, only Whites can be guilty of hate crimes. Though Blacks commit 50 times (50 times!) the violent crimes of Whites, over 80% of all hate crimes are charged against Whites like Lonney Rae. Usually, for something just as stupid.
Today we focus on intent...tomorrow it will be effect, just as it now is in Canada. Just ask Nusrat Hussein, publisher of a Vancouver, BC Muslim newspaper who dared to reprint my essay, "It Wasn't Arabs," and for which The Canadian Jewish Congress wanted him prosecuted. Now, all that matters is if you hurt someone else's feelings -- and, usually that someone else has to be Jewish.
It is a hate crime today in Canada to say that fewer than 6 million died in the Holocaust or, even, merely to question some detail about the official Holocaust story, which has been proven to be largely a pack of lies. Just ask Ernst Zundel, who sits in jail for that very crime.
Canadian House of Commons Bill C-2, now pending, makes it illegal simply to watch any Arab TV Channels, like Al Jazeera, off a satellite. This is true! The penalty? An incredible $15,000 fine and 1 year in prison. They pretend the law is to discourage signal piracy, but why make it illegal to intercept a signal not otherwise available?
The Toronto Police Dept issued a press release recently, stating that it is "hate speech" merely to state that "Zionism equals Nazism."
In France, a TV comedian recently was charged a $10,000 fine simply for criticizing Israel in a comedy sketch.
Recent Hungary law: Two years for publicly insulting a Jew; 3 years if you mean it...that is, if you express hatred -- your intent. Their President refused to sign it, though passed by both houses of their government. Effect vs. intent. Both now get prosecuted.
This just in: Good news from Hungary. On Friday, just day before yesterday, the Hungarian Constitutional Court struck down Hungary's Hate Speech law. Immediately, the Jews started screaming "anti-Semitism."
But things are going the other way in America just now. HR3077, the International Student Higher Education Act, passed the American House of Representatives just 3 weeks ago unanimously. It creates a federal panel to cut funding to public colleges that harbor academic critics of Israel, be they professors or students. Remember, the House has already passed it and there wasn't one single "no" vote.
And, now there is HR4230, just introduced by the House Committee on International Relations. It makes the US State Department responsible for monitoring and combating anti-Semitism everywhere in the world. America becomes Israel's world thought police and will have to intervene on behalf of Jews anywhere in the world. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!
Today, we can protest our President and Vice President only in designated "free speech zones," which can be up to a mile from anywhere either happens to be speaking.
Today, Say the N word, go to jail. Tomorrow, Say the J word, go to jail. The day after tomorrow? Say the J word, die. You think it can't happen here? You are wrong.
It has been forgotten that the first thing the communists did after seizing power in Russia early last century was to make anti-Semitism punishable by death. And before they were done, the Russian jews ended up killing between 20 and 80 million white Christians, don't forget. Most Russian Christian churches were burned to the ground during that same period, but not one synagogue.
What we see happening in the area of speech in America is just the tip of the iceberg. We've seen laws bootstrapped and misapplied to so many. Get charged with disturbing the peace or served with a domestic restraining order and you can no longer own a gun in many parts of America.
Waco...Ruby Ridge...Richard Butler...Christine Greenwood... Matt Hale...David Duke...Artie Wheeler...Ernst Zundel.
What we see elsewhere is coming to America; the same Zionist cabal is cracking down here. The Patriot Act is just the latest installment.
What we've done in Afghanistan. What we're doing in Iraq...Killing women and children...Snipers shooting ambulance drivers...Bombing churches during services and killing women and children...Bombing wedding services and killing women and children...Carpet bombing cities like Fallujah and, now, Najaf...Jailhouse torture, humiliation, rape and murder.
We're taking huge US casualties...we're being lied to, just like we were in Viet Nam.
Their freedom fighters are defending against a Marxist takeover of their country. We call them terrorists and insurgents. How can you be an insurgent in your own country, fighting an invader? This simply is propaganda at work.
They say that, if you want to take the measure of a man's character, just give him some power. Well, just look at George Bush.
Bush and Ashcroft have declared their critics to be traitors and they warn the rest of us to watch what we say. The media is totally under the control of the politically correct today -- the "inner party," if you will...our Zionist rulers...Jews!
George Orwell's fantasy has become the media's reality. Today, Whites are depicted as stupid and racist, while blacks are both noble and witty. Homosexuality is a desirable lifestyle, Christians are narrow-minded bigots and Patriots are traitors.
Orwell was right, you know. It was just his timing that was off.
Orwell said, "War is Peace" -- Today, we have perpetual war to "keep the peace." Today, war is peace.
Orwell said, "Freedom is Slavery." Today, we yield civil liberties in the name of domestic security. Today, freedom is slavery.
Orwell said, "Ignorance is Strength." Today, we accuse those asking questions of being unpatriotic. Today, ignorance is strength.
Orwell's "Ministry of Peace" waged war. Today, our Defense Department conducts nonstop wars that we start.
We have gone beyond even George Orwell with our version of Newspeak.
There is nothing conservative these days about conservatives. Now, conservative means bigger government and more control.
And there is nothing liberal about liberals any more - who fall all over one another to surrender personal freedom. Liberal used to mean favoring personal freedom and liberty.
Racial diversity requires that everyone think the same. We destroy countries in order to save them -- as in Afghanistan. We kill foreign civilians in order to liberate them -- as in Iraq. We allow the Homeland Security Department to arrest our fellow citizens so we might feel safe and secure.
It is our Child Protective Services that facilitate wholesale child kidnapping, abuse, rape and murder. I've handled a few of these cases and I know what I'm talking about.
We support and create totalitarianism, then call it democracy, both at home and abroad. Anti-Semites, in truth, have become simply those of us who are hated by jews. A great many Christians have become singularly unChristian toward those with whom they disagree.
Today, there are none so intolerant as those who preach tolerance.
Today, it's the entitlement mentality of socialism, with the centralized control of everything and everybody.
We reward laziness and call it welfare. We kill our unborn and call it choice. We abuse power and call it politics. We ridicule our forefathers' values and call it enlightenment.
Today, it's the overriding control freak outlook of fascism. Used to be, we had rights. Today, we possess only privileges, dispensed at the pleasure of our federal government.
A coup has taken place -- and right under our noses. The Patriot Bill was passed by Congress without even being read by any legislator.
Laws already are on the books -- as part of the first Patriot Act -- that allow the government to visit our local libraries and bookstores to examine our reading habits. Neighborhood watch programs encourage neighbors to spy upon one another.
Provisions in Patriot Act II will allow secret arrests, warrantless searches, asset forfeiture and, believe it or not, the stripping of citizenship from Americans so that we then can be deported for "further processing." Can you say torture and murder, boys and girls?
Already, right here in Louisiana, just one month ago, the Federal 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that police officers no longer need a warrant to search your home or business. Two dissenting judges on that panel quite correctly called their ruling "the road to Hell." Well, they certainly would know it, because the legal system has been on the road to Hell for quite some time.
To be arrested under Patriot Act II, you merely have to be accused by a bureaucrat of providing support to groups designated as terrorist organizations, even if you're unaware of that group's activities.
Tomorrow's legal system will look like today's military tribunals. Tomorrow, thought control will look like today's hate crime laws.
The charge of hate is used selectively, of course. Lesbians spread their hatred of men but are never charged, while feminists teach young girls that all men are potential rapists. Blacks taunt whites with names like "honky" and "cracker," without recrimination. Jewish written scriptures overflow with hatred of Jesus Christ and Christians.
Say the "N" word while white and go to jail. Burn a cross while white and go to jail. Challenge Holocaust lies with the truth and go to jail.
And it is not enough that Zionists control America. They have to reshape it to suit themselves. Virtually every recent case that involves removal of Christian symbols from society is brought and/or prosecuted by a Jew, usually with a Jewish judge presiding.
For the sake of the feelings of 2-1/2%, all the rest of us must yield our cultural heritage. Removing "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance. Taking down plaques of the Ten Commandments. Removing crosses from public venues. Taking Christ out of Christmas, first, then Christmas out of the year-end holidays altogether.
Hate laws are a singularly Jewish invention, foisted on an unsuspecting public so as to preemptively remove the possibility of criticism of themselves. Now, anti-Semitism is being added to the proscriptions of hate laws in America .
American borders are kept wide open to a flood of illegal immigrants, apparently to dilute the White population, thereby making us more easily controlled. Yet, there is a furious struggle to jail those who criticize Jews. Contrast this policy imposed upon America with the extremely closed society of Israel, which is reserved solely for Jews.
And consider the money that Israel has cost us, facilitated by their Jewish brethren. It is nothing short of breathtaking. Economist Dr. Thomas Stauffer estimates the cost of our Middle Eastern policies at over $2.5 trillion, more than the cost of the Vietnam war. $2.5 trillion. Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
Lessee now, America has a population of 290 million and about 80 million households, so that amounts to $31,250 from your family to Israel. And that doesn't include some other items which easily could double that figure, says Dr. Stauffer. That brings us to the $64,000 question, which is approximately double the $31,250 figure just cited: Is Israel worth it to you? Or could your family have put that $64,000 taken from it to better use?
What is particularly ironic is how much of that money came back from Israel for the purpose of buying off America‚s elected representatives.
George Bush addressed the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) just ten days ago. Here's a direct quote from his speech: "By defending the freedom and prosperity and security of Israel, you're also serving the cause of America...I know there are buses outside waiting to take you to Capitol Hill. I'm told -- Howard told me there's over 500 meetings scheduled with members of the Senate and the House. That is good news. I'm sure you're going to pass this message on to them: A free, prosperous and secure Israel is in this nation's national interest."
Mr. Bush also told the AIPAC audience that, "(W)e have a duty to expose and confront anti-Semitism, wherever it is found." He followed that up with, "The demonization of Israel...can be a flimsy cover for anti-Semitism."
With those statements, Mr. Bush made clear where his loyalties lie. With Israel and against America, that's where. Could it be any more clearly stated, folks? Of course, Mr. Bush is the same fellow who gave new life to the phrase, "yer either with us or yer agin us." At least, now we know what he meant by the word "us," and it sure wasn't you and me.
Since I'm quoting him, I can't resist telling you what Mr. Bush said while speaking at a Gridiron Club dinner in Washington, D.C., three years ago: "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and those are the ones you want to concentrate on."
George W. Bush is inarticulate and politically inexperienced, yet he becomes America‚s President. His own father was President before himself. Coincidence?
He gained the Presidency without winning the popular vote. Coincidence?
His election was decided by judges who overruled the popular vote count in a state governed by his own brother. Coincidence?
Do you believe in coincidence? Or, does the word "coup" come to mind?
Today, we have a dictatorship with only the illusion of democracy; not even a pretense of a Republic anymore. The judiciary makes law as directed by the Administration. The executive rules absolutely. Legislators simply steal, from the top of the heap for the new priesthood: the legal profession. Lawyers are the privileged class today and they are destroying America .
The New World Order is here and it's now -- it is America. The UN isn't coming. "They" aren't taking us over...we are taking over the rest of the world. America writ large, but no Bill of Rights; indeed, no rights whatsoever.
The system is broken -- irretrievably broken. It can't be fixed because it won't be fixed. We can't work within the system any more to effect meaningful change because the system won't allow it. As a lawyer, I'm inside the system. Everyone says the system is broken. You don't know how bad things really are.
If you think Kerry will be different, you are wrong. There was no change from Bush to Clinton. There was no change from Clinton to Bush. There will be no change in the future, with politics as usual. Do you know what is wrong with America's 2-party system? Only one party ever loses at a time.
We've got to make a change in America. Maybe we won't succeed in making change, but we sure can deserve to succeed.
Make no mistake. We are at war. War for our very existence. If there must be trouble, let it come now, so that our children might live in peace. Let us fight the fight. Let us suffer defeat, if defeat it must be.
To win a war, one must risk death. That might seem scary, but to have nothing worth dying for...that is not living at all.
Put aside fear. There is a limit to physical pain and suffering, but there is no limit to fear.
Take it from me, in 20 years you will regret what you didn't do here and now far more than what you did do.
It was William Wallace, as played by Mel Gibson in the movie Braveheart, who said, when rallying his army to fight the British: "Aye. Fight and you may die. Run and you will live - at least, a while. And, dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days, from this day to that, for one chance - just one chance -- to come back here and tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom?"
I can't advocate a violent revolution or I would be disbarred. But, that's exactly what the likes of William Wallace, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington would do today if they were still among us. I like to think that, if we were to bring them back to life today, tomorrow they would buy a road map, a red Cadillac convertible and a bazooka, then set out for Washington, DC .
What I advocate is being prepared and awakening others to what is coming. What's coming? Not worldwide empire, American style. What's coming is America‚s comeuppance. I think it will go badly for the NWO crowd and, consequently, for America, too. But that will create an opportunity we don't currently possess -- an opportunity to start over.
America worked once as a constitutional republic. It can work again.
Don't despair at how difficult the road ahead might seem to be. None other than Dale Carnegie pointed out that the most important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. The only real failure in life is in giving up, you know.
I'm glad you are here. I'm glad you risk so much to make a difference. I'm glad so many are willing to give so much...like the distinguished speakers here today. I'm proud to call you friends.
We don't all have to be the same. We don't have to have the same abilities. We don't have to share the same beliefs. Dare to be different...even from one another. I don't know the key to success, but I do know that the key to failure is in trying to please everybody. Heaven knows that I don't manage to do that. We all have a role to play. Don't despair at your own talents.
Now, listen closely to what I'm about to tell you...Don't try to be better than anybody else. Just try to be better than yourself. Just do that, and they will never break our spirit...They will never silence us...They will never take our freedom.
Together, we can touch lives. Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can awaken America.
Together, we can take back America.
New America. An idea whose time has come.
