I have been forced to take action over a problem that has been fermenting for some time and must inform National-Anarchist supporters that NATA-NY is no longer part of the National-Anarchist Movement (N-AM). When Craig FitzGerald became involved with us several years ago, he wanted to (a) get rid of the hyphen in 'National-Anarchism', and (b) take a non-racial approach. This was not in line with N-AM principles, of course, but in the spirit of unity and having respect for the work being done in New York, I tolerated it. In fact I ended up defending NATA when Josh Bates tried to cause problems and divide us back in 2015. I am perfectly happy, therefore, for people to adhere to the N-AM if they do not share our beliefs about Race, but what I will not tolerate is people trying to change the N-AM itself or distort our views. As some of you already know, Craig was recently involved in a discussion about the so-called 'Alt-Right' on his timeline and insinuated that "scary anarchists" were part of it. At one point, somebody called Jack Neison wrote to say "there are no anarchists who are part of the alt-right." Craig replied by saying "wrong, ATS, & NAM etc are both associated with Alt right." Steven Saragian later appeared on Craig's thread and said "I have seen Troy Southgate and others distancing the NAM from the alt right." Saragian is correct. Despite our mutual opposition to Leftism and political correctness, the N-AM has nothing whatsoever to do with the 'Alt-Right'. Indeed, when the N-AM Manifesto was written the 'Alt-Right' did not even exist and we have always made it perfectly clear that we stand beyond Left and Right altogether. Not simply the Left and Right of the Centre, but the Extreme Left and Extreme Right. Over the last few months, NATA members have become increasingly more involved with the Right, but instead of bringing people from that side over to our way of thinking, through entryism, NATA itself is being subsumed into the Right and gradually moving away from National-Anarchism. Let's be perfectly honest: if you support Trump or any other statist - regardless if the other politicians seem worse or you are sick to death of the drones on the Left, as we all are - then you cannot possibly be N-AM. This is basic common sense. We are neither Right nor Left and will not be pigeon-holed to suit the Kosher-Nationalist agenda. Commenting on the N-AM group's 'burkini-on-the-beach' thread in early-September, meanwhile, Craig said to me that "our anti Zionist efforts over the years have done more for Islam than any crying about this lady will ever do." I was disappointed by this statement. Not simply because I care very little about the woman herself, but due to the fact that I was clearly defending the wider principles of identity and personal liberty. My reasons for opposing the actions of the police, therefore, are quite different to those people on the Left and I am surprised that wasn't obvious from my accompanying comments. Meanwhile, what Craig said about anti-Zionism sounds like something your average Zionist would say. I have never actively worked for the Islamic religion in my life, in fact whilst I oppose ISIS with a vengeance many of the victims of Zionism happen to be non-Muslim and it would be completely ridiculous to ignore it on account of being unable to contain one's anger at economic migrants who, themselves, are mere consequences of capitalism. Craig also referred to a "Muslim take over". That simply isn't happening and the banks, corporations and mass media are controlled by Organised Jewry, not Muslims. In conclusion, the N-AM and NATA have now gone their own separate ways. We have a clearly-defined Manifesto and that is what attracts people to the Movement in the first place. It's the first port of call. Once people cease to honour the Manifesto or try to include us within someone else's analysis of what constitutes a political umbrella group, then the situation obviously becomes untenable. I bear no ill-will towards Craig, Gabriel or anyone else from NATA and write this with a heavy heart. Unfortunately, however, all the time they are unable to see that every politician is working for the Zionist system and willingly accept the terminological parameters set by others then it seems there is very little basis for a working relationship and their actions are undermining what we are attempting to achieve. As I said, working alongside the N-AM is one thing, but telling people we are 'Alt-Right' or actively promoting the likes of Trump and Putin sends out a completely wrong message and is unacceptable for those of us who reject the Right as much as the Left. ~ Troy Southgate
