|WILLIAM PIERCE: FOUNDER OF THE NATIONAL ALLIANCE |
AND AUTHOR OF THE TURNER DIARIES
One of the groups which was of particular interest to us was the National Alliance headed up by a former physics professor by the name of William Pierce. Pierce was no fool and his own writings and publications were intellectually and ideologically a cut above most of the rest over on his end of the dial. Pierce authored the book, "The Turner Diaries" which was a blueprint for a white nationalist revolution. The book inspired a number of violent groups like The Order, not to mention Timothy McVey. The National Alliance was in the vanguard of white nationalist thought, organization, and action. They appeared to be a white nationalist outfit with a future.
Then they weren't. Pierce died about ten years ago, but even before that the group was on the decline. Today, the National Alliance still exists, but as the report below from the Southern Poverty Law Center demonstrates, they are a caricature of themselves. The current operation would make founder William Pierce bawl like a baby.
