The Butler Plan consists of four broad aspects or phases involving the creation, the buildup, and the operation of the Northwest Front. These phases are not nailed to any given time frame; so much as they entail a specific kind of activity and an agenda of goals or benchmarks to be achieved. All four phases will be simultaneously ongoing in the various Party units around the Homeland, and at any given time the NF will be involved with issues relating to any or all of these phases. There will be a lot of overlap.
Phase One: Relocation of the better elements of the existing racially conscious White community to the Homeland.
This will be an ongoing project from this point on, and will continue even after political independence is achieved. It will be the primary function of the Homeland to be just that, a homeland and refuge for all the persecuted and endangered Aryan peoples of the world from Afrikaners to Serbs to Ulstermen. Racially conscious White immigrants coming into the Homeland will hereafter be referred to as Incomers, to differentiate them from native-born Northwesterners and organic migrants (see below.)
Once the checkbooks finally open, and funds and resources become available, the NF will eventually establish a Northwest Agency similar in scope and purpose to the Jewish Agency that handled—and still handles—the bulk of Jewish immigration to Israel. The Northwest Agency will not concern itself so much with political or propaganda issues, except in a very limited way to convince potential Incomers of the necessity to Come Home. This agency will provide information, advice, and various kinds of practical assistance in regards to the relocation of racially conscious Whites.
It should be emphasized that at the present time, the Party is unable to provide accommodation for Incomers, and this situation is unlikely to change at any time in the foreseeable future. The old days of the “barracks” or compound where dysfunctional young men found a free flop, and all too often a refrigerator full of beer, are gone and will probably remain gone for some time.
We understand and accept that many White people desiring to Come Home will be little short of destitute, but we simply do not have the resources to provide assisted passage like Israel does today and Australia used to do. People who Come Home to the Northwest must do so like the old Western pioneers, completely off their own bat and on their own dime. They must load up all of their worldly goods into a Conestoga wagon (or Ryder truck, these days) and set off into the unknown.
Let’s consider this a test of character. We need people with that old pioneer spirit who do not come expecting to be given things on their arrival. The American sense of entitlement stops here. We will either recover that old pioneer spirit, or else we will perish from the face of the earth.
The Scouting Trip
It is vitally necessary that prospective White migrants to the Northwest make at least one preliminary visit or scouting trip to the Homeland before they make the permanent move, specifically a visit to their proposed area of settlement. Prospective migrants must get a look at us, and we must get a look at them.
It must be an ironclad rule that no one simply packs up all their worldly goods into a U-Haul and heads in a general northwesterly direction, showing up on someone’s doorstep with nothing but a T-shirt and ten dollars in their pocket. Early pioneers who tried that kind of thing usually came to grief. Ask the survivors of the Donner Party. Every effort must be made to insure that prospective migrants are coming to something, not running away from something. Prospective migrants, especially families, need to have jobs and accommodation lined up beforehand if at all possible, and they need to arrive with sufficient assets so they can immediately establish themselves in their new communities.
This project, in short, must be implemented by and for responsible adults who know what they are doing, who know why, and who are involved in the Migration because they want to put something into it, not to try and get something out of it. The Northwest Agency will be there to assist these responsible adults with that process.
Up until now, insofar as we have had a strategy for resettlement in the Northwest (that hasn’t been very far), the plan has been to bring people into one area alone, the Coeur d’Alene/Hayden Lake/Sandpoint district of northern Idaho. This of course dates back to the days of Pastor Butler himself and the Hayden Lake compound or clubhouse. This plan, or anything like it, is fatally flawed. First, it allows the federals to concentrate their own resources against us in a relatively small “killing field.” Secondly, the population in remote rural areas is so sparse that newcomers stand out, and can easily be identified and targeted by the enemy. Especially at the beginning, we need to be able to melt into the local population and become indistinguishable.
In addition to these considerations, metropolitan areas contain more racial diversity, and it will be far easier to work with the local native born White population when there are minorities and the problems minorities bring to point out as examples. We are not seeking to run away into the north woods and hide in a log cabin. Ask Randy Weaver how that one worked out. We are seeking to build a new nation. The realities of 21st century life dictate that our movement be based where the White people are. In the Northwest that means about two dozen metropolitan areas. Eventually the Northwest racial community can establish facilities in the countryside; indeed, we must familiarize ourselves with the rural Northwest and be comfortable in it, but we will not make a revolution from a few cabins in the deep forest.
On a preliminary basis, the following areas within the Homeland need to be targeted for the establishment of the first racial nationalist communities, based on economic and geographic factors. Jobs are reasonably plentiful for those with skills, and these initial colonies are spaced sufficiently close to one another to create a chain wherein racial nationalists in each area can offer one another some kind of material and logistic support system. There should be a racial nationalist presence in every state capital, so we can have someone on the ground to keep up with state government’s attempts to suppress the NF and drive us out. These will be our initial dots that we must then connect.
Idaho: Coeur d’Alene, Boise, Pocatello, Post Falls, Nampa.
Oregon: Portland, Salem, Eugene, Medford, Bend, Corvallis. (the I-5 corridor.) The eastern part of Oregon is very sparsely populated and economically stagnant, and will be one of the last areas we get into. This also applies to eastern Washington outside the Spokane area. Portland itself is frankly just as noxious as any major American city, including chapters of most major Los Angeles gangs, and migrants should concentrate on the white suburbs.
Washington: Spokane, Bellingham, Vancouver, and the working class suburbs ringing Seattle, to include Tacoma and Olympia. Based on experience, it is suggested that the Seattle “ring” consist of small groups of people in Kent, Bremerton, and Everett, all sufficiently blue collar areas where White racial consciousness may be found. There should also be concentration on the military complex at Fort Lewis.
Phase Two: The formation of the Northwest Front as a fighting revolutionary Party.
This Party must engage in massive, serious propaganda and missionary work among native Northwesterners and organic migrants.
One of the primary weapons the enemy will use against us will be to stir up the White, native-born population of the Northwest against the evil racist “outsiders,” portraying us as dysfunctionals, criminal conspirators, etc. In some localities this may well reach the level of physical violence by police or good old boy vigilante types. Whites everywhere are filled with anger and frustration, and will jump at the chance to take that anger and frustration out on a socially approved scapegoat. We will constitute the Northwest’s one officially unprotected minority, fair game for every honky jackass with an Amurrican flag on his baseball cap and a John Wayne complex. Such types will be egged on by the local power structure and by the Chamber of Commerce who view us (correctly) as bad for business.
Eventually there will be enough of us to provide would-be John Waynes who try such tactics with a salutary lesson, something that will become necessary to win their respect. No one respects a people who allow themselves to be victimized. But that is not a long-range solution. We have to win these people to our side, not fight them. They are not the enemy, however cruelly brainwashed they have been. How we handle relations with the native-born will determine whether or not this entire effort succeeds.
We must always bear in mind that by and large, precisely because they have grown up in a more or less all-White environment, the native-born Northwesterners genuinely do not understand what multiculturalism and diversity means for them in the long run. They honestly don’t get it, and we must conduct the most massive public relations and propaganda effort in Movement history to convince them, using every tool we have from web sites to participation in the local 4-H Club. We must let them know that while we will not allow ourselves to be victimized or run out of town, we do not hate them, we are not conspiring against them, and we are their brothers. We must seize on local issues and local concerns to make them understand that independence and freedom for the Northwest are in their interest as well as ours.
Above all, we ourselves must not engage in bizarre and dysfunctional behaviors, or display any outward physical appearance that will allow the established order to portray us to the native born as “the Other.” The shaven heads and the tattoos and the petty hooliganism of the Skinhead scene must henceforth be kept away from the Northwest. The local people where we settle must understand that we are fellow Americans and people like themselves, not the Other whom it is socially acceptable to stone. At the same time they must understand that we are here, we are here to stay, that more of us are coming, and that we will not be stopped.
The Northwest novels of Harold Covington are fiction. There must never, under any circumstances, be any excessive display or emphasis on guns or weaponry as far as the NF’s open and political activity goes. Those of us who are gun enthusiasts should join their local NRA–affiliated clubs and work within the local Second Amendment community, to be sure, but until the time comes to strike for freedom there must be no waving of guns in the air for the TV cameras. A firearm has only one use, and that is to shoot. A firearm that is not shooting is just a piece of machined metal. If we are not going to fire our weapons, then we need to keep them in the closet until such time as we have the courage and the strength of will to use them for their intended purpose. When we break out the guns, we will do so for the purpose of using them, not flourishing them aloft for the television cameras. This will be a revolution, not a made for TV movie.
We will experience almost as much difficulty interacting with organic migrants. By this term we refer to Whites from other parts of the country who have recently relocated to the Northwest for pretty much the same racial reasons that we have, but who would cut off their own bodily organs rather than admit to this fact in public. Many of these come from California, that several years ago became the first state that is officially majority non-White. Organic migrants can usually be spotted through the use of code words like clean air, good schools, low taxes, a stable environment, a good place to raise kids, in short, all the various concealed terms kosher conservatives use to mean “no niggers or spics.” Organic migrants are often liberal elitists who want to have their cake and eat it too, but who have been forced to come to grips with racial reality and are now struggling to build a politically correct and acceptable rationalization for their reluctance to live in the multi-racial paradise they helped create in their own cities elsewhere.
Long term, the organic migrants will be most approachable when they realize the mudflow has followed them from California or Milwaukee or wherever, and if they do not resist they will be forced into flight again. But to where? The Arctic? Australia? Patagonia? Native born will become approachable as they themselves start getting a taste of diversity and political correctness, especially through encroaching affirmative action and sodomy. John Wayne wannabes with Amurrican flags on their baseballs caps will become much more approachable when they lose their jobs or promotions to unqualified minorities. When liberal mothers and fathers in Idaho and Washington see their little girl coming home from school with her copy of Heather Has Two Mommies and their little boy coming home with bruises where he has been beaten by blacks or Hispanics, they will begin to catch on real quick. The organic migrants are in fact quite likely to have assets and skills that we will very badly need in the creation of our new country. They are a potential base for converts.
We must understand quite clearly that the White population of these three states are not enemies; they are our challenge. For the first few years there will not be enough incoming settlers to make that much difference to the political or the demographic situation. We either win a sufficiently large percentage of those eight and a half million Whites to our side to become viable and secure in our settlement program, or we will fail and our race will perish. Three hundred million people, almost half of them non-White, we will never win over. Nine million people, sharing our blood if not our views and our experience? There, we’ve got a chance.
Phase Three: The insertion of the Party into actual politics, and the creation of a bona fide political movement for Northwest independence.
This is self-explanatory. In actual practice, beyond the creation of a few basic policy documents and a general consensus surrounding the idea of independence, this phase is going to have to pretty much go onto the back burner for a time, while we concentrate on Phases One and Two. We cannot allow a situation of too many chiefs and almost no Indians to develop, such as has been the hallmark of most Movement endeavors.
A revolution cannot succeed in the absence of the Revolutionary Tripod, the three conditions without that true change cannot take place. Let us review these three essential conditions for change again.
1. There must be a bona fide revolutionary movement, devoted to seizing state power directly from the hands of the existing power structure. Not conservative, not reformist, not willing to work within the existing system, but dedicated to its destruction. This is the Northwest Front.
2. There must be withdrawal of the consent of the governed, wherein a majority of the people in a country or territory no longer wishes to be ruled by the existing power structure and desire change. Not just any change, but specifically that power is assumed by the revolutionary movement, in this case the NF.
3. There must be loss of the credible monopoly of armed force by the state. Acts of insurrection and guerrilla warfare must take place, actual and serious physical damage must be inflicted on the enemy, and no one must be caught or punished for these acts. This condition is necessary to force the power structure into repression and acts of atrocity and retaliation against the general population in their frustration at being unable to locate and apprehend the real guerrillas.
Our long term goal is to present the government of the United States with a situation whereby the struggle to retain the Northwest becomes politically and financially insupportable, and letting the Homeland go is the lesser of two evils from their point of view. This is the way in that all colonial wars are won, and in order to win we must reduce our racial struggle to the status of a colonial war wherein writing off X amount of territory is an option for the occupying power, should it become expedient.
It is impossible for us to imagine such a situation at this time, given the apparently ironclad, permanent grip that the federal government exerts on all aspects of our lives. But we are not talking about doing anything within the context of today. We are talking about the future, when a Soviet-style break-up of the United States into separate racial, ethnic, and interest groups is historically bound to occur. Nothing lasts forever, and the current order will not last forever either.
We must prepare for the time to come, when all of this is more than just paper fantasy, when the political and economic realities make our victory a possibility if we are ready to seize it. It will take many years and require a big assist from economic and political developments within the New World Order to create this tripod in the Pacific Northwest. But it will happen eventually. We need to have the Northwest Front slim and trim and ready to break out at a moment’s notice if needed.
Phase Four: The seizure of state power through the creation of the Northwest American Republic in the power vacuum created by the collapse of the United States.
There can be little doubt that the United States will eventually undergo a Soviet-style breakdown of centralized power, and lose the ability to enforce its will throughout the continent. This will transmute into direct action to free our Homeland from the iron heel of the federal government. Again, for the first few years we need to concentrate on Phases One and Two, on getting our people in and then hanging on in the face of intense local and governmental opposition. These first two phases are going to be taking up the bulk of our efforts for a long time. We must learn to walk before we can run.
One of the main things we will need to concentrate on is creating an economic infrastructure that will eventually enable us to employ our own people and free them from the now ubiquitous danger of establishment retaliation through loss of their jobs. Bear in mind that we are engaged in something that our ancestors understood and did superbly: we are nation-building, and there is a hell of a lot more to nation building than singing around the campfire and throwing the odd bomb on the barricades.
We must utilize our human resources to the max. One of the things our forebears had to understand in order to survive was economic self-sufficiency. Remember the gentleman adventurers who first came to Jamestown and damned near starved to death because they would not work and searched for gold instead of farming and hunting and building shelter? We must be able to support ourselves in the face of pressure from the local ZOG that will be almost as intense, in its way, as that the Indians put on the first settlers.
By economic self sufficiency, we mean the actual production of wealth or essential goods and services. Economic self-sufficiency does not mean pyramid schemes or marginal business franchises or the assorted get-rich-quick deals that flourish in the right wing, most of which are simply scams to try and get at old people’s savings. It means bona fide skills and resources to provide real goods and services. One of the major investments our new Northwest community must make is in vocational training for young White people. Every young White man and woman must possess a marketable skill, so that they can survive on their own. A new nation does not just need soldiers or political agitators. A new nation requires farmers, engineers, doctors, architects, electricians, road builders and heavy equipment operators, construction trades, food processing and packaging skills, teachers, and manufacturers.
We must bring to the Northwest serious, adult men and women who are coming to build a new nation, not drink beer and scream “White Power!” and show off their tattoos. Young people especially who are contemplating the Homeland must be encouraged to stay in school and learn an economically viable trade, so that when they immigrate to the Northwest they don’t just say, “Hi, I am a White racist.” They must be able walk into a community and say, “Hello, my name is Joe, and I am a computer software designer, or a skilled auto mechanic, or a master electrician, or a nurse, or I can fix your copy machine, or I can fly your helicopter, or I can bake bread …”
The Name: The name of the state we propose to create shall be Northwest American Republic. (NAR)
The esoteric and technical racial term Aryan needs to be avoided, because it causes confusion among the uninitiated, and winning over the uninitiated is how we are going to win. For better or worse, the word Aryan is now associated in the minds of native-born Northwesterners with an image of tattooed, shaven-headed punks who swill beer and wave assault rifles in the air and scream “White Power!” The fact that this is untrue, and that the native born Northwesterners are Aryans themselves by race if not in mind, is beside the point. In politics, perception is everything. It is bad propaganda to confront people, on their initial contact, with ideas, concepts, terms and symbols that require an immediate, long and abstruse explanation. Esoteric terms like Cascadia, Arya, etc. should be avoided as well. They sound odd, and we are going to have trouble enough overcoming our image problem as things stand.
The Flag: There is one idea we do need to begin propagating immediately among the population of the Northwest, and that is the creation and general recognition of a flag for the coming Homeland. The one point where Mr. Covington has made an arbitrary decision on the way things will be done is in the matter of the NAR flag, based upon his experience in Ireland. It is a simple, dignified tricolor design with no controversial symbols, or anything requiring more than the simplest symbolic explanation. The said flag has now been copyrighted via the Northwest novels, so it cannot be stolen by the Jews, as they have done with other names and symbols in the past.
The Northwest Tricolor consists of three vertical bars of equal length, similar to the French, Irish, and Italian tricolors. Left to right, the bars are blue, white, and emerald green, with the blue bar to the flagstaff. They symbolize blue for the Northwest sky, green for the land, and white for the people who will dwell in between the two. (Horizontal bars were considered, and are in fact used on the left-wing “Cascadia” flag, but unfortunately the African nation of Sierra Leone already uses that design.)
The flag of the new nation will be our rallying point. It must be displayed, distributed, and publicized the world over until it becomes known as the modern day equivalent of the Confederate Battle Flag and the Hakenkreuzfahne as a generally recognized symbol of Aryan hope and courage in the face of racial death.The Butler Plan: Summation
