Introduction by Dr.William Luther Pierce to George Lincoln Rockwell’s Speech at Brown University November 30, 1966:rnThank you very much, (unintelligible). Let me start off this speech by saying that I am very, very grateful, and deeply moved, to be addressing my old university after five years of speaking at colleges all over the country, and very grateful for the opportunity afforded to me by the academic community, it is the last, as far as I’m concerned, the last vestige of free speech left in our country. Sorry to say it’s usually accorded to me by liberals, conservatives are usually too chicken to let me speak, and want to I again say how grateful I am regardless of the politics of the Open Mind Club, I am most grateful to them for the fight they put up to see that there is not only free speech for communists but also that there is free speech for anti-Communists. [clapping]rnrnI would like to also say that I am not here to abuse that privilege, I am not going to insult anybody or use any racial epithets or that sort of thing. When I operate in the streets I am not ashamed to say that I agitate, my opponents, they certainly agitate, they use every possible method of agitation, and in the street that’s often the only way you can gain public attention and I do it all the time and go to jail for it. I am not here to agitate. You see no uniforms, there is no party buttons, there will be no attempt in any way to agitate, I am here to present to the best of my ability facts and ideas, which changed me from an ordinary student at Brown University, as many of you are, to the point where I am proud to stand before you as a National Socialist. And I’m going to try to give you some insight tonight into the facts which came to my attention, which I believe you’ve been denied, which caused me to make that change. All I can do, ladies and gentlemen, is to present to you a few, a very few samples of what I consider to be shocking facts, and ask you to do what I had to do after I found out these things and go check them out for yourselves.rnrnNow I understand, unlike any other speech that I’ve made around the country, and I make them every day, all over America and around Canada, I have a paragraph here from this mornings paper, says ‘an ad hoc committee formed to educate the student body and the public at large about Rockwell’s group, has been working ALL WEEK to nullify anything in advance the effect of anything Rockwell has to say.’ Now, ladies and gentlemen, there is a concept known as prejudging things, when you judge something in advance before you’d heard or seen it, and it’s called prejudice, and anybody who has walked into this hall [crowd laughs and claps, some boo] anybody who has walked into this hall and prejudged my speech on the basis of this weeks work of my opponents, who haven’t got the guts to face me, they will never debate me, I have asked and asked and asked if they will, in a formal manner, stand up and debate me, and I will hereby again, if in an orderly manner at any time I will be reinvited here I will debate the head of the ADL, I will debate the B’nai Brith, the Halel Foundation, or anybody else who wants to stand up and challenge the facts that I’ll present but they’ll never do it, they talk behind my back and what a rat I am and show you movies and so forth, propaganda, they will not debate the facts. This is an unusual circumstance, it’s always done at most colleges, I’ve never seen anybody spend a whole week trying to ruin what I can do with fifty minutes, and I think I’m gonna cream them anyway. [Mixed laughter and booing]rnrnNow let me start of my regular presentation by saying this to you, ladies and gentlemen: to the best of my knowledge you’ve had at least three communists speak here at Brown University and at Pembroke in fact one of them, I think Mr. Jackson had tea with the girls here at Pembroke. I wonder - [laughter] He did and I think it was two years ago, he not only spoke but they had a tea for him. I wonder how many of the jews who have been raising the devil about me speaking here raised any fuss at all about this communist not only speaking but having tea with our Pembroke girls. I have never heard about any jew fussing about any communist coming to speak, the only time they fuss is when an anti-Communist comes to speak.rnrnNow I’ll present that for your own judgment, you look back and see if you remember any fuss, any $700 worth of policemen necessary to protect any communist speaker. I haven’t heard of it. Now the reason for it, ladies and gentlemen, is because the jews do not want certain facts to come to your attention. I maintain your not only the victims of what they call managed news, your the victims of suppressed news. News that you are not allowed to hear. I didn’t hear it. When I was sitting out there where you are- in fact the last time I was at Alumni Hall, come to think of it, I wasn’t sitting I was hanging onto a girl about half stewed at a dance. [Laughter] In the times when I used to be sitting out there as a member of the Brown audience and they told me about Adolf Hitler and that he was out to conquer my country, I didn’t just think about it or talk about it, I did something about it, I enlisted as a sailor in the United States Navy to go fight him, because I believed all that I had been told, and I found out that I was told a lot of lies, and I’m going to present some of them to you tonight.rnrnNow what I maintain, ladies and gentlemen, the whole thrust of my speech tonight will be that you cannot have an educated opinion, you cannot mange the affairs of a so called Democracy unless you are given all the facts. If you are denied some of the facts, or if the facts are twisted and misrepresented, then you cannot possibly guide the ship of state, any more than a navigator could guide a ship if you deprived him the information of his Latitude and Longitude, the speed of the ship and so forth. You have got to let people know the facts of the matter before they can judge correctly, and I maintain that most people who are liberals, and I have found that they are sincere, dedicated and sincere people are liberals and most of them in the academic community are liberals, the reason is that the facts that they are given leaves them no choice. Now the reason for it, ladies and gentlemen, I maintain as I’ve said is that you are deprived of facts. Your minds work in many ways like a computer. You are not exactly like a computer but your minds work like a computer in this respect: If you feed into a computer false information you know that you are not going to get good solutions out. If you feed lies into a computer you’re going to get lies and false information out. If you neglect to put information into a computer, you can’t get valid answers. Your minds work the same way. If they have some way of keeping from you knowledge that you must know, you cannot make valid discussions.rnrnNow I’ve said I cannot present all of the facts that changed me to the point where I am leading a Nazi movement around the world, I can present a few of the most shocking. And it is my hope, and it’s been my experience throughout the country as I’ve spoken, in spite of all the prejudging, in spite of all the education as they call it before I speak, when I show you some of these facts, I think that you will have the same experience have had at other colleges, some of you will have the guts and integrity to go at least and check, and find out whether these things exist, whether they are what I say they are, and if they are you will begin to change your judgment. Now before I present my first document let me say this: I invariably run into the business they say ‘Oh, well Rockwell’s just waving a piece of paper up there, how do we know what it says on it or if he’s taking it out of context?’ Well, first, let me say this to you, every document that I am going to present to you, you can get from me for free, for nothing. All the address you need is George Lincoln Rockwell, Arlington Virginia, and I will send you the whole document, not the part I’m going to read, because I can’t read all of the documents, all of the whole of them, I will read portions of them and you can send for and get the entire document. Before I made this speech I was required to submit the documents to the committee, they’ve seen them all. And I assure you that on the level I’ll go further, if anybody, Jewish War Veteran or anybody else here can prove that I am lying about any of these documents, thtat they don’t exist, they’re phony documents, I will go to work for Harry Golden and Martin Luther King for nothing, the NAACP. [Laughter, clapping]rnrnNow, ladies and gentlemen, the first document I want to show you is by a man of unimpeachable credentials, a man I’m sure you cannot say is a bigot or a hatemonger or if there’s anything wrong with him, a man that you cannot find fault with, and I think what he says you will find extremely shocking. This document right here, it’s reduced, it’s a full page newspaper article, the author of it is Winston Churchill, his picture is on it. I wonder if there’s some people booing or hissing for Winston Churchill, that’s a new one on me. Winston Churchill is the author of this article, I will give you the date, I got it out of the Library of Congress, February 8 1920 Illustrated London Sunday Herald. The Library of Congress made the copy from which I reproduced this copy here, it’s called Zionism Vs Bolshevism, a Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People. And Winston Churchill says in this article the Jews are being torn, half of them want to be Zionists and half of them want to be Communists. And he suggests they should all be Zionists. But he does say something that I want you to listen to, he discusses the Russian Revolution.rnrnNow let me read you a paragraph in which Winston Churchill, in which he’s first discussing the Zionists, now he’s gonna take up the Communists and the Jews and here’s what he says: “International Jewry, a violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort, rides the schemes of the international Jews. The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men made up among the unhappy populations of where they, the Jew, are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all of them, have forsaken the faith of their forefathers and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes for the next world. This movement,” talking about Communism, “This movement among the Jews is not new, from the days of Spartacus Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx-” And he was, parenthetically, Karl Marx, of course, was Jewish. “To those of Karl Marx and down to Trotsky-” and I think very few of you know that Trotsky’s real Name was Bronstien, Leon Bronstien, not Trotsky. “to Trotsky in Russia, Bela Kuhn in Hungary, Rosa Lutzenberg in Germany and Emma Goldman in the United States, this world wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality has been steadily growing. It played, as the modern writer Mrs. Webster has so ably shown as an indefinitively recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the main spring of every subversive movement in the 19th century.” Now listen to this, ladies and gentlemen, this is Winston Churchill telling you about the Russian Revolution, “and now, at last, this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America, have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of this enormous empire.”rnrnNow, you Jewish War Veterans, you just prove that Churchill didn’t say that or you just prove that I misread it or you just prove that the Russian Revolution wasn’t Russian - or rather that it wasn’t Jewish, that it was Russian and I’ll quit. What I’m telling you, ladies and gentlemen, is that you have not been told in your history classes that the Russian Revolution wasn’t Russian, it was the capture of Russia by the Jews. That’s the truth. (in the audience, someone yells something) Now you call me any name you want, if Winston Churchill said this (same person yells something) and if it’s true, then you must ask yourself how come you haven’t been told this, why are you not allowed to know this? (same interruption)rnrnNow yelling and hollering, I go through this all the time, nobodies gonna shut me up by yelling or it would have been done long ago. I’m just telling you that this is just ONE of the facts that I began to look in to. Then I began to discover there were more. Let me have the bag there. I want to show you some documents I got from the United States Archives, from the United States of America Archives in Washington, DC, sealed with the seal of the Untied States, they’re sealed with ribbons here, here’s one of them. These are reports- again, if there is anything fake about theses documents, you just stop me, put me out of business, this is a public statement, if this is phony you just prove it and I’ll fold up and quit. In fact, I’ll work for the Jewish War Veterans. [Laughter] I’ll put on a Star of David, if this is phony. Here we have a report, remember, I will send you a printed copy if you wish so you can check to see if this is on the level, it’s gotten from the United States government, it would be forgery to fake it, and here is a report form the intelligence section of the United States Army, to the United States Army and the President of the United States, during the Russian Revolution, about the nature of the Russian Government. This is a table made up in 1918. The correspondent of the London Times shows that at that time there were 384 commissars in the top government of Russia, including 2 negroes, 13 Russians, 15 Chinamen, 22 Armenians and more than 300 Jews. This is the government of Russia. Now, here comes another report, in the same dossier here, he says “It is probably unwise to say this loudly in the United States, but the Bolshevik movement is, and has been made up since its beginning, and guided and controlled by Russian Jews of the greasiest type.” [mixed reaction]rnrnThat’s the fact ladies and gentlemen. Now these documents, when I first saw these things, myself, I couldn’t believe them, I felt ‘How could I possibly not have heard this from all my history professors, from Professor Ducasse(sp?) in the philosophy department where I was a major, how come I didn’t know about this?’ What I first thought was somebody is pulling my leg. So I started studying the Jewish documents. I went to the San Diego Library and got the Universal Jewish Encyclopedia, you must have it over here in the library. Go get it. And look up the Russian Revolution and you will find these Jews BOASTING how they put on the Russian Revolution. Who reads it? They don’t assign that as a history course, this is for their boys to read so they can tell each other how good they’re doing. You’re not supposed to know about it. And I maintain that unless you do know it, unless you do know where Communism is coming from and you’re willing to talk about it you’ll never be ready to deal with it, whether you like it or not. I mean whether you like Communism or you don’t like it, you ought at least to know that the Jewish people are behind it. And once you understand that, then you can deal realistically with it, whether you like it or not, one way or the other. Until you do know, until you can talk about it, you are deprived of information.rnrnNow let me point something out, ladies and gentlemen, in Russia, you have freedom of speech, you can criticize anybody you want except the Communists, in China, you have freedom of speech, you can criticize anybody you want except the Communists, in Cuba, you can criticize anybody you want except Castro, in the United States of America you can criticize Irishmen, Italians, Frenchmen, people from Brown, Pembrokers, but you can’t criticize Jews, and if you think you can, try it tomorrow, go out and say ‘You know, I think Rockwell is right, I think these Jews are pulling something rotten on us.’ Try it! You’ll be called an anti-semite, you’ll be subjected to terrorism- (interruption) what the kids that have invited- (continuing interruption)rnrnYou don’t believe it, eh? (Mixed Chatter) I have spoken all over the country now for years, no difficulties at all, this is the first time when I have ever spoken where I have been treated so dishonorably, and the pressure comes from the Jewish War Veterans, all these jewish groups, who NEVER complain about the Communists! I had to come up here at my expense, no fee, and I had to pay to come here and talk here at Brown University because, first of all, my invitations were canceled by the college, and then, when a brave bunch of kids invited me again, they were subjected to every kind of pressure in the world. A good example is right here where you’re sitting. I told them, every time I speak at a college I draw the biggest crowds of every speaker they’ve ever had, except possibly the president or somebody like that. Get a big hall. So what do they give me? Alumni Hall, and then they only let you have a few and then they charge you $700 for police protection. And then you tell me that there is not some pressure? Why hasn’t this happened to the Communists? If these jews are not committing pressure to prevent you from hearing this, how come this all happens right here, right now, tonight, in front of your eyes? What’s going on? I maintain there is nobody that has the right to tell you what you can hear and what you can’t hear.rnrnNow I want to show you why you are not allowed to know these facts, and how the jews go about it. They don’t burn books. They’re much more clever than to burn them. They have a much better technique and we have a letter here that they sent out which will show you what their technique is, which is much viler than burning books. This is from the Anti Defamation League of B’nai Brith, to publishers all over America, again, send for this document, anybody who wants to challenge me, just send for it and I’ll send you a copy of our original Photostat, you send for it and you read it for yourself. I’m going to read you some excerpts and show you how these jews operate so YOU can’t find out what’s going on. Listen to this: “Scribners and Sons has just published a book by Madison Grant entitled The Conquest of a Continent. It is extremely antagonistic to Jewish interests. Emphasized throughout is the Nordic Superiority theory and the utter negation of any melting pot philosophy in regard to America.” The book, by the way, at no time criticizes jews, it simply says that the White man is a master race that created America. The jews don’t want you to read about that or hear that. Now, listen to what they do about it, now think, I’m going to read about six words in the next sentence or seven words, you think what these words mean, and what they’ve done. Here’s the beginning of the third paragraph, “We are interested in stifling the sale of this book.” And they have. You can’t get it. You can’t buy it. They don’t burn it, because then you’d know about it. They just quietly use their business genius, and I am not about to deny that they’re business geniuses, they can rise to the top of almost any business, they get control, and they can simply say to booksellers ‘if you sell any book that we don’t like, you won’t get any more books.’ You can’t buy books that they don’t like. And I maintain that strongly. I told you, if I’ve written a book, maybe it’s the worst book in the world, but don’t you think that you should be able to decide that for yourself?rnrnDo you think that the Jewish War Veterans and the Anti Defamation League should be able to get together and say ‘You will not read Rockwell’s book, you won’t hear him speak. If he does speak, he’ll speak in a small hall. We’ll cut off his money, we’ll do anything to shut him up.’ Well, I don’t think you’re so stupid that you can’t judge, and you have to have a bunch of Jewish War Veterans tell you what you’re gonna like and what you’re not gonna like. This is what the whole thrust of my speech is, is that you are not only being denied information, but you are being TOLD what you will like and what you will not like, and, in case you rebel, in case you say ‘oh, well, I won’t go along with that,’ they use plain old fashioned terrorism. If anybody thinks that they don’t, try doing what I’m doing, do it yourself, get up and give a so-called anti-semetic speech, start talking about Churchill’s paper out here on campus and unless you’re very well organized and you’ve got proof, you’ll find yourself with a bloody nose. [light laughter] I’m telling the truth, you simply have got to fight. These Jewish War Veterans will attack you. They have attacked me physically. [laughter] I’m not afraid of them, I’d be glad to walk out any place where they are, but they don’t argue with you, they won’t deny what you say, they just say ‘we’re gonna shut you up.’ Now I don’t think that’s American. These people claim they’re American. They don’t want to shut up Communists, they want to shut up anti-Communists. And if that doesn’t tell what they’re doing, then I don’t know what I have to show for proof.rnrnI’d like to show one more document here. This ones a hard one to get. This one’s about by the American Jewish Committee, put out in secret, says not for publication. And they sent it all around to the editors and publishers of America, again, if you don’t believe me, you’re welcome to get a copy of this charming jewish document. It’s called ‘Bigot Seeking Buildup: The Newest Techniques of George Lincoln Rockwell.’ And it’s eight long pages, my fellow Brown and Pembroke students here, eight long pages on how to be sure that you never hear a word that I have to say. It says never argue with Rockwell, never refute his facts, just point out what a rat he is. That’s the substance of this whole book. Just keep calling him a rat. A louse. Sick. Anything you can. Call him names, argumenum ad homonum, never argue his facts. Because they can’t. They have no facts to argue. They just simply abuse me, and attack me physically, which is not argument, they have no facts to go on. (Someone yells from crowd) You can holler all you want. Everywhere people are getting fed up with what’s called minority pressure. People are fed up with it. This is supposed to be a MAJORITY government, not a government by a bunch of minorities who say ‘if you don’t go the way we do we’re going to urinate in the streets, we’re gonna have demonstrations over here,’ this government is supposed to go the way the majority wants it to go. But it ain’t. This government goes the way the minority that’s the loudest and the brassiest says it must go, and you know who that loud and brassy minority is. They get their way, and they’ve got to the point where- how many of you have the nerve anymore to come out and say an Italian, or a Frenchman, or an Irishman, how many have the nerve to just say the word ‘jew’? When I was in college right here we used to say ‘a nice jewish boy.’ You never just say a jew. Your scared. You don’t maybe realize it down deeply, but they’ve got us scared to death. And that’s one of the reasons (heckling)rnrnNow any of you that think that you haven’t just try criticizing them. Just try when you leave here, just as an experiment, whether you believe it or not, pick out the nearest jew and say ‘You know, I think Rockwell is right, I think he’s got something there,’ you see what happens to you. [light laughter] If you’re a professor here, get up in your classroom tomorrow and say ‘I think Rockwell is right,’ and see how long you’re teaching at Brown University. This oughta show you something. This is supposed to be a free college, there are a lot of colleges in the country where people say ‘I’m a Communist, let’s send blood to the Viet Cong,’ and if they try to fire him, the student go out and kidnap the dean, tear up the school and so forth, why couldn’t a professor here be a Nazi? You just try it.rnrnThis has resulted, ladies and gentlemen, this climate of terrorism against an idea, any idea against- the fact that there is not equality among the races, or any information about the jews is banned. If you mention anything about the races not being equal, or that the jews might be mixed up in Communism, or behind race mixing, if you talk about any of those things, you are silenced and shut up. And I don’t think that’s right. Maybe I’m wrong. I fully recognize that I could be wrong. But the way to show me that I’m wrong and get me to quit isn’t to beat me over the head. Nobody will ever get me to beating on me. Nobody will ever get me to quit by hollering ‘rat’, like this man did. No matter what you call me, as long as I think I’m right in my heart I’m going to preach it. But not one of these people that yelled, not one of them, has ever got the guts to stand up in public and debate me, and say ‘no, your facts are wrong, Mr. Rockwell. Here is the truth,’ never. In six years of speaking at colleges will one of these people do it. They say they will. I’ve had them come up on stage and shake my hand, they’re gonna debate next week, and when the next week comes they’re gone, they’re on a vacation. You can’t find ‘em.rnrnThese people have no argument to stand by. They have no facts. I do. And I’m gonna believe them. As long as I have the documents; bagfuls, boxfuls, libraries full of them, I’m going to believe the facts and not somebody screaming at me or trying to punch me in the nose.rnrnThis has resulted, ladies and gentlemen, this depravation you are suffering of, the lack of news, the lack of the facts, has resulted in what they call liberalism. I don’t blame you a bit, given the facts that your told, the only difference between negroes and White people is that the negro is a White man with dark skin. If that’s the truth, then we have no business discriminating one bit. We should marry them, we should mix with them, there should absolutely be no discrimination. If there is a difference other than the color of skin, then we ought to discuss it. But that you can’t do. The minute you try to point out that there are differences, psychological differences, other than the color of their skin, then you’re in trouble. You’re a racist. You’re a Nazi. You’re a fascist. You’re a hater. A bigot. All of these are names. Nobody discusses the facts. There’s plenty of facts to prove exactly what the negroes are. I’m not going to go over them tonight, I’ll be glad to debate that subject, too, formally, at any time anyone wants to set one up. Nobody will. They simply use name-calling. The result is this liberalism is spread throughout our country, as I said, I don’t blame those who believe it, because the facts give you no choice. If the facts are as they say they are, the jews are wonderful, the negroes are even better, then we oughta mix, the jews oughta run the country, and we oughta just fold up, us White Christians, we got no business trying to run our country. We’re too stupid. But that isn’t the fact.And what’s happened, ladies and gentlemen, is that the Roman Empire perished from senility, from old age. It decayed. It went rotten. America is not an old country. But it is decaying. It’s getting rotten. And right with me, here in Providence, I have one of the Viet Cong flags that I tore down with my own hands, and I went to jail for doing it. The Communist traitor that was parading in front of our White House went on parading and I went to jail.rnrnDid you know that, ladies and gentlemen, when I was a student here at Brown University, right after that when we got in to World War II, if anybody had paraded around with a Jap flag or a Nazi flag, I would have strangled them, and so would have every student at Brown, and the cops would have helped us. Today, people parade around with the flag of the enemy that’s killing American boys, might kill some of you kids sitting out here right now. And nobody will do anything. I try to get the VFW to go down and do something, the American Legion, the John Birch Society, ANYBODY, go down and help us stop this treason, they won’t do it. Instead the American Legion passed a resolution saying that I’m mixed up with the Communists. And the Jewish War Veterans try to get me shut up. Treason is going on in our country, right in front of us, and nobody even gets indignant. Nobody cares anymore. But that’s the least of it. Remember what Kruschev said? They asked him how come he thought he was going to take over the United States by 1972, he says ‘you’re all to liberal to fight’. Americans have become to liberal to fight and it’s true. Americans just sit around and watch ANYTHING happen, absolutely anything goes, and nobody will do anything about it.rnrnAnd this is why I so much admire the Open Mind Committee, they just told me here that they got a little bit put out when they saw these Communists speaking and I couldn’t speak, they didn’t agree with me but they’d form a committee to give me the right to speak. And that’s the kind of thing I did, that’s why I became a Nazi. Because I got sick and tired of seeing people pushed and nobody doing anything about it. Everybody’s whispering ‘well, you know what the jews did now?’ I was a conservative for years and everybody would whisper about the Eskimos and what all those people did and so forth. Well I think that’s hypocrisy and cowardice. If you are a conservative and you know what the jews are doing you ought to tell people and discuss it in the open and not sneak around behind anybodys back about it. So I did something about it, and I’m trying to form a movement to create the vigor and the strength to stop the decay and the rot that is happening in America.rnrnNow, the reason America is decaying and is getting rotten isn’t because we’re old, it isn’t because we’re senile, either. It is because we are being purposely rotted. The soul of America is being rotted out by germs. At every point that you want to look, you will find it being consciously and purposely turned rotten.rnrnLet me take a few examples. Let’s take art and culture. I majored in philosophy and I won first prize in the United States in 1948 for commercial art for a full page ad in the New York Times for the American Cancer Society, so I know something about what I’m talking about in art. And when I was studying art, they tried to get me to draw this crazy stuff, screwball paintings and so forth, and I just couldn’t see it. It looked crazy to me. And it looked crazy to the other people but they just wouldn’t admit it. I just sat this is screwy. I wouldn’t do it. So I did good art and won first prize.
