David Lane to Billy Roper: white revolution is the only solution

Spread the love
From WN author and activist Billy Roper:
Here is an introduction I just wrote for a new Richard Scutari book…it should be published by the end of the year. I was asked to write it by another French author who is involved with the project.
In their own words: The Bruder Schweigen
By Billy Roper
     It’s a great honor for me to have an opportunity to write a few words about The Order in general and Richard Scutari in particular. Long before I began to correspond with David Lane and became, by both my definition and David’s, a close friend and confidant of his, I respected The Bruder Schweigen. While many so-called “leaders” in the White Nationalist movement punctuated their comfortable, risk-averting lives by criticizing men more heroic than themselves and quibbling over their tactics or their timing, the vast majority of us with healthy instincts were, and are, inspired by The Silent Brotherhood’s bravery and self-sacrifice.

David Eden Lane (November 2, 1938 – May 28, 2007) was an American White nationalist leader and author. A founding member of the Silent Brotherhood, he died while serving a 190-year prison sentence in the Federal prison in Terre Haute, Indiana. [1]

Lane coined the credo: We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children, also know as the Fourteen words.

Lane was arrested March 30, 1985 near Winston-Salem, North Carolina.




Living in several places throughout his childhood, Lane’s family settled in Aurora, Colorado where he attended Hinckley High School.[2] Originally aspiring to become a golf professional,[3] Lane worked as real estate broker until his license was revoked because, “I wouldn’t sell homes tocoloreds in white neighborhoods.”[4]

Lane was a member of the John Birch Society before joining the Ku Klux Klan, becoming the organizer of the Denver unit of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan in 1979. In late 1981, Lane became Colorado State Organizer of Aryan Nations.[5]

Lane met Robert Jay Mathews in July 1983 at the Aryan Nations world congress. [6]



On 22 September 1983, Lane was among the nine founding members to be sworn into die Bruder Schweigen, commonly known as The Order, a group which dedicated itself to delivering “our people from the Jew and bring total victory to the Aryan race.”[7] The group was accused of stealing over $4.1 million in armored car hijackings, killing two people, detonating bombs, counterfeiting money, organizing militaristic training camps and carrying out numerous other crimes with the ultimate goal of over-throwing the United States government.

Lane coined the 14 words, which is a popular slogan: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.” He also authored the 88 Precepts, a collection of statements on Natural Law, which combine in White nationalist shorthand to “14-88” or “14/88” [8]


Lane was serving a 190-year consecutive life sentence for racketeering (20 years), conspiracy (20 years) and violation of the civil rights of radio talk show host Alan Berg on June 18, 1984 (150 years). Berg was shot and killed in the driveway of his Denver home, by three members of the Silent Brotherhood. Lane expressed satisfaction at Berg’s death, but denied any personal involvement in the murder. He was captured on the evening of March 30-31, 1985 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.[9]

Lane was also among 14 men prosecuted for sedition in Fort Smith, Arkansas, but was acquitted. Lane was considered extremely dangerous by the American justice system and was incarcerated at various times after his conviction in the United States Penitentiary, Marion, theUnited States Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility in Florence, Colorado and the Federal Correctional Complex, Terre Haute.

While incarcerated, Lane remained an influential leader to the White nationalist movement. He contributed articles to White nationalist periodicals and websites. With his wife and Ron McVan, he ran a publishing company called 14 Word Press in Idaho to disseminate his writings.

David Lane died on May 28, 2007 in the Federal Correctional Complex, Terre Haute due to an epileptic seizure[10].


White racial preservation

Lane believed that the survival of the White Race is of paramount importance. He also believed that Christianity is problematic to the White race because it is a product of non-White Jews and is anti-Nature. Similarly, he believed that completely white nations are necessary to eliminate miscegenation which he believed is a threat. He considered White people who supported what he viewed as the Zionist conspiracy to be race traitors.[11]

     Despite the fact that I’m a Christian Identist, and David of course was not, our differing religious views never came between us. My respect for him surpassed that, and still does. In fact, when I was given a portion of David’s ashes following his death, I sent half of them to Debbie Mathews, Bob’s widow, so that they could be buried under that apple tree together. The other half now have pride of place on my bookshelf, right next to the dictionary he used for nearly two decades while he was incarcerated. I see them every day, and they inspire me, they strengthen my will to continue the fight.
     Much has been written, and more said, about the Silent Brotherhood, both collectively and individually, since it was founded in September of 1983, when I was just eleven years old. I always prefer to lean on the words of the Bruders themselves, however. David Lane wrote many kind and personal letters to myself, and my mom, who also wrote to him. However, rather than delving into the more personal discussions which passed between us, I’ll share one letter in particular, of a more political nature, which he sent to me a decade ago, in July of 2006:

“Dear Billy,

Thanks for the latest WR which I received last week. I see from the letters that there are still some readers who think as conservatives instead of as revolutionaries. So, I thought I’d write an exclusive article for WR and your website on what “revolution” means.


Why the word revolution? What does it mean? What doesn’t it mean?

First of all, it does not mean conservative, or as we shall say, con-servative or kon-servative.

My dictionary defines conservative as ‘favoring preservation of the existing order.” So, I must ask, how can any intellectually honest White person favor preservation of the political, religious, and economic systems that have led us to the brink of extinction?

Self evidently we have compromised with systems for many centuries which again has led us to the brink. So, no we are left with only two alternatives. Either find a way to reform the anti-nature and genocidal systems or a revolution with a complete new order. I write this now to show the fact that the first alternative, i.e. reform, is not possible. In fact, revolution is the only solution.

First, let’s talk about voting. Voting and the system called democracy have never been anything but a hoax to fool the masses into thinking they have a say in the systems they live under. As I have said before, a democracy is two lions and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner. Additionally, in a democracy the apparent rulers such as politicians, are only puppets while the real rulers remain safely behind the scenes.

America’s founding fathers, the honorable ones at least, knew this. So, the word democracy is not found in either the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution. America was founded as a republic in which only White men of substance and good character could vote. Of course, there were foxes in the henhouse, meaning “bad guys” among the founding fathers, too. For example, the Declaration of Independence makes the utterly insane assertion that all men are created equal, and that is universalist poison.

All of this is now irrelevant, of course. A Supreme Court Justice once remarked in a rare moment of candor, “The Constitution died in the Civil War.”

Ever since the Civil War, the deceivers who have guided any White resistance to genocide have advocated safe “respectable” activities. They constantly chant: Write your congressman, vote for some new charlatan, write a letter to the editor, or some other exercise in futility. Eat, meet, and retreat, after pointless debate, is their activity and strategy.

Well, let’s look at the potential voting pool these deceivers would have us recruit from. Some of you have heard or read my discourse on the subject before, but new admissions by the Federal race murderers verify what I have said. For example, National Public Radio admitted recently that half of America’s young children are non-White. And that is just what they admit.

The majority of America’s population is in the cities, and they are not White. The schools in Omaha, Nebraska, for example, are one-third Hispanic, one-third Negro, and one-third White. The same in Denver. In places like Los Angeles, there are almost no White children in the schools. These are the voters ten years from now. Is anyone so insane as to think they or their families or their friends or their partners in churches, sports teams, government, media, and on and on, are going to vote for White survival?

Here is a partial list of those remaining Whites who will not join our resistance to the murder of our race no matter how natural or logical our pleas.

All who are wealthy because revolution means the end of their privileged lifestyle.

All who receive paychecks from some level of government, including social security, Medicare, Medicaid, welfare, etc.

All government employees, be they federal, state, city, or county.

All military and police, including those receiving retirement checks.

All those bewitched by a religion that has for centuries given the White man’s food, technology, medicine, and wealth to colored races and now surrenders our women, power, and territory. As well as preachers who marry White women to Negroes and Hispanics and White men to Oriental females.

All those who already have a family member or a friend mated with a Skraeling. (Skraeling means non-White in Viking terminology.) They will almost always defend the interests of the mongrel offspring as more important than racial survival.

All those bewitched by patriotic propaganda so thoroughly that they chant, “My country, right or wrong.” They could care less that America is responsible for murdering or maiming some 200 million people, half of them White, many of them women and children, in endless wars and assassinations from Dixie to Cuba, to Mexico, to Panama, to Italy, to Germany twice, to Japan, to Korea, to Vietnam, to Iraq, to Iran, to Libya, to Bosnia, to Serbia, to Waco, to Ruby Ridge, to Afghanistan, and on and on. In its determination to destroy the integrity of all races, nations, and cultures, America has been an engine of holocaust, genocide, and death unmatched in human history.

All those mindless sports freaks who cheer for Negro athletes on the nearest professional or college football or basketball or baseball team. Never mind that most have a groupie harem of the last young White women. Never mind that a racial mixture like Tiger Woods married the most beautiful blonde, blue-eyed model in Sweden. Kicking, catching, throwing, and hitting various kinds of balls is far more important than racial survival to these idiots.

I could continue, but if the reader still thinks there are “respectable” peaceful solutions to stopping the Judeo-American and Judeo-Christian murder of our race, then he or she belongs in a rubber room at the funny farm.

We have two options. Either migrate to Eastern Europe and warn our folk in places like Russia, Ukraine, etc. Or carve out a nation somewhere on this continent.

If you opt for the latter, be aware that no power system gives up its power out of moral considerations. Revolutions are blood and guts, and dying and killing, and pain and heartbreak, and lost limbs and lost comrades, and prison, and on and on.

The youngest generation of White men in America face a living hell as the sins of their fathers come home to roost. Of course, on the other hand, this (perhaps) last generation of White women will have life easy as they are the most desired creatures on earth. Although the few who are racially loyal will also face the wrath of the Universalists. That is why I wrote in KD Rebel that those out of power raise armies with promises of revenge, plunder, and the seizing of women. If White men won’t fight to the death for women, power, and territory then we are doomed.

The Creator (whatever that means to you) made lions to eat lambs, hawks to eat sparrows, and the races of men to fight for power, women, and territory. Whatever the force or intelligence that our folk have called God by many names over the countless centuries may be, it is not the new age, warm and fuzzy love concept. Struggle is the divine plan. Deny the hard cruel facts of natural law and die, as individuals or as a race. Obey the natural law and the possibilities are endless.

The mechanics of revolution are available from other sources. I only pen this in another effort to get the minds of more folk on the right path. Once a person clears their mind of dogma and propaganda, reality is easy to discern. But, when the gates of the mind are opened to the first irrational premise, then there are no barriers to a flood of insanity. Reality at this time is not pleasant, but it must be faced, “Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth.”

I remain yours for the Fourteen Words, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for White children.”


David Lane”

     Robert J. Mathews, David Lane, and Bruce Pierce are no longer with us. Along with around seventy-five other patriotic Americans, Richard Scutari was tried and convicted, then was sentenced to sixty years in Federal prison for his heroic actions in 1986. He was transferred to the Marion, Illinois, Command Management Unit facility in July of 2008. As he nears his seventh decade on Earth, we still hope that he will see freedom again before he leaves it. Either way, he has contributed as much, or more, to our people and their struggle since he has been incarcerated, than he did, beforehand.
     I strongly suggest that you each read “Unbroken Warrior”, and take his message to heart. As with David Lane, I would prefer to allow Richard’s own words to inspire me, rather than anything written about him. As readers, I hope that you will, too.
