When I ran for Congress in 1990

[Excerpt from “White Nationist Bio of John de Nugent” https://www.johndenugent.com/wn-biography-of-jdn/]

Around July 1989 de Nugent moved to Metairie, Louisiana to study the electoral victory of pro-white State Representative David Duke, staying in Louisiana until the late spring of 1990, and was in a relationship 1989-91 with one of Duke’s former lady friends.

In June-August 1990, de Nugent, using the campaign name “Jack Nugent,” ran in the Republican primary for Congress in the Sixth District of Tennessee, south and east of Nashville, on a pro-white platform. He achieved 26.7 percent of the vote, albeit de Nugent suspects that massive electronic vote fraud denied him an outright victory on primary day, August 10, 1990.

He received extensive local publicity and references to his race were made by Time and the op-ed page of the New York Times.

De Nugent wrote in 2013 to a Texas friend named Ray:

When I ran for Congress in 1990, in Tennessee, I was a “damn yankee” (northerner) and from microscopic Rhode Island! I had barely set foot in that southern state and yet wanted to be their congressman.

Rhode Island (“RI”) in the upper-right of this map is a tiny state, 35 miles east-to-west and 60 miles north-to-south, no bigger than a county in Tennessee.

It is a true Southern tobacco and cotton state that was home to President and war hero Andrew Jackson, to Confederate cavalry hero Nathan Bedford Forrest, to Memphis barbecue and to Elvis Presley. It was a segregated southern state, and Martin Luther King was assassinated here in 1968.

BUT in Tennessee just 50 signatures were enough to put me on the ballot, and the district was then 92% white, and, most of all, Southerners have been overtly racial in their identity since the six-state Confederacy broke away from the US in 1861.

In 1990, however, it was exactly like a Protestant Orangeman from Northern Ireland waving a Union Jack flag and wanting to become the prime minster of Catholic southern Ireland! He would be seen as an invader and traitor! And with me not even being a former Klansman and thus at least a southerner but instead a “Nazi” and thus a kind of “Germanized American,” for them I was a quasi-foreigner as well as a “damn-yankee”! ;-)

And yet off I drove from New Orleans, alone, alone, alone, in a decrepit, unreliable 1980 Oldsmobile diesel car, and drove up from Louisiana (where I had learned all I could about pro-white candidacy from David Duke), I arrived in Nashville, got the papers to file for US Congress, and then went to the supermarket near my motel in Murfreesboro to get 50 signatures in the boiling summer sun of Tennessee, all alone.

Why all alone? Why? There was NO “movement” at all in Tennessee, no Klan, no National Alliance, no Nazis, nobody. Zero activism.

And yet I ended up as I did, either winning the Republican primary (we cannot know due to the vote fraud), or I came very close, in a state I was NOT FROM, a damn yankee northerner in a southern state, with the wrong accent, and no local support. What does a nerd like [a critic of mine, and a mathematician] know about running for office, the money needed, the organization, the willingness to be ridiculed, defamed and threatened with beatings and death?

Did [my critic] ever have a millionaire approach his manager with a $10,000 under-the-table money offer in the last, desperate week of a campaign so as to set him up for arrest by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation?

I am that same man today as I was then, Ray, but stronger, wiser, sadder, better prepared, and more full of hate to the death for the psychopathic Jew genociders.

This was a four-page letter I sent my backers explaining about Tennessee and a possible race against Senator Al Gore (the future Vice President) and 2000 Democratic nominee for President.

It strikes me how valid today, 26 years later , its message is. (I switched from running against Senator Gore to Congressman Bart Gordon due to a promise of support by a rich Gordon-hater.)
