Quotes of the Week:

“A centralised democracy may be as tyrannical as an absolute monarch; and if the vigour of the nation is to continue unimpaired, each individual, each family, each district, must preserve as far as possible its independence, its self-completeness, its powers and its privilege to manage its own affairs and think its own thoughts.

                         –James Anthony Froude (1818-1894), author and historian.
                            Source: Short Studies on Great Subjects

“Whoever appeals to the law against his fellow man is either a fool or a coward. Whoever cannot take care of himself without police protection is both. It is as cowardly to betray an offender to justice, even though his offences be against yourself, as it is not to avenge an injury by violence. It is dastardly and contemptible in a wounded man to betray the name of his assailant, because if he recovers, he must naturally expect to take vengeance himself.”

  1. “American Revolutionary Vanguard: Loved By Few, Hated By Many, Respected By All”

    Dream on, nazi boy wannabe. And your pictures of naked women with guns don’t fool anyone.

  2. Realman,

    Keith is far from a nazi, and those photos of armed gals in the buff aren’t meant to be taken seriously. Why don’t you actually read the articles and analysis offered on the site and understand what the ARV really is? Or does the thought of stretching your brain to comprehend something outside your narrow leftard mindset frighten you?

  3. LOL, So I’ve got one asshole who says I should be “stripped of my whiteness” and a rival asshole who says I’m a “Naziboy wannabe.” Now that’s progress!
