Statement of purpose and direction for the Vinlanders Social Club in 2007
Entering into the year 2007 the Vinlanders have found themselves at a crossroads. It is not uncommon for an organization that is young and innovative to have to redefine itself during its formative years and that time has come again for the Vinlanders. We created this group because we were disappointed with the movement that we dedicated our young lives to. Several different types of pro-white activists and fraternal order members came together in 2003 to create a new organization. It was to be something that was going to replace and surpass the old guard in the skinhead scene. Even by force if necessary. We accomplished our goals. With the help and friendship of other crews such as the KSS and MDS we set a new standard that will endure in the American skinhead scene for all time. It is now possible for any decent group of guys in America and possibly abroad to establish a regional crew. They can get the respect, support, and mentoring they need to be a success. They can meet yearly with other crews, as we did with the the Council 28, and exchange ideas and debate direction and tactics. No skinhead crew has been excluded. Any crews that have not made an appearance have done so out of fear or apathy. We have welcomed previous enemies as brothers. We have silenced and de-stabilized our critics. We have seen people brought together and groups and events torn apart by our influence within the movement. Our internal successes and growth have been phenomenal, while our success at organizing and working with outside groups has been slow and painful at best. After careful review of the events and circumstances, we have determined that our best course of action as Vinlanders is to separate ourselves from the racist movement. Most of the groups and crews who have been our friends will remain our friends. The Council 28 will continue in private as an outlet for good and sensible skinhead crews. However, we do not see anything positive being accomplished, for our nation or our people, by participating in the white racialist movement as it stands. We have attempted to change this movement from within and have not succeeded. It is our opinion that a large number of the people involved in the greater movement are paid informants, social outcasts, and general losers in life. While the vast majority of skinheads specifically entered into this movement for the right reasons. Some did not. Those people will never change or listen to reasoning because thier motives were all wrong from the start .
The basic premise that ALL white people are superior and decent is flawed. They are not. Our own people have harmed us the most. This movement specifically has the ability to attract the lowest common denominator. By the same token all non-whites are not savage beasts that have to be treated with disrespect in order to maintain ones “white power” credentials. You can easily find dozens of drunken, abusive. unemployed and very dangerous people at any given White Nationalist gathering. If you get out enough in society you will also find people of all races who go to work day after day, and take care of their responsibilities to society and their families. If you preach in absolutes, eventually your supporters and friends will see this basic truth and abandon you. What does this mean? Does it mean our beliefs are wrong? For the most part it does not have to. Our beliefs stem from being deprived of our individual freedoms and from our witnessing of the decline of western civilization. One of the most obvious and sometimes relevant symptoms of this decline is forced integration and the decline of our towns and neighborhoods based on racial make-up. However this is just a symptom. It is not the PROBLEM. The problems are complex and relate more to power and money than any of the issues we have been distracted with.
Politically the Vinlanders intend to work within, and subvert the established two party systems. We intend to pursue enforcement of the 10th amendment against the federal government’s excessive abuse of its powers. We also intend to work on projects more relevant to improving the quality of our lives. As an organization and a tribe we will do what we have always done. We will thwart and displace those who want to harm us, and protect and better those who support us. We believe there are three stages of conflict. Domination, open and equal conflict, and survival mode. The conservative working class has lost its dominance and the open conflict battles for now. It is time to re-think our stances and strategies and go into survival mode. That is what we will do. We are no longer in competition with anyone to “change” or “control” the white racialist movement. Others such as the NSM, Bill White, Volksfront, etc… can have it. We will no longer be regarded as “white power skinheads”, racialists, or members of the movement or old scene. We will simply be Vinlanders, modern tribalists, and followers of an older and better way. We will make our own scene, and a lot of you are welcome in it. I would like to personally ask those of you who are in this for your children and your nation to think about what we have said in this statement, and apply it to your own life. Ask yourselves if you think you can do more than you have. We know we can, and that is why we are making this change. We will always be here as your friends.
